They are also the gayest.
 
2013-05-23 06:52:39 PM  
So can any Farkers from those cities tell me which sites host the best porn, in your experience?

Godscrack: As well as the most racist.
And the highest percentage of obesity.
Worst in education.
And the most homophobic.


At least these people realize they need help.  That's more than you can say for the self-deluded "enlightened" types who frown on them.

Duh. Both porn stars and churchies want no condoms.

Bigotry is wrong.

Even when you're bigoted against southern white people.

/or is this kind of bigotry OK on Fark?

The southern white people I'm related to earned every bit of bigotry I give them.

Not really surprising. Most people who use websites to watch porn don't want to download porn onto their computers because someone else might find it. But they don't come close to the guy with reams of porn saved to hard drive.

FlashHarry: every time i drive through the south, i'm amused by the billboards. for every one that advertises a church or an anti-abortion message, there'll be one that advertises a trucker "spa" with "oriental massage."


Pisses me off to no damn end to see those anti-abortion signs on I-70 in N FLA. If they spent that same money supporting some unwanted crotch fruit instead of those advertisements, I'd have more respect. There may be thousands of them, and to think of the cost of those ranting, guilt laden, horrific messages rather than actually doing something with the money that would be (IMHO) *worthwhile*.

This is the impression I have of their signs: "rant rant rant don't scrape your womb. You're going to Hell. Oh Noes rant rant baby killer" Then to see them every 10th of a mile for 100 miles is just too much.

If I had a womb, I get an abortion to spite them.

I'm wondering if watching porn in these areas is the only way some people are able to get any "kink" in their lives.  Is it possible that couples in these areas are less adventurous in the bedroom then other parts of the country?   After 30 years of only getting missionary position with the lights off, wouldn't you be inclined to see what else is out there?
 
2013-05-23 07:24:05 PM  
Same reason why unsurprisingly the five year trend in decreased teen pregnancy rates skipped the Bible Belt; denial doesn't work.
 
2013-05-23 07:24:53 PM  

This text is now purple: You didn't actually read the article, did you subby?

The list was most pron watching in a subset of cities classified as 'very religious'.


Yup.

You're pretty much the only one in this thread and TFA (and also the original article TFA linked to) who didn't just flunk Research Methods.

Some of us were smart enough to think of this BEFORE.

Back when I was touring with bands and stuff we played in Salt Lake City a few times.

BIG STREETS, NOBODY ON THEM

LOTS OF PORN ON THE HOTEL TV

CRAZY ALCOHOLICS WHO NEVER SUCCESSFULLY GOT DRUNK

Those are the things I noticed most.
 
2013-05-23 07:33:35 PM  
Huntsville, AL has 6,000 computers at NASA dedicated to porn. Do you really think that branch of NASA actually does anything. No wonder that city is #1.

Comment #69.

Woot!
 
2013-05-23 07:41:29 PM  
Now that I got that out of the way...


I hope this will be used as evidence at some future trial to challenge the ridiculous community standards argument being used to keep pron production illegal in almost every state. The industry really needs to get out of California and into everywhere USA.

Nah, think about it in terms of communities. Although I wouldn't argue your point is invalid, there is the whole blue law thing in some parts of the country that include not selling booze, porn, having titty dancers wear pasties and so forth, that may also contribute to ordinary horny people using the internet to get a good wank in now and then. Yeah, they are probably so much more flawed than you or I, so we can feel studly and enlightened.
 
2013-05-23 07:43:06 PM  
Lots of commets about seeing lots of signs for "adult superstores" in VA, TN, and SC, but AL is where you can't go 20 miles without seeing a sign for one.
 
2013-05-23 07:54:48 PM  
I don't see who this proves that more people watch porn in religious cities. In my experience religious people are generally less tech savvy, so it makes sense that they would all just go to Porn Hub while more tech-knowledgeable people visit sites that don't suck so badly (pun intended).

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: meow said the dog: LAUGHTER OL SUBMITTER AND OTHERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THE METHODS OF THIS HAS THE WORKING LAUGHTER OL.

The cities in the list of this are only those which are the religious areas then doing the ranking. It is not making the suggestion of these areas being the tops overall but do not let this lack of the understanding keep you from making the criticisms you individuals with the statistical retardations.

Actually, Utah watches more porn per capita than any other state and is one of the most religious.


There was a story I recall reading some years ago, quite likely on Fark. In the state of Utah a shopkeeper was charged with obscenity for renting or selling porn videos. I forget which, maybe both.

The defence had the court order the local cable TV company to turn over their video on demand sales records for the local area and used it to argue that as it clearly showed that many people in that community regularly order porn videos, the ones sold or rented did not violate local standards. The shopkeeper was acquitted.

This is probably less about hypocrisy than it is just that us heathens know how to use BitTorrent.

It would make sense if the local culture didn't support other venues.

Hagbardr: ISO15693: Fark is becoming synonymous with porn-related articles.

I think it might be time to leave.

I remember when there were boobies links on the main page.


No kidding.

Also if you're coming to FARK for your wholesome family entertainment....well, you're doing it wrong

The Irresponsible Captain: And, apparently  they like gay porn in those areas.

I'm kind of disappointed 'group' isn't on that list. Also I goddamn HATE POV porn. Yes please make it look like an abstract artwork (or mashup of things-I-don't-want-identified).

illannoyin: I hope this will be used as evidence at some future trial to challenge the ridiculous community standards argument being used to keep pron production illegal in almost every state. The industry really needs to get out of California and into everywhere USA.


Hell yes. I might actually be able to make some money if I could legally produce [as the camera operator] and sell that.

And they'd rather live with all of that, because the alternative is living with people like you.
