The Internet, Porn, Sex and Infidelities

Infidelity is that dirty little thing that many people have in the back of their heads. It is reported that 22% of men and 14% of women have admitted to cheating. of those that admitted they have cheated, it was reported that the younger categories were more likely to cheat. 70% of married women and 54% of married men did not know their spouse was cheating. 17% of divorces in the United States are caused by infidelity. Makes me wonder why do men and women cheat, so I did a little research. Here is what I found floating around the internet. These are not my poll results, so please take up your gripes with the reporting agency not me, I am just sharing the facts here.

  • 1 in 10 respondents admitted to being addicted to sex and the internet according to an online survey of 38,000 internet users by MSNBC.com and Dr. Alvin Cooper
  • Results show that internet users devote 3 hours a week to online sexual exploits with 25% of those polled admitting to losing control of their sexual exploits and causing a problem in their lives (I can admit, this past month has been freakishly crazy with research and I have found myself devoting more then 3 hours a night to internet porn, purely for researching fetishes and boy are there a LOT!)
  • Dr. Bob Lanier of AskBob.com reports 37% of men and 22% of women admitted to having affairs
  • According to DivorceMag, 46% of men polled believe online affairs are adultery (I know one of the 54% and he was kicked to the curb)
  • According to therapist Peggy Vaugn (author of "The Monogamy Myth"). 60% of men and 40% of women will have an affair at some point in their marriage
  • Affairs affect 1 out of every 2.7 couples, according to Janis Abrahms Spring as reported by The Washington Post on March 30, 1999. Ten percent of extramarital affairs last one day, 10 percent last more than one day but less than a month, 50 percent last more than a month but less than a year, but 40 percent last two or more years. Few extramarital affairs last more than four years.
  • A lesser known fact is that those who divorce rarely marry the person with whom they are having the affair. For example, Dr. Jan Halper’s study of successful men (executives, entrepreneurs, professionals) found that very few men who have affairs divorce their wife and marry their lovers. Only 3 percent of the 4,100 successful men surveyed eventually married their lovers.
  • Frank Pittman has found that the divorce rate among those who married their lovers was 75 percent. The reasons for the high divorce rate include: intervention of reality, guilt, expectations, a general distrust of marriage, and a distrust of the affairee.
  • 57% of people have used the internet to flirt (wink sent)
  • 31% of people admitted to taking their online conversations to real life sex (Does my number go up with each encounter or does it stay the same?)
  • 2 out of 3 women and 3 out of 4 men admit they have sexual thoughts about co-workers (yes, I am part of this category dammit, the young ones are cute in my office!)
  • 75% of men and 65% of women admit to having sex with people they work with (now this I have not done but bet your ass when it does I will be writing about it!)

According to Jerry Ropelato of Top Ten Reviews in 2006 (I am skipping over the child pornography part as I am wholeheartedly against anythig involving or even coming anywhere near children!!! Sick fucks!!!):

  • Every second $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography. Every second 28,258 internet users are viewing pornography. In that same second 372 internet users are typing adult search terms into search engines. Every 39 minutes a new pornographic video is being created in the U.S. in 2006 pornography revenues ballooned to $97.06 billion. (Sorry to say but i am not adding to this right now sitting at work with every thing blocked, being PC in the office, and, well, I live in a cube and everyone can see what I am doing! I think this is a good thing, unless sex was my life.)
  • China topped the list with $27 billions, or 28%, of worldwide pornography revenues. China is followed by South Korea (27%), Japan (21%), and the United States (14%) rounding out the largest consumers of pornography. (who knew China was full of porn addicts? And to think their government was trying to ban Google from their country. I wonder why?!)
  • Seems the internet is not the most popular form of pornography in the United States, video rentals accounted for $3.26 billion in revenue and the internet pulled in a whooping $2.84 billion in 2006  (could this be because of all the short videos on most porn sites are just not enough and leaves us wanting more?)
  • In 2006, Elmhurst, Illinois ranked #1 in "Top U.S. Cities Search Requests" for "porn", "xxx", and "sex" (I am starting to think I need to move to Elmhurst when my lease is up!)
  • 40 million U.S. adults regularly visit porn sites. Admitting to accessing porn at work - Men 20%, women 13%; Male vs Female visitors to porn sites - 72% men, 28% women; women struggling with porn addictions - 17% (after the past month you might as well add me to this list!); 1 in 3 people that visit adult websites are women; women are 2 times as likely to favor chat rooms then men (women like to mentally visualize what their cyber friend is doing to them, men like to see the actual acts); 9.4 million women visit adult websites each month; women keeping their cyber activities secret - 70%
  • Top 10 porn producers in the world - USA, Brazil, The Netherlands, Span, Japan, Russia, Germany (I would have figured them higher on the list), United Kingdom, Canada and Australia
  • Top 13 U.S. Erotica Important cities - LA, Las Vegas, New York, Chicago (WOW Chicago, we are #4!), San Francisco, Miami, Seattle, San Diego, Phoenix/Tucson/Scottsdale, Hillsborough, Boulder, Pittsburgh and finishing out the top 13 is Portland! (Please remember all of these numbers are as of 2006)
  • Top countries to ban pornography - Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, Bahrain, Egypt, UAE, Kuwait, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Kenya, India, Cuba, China (the largest consumers is also one that bans it, INTERESTING!)
  • The top countries with the most pornographic websites - U.S. (244.661 million), Germany (10.030 million); United Kingdom (8.506 million), Australia (5.655 million), Japan (2.7 million), The Netherlands (1.883 million), Russia (1.080 million), Poland (1.049 million), and Spain (852,800)
  • In the U.S. alone, hardcore porn went from releasing 1,300 in 1988 to 13,588 in 2005
  • Age does not seem to be a major factor in the users of internet pornography in the U.S., but 35-44 year-old age group seems to be the largest consumers at 26% where as 18-24 year-old group comes in at 14% (I would have thought the younger you were the more time you had to dedicate to porn. I guess once the honeymoon wears off and children are born we all resort back to internet porn as our new Calgon!). The other age groups are 25-34 at 25%, 45-54 at 21% and those 55 and up at 20%.
  • When it comes to income based consumers, those making $75k+ were the largest consumers at 35% followed by $50k-75k at 26%, $35k-50k at 17%, $25k-35k at 10%, $15k-25k at 7% and everything under $15k at 6%

Ok, so according to the little research I did, it is statistically accurate to say that the person reading this article (YOU) are likely to cheat, purchase porn and will more then likely watch it at work. Now you know I do not condone cheating with only 1 exception, an open marriage. If you are single and playing the field, more power to you; if you are married, keep it between the sheets of your own bed with your own spouse or significant other if you want to avoid divorce court! Do I need to discuss Anthony Weiner or John Edwards? I didn't think so.

It is amazing to find out how perverted people really are and how much I love every one of you perverted bastards! *group hug*

Stay delicious Chicago!
