Let’s be honest, we all feel a lot more relaxed after a, well, you know what I mean. Afterwards, we’re a lot less likely to go out and commit a violent crime, am I right?. Science, that.

Yup, that’s right. A rise in internet porn has coincided with a fall in violent crime.

Graphs are weird. I haven’t really looked at many since leaving school, to be honest. Obviously they don’t represent individual cases, so if you have been a victim of a violent crime, you may not look at it in a positive light, but overall, this does show a big decrease.

There are no figures for how much porn has been watched online, but there is for internet usage… And let’s be honest, we all know how most time is spent online… Right?

As you can see, over the last 20 years, there’s been a huge drop in violent crime, with a huge rise in internet use, so much so that people have speculated a link between the two.

I personally don’t believe there is a link between a persons choice of entertainment, and then going out and committing crime. I play GTA loads, and I’m a pillar in the community. Honestly. But I can however say that after a good session on the ol’d Pornhub, I really couldn’t be arsed kicking off, even if I wanted to. Hypothetically, of course.

I’d never do either.
