Religious Conservatives love their porn

I got a kick out of this article from New Scientist.  It seems that porn consumers  share a correlation with both conservatism and religion...and not in the way some might think.

This study finds that porn subscriptions and credit card consumers are greatest in the most conservative and the most religous states.  Perhaps not such a surprise to most here !

Porn in the USA

"Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds.

"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".


"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."

"Eight of the top 10

"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."

The Sarah Palin Effect?


Nobody I know was brainwashed into being an atheist.
