Newly released research on porn consumption amongst Icelanders aged 18 to 30 has revealed some interesting results, and it appears that, statistically speaking, every single man in Iceland in this age bracket has watched porn.

Vísir reports that the research was conducted by Guðbjörg Hildur Kolbeins, a doctor of mass communications. Amongst the results to come out is that 99% of men and 87.4% of women have watched porn at least once. Men started watching porn at nearly 12 years of age, on average, and 32.4% of Icelandic men consume porn daily, compared to just 3.9% of women.

About half of both men and women reportedly sent naked photos of themselves to others, but women were twice as likely to end up in a situation where those photos were sent to others without their consent.

In terms of what kind of porn Icelanders in this age bracket enjoy, most enjoyed watching porn involving at least two women, threesomes, and oral sex. Men were, though, far more likely than women to watch porn involving anal sex. Men were also more likely to watch porn privately, while women were more likely to watch it with their partners, spouses or friends.

Consumption of porn depicting BDSM was small, at about 6%, but in generally equal proportions between men and women.
