Politics and porn yes! there is a correlation….

Harvard recently conducted a study about porn usage in the US – and by that I mean they just watched my computer. It studied the total bandwidth that each State (and two Commonwealths’) used when viewing porn. As it turned out the red States downloaded more porn than the blue states. The winner by far was Utah.

A Harvard study provided objective evidence about actual consumption of online pornography by paying customers. This study found a consistent pattern of more conservative, and more religious, states spending more on pornography.

The biggest consumer of Internet pornography was Utah with 5.47 subscriptions per thousand home broadband users compared to Montana the lowest state with 1.92 subscribers per thousand. Study author, Benjamin Edelman of Harvard Business School focused on broadband users because pornography is a bandwidth hog.

States that banned gay marriage (implying conservative political views) had 11 percent more porn subscribers.

However, I think the good folks at Harvard have overlooked a major component. Rather than viewing the data, Red State Vs Blue State, Harvard should look for trends in ugliness. I mean common if you’re in Miami why would go to a strip club?
