Why is there an increased interest in clown porn?

The timing of the interest is no coincidence.

interest in clown pornHalloween parties are within touching distance. Typically, people are already planning their costumes. Unfortunately, many have decided to get clown costumes and were unable to wait to try them on. Then, in full creepy clown attire, some people have been standing out in public scaring others. A few have taken this too far and attracted substantial media attention, including comments from the White House.

Naturally, this has led to people looking up clowns on Pornhub. Makes total sense right? Personally, Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story is our favourite.
