Yet they only spend 45 minutes a month looking at porn. Sad.

It's impolite to admit to looking at porn for more than 45 minuutes a month.

Would'nt all visitors of pr0n sites be classified as "manual workers"?

"The worst offenders were students..."

Why the hell are they offenders? If that many people condone pr0n (and I assume that if they spend more than 5 minutes checking it out they do), then where is the offense?

There can`t be a single home computer with a net connection that hasn`t accessed porn. Plus, surely we`ve learnt by now that all surveys are such utter crap that you may as well get the numbers from a random number generator.

Liked the bit about the pornmongers being in trouble though. Hopefully all the newbies have learnt by now that paysites suck ass and you can get infinite porn for free, and the lack of memberships and the now zero ad revenue will kill the pornmongers off for good. Along with their damn toplists, pop-ups, vote tricks, porn java/flash ad banners, search engine hijacking, and mail and newsgroup spamming.

Gasmasher: It's one of those across-the-pond-cultural-misunderstanding-type-thingies. In this article, 'offenders' isn't really bad, its just bad in a cheeky way. They aren't suggesting they should be flogged or anything (unless they want to be)

Isn't it still super expensive to get online in the UK? Per minute charges just on the call, or something like that. Students would be on a school network, so no charges. ;-) Why pay for boobies when you can go out and get some fine british arse?

Gasmasher: They're trying to make it sound illegal.

These statistics are a bunch of crap. If you look at NetValue's webpage (the company that did the analysis) you'll see they gather their info by sampling the web surfing of people who agree to be monitored. If you know people are watching, you're going to alter your behavior (especially if you're doing something embarassing like looking at porn). It could just be that Germans care less about whether people know they're looking at porn and Norweigans care more. They also don't say how many people downloaded porn for later...use, or what were considered "adult" sites (maybe they flag sites related to gay rights as "adult").

And their great survey only says that 23.2% of students surveyed ADMIT to looking at porn. People who take surveys are notorious for answering in ways that they think the surveyor wants them to.

GrassHopper:
Not too expensive in U.K.
£13-£15(~$18-$20) per month for unlimited, unmetered usage on
dial-up.

Krik81:(MrAngry)
Sounds like you've spent some long, unrewarding
evenings.
Hope you've got things sorted now. :^)

This should have been "Germans look at more Internet porn than any other country [Obvious]".

Let's face it, whatever you can think of, somewhere there will be someone who has a sexual fetish for it. And he'll be German.

Grasshopper: Fine british ass- why do you think they need porn...

Meta: "Germans look at more Internet porn than any other country [Obvious]."

I think it is either:

"Germans look at more Internet bondage porn than any other country [Obvious]."

"Americans look at more porn PERIOD [Very Obvious]."

Correction: The smelly unbathed Germans look at more scat fetish and fist farking pictures than any other country

I guess my only question is, how do dogs fit in to all of this?
