The Kardashian clan are a competitive lot. So we wonder how Kim Kardashian has taken the news that little sister Kylie Jenner has now surpassed her when it comes to the number of searches on US sex website Pornhub.

Not the best claim to fame to boast about at the dinner table, the news comes just days after the youngest Kardashian sibling has graced the cover of Playboy in the states.

A Pornhub spokesman told PageSix. “The spike we’re seeing in searches for Kylie right now following the Playboy news is insane. It’s around where Kim’s searches were following her Paper mag shoot in 2014.”

Dubbed the Pleasure issue, the shoot was creative directed by Kylie’s partner, rapper, Travis Scott and sees the young billionaire pose in various states of undress outside. Scott even features in some of the images.

The spokesman went on to say the searches had “skyrocketed” after the photos were released onto the net.

Jenner herself has posted several of the shots on her Instagram feed.

Both family and fans were quick to comment. Big sister, Khloe Kardashian wrote, “You are so beautiful Kylie!!!! Wow wow wow wow”, while Playboy simply said, “Kyling it 🔥” and another proclaimed that the young billionaire was “breaking the internet”.

According to the Pornhub stats, Jenner’s searches jumped by a massive 661 percent single-day increase. To put that in perspective, when Kim Kardashian made headlines with her bum-baring snaps for Paper magazine, her searches increased by 629 percent.

The photos were taken by Sasha Samsonova. The Ukranian photographer is known to be a good friend of Kylie and has even been dubbed “the unofficial Kardashian photographer” having previously shot campaigns for Kyle Skin, KKW Beauty and Kylie and Kendall.
