Who thinks male rompers are sexy? No one, according to Pornhub search data.

After performing some behind-the-scenes wizardry, the company today informed us that not a single one of you has ever performed a search for ‘Romphim’ on Pornhub. Male rompers, as it turns out, just aren’t that sexy. Turtlenecks actually get more searches than this ridiculous fashion trend.

When ACED Design launched “the world’s favorite male romper” (Romphim) on Kickstarter, you could feel the collective eyerolling internet-wide. The outfit’s so ridiculous it was easy to assume the product itself was a joke. And then people started to buy it. All told, ACED snagged over $350,000 on the crowdfunding platform from over 3,000 backers. The male romper was no longer a joking matter.

Well, I mean it was, but… it quickly became a joke with a life of its own.

This isn’t the start of a porno. Nobody wants to fuck a man in a romper.

Pornhub then dug a little deeper, finding data on other really bad fashion choices. As it turns out, people are searching for onesies, mullets, mom jeans, and Crocs — but not Romphim. Let that sink in for a minute. People actually find Crocs and mullets sexier than male rompers.

Here’s a list of just a few of the things the community finds sexier than men in toddler clothes.

And if you’re looking for another point of reference, take fidget spinners (please). Pornhub users searched for the annoying devices made to appease the ADHD generation some 2.5 million times in just 10 days. In over a month since the launch of the Romphim, nothing.

Let’s hope it stays that way.
