Groundbreaking study finds that despite government crackdown, porn remains popular in China.

Porn is illegal in China, and in fact, it’s so illegal that the government offers a reward of $120,000—about 12 times the average annual wage of a Chinese worker—for informing on porn producers. But none of that has stopped people in China from seeking out and viewing porn anyway, as a groundbreaking new study of Chinese porn habits reveals.

The study was conducted by Yummy, China’s most popular site for women’s sexuality, and found that China’s upswing in porn viewing is driven largely by young city dwellers in the world’s most populous country, a group in which 70 percent of men and half of all women say that they watch porn at least once per week.

“We already know that Chinese people do watch porn,” Yummy founder Zhao Jing told the China news and culture site SupChina. “However, we don’t know much about what exactly they like to watch and how it influences them.” 

What the study found, according to Zhao, is that “porn has value.” In fact, it appears that Chinese millennials are turning to porn for answers to their questions about human sexuality. That may be why, the study found, Chinese porn preferences differ in some significant ways from what porn consumers want to watch in Western countries.
