Which State Is The Porn Capital of America?

Harvard Business School just published an article announcing which state was the highest ranking in the consumption of pornography per capita. Any guesses?

It is probably a state with tons of atheists who have no moral code and completely denigrate the sanctity of marriage...oh no?

It's Utah? How shocking...

hmmm...

interesting that my first invite to an event in utah is a sex-toy-party? i'd never been invited to one in cali!

I wonder if one reason for this is Utah's unusually restrictive laws for sexually explicit magazines, books and DVDs. (They are banned in stores, and you can't even order such materials by mail for delivery in Utah.)

Human nature doesn't vary too much from state to state.

HAHAHAHA.....Sorry Nicole!! Just having the wife break you in to Utah!! See you guys when I get back from this hell hole!! :)

MoHo, I think it is partially that. I also think that the strict laws about other vices (Bars, strip clubs, etc) add to it as well.

People are people and they will always have vices, so they will use the path of least resistance. Internet porn is easily accessible with minimal risk of exposure...maybe exposure was a poor choice of words...
