There will be a 10,000% increase in searches for a certain type of porn this week

The luck of the Irish, eh?

The world turns green for a day on March 17 every year. Green food, green buildings and even green rivers; the obsession with the Irish knows no bounds.

And that extends far further than we thought - even as far as the bedroom.

That's right, leading adult film site Pornhub has revealed that searches for Leprechaun porn increased by almost 10,000% on St. Patrick's Day last year.

The number of people searching for St. Patrick’s Day-themed adult films increased by nearly 6000% and searches for  the word 'Irish' increased by 600%.

And its not just those abroad, traffic from Ireland increased by 5% on the site on St. Patrick's Day last year compared to an average day.

And here was us thinking St. Patrick got rid of all the snakes, heh?
