Measuring how many people use porn is difficult to determine because there haven’t been many widespread studies done on it. Plus, there are challenges in doing this kind of research. Some would have a broader definition of porn than others. Some would be tempted to lie and not share what is really going on in their personal lives.

Still, we do have some sense of how much people view porn.

  • After an analysis of 400 million web searches, researchers concluded that about 1 in 8 searches online are for erotic content.
  • Another recent report found that 64% of U.S. men and 20% of U.S. women view pornography at least monthly. The same survey found that 18% of men and 3% of women believe they are addicted to pornography or are unsure if they are.
