Really Dirty–Online Porn

The question I’d like to answer in this post: do we have an “digital porn footprint.”  It’s a question that concerns many Americans.  Not me of course.  The interesting thing about digital footprints is that the Dirt left behind is a a mix of lots of different conditions porn site being one of them (see my personal list of Dirt causing activity–you’ll note that visiting porn site is NOT on there).  

So should 16 year old boys everywhere be concerned?  Of for that matter should the state of Utah?  As reported by the Consumerist, and thanks to our friends at Edelman (I bet Glynis spearheaded this project), we now know what we all thought, that the fine, ubber religious Mormons of Utah are the biggest smut watchers.  Or at least the state that has the highest online porn subscribership (5.47 people out of 1000).  That doesn’t seem too high to me, but still makes for a funny data point.

Utah #1

 

 

 

 

 

So, should we be worried?  I think not.  Unless after your online smut swigging, your online porn peeping, or your online nudie noodling, you don’t delete your cookies, think you’re safe.  BUT if you are actually PAYING for online pornography (which I don’t know why you would) I think you are leaving a digital footprint that could, one day, get you caught in digital quicksand.  Naughty, naughty…

  1. Interesting report from Consumerist. So pornography subscription rates are really tied more to geographic limitations and lack of access to offline adult entertainment, not necessarily religious affiliation. That really doesn’t explain Florida though, which has some major media markets and (I thought) more brick and mortar porn businesses than one of its neighboring states. It’d be interesting if they could break this down by age demographic too. Might be alot of retirees on those FLA accounts. Now I’m a bit skeeved.

    • You make a very good point Tom. Interestingly when I blog about porn my pages views go through the roof. I think I might be on to something here…
