The U.S. Has More Internet Porn Than Any Other Country

By Leslie Horn on at

America: land of the free, home of the most internet porn in the universe. According to a study, the U.S. of A hosts 60 per cent — or 428 million pages — of the world's porn.

The data was collected by Paul Walsh of a company called MetaCert. He found that the U.S. is second only to the Netherlands, which has 187 million pages for a population of 17 million porn-hungry people. The U.K. came in a measly third with 52 million naughty pages, or just under one for every person. Germany was fourth with 8 million pages.

Apparently Holland took the second overall-porn place because, hello! It's Holland, it's sexually liberal, and many of the web hosting companies are located there, and not regulated much at all, meaning they can make loads of cash. The Netherlands is also home to AMSIX, or the Amsterdam Internet Exchange, which is the world's biggest data transport, handling 10 per cent of the planet's online traffic. [IBTimes via BetaBeat]
