Survey: Porn Consumption Becomes More Mainstream and Acceptable

Survey: Porn Consumption Becomes More Mainstream and Acceptable

The Internet is fast becoming the primary method of communication and entertainment.  And with this ubiquity comes a change in how we interact with our entertainment and with each other.

There is no better barometer of this phenomenon than porn. Porn accounts for over 30 percent of total internet traffic and receives more visitors per month than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined.

As interactions via the Internet become normalized, so do attitudes towards once taboo subjects like sex and pornography. A survey sponsored by Cam4.com seems to corroborate this notion.

Over 1,000 American adults, aged 18 and over, participated in the survey.  The results of the survey indicate that porn consumption has become widely integrated into our daily lives.  For example, 53 percent of those surveyed watch pornography as a couple, and 66 percent would watch porn with their partner if asked.

“By giving couples a way to break their routine, pornography has changed and may now become meaningful in a marital setting, where it appears to be a way of spicing up a couple’s sex life.”

Another interesting insight; 90 percent of the males surveyed admitted to watching porn while 60 percent of women admitted to doing the same.  Also, 54 percent of the respondents acknowledged to having sex while watching porn.

One long held perception is completely turned on it’s head.  Those who consumed the most adult entertainment tended to have the most sexual partners.  So, porn viewing doesn’t seem to be the sex  substitute that many believe.

Thanks to the Internet, sexual social mores are trending towards the mainstream, which is a very good thing.
