At Jezebel.com: According to a nationwide studyof anonymous online credit card transactions, Americans living in traditionally religious, conservative statesconsume more online porn than their godless liberal blue state fellow citizens, with Utah leading the way."Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year's presidential election – Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama."
States that banned gay marriage had 11% more porn subscriptions than states that had not banned gay marriage. And, as Callaway notes, "States where a majority of residents agreed with the statement "I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage,"bought 3.6 more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed.Green Man: Ha!! That means a lot of Mormons are watching online porn, which doesn't surprise me at all. I was born and raised Mormon, so I can attest to you that they are severely, sexually repressive. Teens are pressured into dating only fellow Mormons, but not until they are 16 years old. Kissing and having sex are strictly forbidden until marriage and masturbation is seen as perverted and unnatural. But, being a horny teen makes it hard to resist all forms of sexual pleasure.
So, I gave in and masturbated while looking at porn, which any psychologist will tell you is normal and natural for teens. However, being brainwashed that sexual pleasures are "evil" for teens, I felt terrible afterwards but I kept doing it. Even though I continued looking at pornography, I figured it was better than having "risky sex" which is also why I think you see so much online porn use by Utahns and Mormons. As well as in other conservative, religious states. It's an outlet for all the sexually repressed Mormons who want to keep their "indulgences" discrete and anonymous.
Meanwhile, they'll often condemn the pornography industry as a way to blame others for their own sexual confusion. Rather than consciously dealing with their desires. This is what Sigmund Freud called sexual projection. Another way that sexually repressed people deal with their sexual confusion is to condemn sexual behavior that the repressed person feels is worse than their own personal, sexual weaknesses. Such as a religious man who secretly looks at porn condemning those who have sexual affairs. This allows his repressed mind to justify his own weaknesses by saying at least his "sin" isn't as bad as the "sin" of having an affair.
