What do we hide from others about sex?

Seth Stephens-Davidowitz looked into the data on America’s Google habits and found ‘there are more gay men in the closet than we think; that many men prefer overweight women to skinny women but are afraid to act on it; that married women are disproportionately worried their husband is gay; that a lot of straight women watch lesbian porn; and that porn featuring violence against women is more popular among women than men.’
