Southern States Watch the Most Gay Porn in America

8.2 k

Who watches the most gay porn in the United States? Surprisingly, it’s not the states with the most liberal views. According to new findings, there is more gay porn viewing in states where same-sex marriage is illegal, particularly in the south.

According to PornHub, which teamed up with BuzzFeed to release the results, the highest number of gay porn searches come out of Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia — 5.58 percent, 5.44 percent, and 5.38 percent, respectively. Also on the top ten list were Florida, Alabama, and New Mexico.

Every southern state had more gay porn searches than the average in states where same-sex marriage is legal. In general, states with gay marriage bans watch 7 percent more gay porn than states where gay marriage is legal.

Some states with legalized same-sex marriage also had high percentages, like New York, which ranked fourth, and California, which ranked sixth.

And the states least likely to peruse the web for gay porn? Alaska, Montana, North Dakota and Idaho, which all fell below 3 percent.

The Pornhub results are “a rundown of gay porn from male users,” a spokesperson for the team told BuzzFeed. Since the site doesn’t track users’ gender or sexual orientation, a search for “lesbian porn” would likely have come from men.

The results are consistent with a Google study that found that Uganda, where the culture and laws are fiercely anti-gay, was top on the list of countries searching for gay sex.

Curiosity and repressed sexual urges are both likely contributing factors to the findings.
