Staggering Statistics of Pornography

To fully understand the effects a pornography addiction has on a person as well as their life, it is important to review some porn statistics. Commercialized pornography is close to a 100 billion dollar industry and some of the statistics relating to pornography can be extremely unexpected as well as extremely alarming. Not only do many sexual predators become desensitized to the material they view, but they also get the majority of their ideas for torturing and brutalizing others by watching porn.

From 2001 to 2007, Internet porn increased from a $1 billion a year to $3 billion and from 2007 to 2011, it increased to industry valued at nearly $100 billion.

It is estimated that about 90 per cent of Internet porn users will only access online material that is free.

Porn is a dangerous business. On the average, only 17 per cent of porn performers use condoms in a heterosexual porn film, and 7 per cent of the porn performers have been diagnosed with HIV. About 90 per cent of porn stars that have been interviewed admit to drug use has a way to deal with the treatment they receive in the industry.

Out of 50 top selling adult films, 49 per cent of the scenes contained verbal aggression and 88 per cent of the scenes contained acts of physical aggression.

In a research study, it was found that 1 out of every 8 searches on the Internet are for erotic content.

Someone who has committed adultery is over twice as likely to look at porn.

1 in 5 searches for pornography are done on a mobile device.

A survey in 2010 discovered that over a quarter of 16 to 17-year-old teenagers had been exposed to online nudity at a time when they did not want to see it. 20 per cent of the 16-year old’s and 30 per cent of the 17-year old’s have received a sexually explicit text message.

Around 70 per cent of teenagers hide their online behavior from their parents, and 35 per cent of teenage boys say they cannot count the number of times they have viewed pornographic videos.

More than half of boys see their first pornographic image before the age of 13. 83 per cent of boys and 57 per cent of girls interviewed in a college study said they had seen images of group sex online.

Almost 68 per cent of adult men and about 18 per cent of adult women use porn at least once each week.

According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 56 per cent of the divorce cases involve one of the parties having an obsession with pornographic websites.
