    Utah: Online Porn Capital Of The USA






    Politically conservative Utah No. 1 in online porn subscriptions


    Despite its conservative political bent, Utah's per-capita appetite for online pornography makes it the nation's run-away red-light state.

    A study by a Harvard Business School professor shows that Utah outpaces the more conservative states -- which all tend to purchase more Internet porn than other states.

    Online porn subscription rates are higher in states that enacted conservative legislation banning same-sex marriage or civil unions, and where surveys show support for conservative positions on religion, gender roles and sexuality, according to the Harvard analysis published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives.

    Utah has the nation's highest online porn subscription rate per thousand home broadband users, at 5.47, while the nearby states of Idaho and Montana showed the lowest rates of 1.98 and 1.92, respectively, according to the study. The study examined online porn usage from 2006 to 2008.

    Utah's No. 1 score may have to do with its demographics, particularly its large population of young people, said the author of the study, Benjamin Edelman.

    For instance, Internet porn subscriptions are particularly popular in states with young populations, in the 15 to 24 age group, while people over 65 are less likely to subscribe.
    Oddly enough there is a huge spike in porn usage coming from the home of a Bio Chemist in Utah.

    Income can be another factor, with each $1,000 increase in average household income pushing up the number of subscribers. Rates also go up with a college education and among people who are divorced, although marriage and graduate degrees have the opposite effect.

    But, "even when I control for income, age, education, and marital status, Utah residents still consume disproportionately more than people from other states," Edelman said.

    Another possibility for Utah's top porn billing may be the scarcity of adult entertainment outside the home.

    "If it is distinctively difficult to get this material in retail locations in Utah, Utah residents who seek such material may have to get it online," said Edelman, in an e-mail. "On net, then, Utah residents would be buying more online adult entertainment -- but perhaps not more total adult entertainment. That said, I analyzed only online adult entertainment, so I'm not in a position to assess the magnitude of this effect."

    Although Utah is headquarters for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Edelman found that regions where people regularly attend religious services are not statistically different from their counterparts in more secular regions. But users who do attend religious services tend to shift their adult entertainment sessions to other days of the week than the day of services.

    Pamela Atkinson, head of the Utah Coalition Against Pornography, said other indications -- such as Utah ranking second in Google searches for "hot sex" and "naughty" -- back up what Edelman has found.

    "What I do know is that from all accounts the problem is really growing in Utah," she said. "People spending more time on the Internet are realizing this is something they can do in the privacy of their own rooms and their own homes."

    Daniel Weis, spokesman for the Colorado-based Christian group, Focus on The Family, said the study "is credible only for what it is studying, which is very little."

    "My caution is that people do not extrapolate that this is a report for the entire nation," he said. "The fact that conservative-minded people are fighting porn doesn't mean that they go home and look at it."

    The study used data from anonymous credit card sales from a top-10 Internet porn provider that operates hundreds of Web sites offering a wide variety of adult entertainment. Edelman then correlated that data with ZIP code information for his analysis.

    I understand, If you watch porn and partake in self abuse as long as it's in your own home. It's better than loving another human being of the same gender and being amorous in your own home.

    what about it's better to spill your seed in the belly of a whore than to waste it on the ground?
