British Women Look at Porn


British are pervs, too -- and this is news?

Not that this is news to anyone, but the "first major study of online pornography" discovered that one in four British adults -- including women, gasp! -- look at porn.

Porn UK

Some numbers from the Nielsen NetRatings and Independent on Sunday study:

* More than 9 million British men, which is close to 40 percent of the population, used porn websites in 2005

* Women are among the fastest-growing demographic, rising 30 percent (from about 1 million to 1.4 million) in the past 12 months.

* British film censors passed more hardcore porn than 18-rated movies last year. (An 18-rated movie means you have to be 18 to see it in the theater or rent it, but it's not hardcore.)

* Half of British children encounter online porn while searching for "something else."

* Almost 40 percent of couples with problems blame pornography, at least in part, for their issues.

I'm starting to think that the availability of porn is really challenging our ideas about sexuality, gender and relationships. Men are "supposed" to be always ready for sex, motivated by sex, lured into making stupid decisions based on sex, etc -- and yet if that were the case, why can porn be more compelling than sex, for some? Women are supposedly not interested in porn, preferring emotional closeness and sacred bonding and all that, and yet millions of us are checking out porn on our own?

I'm nowhere near a conclusion about the challenges or what might come out of it. It's still something I'm working out in my head. And yet ... I can't help but believe that if sexual imagery replaces sex for some people, something else is going on. It's easier for me (because I'm a woman?) to see how online sexual interaction and relationships could be compelling enough to keep you there, for a few years anyway, rather than in your own troubled relationship. How pictures and videos can do that, I can't relate. But I'm trying. And I'm going to keep thinking about this until I figure out what I mean. LOL
