For an industry that’s asking for a $5 billion bailout, porn is getting a surprising amount of “coverage” these days – especially in “conservative states.”
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives, porn is making a killing all across America’s geographic spectrum, although it appears there are more subscribers in “goody-two-shoes” states. From The New Scientist:

Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year’s presidential election â€“ Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama … Residents of 27 states that passed laws banning gay marriages boasted 11% more porn subscribers than states that don’t explicitly restrict gay marriage. The study was conducted by a Harvard professor examining the anonymous credit card zip codes of thousands of porn customers over a period of two years. America’s most porn-hungry state?
