Land of Porn

01Jun06

I've landed in Porn Capital. Britain is officially the world leader of porn downloads, which is a staggering result considering the U.S. is about 5 times larger than UK in population size. Forget the World Cup, this is truly the one phallic trophy they should be proud to lay their hands (or hand) on.

0041.jpgFor a country that boasts international exports such as Kate Moss, Elizabeth Hurley and Keira Knightley, the real celebrities are surprisingly found on the Internet. With names such as Abi Titmuss, it's really no wonder why.

The survey by Nielsen NetRatings for the Independent on Sunday newspaper found nine million men – around 40 per cent of British males – surfed the Net’s fruitier wares in the past year. This is up by a staggering and engorged 350 per cent on 2000. Hell, 2.5 million surfed porn in the last month alone, bringing the stat up to 1-in-4 men. Still, while Brit males are voting with their hands for their favourite pastime, British ladies are also showing a growing interest in online nakedness. Around 1.5 million ladies downloaded some porn in the past year, up just 30 per cent on previous figures.

I guess all I wanted to say was i'm both amused and extremely relieved to see that neither China nor India topped the rankings. It would be a little too much to swallow.
