Quest for men who haven’t seen porn

Slashdot Science reports:

Scientists at the University of Montreal would love to compare the views of men in their 20s who had never been exposed to pornography with regular porn watchers. The problem is, they can’t find a man in that age category who has never seen it. “We started our research seeking men in their 20s who had never consumed pornography,” said Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse. “We couldn’t find any.

This is interesting on a number of levels.  First of all, it is, of course, hilarious.

Secondly, if seen as a puzzle or quest, I’d say they should look for men like this in places with the lowest rates of Internet connectivity.  Internet does not equal porn, but it makes it so much simpler to find and watch it.  Pre-Internet porn is harder to distribute, requiring some sort of copying device.

Thirdly, this makes me think back to the argument I had some time ago about who watches the most porn – men or women.  While I am not saying that women don’t watch porn, I think men watch incomparably more of it.

Fourthly, this gives me a reason to use both “porn” and “research” tags on the same post.

Fifth, I worry what contextual ad will pop up in Google AdSense.

    Your website brought tears to my eyes. Visit to see why.

    Reminds me of some fellow called UG answering to there are a lot of people who think that, because tension is released and you feel more relaxed, it is good for health

    UG: You first create a tension. All this fantasy, all this romantic nonsense, is building up tension. When once the tension is built, it has to dissolve itself. That is why rest becomes essential, and you go to sleep. You fall asleep because you are tired and exhausted. …. The aftereffects are bound to follow. That’s fine, but it’s wearing you out in the long run.


  2. Be careful. Let me tell you a small story.

    Some time ago, I wrote an article about one of the most popular porn websites. I write regular about cypriot pages and noticed that this page was on the top ten of Alex for Cyprus. So I just wanted to write a funny post!

    After thousand hits I noticed that Google dropped my PR to 0. Maybe a coincidence, maybe not. So just to be safe I added this line to robots.txt:
    Disallow: /kypriakes_istoselides_youporn/

    After some days, my PR was back. Bottom line, posts about porn can attract thousands of visitors but might cost your PR :)


  3. Chrys,

    thanks for the warning.

    I don’t worry about PR all that much – my blog is mostly for myself and people who know me. And, on the other hand, I think that archives for almost 10 years of blogging are enough to prove to anyone, not just Google bot, that this blog is legit. :)
