Times have surely changed in the Internet porn world. Not that long ago we would settle for the best available suggestion of a sex-related thing and go with that. Always as a spectator, though; rarely being an active participant in the sexual experience. But, as we get more comfortable and used to a broader idea of what’s normal, more people seem to be diving right into what they’re curious about without minding all that obsolete social shaming.

In the midst of the never-ending celebration that is the International Masturbation Month, the social webcam site Cam4.com, with the aid of French survey institute Ifop, has released a study showing a significant increase in sexual confidence by the users of new communication tools and Internet technologies.

02BaDoink_com_Webcam_girlsThe survey took a representative sample of 1,023 Americans over the age of 18, sharing their sexual habits, and the results ended up being rather surprising.

According to the survey, 21% of women and 32% of men watch live sex shows online. Even as it’s been clear that webcamming is a quickly growing trend, the candidly high percentage is considerable, as sexual webcam activities still seem to have a stigma in many places. Skype sex is also on the rise, with over 26% of surveyed people saying they’ve had webcam sex before, while 48% answered they’d absolutely do it if given the opportunity.

The study also shattered some preconceptions about Internet masturbators. While the stereotype of the porn-watching person is that of a lonely and shameful one with no other resources to handle sexual release, apparently the people who watch the most adult material seem to also be having a lot more sex in real life. A whopping 52% of people who admit watching porn every week have at least one sexual relation per day, compared to the 19% of the population as a whole.

Sexting is also a massive phenomenon in our culture. Over 40% of women under 35 admitted to having shared pictures or videos in which they were naked or semi-naked through texts or social media. While real amateur porn is also growing steadily: 26% of men and women under 35 have recorded themselves having sex with their partners, and over 50% say they would do so “if the timing is right.”

Jas Kase, Cam4 Director of Marketing and Sales, reported: “The Ifop survey shows how new technologies and communication methods have truly modernized the way Americans have sex. They have also contributed to an evolved, sex-positive attitude. Through these findings, we have confirmed what we have seen on Cam4 – how cell phones, webcams, and the Internet have created a positive, healthy way for people to explore their sexuality, and have decreased sexual taboo. All of this has resulted in a much wider acceptance of people’s gender and sexual preferences, and overall desire for sexual exploration.”

It’s awesome to see the social stigma losing power by the day. It’s also great to see we’re starting to love ourselves as much as we love our gadgets.
