Guess What? Higher Percentage of Gay Porn in Southern States

Pornhub just tallied the % of gay porn searches across the U.S. Unsurprisingly, the states without legal same-sex marriage came out with a higher percentage of searches for gay porn:

Pornhub recently got together with our friends at Buzzfeed to bring you our latest porn statistics. They asked us if the same might be true about gay married couples? Do the states with legalized gay marriage watch more gay porn than the states where it is still illegal? The quick answer: yes. At 4.41%, states with legalized gay marriage watch 7% more gay porn than states without at 4.13%.

The results get trickier once you start looking at the map, state by state. The majority of states with a high percentage of gay viewers is in the South, where gay marriage is illegal in all states. Dixie loves dicks so much, that the percentage of gay viewers for every single state in the South is higher than the average of the legal gay marriage states.

The correlation between gay-marriage states and gay porn searches makes sense given that in areas where LGBTs remain closeted, gays would be more apt to get that relief while watching porn.

A problem with the study is that it did not break down the searches into gender or sexuality, so there may be a large margin of error and less difference than the study reveals.

Nonetheless, these studies fascinate me.
