Is porn a family value?

Posted By on Fri, Feb 27, 2009 at 12:51 PM

I get e-mail. Here, a link to the summary of a study of on-line pornography purchasing patterns.

Here's the full study. Generally, Internet porn subscriptions don't vary much state by state. But Utah stands out, ranking at the top of all the various metrics. Arkansas doesn't make the top 10 per thousand residents in porn subscriptions in the service studied, but that may be because of a relatively low rate of access to broadband. In the list  for on-line purchases per thousand broadband users, Arkansas ranks No. 7.

The study concludes that porn purchasing is somewhat more prevalent in states that have adopted conservative positions on religion, gender roles and sexuality.

Says a Harvard Business School prof:

"Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be consumers of the very things they claimed to be outraged by," Edelman says.
