Subject: Porn in the USA: Conservatives are biggest consumers

Americans may paint themselves in increasingly bright shades of red
and blue, but new research finds one thing that varies little across
the nation: the liking for online pornography.
A new nationwide study (pdf) 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.
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.
