Liberals love porn: How often have you heard the claim that conservatives are huge hypocrites because they are all pious in public, but are the real perverts behind closed doors? Typical liberal maliciousness. In the past year, 42% of really liberal guys admitted to watching porn, compared to 24% of really conservative guys (General Social Survey). All you Catherine MacKinnon feminists better think twice before going on a date with a guy like Dennis Kucinich--chances are you're just a piece of tail to him.

Do you think there's a possibility that liberals are less shameless than conservatives when it comes to their porn use, and therefore more readily admit to it in a survey? I've seen some market data about porn pay per view in a number of red and blue states - trust me when I say there's an enormous amount of porn consumed in red states. Of course I have no idea the political views of the people buying it, but the numbers were large enough that I have a hard time believing that only 24% of conservatives watch it.

I probably don't have to tell you some of the foibles of self-reported data. I guess I'm just skeptical of the stat.

I have been both a conservative and a liberal, and I'm not sure politics would change much my willingness to admit to this because it basically amounts to admitting that you masturbate. In my mind, that is embarassing, regardless of political values. But like you, I do suspect there is overall underreporting because the porn industry is HUGE--bigger than Hollywood by some estimates.
