Porn and gambling dominate UK surfing habits

Lots of ogling and fluttering over the keyboard

More than a third of all UK Internet users visit porn sites – that’s 3.6 million people.

The high levels of demand feed through to site popularity figures, which show that around 40 per cent of the top 6,000 sites feature adult content.

And if we’re not surfing porn sites many Britons have taken to gambling their hard earned cash online.

Around two million British Netizens are visiting gambling Web sites, a figure which is set to double over the next four months.

Latest in depth research from NetValue show that there are now ten million home Net users in the UK – that’s a 15 per cent increase over the past six months.
