British Are Major Consumers of Internet Porn
Recently I placed a post on the demise of the .xxx domain and the associated lawsuit to uncover documents about the involvement of the United States government in the decision. I also mentioned the popularity of online porn with some very unscientific information from Google Trends. Since then, The Independent UK is reporting on a survey that shows record numbers of Britons are downloading and viewing Internet porn.
The highlights are that more than 9 million men used porn web sites in the last year compared with 2 million in in 2000. That's 40% of the male population of Britain. Women are also consumers with a 30% rise from 1 million to 1.5 million in the past 6 months. A more shocking statistic is that approximately seven million children have bumped into pornography "while looking for something else." Will the Justice Department use this or comparable U.S. information in the COPA trial?
