A Dozen (or so) Alarming Trends Directly Related to Porn Consumption.

Share

If statistics related to porn consumption are correct, then it’s safe to assume that close to eight out of ten men view porn on a consistent basis.

If they are, as some believe, inflated, then it’s still safe to assume that somewhere between six out of ten men view porn consistently.

By consistent, I mean an average of several times a month.

Just. Can’t. Stop.

That’s a pretty conservative estimation.  Admittedly, stats on viewing are difficult to determine, since viewing habits are secretly kept and rarely shared.  As one who has viewed porn regularly, I know that viewing once leads to viewing twice.

This, in turn, leads to viewing more and more often.

Further, we are finding that our young men, ages 8 – 18, are viewing porn at an alarming rate.

As Lay’s Potato Chip’s marketing campaign once popularized the saying, “Bet you can’t eat just one,” I’d say that it’s similarly true of porn to say that “Bet you can’t view just once.”

Indeed, it’s addictive; as you watch more, you want more.

But, what of women?  Are the stats similar or is there a vast divergence between the genders as it relates to viewing habits and porn?

While stats on women and porn viewing are somewhat less alarming, it seems that (especially with younger ages) that the numbers are hovering around three to four out of ten, as well.  Studies conducted over the last few years have found that 30% of the female population view porn at least once a week!

Not to put too fine a point the problem, below are the statistics released by PornHub that reveal how much porn was viewed on their website alone last year, 2016:

  • 4,599,000,000 Hours
  • 191,625,000 Days
  • 27,375,000 Weeks
  • 524,464 Years
  • 53,464 Decades
  • 5,246 Centuries

Those numbers are staggering.

When considering the global porn industry, numbers vary considerably. Estimates, however, range somewhere in the 100+ billion dollars per year range.

Numbers and annual revenue of this magnitude beg the question:

“What might be the outcomes of viewing habits that are so widely held by so many people?”

That question is one I will attempt to answer in the next few posts.
