        Conservative states consume the most internet porn.  Damn
        hypocritcal bastards.
        \_ The bigger question is how many are GAY porns? That's against
           Jesus Christ and God's belief.
        \_ Funny, then you would think conservatives would know what
           "teabagging" means.
           \_ Ha ha!  I didn't know this:
       -- !OP
        \_ You know, I think Jesus would hate most American "Christians".
        \_ There is one other small problem with Edelman's efforts. His very
           first reference in the paper is built on a source long known to be
           completely false. On the second page of the report on his study
           published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives (Vol 23, #1,
           Winter 2009), Edelman relies on the claims of porn industry trade
           publication AVN Media Network that says the online porn industry
           made $2.8 billion dollars in 2006. AVN also claims that the entire
           porn industry pulled in nearly $13 billion in 2006.

           However, it has long been known that the numbers presented by AVN
           are in no way verifiable. Forbes Magazine took AVN.s claims to task
           back in 2001 (after one of AVN's earlier reports of porn industry
           takings) and found the numbers impossible to verify. In 2001 Forbes
           reckoned that the industry could not have made more than $4 billion,
           a number far less than the $10 billion AVN was then claiming. A
           2007 Boing, Boing article also discussed the unverifiable AVN
           \_ What does that have to do with his original research using
              credit card data?
        \_ Give Conservatives a break. It's pretty lonely living in the
           farms and suburbia.
