Britain is an e-nation of porn addicts and gamblers, according to the latest research from wired watchers, NetValue.

More than a third of all Netizens in Britain - some 3.6 million people - visit adult Web sites and 40 per cent of the top 6,000 sites are X-rated.

No real surprises there, but then again, who would wager against the notion that online gambling will soon become e-Britain's favourite pastime?

For two million Net users in Britain are now visiting gambling Web sites - and the number is doubling every four months.

Elsewhere, the research showed there are ten million home Net users in Britain - an increase of 15 per cent over the previous six months.

What's more, they're spending even more time on online - up from nine minutes a day in December 1999 to 12 minutes a day in May.

Put these elements together and what have you got? A nation obsessed with gambling and sex but able to satisfy their cravings for vice in less time than it takes to heat up a meal-for-one in a microwave. Good heaven ®
