An interesting study from ABC News about which US states consume the most online porn.

It appears what is often seen as a highly conservative states is the biggest online porn consumer:

The biggest consumer, Utah, averaged 5.47 adult content subscriptions per 1000 home broadband users

McCain voters seem way more likely to subscribe to porn sites then Obama voters:

Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year’s presidential election – Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama.

Interesting correlation between “family values” and higher porn consumption:

Residents of 27 states that passed laws banning gay marriages boasted 11% more porn subscribers than states that don’t explicitly restrict gay marriage. States where a majority of residents agreed with the statement “I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage,” bought 3.6 more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed. A similar difference emerged for the statement “AIDS might be God’s punishment for immoral sexual behaviour.”
