Watching More Porn Makes You More Likely to Be Bisexual1 min read

Watching porn might turn you bisexual. That’s one of the glaring takeaways in a study released by the online porn portal xHamster. In the xHamster “Report on Digital Sexuality,” a survey of 11,000 users finds that the more porn you watch, the likelier you are to go both ways.

According to the study, a whopping 22.36 percent of US porn users are bisexual, while only 4.05 percent categorize themselves as gay or lesbian. Not surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of porn consumers, 67.77 percent, are heterosexual.

The heat gets turned up when the study looks at whether “porn makes you bi.” Researchers at xHamster find that 13.09 percent of people who watch porn once a week are bisexual. Those who watch XXX vids a few times a week have a 19.73 percent chance of being bi. If you watch once a day and you are in the 23.01 percent group of bisexuals. And if you Make the time to log on for skin flicks several times a day and you can probably count yourself among the 27.46 percent of xHamster’s frequent viewers who are bisexual.

“We can only provide correlation, not prove causation, but it would seem that watching porn more frequently helps show users what sexuality can be,” xHamster vice president Alex Hawkins told The Post. “The more porn you watch, the more you may think, ‘Hey, that’s actually somewhat of a turn-on. Maybe I’m not as totally straight, or gay, as I thought.’”

If there’s a shocker to come from the study for Hawkins, it’s that bisexuality is a lot more common than even he thought. “Just like in real life, where you can’t always judge who’s bisexual based on who they are dating,” says Hawkins, “we underestimate the size of the community.”
