In first place, I'm linking this wikipedia web page to show that, as a general rule, pornography seems to be banned in islamic countries (although it doesn't show data for all of them, it looks like a reasonable guess).

Pornography laws by region

In second place, I'm linking this other web pages that explain that, despite of that, islamic countries seem to have an higher than usual porn consumption. Mentioning for example things like six of the top eight porn-searching countries are Muslim states or that countries like Pakistan or Turkey top on search terms like "animal sex" or "child porn".

Do Muslims watch Pornography?

Porn Websites Among Most Visited In Islamic Countries

Why porn is exploding in the Middle East

I want to make clear that my question is not just about that they consume higher pornography than normal, it's about that they have that high consumption despite being banned, as a general rule, in their countries. So to answer question with a "yes" both having an higher than average consumption and pornography being generally banned on their countries must happen.

  • Google shows that it varies widely by country: trends.google.com/trends/explore/GEO_MAP/… – Avery Mar 29 at 12:29
  • Please pick a specific source and a particular quote for us to examine. As is, it's not clear what the notable claim is. – Brythan Mar 29 at 20:32
  • There's a whole bunch of claims in the FreeRepublic link with various levels of truth to them, not at all helped by the fact that the writer doesn't seem to cite any of his claims. I would recommend focusing on a single article and a single claim, it is too easy to accidently fall into a hole of trying to prove or disprove everything in every article. – DenisS Mar 29 at 20:45
