Dirty Girls

Posted on: June 19, 2009

Thanks to a commenter on my earlier post who suggested some useful links on the subject of women and pornography.

He’s compiled some better statistics.

In August 2003, an estimated 34 million people visited adult entertainment sites—about 25% of Internet users in the U.S. In September 2003, more than 32 million unique individuals visited a porn site. Nearly 22.8 million of them were male (71%), while 9.4 million adult site visitors were female.

….

In August 2006, a survey reported 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography. 60% of the women who answered the survey admitted to having significant struggles with lust; 40% admitted to being involved in sexual sin in the past year.

In 2003, Today’s Christian Woman reported:
• 34% of female readers of Today’s Christian Woman’s online newsletter admitted to intentionally accessing Internet porn.
• According to a Zogby International survey, 17% of the female population are regular users of pornography

More here on women and internet porn.

Dirty Girls is a website about this taboo subject which has a page of heartbreaking confessions from women about their relationship with porn. The owner of the website is writing a book to help churches address this issue. She’s also spoken about the subject here.
