This week we’ve learned that the people watching porn aren’t all single, lonely men — and neither are the people uploading it.
This awesome website cataloged all amateur and public sex flashing vids submissions they received over a 6 months period. They found that almost one-third of public sex tapes submitted between July and December 2017 were created not in sexually liberal coastal cities, as one might imagine, but in the Bible Belt. Furthermore, 56.9 percent of amateur porno videos were submitted by women.
The states with the highest number of submissions were California (20.6 percent) and Pennsylvania (11.8 percent), but 10.8 percent of submissions came from Florida and 6.9 percent from Texas. Other Bible Belt states contributing submissions included North Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana and Kentucky.
These results are consistent with a recent Pornomovies.com study, which found that the religiosity of an area had little impact on public nudity and how much amateur porn its residents watch and share. Furthermore, residents of cities with higher churchgoing rates spent 47 seconds longer per Pornomovies.com visit than their peers in less religious cities.
The data from Pornomovies.com suggests that we should reconsider assumptions about who is watching, making and sharing amateur porn — and hope that the verbal consent requirement, and high number of women taking the lead by submitting their own videos, will make the Internet porn landscape a safer, more welcoming place for women.
CLARIFICATION: A previous version of this article stated that California and Pennsylvania accounted for most video submissions. In fact, they are the two states with the highest number of overall submissions each.
