Spanking the bishop to porn might have a side effect that you wouldn’t expect – finding religion.

A new study has found that watching pornography more than once a week can lead to increased religious feelings, reports The Independent.

Researchers believe this could be due to guilt over adult video consumption leading people to pray more.

They also theorised compulsive behaviour towards both religion and pornography might be a factor for some people.

Dr Samuel Perry followed 1,300 Americans over a six years to investigate the relationship between pornography and faith:

Those who used pornography at the highest frequencies seemed to be more religious in terms of prayer frequency and worship attendance than those who used pornography at more moderate levels.

The size and duration of the study, published in the Journal of Sex Research, lends credence to the surprising claim.

Conversely viewing pornography less than once a week actually seemed to make people less religious over time, causing a reduction in how often people prayed or attended a religious institution.

However, bad news if you think porn could be a shortcut to a closer relationship with god, the paper also reported that people who never watched porn were the most pious and had the fewest doubts about their faith.

Damn.
