, one of the largest porn video sharing sites on the Internet, teamed up with Buzzfeed to find which states watch the most gay porn.

Porhub and Buzzfeed wondered: "Do the states with legalized gay marriage watch more gay porn than the states where it is still illegal?"

Although the research found that states that legalized same-sex marriage watch more porn than states that have a ban on same-sex marriage by 7%, some Southern states had the biggest number of gay porn searches.

According to the research, however, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia had the largest number of people searching for gay porn. In Mississippi, 5.58% of porn searches were for gay porn, in Louisiana 5.44% and 5.38% in Georgia.

"The results get trickier once you start looking at the map, state by state," Pornhub writes. "The majority of states with a high percentage of gay viewers is in the South, where gay marriage is illegal in all states. Dixie loves dicks so much, that the percentage of gay viewers for every single state in the South is higher than the average of the legal gay marriage states."

For states that allow same-sex couples to tie the knot, Hawaii came in first with the most gay porn searches (5.38%) with New York and California tied in a close second (5.27%).

As for the straightest states, or states with the lowest percentage of gay porn searches, that honor goes to Alaska, Montana, North Dakota and Idaho - all of these states were below the 3% mark.

    Why would anyone expect a connection between porn viewing and gay marriage?
