(But I'll take my porn online!)
A new set of stats has come up which we KNEW people would love: Red States purchase more pornography per capita than Blue States!
We love Andrew Sullivan for bringing this to our attention:
WARNING! Read the sign on the left! HE really means it! So don't go touching any impure parts of your body while reading this!
From New Scientist,
A new nationwide study of anonymised credit-card receipts from a major online adult entertainment provider finds little variation in consumption between states.
"When it comes to adult entertainment, it seems people are more the same than different," says Benjamin Edelman at Harvard Business School.Does that mean gay men and straight men have the same libidos? Hmmm...Not according to straight women!
However, there are some trends to be seen in the data. 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.
So the Bible Belt parties more Below the Belt!
"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.
And it gets better (or worse, depending which side of the smut/sin fence you are):
And the prize for running, jumping or standing gall and HYPOCRISY:
So, abstain on Sunday, but kill more kittens on Monday.We all know about Bakker and Swaggart and Haggard, but let's not forget the people in the pews. Hypocrisy rests with them as well.Church-goers bought less online porn on Sundays – a 1% increase in a postal code's religious attendance was associated with a 0.1% drop in subscriptions that day. However, expenditures on other days of the week brought them in line with the rest of the country.
They're the ones that support "family values" they "cast stones" and "pluck out...if it offends thee."
They're the ones who vote for "hockey moms" and for "no gay rights" proposals.
They're the ones vote righteously for the death penalty.
They're the ones who say they love every human being, but vote for war.
O.K., I know you've been waiting impatiently for the next statistical orgasm.
