Experts: Web Searches for Sex Declining

Wed Oct 27,10:54 AM ET Technology - AP


By JOE MANDAK, Associated Press Writer

PITTSBURGH - Internet users are doing far fewer searches for sex and pornography and more for e-commerce and business than they were seven years ago, University of Pittsburgh and Penn State researchers say in a new book.

"Twenty percent of all searching was sex-related back in 1997, now it's about 5 percent," said Amanda Spink, the University of Pittsburgh professor who co-authored "Web Search: Public Searching of the Web" with Penn State professor Bernard J. Jansen.

"It's a little bit more in Europe, 8-10 percent, but in comparison to everything else, it's a very small percent," Spink said. "People are using (the Web) more as an everyday tool rather than as just an entertainment medium."

Re: Slackers.....

I bet its just gotten to the point where you don't have to actually search, I bet if I typed in www.juicytits.com I'd get porn. hell you can just go to porn.com

edit: nope didn't work but it came up with " juicytits.com
What you need, when you need it" and some credit report stuff

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
