"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."

Blame Harry Potter and the gays ... and Al Gore.

I also wonder if there is some kind of group discount.

>>>BUT, contrary to what it seems you would have the world believe about your beloved church, it's not because more Mormons are becoming less worthy>>>

What are you going on about? I posting an article that had correlation, IMO, to religion. I would have posted it regardless of what religion it may have related to.

I don't troll websites of any faith looking for news. I don't have time to. To be fair I would have to do that for every faith. If it hits my local news or websites that post national news I'll post it, if someone here doesn't beat me to it.

Frankly, the article makes sense. Utah has a young population and young people are more likely to view porn and than older people. Conservative areas usually aren't going to have adult stores to purchase porn so, people will turn to the internet. Like the article stated, more liberal areas, will more likely to have adult stores so people may not feel the need to turn to the internet for porn. The article while pointing out Utah is #1, also states that conservative areas are higher anyway, even areas where LDS pop is low. All this tells us that Utah mormons are human like the rest of us, and conservatives aren't the upholders of morality they'd like us to believe.

And by the way, Sheila >>>your faith>>>? Aren't you LDS as well?
