You've also got to consider the fact that quite a lot of people (by which I mean me, and therefore assume everyone else) search based on the situation they want to see in the video, rather than the exact look of the woman involved. So for example, you're probably more likely to get videos of women in a dominant or powerful position by search for milf rather than teen. It's interesting that Japanese is a more popular search term than Asian, and I'd argue that's more to do with the qualities of the pornography they make than the fact that people are more attracted to Japanese women than other Asian women.

As for the Venus statue, there seems to be a tendency for people to assume that because a female figure is represented in art, it therefore must represent not just the artist's view of an attractive female figure, but also mainstream cultural norms of the time. There's nothing to suggest that the Venus statue is intended to be a representation of an attractive woman any more than this

is ancient China's idea of the ideal male physique. It could be a representation of a respected older woman, or a motherly figure, or a god, or a fertility symbol, or prosperity, or any number of other things.

There's that, but I am talking about something else entirely. Like a man married to a woman, but watches and collects gay male or transexual action films. That's actually quite common.

According to a confessional book written by an ex-Playmate, Hefner would watch gay male videos while bonking his Playmates. Maybe she's just bitter after being kicked out of the Playboy Mansion, but I don't find that hard to believe.
