2. First thing on Sunday mornings
Besides sleeping, shopping and meeting friends, Sunday has one more important utility -- watching pornographic movies. According to a site, morning of the last day of the week is the most popular time in Britain for visiting 'naughty' sites. 

Analysis of viewing figures shows peak demand for "naughty movies" was around 1116 GMT on Sunday.

3. Pornographic actresses 'are healthier'
A new American study has claimed that female porn stars are psychologically as healthy or healthier than other women, challenging widely held views about women in the adult entertainment business

The study, undertaken by researchers at Shippensburg University, Texas Woman’s University and the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, found that adult entertainers have higher self-esteem, a better quality of life and body image, and are more positive, with greater levels of spirituality.

4. People start watching porn very young
A study by Indian-origin psychologists Raj Sitharthan and his wife Gomathi Sitharthan, of Sydney University's Department of Medicine has found that the starting age of people viewing pornography on internet was between 11 to 13 years.

According to the experts, many young people reported a positive experience watching pornography, while there were many others suffering detrimental effects. "They actually skip education and also we have found they have social skills deficits where they have difficulty speaking to members of the opposite sex," Raj said.

5. It's a blessing for men
It's probably the best news men will ever hear, for they need no excuse to watch porn ever again - experts have claimed that watching X-rated movies might help cure premature ejaculation.

Dr Yang Zhi Jian from a men’s health clinic in Singapore said watching porn films could even help patients improve their sex lives by learning new skills.

Another sex expert, Dr Yu Wei Siang, said the method could stimulate the production of male hormones.

6. Viewership increases during winter, early summer
An American study has found that people are most likely to search online for pornography in winter or early summer, suggesting that sex and mating behaviours are seasonal.

Researchers at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, led by Dr Patrick Markey, found keyword searches over the past five years relating to dirty images and movies had clear peaks and troughs, recurring at six-month cycles.

7. Millions watch porn while at work
Around 60 million people log on to the world’s largest free porn website every day - and two thirds of those are doing so from their desks, according to German sex therapist Dr Christoph Ahlers.

“Modern viewing of porn is no longer something in which strange individuals are engaged in in quiet rooms in video booths,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

“Sixty million views, of which two thirds are people sitting at their computer at work, is a powerful indicator of what is happening,” he said.

8. Naughty hotel ritual
According to a recent research, male hotel guests watch adult TV channels as soon as they arrive in their room while women check out the shampoo and conditioner on offer, the Daily Mail reported.

While 19 percent of men are quick to flick on porn shows, the nation’s females weren’t totally squeaky clean with 15 percent also admitting they like to find out what adult TV channels are on offer. 

9. Oz porn addicts watch sex videos 5 hours per day!
Tens of thousands of Australians spend up to five hours a day watching porn - that's almost as many hours as most 9 to 5 workers put in, a survey has revealed.

According to Dr Phil Watts, a porn researcher and psychologist, the addiction is having a crippling affect on personal lives and relationships.

“Sixteen-year-olds watch explicit 20 minute videos ... and view it as normal. Then they get a girlfriend at 17 and she’s freaking out about [what they want them to do],” he said.

For addicts, porn often serves as an escape from stress and day-to-day problems. But in reality it just adds to their issues, Dr Watts said.

10. Pumping more iron
Male weightlifters can lift heavier objects after watching erotic videos, a study has found. 

Scientists showed different types of video clips to male athletes and then studied their workout performances, a major newspaper reported.

The experts found changes in salivary testosterone samples and subsequent squat performance, after the weightlifters watched the pornographic clips, according to a magazine.
