Pornhub Says Southern States Watch the Most Gay Porn

In a quest to find where the largest amounts of gay pornography were being watched, Pornhub and Buzzfeed crunched the latest porn statistics. The numbers were broken down according to states with and without legalized gay marriage and the following question was posed: Do states with same-sex marriage watch more gay porn?

Well, yes. 4.41 percent of states where gay marriage is legal watch 7 percent more gay porn than states where it’s still illegal.

Even more illuminating, however, is what happens when you look at the numbers state by state. In a delightful example of hypocrisy, every single state in the South watches gay porn at a higher percentage than the average of states where gay marriage is legal.

Mississippi, where butt sex is still illegal, holds the record for the top consumer of gay porn at 5.58 percent. Louisiana comes in at a close second at 5.44 percent, with Georgia in third at 5.38 percent.

Of course, it’s important to note that Pornhub’s data doesn’t track their users on a micro-granular level based on “lesbian,” sexual orientation, etc.

“So for example, lesbian searches can account for, like, 40% of a city’s searches, but 80% of those searchers may likely be men. So to answer, it’s a rundown of gay porn from male users,” Pornhub’s insights team explained.

Here’s to you, Dixie.
