Here’s some interesting facts I just happened upon…

Here’s some interesting facts I just happened upon while looking at (of all places) MySpace. They are all related to pornography, but that was the nature of the documentary:

  • 12% of all websites are pornographic;
  • 25% of all search engine requests have to do with porn;
  • 35% of all downloads in a day are pornographic in nature;
  • Every second 28, 258 people are viewing porn on the Internet;
  • $89.00 is spent on pornography every second;
  • 266 new porn sites appear in the Internet every day;
  • Sex is the most searched word on the Internet;
  • The United States received $2.84 billion from porn revenue in ’06;
  • Only 72% of Internet porn users are male;
  • Surprisingly, 70% of Internet porn traffic occurs during the working day hours of 9am – 5pm. Obviously, for those unemployed and not exactly looking for a job, this is the ideal time when you’re brother is out with his friend or attending job interviews;
  • There is an estimated 372 million porn pages out there on the Internets:
    • 3% produced by the UK;
    • 4% produced by Germany;
    • 89% produced by the US;
  • The adult website with the highest traffic is AdultFriendFinder.com
  • The following countries have banned pornography:
    • Saudi Arabia
    • Iran
    • Bahrain
    • Egypt
    • UAE
    • Kuwait
    • Malaysia
    • Indonesia
    • Singapore
    • Kenya
    • India
    • Cuba
    • China
  • The most visited websites daily:
    • #1 MSN.com – 220 million visits
    • #4 YouTube.com – 196 million (this I would have never guessed. Now I know why it’s worth so much)
    • #49 AdultFriendFinder.com – 7.2 million
    • #145 NYTimes.com – 4.1 million (Hahaha!)

I actually find a lot of those figures surprising, like the revenue one. How hypocritical is the government, espousing the moral word of the Church and what have you and then raking in $2.84 billion a year from the very business that they would have you believe is corrupting the
