Hypocrisy is a strong word to use. But when the stats support the claims, it becomes hard to debate. Though talking about ‘sex’ (even with respect to education) is a taboo in the country, the public outrage over the recent short-lived porn ban by the government was widespread.

If you thought of dismissing that reaction as just a natural outburst towards government’s highhandedness, the latest annual report published by Pornhub can dash your perceptions. According to the report, India stood at the third rank on the global list of porn consumption in 2015, with the top two spots being bagged by the US and the UK.

Another perception that the report breaks is about women not watching porn. According to the report, 30% of Indian porn viewers are women. This number stood at 24% last year. It is significantly higher than the global average of 24%.
