According to a new report from internet monitoring company NetValue, porn web sites were visited by 3.8 million home internet users in the UK in June 2001. This accounts for more than a quarter of the entire UK home internet population.30 Nov 2000

The report reveals that in June, the average UK visitor to adult web sites spent more than 45 minutes on these sites in June. Porn sites make up 41.2% of all the sites visited in the UK with a significant audience. Students (23.2%), manual workers (15%), and professionals (12.8%) are the largest groups of UK visitors to pornographic sites.

However, Germany has the largest audience for on-line pornography in Europe with more than 5.3 million Germans visiting an adult site in June. They also spent more time on these type of sites than any other nationality - each German visitor spent almost an hour on pornographic sites in June. NetValue data also showed that more than half (52.3%) the web sites visited in June by a significant number of German users were of an adult nature.
