What is the Internet for? It’s certainly not for education or the betterment of humankind. No… No, the Internet is for porn, and the sooner we admit this to ourselves, the better. New stats show that, yeah, people don’t like Internet porn, they love it! One great stat to get us started: 25 percent of all searches are porn-related. One out of every four times someone goes to Google they’re looking for naughty bits. Nice.

The stats are simply hilarious, but totally expected.

• 12 percent of all sites online are porn

• 40 million Americans regularly visit porn sites

• 35 percent of all downloads are porn

• Utah is the number one U.S. state for porn downloads

• Kids first see porn online, on average, at age 11

• 20 percent of men watch porn at work

This probably isn’t breaking news in the traditional sense, but it’s nice to have some numbers to back up that famous song.
