CNBC is airing a special on Wednesday, July 15, 2009 titled, “Porn – Business of Pleasure.”  Whenever CNBC does one of these specials, they supplement the hype with random quiznodes and facts on their accompanying site and along with that special they are having.

Well CNBC provides us with the Top US States for Online Pornography.  The slideshow (which is safe for work as long as you don’t mind 18 font screaming the word porn at you) comes from the Journal of Economic Perspectives, but since it is a members only site I have not been able to read the whole study.

Beyond the fact that this is my blog, you have to ask yourself why am I talking about this subject?  I am a moderate libertarian which basically means I am a republican for purposes of fiscal responsibility (Think Reagan not W.) but have no interest in my government telling me, within reason, what I can or can not watch.

Well, I thought the fact that 7/8 of the top 10 states for Porn Subscription are the ones likely to bitch and moan about religious conservatism and limit what (legal, i.e. consenting adults) porn I or any other adult can watch.

I know this is beyond personal finance but I would love to hear some thoughts?
