That's what I think too BUT my husband thinks its the Men thing to look on erotic stuff in every possible way which all the men does so that's why I wanted to know from the other people.
Some will look at pictures, others will seek out the real thing on Langstrasse. Others again get all they need at home.

How long is a piece of string?

Well, If you have read my post carefully I said erotic stuff (nude, soft porn etc..) from all the media sources everyday which includes everything.
I haven't seen any soft porn or any photographs of naked people for several months now, and I don't exactly live in a cave.

What sort of pictures are you talking about, exactly, and where is your husband looking at them?

One of the main reasons the internet developed into what it is today is largely because of Pornography.
Not even largely, porn is a huge driver of technology. Betamax, a better technology, lost out to VHS because more pornos were on VHS. I remember doing a traffic analysis of internet traffic back in the early 90s of everything going through MAE East and it was rather amusing and sad to note that the vast majority of it was porn or porn related. It's probably lower these days with more women online and much more content but...it's still a pretty large percentage most likely.

I don't know about overall traffic (its difficult to define a meaningful metric anyway) but porn companies were definitely the first to actually make any significant money on the Internet and many non porn companies invested big money in analysing and attempting to emulate their business model.

BTW: Women are a non-negligible part of the porn market.

Yes, they were also the first to engage in online commerce with credit cards, etc. I used to work with a guy who ran all of the systems for Playboy....he had lots of interesting stories. Metrics, particularly if you're sitting on top of MAE East, are possible as you can look into the packets for various bits that would indicate porn or porn-related, but these days it's a pretty tough job due to volume and the wide array of media. I seem to remember, too, that there was a study done a while back that indicated the time of day more likely to be porn-related that was sorta interesting as it wasn't completely was you'd expect. I keep waiting for porn to revolutionize storage away from spinning platters and bring in the future star trek promised us so long ago...

I am just curious how many married men (w/wo kids) watches erotic stuff everyday from newspapers/videos/internet surfing/etc? Is media influencing too much our lives or men usually search these things doesn't matter single/ married or its the personal choices ?
The problem with the Cablecom channel order in my location, is that Blue Hustler and Adult Channel are just a flick and two lower than BBC HD (and all the other BBBC and English channels).

If I accidentally go down (-) instead of up (+), I cop an eyeful (post 11 pm) ..... so to speak.

Blue hustler seems fixated with ethnic teens at car washes, and Adult channel with tattooed, pierced everywhere milf-type slappers .........................



............................................... apparently.

Really?

I always thought it was the cutting-edge quality of contributions from the Local.
