Facebook Photos: The New Porn?
The most common activity on Facebook is men looking at photos of women.
Men have found a new hobby on the Internet, and it involves looking at photos of women on Facebook instead of the average porn site. Research conducted by Mikolaj Jan Piskorski found that men ogling photos of women is the most common activity happening on Facebook.
The Daily Beast asked a few men why they prefer this “Facebook porn” over the traditional kind. One guy said, “On Facebook you can stare as long as you want to—nobody is going to get mad because it’s not them, it’s just a picture.”
“I think the theory is that the women on Facebook are, if nothing else, real,” says another, “and often people that you might have a real-life attraction to.”
So, guys aren’t just drooling over your sexy profile picture, they’re looking through a number of photos, fantasizing about what it’d be like to be with you.
OK, we understand that – women on Facebook are going to be more genuine than the commercialized porn star, but how far is too far? Well, one 41-year-old confessed just how far his “Facebook porn” habit has gone.
“I can print out, bookmark and/or download the images I see on Facebook to look at again and again and again,” he says.
Ah, creepy! Think about that the next time you upload photos from your girl’s night out. (The Daily Beast)
