City rankings show Fargo views little porn, while Minneapolis looks at lotsFARGO – Compared to other cities, Fargo doesn’t watch much porn and Minneapolis watches a lot of it, according to the results of a survey by Men’s Health magazine.
Fargo came in at No. 92 on the magazine’s list of 100 cities most likely to look at porn, which was topped by Orlando, Fla.
Survey results were determined by tabulating the number of DVDs purchased, rented or streamed; the number of adult entertainment stores per city; the rate of Internet porn searches; and the percentage of Cinemax-subscribing households (“for fans of soft-core,” the magazine said in a news release).
Not only did Orlando win the title of “Most Likely to Look,” but Florida was ranked the state that consumes the most porn, the magazine said. Tampa, Fla., was ranked No. 8 on the list.
Also in the top 10 were Las Vegas at No. 2, followed by Wilmington, Del.; Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C.; Minneapolis; Atlanta; Tampa; Anchorage, Ala.; and Austin, Texas.
Rounding out the bottom 10 were Norfolk, Va.; Fargo; Lincoln, Neb.; Toledo, Ohio; Laredo and Lubbock, Texas; Charleston, W.Va.; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Baton Rouge, La.; and Jackson, Miss.
