Why Is This Important
Because PornHub is exposing some sexual fetish subcultures that we couldn't have even imagined.
Long Story Short
PornHub recently revealed that there is a sizeable group of people searching for My Little Pony porn on the site.
You'll never be able to look at a picture of a My Little Pony pony the same way ever again.
PornHub just released the findings of study that reveals a certain subsection of young Millennial men are really into porn involving the colorful, magical little ponies from the popular '80s/'90s TV show.
The subsect is part of a larger group known as Bronies. Bronies are generally adult or teenage male fans of the 2010 My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic reboot of My Little Pony (or MLP, as it is shortened to within the community). They were the topic of a 2012 documentary called Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Fans of My Little Pony.
The sexual deviant splinter cell of the Bronies are known as "Cloppers." According to PornHub's findings men are more likely to be Cloppers than women and are, on average, between 18 and 24. Just to clarify something, as I didn't realize this myself, MLP porn involves real human women dressed as ponies. It's not cartoons having sex with each other, although I'm sure this exists as well.

This is where things start to get really freaky. PornHub created an infographic of the terms most frequently searched by Cloppers:

On the list are terms like "clop", which similar to "fapping", is the word used to refer to masturbating to MLP porn. Also on the list are names of different MLP characters such as "Pinkie Pie" "Queen Chrysalis" and "Futa". The PornHub article explains that Futa is short for Fluttershy, a popular MLP character, "who has been pornified into ‘Futashy’ as a fusion of her name and hentai term ‘futanari’ which refers to a character who mostly appears female but has male genitalia." We're far down the rabbit hole here people.
The study found that most Cloppers are from the U.S. or the U.K., but, for whatever reason, there are particularly enthusiastic communities in Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine. MLP porn is 462% more likely to be searched for in Belarus than anywhere else in the world.
A Mic.com article on the findings noted that Cloppers are sort of the "black sheep" of the Brony community. "There’s a fear that the small percentage of cloppers will give the rest of bronies a bad name by perpetuating the idea that the fandom totally derives from a sexual fetish," wrote EJ Dickson in a 2014 Daily Dot article about MLP porn.
I mean, if you think about it, isn't the Brony fandom already the black sheep of the regular My Little Pony fandom consisting of little girls? Shouldn't they just celebrate the fact that MLP touches many different people in many different, sometimes erotic, ways? As the name of the show says "Friendship is magic." It's time to love your fellow Brony, Bronies, even if he's a Clopper.
