Guess Which Part Of The U.S. Watches The Most Porn... Just Guess

Oh God, indeed.

A new study has found that in the last six years, religious people living in America’s Bible Belt – a term usually used to describe areas of Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky and North Carolina – watched the most porn nationwide. 

Seeking an association between religious beliefs and porn consumption, researchers looked at porn searches across the country over the last six years.

Along with calculating normal porn data across the U.S., they also analyzed number of people they say believe in God in each state, as well as the number of folks who take the Bible word for word and how often they attend church.

Their findings, published in the Journal of Sex Research, revealed that Evangelical Protestants watched the most porn out of everyone in the country.

The researchers also found that the lowest number of porn searches took place in the states where fewer people reported being religious.

While it’s not exactly difficult to guess why deeply religious people are flocking to the Internet for stimulation, Dr. Justin Lehmiller ventures a few theories.

Perhaps least surprisingly, he suggests that because Evangelists are often sexually deprived, online porn is the “primary sexual outlet for people who live in highly religious states.”

He also theorizes, however, that the strict rules around sex enforced by many religions create a sexual paradox wherein people are watching porn to regain some semblance of sexual freedom – a raunchy kind of reverse psychology, suggested Lehmiller.

Time to tighten those chastity belts, perhaps?

The fight to legalize cannabis nationwide should begin by helping veterans get access to medical marijuana, according to Massachusetts Representative - and 2020 presidential candidate - Seth Moulton (D). Right now, vets can't use medical marijuana without the risk of losing their Veteran's Affairs benefits, even if they live in a state that has legalized medicinal cannabis. In fact, so much as mentioning cannabis use to their doctor is enough for a vet to get their benefits stripped.
