One in four UK home Net users visited porn sites in June, according to the latest stats from Internet monitoring company, NetValue.

It found that 3.8 million home Net users spent more than 45 minutes sniffing round XXX sites.

However, the UK was out-sauced by Net users in Germany. There, 5.3 million home Net users spent more than an hour visiting hot sites, while the research found that 40 per cent of Spanish home Net users visited a mucky site in June.

Said NetValue's Alki Manias: "Pornography has become a lucrative online business, with many companies now recognising it as a valuable additional revenue stream."

"And this would seem to be a stable business area - the popularity of online pornography continues unchecked," he said.

And he's right. In the UK lastminute.com recently introduced adult material for sale and Germany's T-Online is also moving into the adult business.

However, back to the UK figures. Closer inspection reveals that students make up the biggest single group of porn visitors. The second biggest group was, ho hum, "manual workers", which is handy. ®
