Three conservative southern states have surprisingly topped the rankings for gay porn viewership in the US.

According to PornHub, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia come in first, second and third in the rankings, while Alabama and Florida also feature in the top ten.

Despite apparently large LGBT communities, none of the top three states offer protection from discrimination for gay people, and all three ban same-sex marriage.

However, Alaska, Montana, North Dakota and Idaho consume the lowest amount of gay porn.

Mississippi, which accounts for a hefty 5.58% of gay porn consumption in the US, was named the least tolerant state towards gay people last year.

Politicians in the state will presumably be shocked to find out just how many gay citizens they have.

Last week, an adult gay TV channel in Canada was told off for not showing enough Canadian content.
