What Frisky Americans Viewed Online in 2012 (New Report!)

While Fifty Shades of Grey fever and Octomom's video buzzed around the headlines of yesteryear, it proved that pornography and erotica had tightened its grip around the American public. The research team at Pornhub.com, the premier destination for online adult entertainment, has the numbers to prove it.

The following statistics show off some impressive growth in the viewing habits of the country's largest states and most highly trafficked days.

According to the sites numerical data, it looks like the District of Columbia came in first for per capita viewing, clocking in almost double the amount of videos viewed per person throughout the year than the second place finisher, Hawaii. I suppose this shows just how politicians might be spending their off-time. Perhaps running an entire country does warrant some stress relief come day's end. Check out the rest of the numbers below:

On the opposite side of the coin, the site listed its least trafficked days as follows:
