YOU would think being conservative would prevent people from watching pornography online. But it might just be the exact reason people in the Eastern Cape watch more porn than any other province in South Africa.

Pornhub.com, one of the world’s largest porn sites, recently released the results of a survey that showed people from the Eastern Cape spent on average 10 minutes and 39 seconds on the site every time they visited it. This is about 90 seconds more than the international average.

And it is this conservative approach that might contribute to this figure.”
