Wilmington area a top US porn consumer: report

0 comments

Metro Wilmington, Del., a button-down corporate center and banking haven, ranks No. 3, after Orlando and Las Vegas, among 100 U.S. metro areas, for an index of the rate of pornography "DVDs purchased, rented, or streamed (AdultDVDEmpire.com); adult entertainment stores per city (StorErotica.net); rate of porn searches (Google Insights); and, for fans of soft-core, percentage of Cinemax-subscribing households (SimplyMap)", writes Men's Health magazine here.

Philadelphia ranks #35, right behind Chicago; New York is down at #76; Washington DC is #80.

What's the pattern? Hard to tell: Orlando and Las Vegas are both tourist centers; Wilmington, not so much. Conservative Charlotte, NC ranks near the top, but so does liberal Minneapolis. Yet Winston-Salem, NC and Fargo, ND (not so far from Minneapolis) rank near the low-porn bottom. A few metros with high African-American populations -- Jackson, Miss.; Newark, NJ; Detroit -- also rank near the bottom of the list. 

Thanks to Wilmington publicist Doug Rainey for flagging the article.
