Women start watching more pornography after they get married. That's according to one new report anyway.

The viewing habits of women contrast with men who were found to watch less pornography after marriage than before.

In a relatively small study of 100 married couples, 9 per cent of women admitted to watching porn before marriage, compared to 28 per cent after. That contrasted with men - 23 per cent of whom said they watched porn before marriage, compared to just 14 per cent who said they watched it after.

The report, published in the journal Sexologies, concludes:

Higher level of sexual desire has already been correlated with greater pornography use. Men after marriage are more involved in establishing their socioeconomic status in the society. Hence, their priorities may change from sexual fantasies to actual sexual practices with their female partners.

Not only does the amount of porn people watch change over the course of their lifetime, but so does the types of porn.

According to data released last year by Pornhub, one of the world's biggest porn websites, showed that younger users (aged 18-34) were more likely to search for things like "hentai" and specific porn stars than their older (55+) counterparts who were more likely to search for "nude", "soft" and "boobs".
