Porn star demographics

The Marginal Revolution blog led me to Jon Millward's page. Jon Millward is a sort of 'Ideas Detective', in his own words. Every now and then he comes up with a probing analysis of something 'new', like the last words of death row prisoners or call girl reviews.

His latest study makes a deep analysis of Porn star demographics. This is probably the largest study of porn stars ever undertaken, including age, race, hair color, birthplaces, film categories etc. It’s based on a massive data set of 10,000 porn stars extracted from the Internet Adult Film Database. 

Here is the 'Deep Inside Infographic' that combines all of the results (don't worry, the link is safe for work). And here is a map showing the birthplaces of female porn stars. California is reported to be the birthplace of one-third of all female porn stars!



obs. Jon Millward's work on the last words of death row prisoners is highly recommended!
