      Percentage difference of a percentages seems a bit dodgy statistically, particularly when you’re looking at differences less than 0.3%.

      This data is far more interesting because actually it inadvertently potentially supports the generally held idea that roughly 5% of the population are gay. Perhaps more depending on exactly what these percentages refer to (e.g. are they % of all porn searches? or % of porn searches for gay male porn only? or % of porn searches for gay AND/OR lesbian porn? etc.).

      Goodness knows I’m doing my part to boost the numbers in Mississippi. Not much of anything else to do here.

      @Malcontent: “This data is far more interesting because actually it inadvertently potentially supports the generally held idea that roughly 5% of the population are gay. ”

      Yes, interesting. It may indeed be a better metric. Although I can see potential glitches in the data. Personally I never watch gay porn, and at any one time a sigificant percentage of gay guys might be adequately satiated by str8 porn; likewise bi and bicurious guys are even more precisely catered to on that side of the fence. Moreover, is the kind of psychologically conflicted type who is unable to admit even to himself he’s gay much less cop to it in an anonymous survey, just as likely to refrain from clicking the “gay” option on sites like pornhub which are strictly segregated (excepting the ubiquitous “tr@nny”/ “shem@le” porn)? Also, not being au fait with the gay porn myself I dunno is pornhub the gayporn officianado’s first choice? I have no idea. I’m an Xhamster kinda guy.

      @ridgelineranger: Hahaha!

      You know I would’ve thought California would be at least #2, considering the size, population, and pretty much all porn is produced here.

      Busted! I’m guilty of some of that % in MS, which has a very high rate of redneck homophobia, denial, and closet-ism. Except for the Gulf Coast region and some college towns, it is a gaysex wasteland! We can’t simply amble down to the corner gay-bar for a pickup.

      Okay, it’s driving me crazy and not relevant, but: what’s the picture in the article from? A Sean Cody video?

      I have pretty much “single handedly” upped California’s average a couple of % points.

      Scientists at several universities have tested homophobic attractions to the same sex as being stronger than LGBT. One of the tests was performed by using hypnosis to determine which one was more aroused by the same sex and it was a homophobic. So it does not surprise me that more of the so-called religious fanatics, rednecks, some Republicans, are secretly visiting porn sites than are the LGBTs. :>)

      The two hot guys featured in the photo are featured in an on-line video at Sean Cody called Sheridan & Jarek: Bareback.

      The Southern States mentioned with high gay porn users, are also States that have a high population of blacks. Most blacks are closet gays (amongst other animalistic behaviors).
