Like watching porn? You’re more likely to be bi, says study

Heterosexual people are more likely to watch porn once a week or several times a week, but bi people are more than twice as likely to watch porn several times a day than once a week.

People who watch more porn on a regular basis are more likely to be bisexual, according to a new survey that also noted that LGBTQIA people – in general – are also more likely to watch porn daily.

Porn site xHamster discovered these correlations based on a survey of over 11,000 users who answered questions about their porn watching habits and identity, among others.

Majority (67.7%) of xHamster users identify as heterosexual, with bisexuals the second largest group (22.3%).

Acknowledging that the site has primarily heterosexual content, xHamster noted that watching porn “opens up users to the idea of a more fluid sexuality”.

Overall, the survey found bi people are more likely to watch porn several times a day – i.e. Heterosexual people are more likely to watch porn once a week or several times a week, but bi people are more than twice as likely to watch porn several times a day than once a week.

Note that bi people are in the same league with gay men and lesbians, who watch porn more frequently than their straight peers. While most users (a majority of each group) watch weekly, bi people and gay men and lesbians watch daily more than straight users.

When xHamster isolated the data collated by gender, it found that 38% of women in the survey identified as bisexual, and this may be skewing the data.

But when the data was narrowed down to just bi men, it was found that 10.8% watched once a week and 27.2% watched multiple times a day.

Majority of the respondents also consider porn as a healthy sexual outlet, with bi people the most likely to agree with this (85%).
