India was once known as a spiritual country and today it is one of the highest porn watching countries

The geographical entity known as India or more correctly Bharatvarsha is known from very ancient times, as the land of seers, sages, saints and hermits. This is the place where persons from different parts of the world are drawn to learn spiritualism, yoga, meditation and other esoteric practices. But the situation may not remain so for long. Another generation and it could be quite a different place, different from the one we knew and grew up with. This is the picture that emerges if one is to go by the data that were published last year in Quartz’s India: the secret behind India’s passion for Porn.

The data showed that in 2014, India was among the highest consumers of pornographic content in the world with US in the lead followed, in descending order, by UK, Canada and India. Australia is in the 8th place and Mexico’s position is at number 10. Much of this consumption comes through mobile phones and the desktops with the former showing an increasing trend in their uses. While in 2013, 60% of traffic originated from Desktop and 40% from Mobile, in 2014, 45% is from Desktop and 55% from mobile. Thus India’s primary devices for accessing pornographic site/s are the smart phones.

It is quite revealing to know that Indian women are prolific consumers of pornographic content. ‘If men can do, why can not we’, say some women. In 2014, 25% of Indian visitors to the web site Pornhub.com were women. This is higher than the world average of 23% and also higher than a number of European countries considered liberal. Among the female viewers of porn, Brazil is in the lead at 29% and UK at the end. France is at 21% and Spain at 22% is very close to the world average.

Monday is the most popular day to watch porn in US, Canada, and France; Friday the least popular in US, UK, Canada, and Mexico. In UK and Germany, Sunday is the most popular; in India it is Saturday; Tuesday in Italy and Brazil. In Australia the P-Day is the Friday.

 

The information contained in the above report is no doubt educative, but it is incomplete in very important ways. Percentages are fine, but absolute numbers are equally important and so also the percentages to total population and the age group. In India, man-woman relationships outside the family constitute only a tiny fraction of the huge total populace even to-day. This may not be the situation in all the countries of Europe, the Americas and elsewhere.
