Conservatives Reported To Watch More Porn

February 28, 2009

US (ChattahBox) ā€“ A new nationwide study (pdf) has shown that states that boast a widely Conservative population buy the largest percent of online porn subscriptions, with 8 out of 10 top consumer states having electorally voted for McCain.

The most notoriously religious states seemed to have the highest number of porn consumers, with Utah taking the number one spot. The bottom states for paid porn were Liberal or Democrat states, which showed a significant increase.

Likewise, those states that have a ban on gay marriage show an 11% higher increase in porn viewing, a significant amount.

While all of these refer to pay sites, it is unclear how the numbers would increase when you took into consideration the wide amount of free pornography available on the Internet. With the expansion of sites such as PornHub, which allow you to view content streaming for free, most don’t have to whip out their credit cards.

“One natural hypothesis is something like repression: if you’re told you can’t have this, then you want it more,” Harvard Business School’s Benjamin Edelman, who ran the report from information given from unnamed porn studios, commented.

One thing is for sure: the Conservative use of pay sites is hardly keeping with their so-called image of being fiscally responsible.
