Way to go Utah!

#1 Yeah!

GeeBee

Hypocrisy and sexual oppression...nah, not in Utah.

Based on

Growing up in Utah this is not a surprise. Not at all.

The top two uses of internet are family history and porn. Satan isn't going to miss out of his share of the pie. Not surprising though, I've been active LDS my whole life and grew up in Utah. I now live in California and would never move back to Utah. I always heard the Church was better outside of Utah, not nearly as many hypocrites and guess what, it's true.

Yeah right

and the earth is getting warmer as well.

I don't know why anyone would be shocked by this. You can't buy porn very easily in this state and it does not abound on the billboards or ad's.

I AM shocked that Provo/Orem doesn't figure higher on there though.

Take that Buttars

Pornography is the biggest threat to America, not gay people committing to each other. Apparently, Utah is proving this true. I hope Buttars is listening.

Well....

at least we counteract the problem by doing a lot of geneology too, on the Internet.......LOL!!

Easy

Anonymous: kind of harsh there--I don't think Cali is angelic either and it's impossible to say what exactly Mormons are doing in each respective state.

I quote:

"Subscriptions are slightly more prevalent in states that have enacted conservative legislation on sexuality"

Food for thought for our conservative political base here in Utah. Rep. Buttars' comments and others like them are alarming.

I guess....

Big Brother is watching so quit doing it Utahns and concentrate on Family History like you are supposed to.......LOL!!

Biased

The findings are skewed to "prove" this pollsters biases: that conservative legislation on sexuality is wrong, that defense of marriage amendments are harmful, and that those who have faith in God are hypocrits. And, based on the first four comments, it's evident that there are a number of people who would like to have somebody "substantiate" their negative views of conservatives/Utahns. It's from Harvard, so of course it's correct, huh?

Its all INHERITED in Utah blood. You can take the polygamy away from the Mormons, but you cannot take the girlie thing out of their minds, for it is deeply embedded into their culture. The Mormon men all have hopeful futures for the hereafter. And a PORN magazine just gets them that more excited.

Workinglate

it must be all the non-Mormons...

Just kidding - better say that before the white powder gets added to my US Mail.

Ha Ha!

Way to go Utah. You people there are female hungry!

Buy porn?

Maybe people in Utah are too dumb figure out how to find free porn.

Either way...

We're #1, we're #1!

Ditto on Canton

Please....you can't pin all of that on hypocritical Mormons. With infinitely fewer adult stores and triple XXX bars in Utah than other states, the internet's practically the only place for people to get that trash.
This study is flawed.

ONLY IN UTAH! and it figures!

Sweet!

Go Utah! When will the high rate of porn users turn into a voting bloc? Some of the High and Mighty laws that Utah has need to go.

Dang....looks like Non-Mormons AND now other Mormons are just waiting for anything so they can jump on Utah members of the Church and brand them as hypocrites. We're all hypocrites at some point people....
People in Utah who want porn pretty much have to use the internet. There's infintely fewer adult stores and strip clubs in Utah, compared to other parts of the country.
This study doesn't mean much to me.

A previous comment said, "I'm shocked that Utah County didn't show up as a higher consumer of porn." I'm not shocked at all. I went to school at BYU and the vast majority of people I studied with were good kids and lived their lives according to their values. Now of course some didn't. But there's a ton of good kids in Provo and people need to give credit where credit is due.
