Tomorrow is election day in the United States, a day of collective fear no matter which side of the political corridor you are on. For decades this nation has been striving for political reckoning, and it’s finally up to us.

We can find some consolation in the early voting numbers as it looks like this time this country is more eager and ready to vote. For a more precise segmentation of this engagement, we turn to the porn site xHamster and its internal survey of porn viewers.

Because this is America and it wouldn’t be a proper election week without a porn site playing along.

Porn voters are very involved in politics. That is the title of xHamsters report (SFW-Link) and it is secured by some data. Last weekend, xHamster surveyed over 6,000 of its users, all of whom are US residents and have the right to vote. 88% of them said they voted or were voting on election day. xHamster recently looked at the correlation between porn and politics, revealing favorite porn of all spectrums of political leaning. It’s a little less complex.

What it shows is what we see. Non-voters were a huge problem in 2016 and helped land us where we are now. This year we’ve seen that over 20% of early votes come from people who didn’t vote in 2016. It’s huge. Regardless of who you vote for, you should always vote. It is not only your right but your responsibility as well. If you choose to do this because you are being pressured by a porn site, so be it.

24% of the visitors surveyed on xHamster defined themselves as conservative, 25% as liberal or progressive. The rest fell somewhere in between. Of the Conservative and Liberal voters, both groups overwhelmingly said they were planning to vote, reaching 95.8% and 95.2%, respectively. In addition to voting, users were also asked which porn categories are their favorites. The big winner here was the MILF, who scored 32.9% with the right, 25.7% with the centrists, and 23.2% with the left.

There’s also a breakdown of who specific categories of porn fans are and whether they want to vote. It’s all good news. No matter what type of porn is their favorite, they still plan on voting in large numbers. It just goes to show that porn viewers are an engaged constituency regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum.

What does all this tell us? It tells us that there is a surge of nervousness in this country about what will come next. Porn isn’t a concern due to its user base, but there are so many related social issues (sex workers’ rights, for example) that it should be a cause for concern as an industry. Regardless of what the data reveals on the ground, there is at least one political party that does not publicly support what it does itself behind closed doors.

xHamster will invite candidates to appear on xHamsterLive today and tomorrow to target these porn-centric viewers. It is currently unknown whether politicians accepted this offer.
