The young executive sits with his back against the terminal wall and flips open his mobile phone. Using Google’s Mobile Search, he begins sifting through an array of tawdry “religious experiences” and nobody’s the wiser. Mr. Yuppie, like many others, chooses his mobile over his PC to seek out pornography, and Google has the numbers to prove it.

As relayed at NewScientist.com, Googlers Maryan Kamvar and Shumeet Baluja found in batch of 1 million searches queries that adult material made up one in five mobile searches.

A figure like 20 percent is far above that of desktop computers, where only 8.5 percent of searches navigate through the herds of two-backed beasts.

There’s not a lot of PDA (public displays of affection) on PDAs, either. A relative few mix business and pleasure as just 5 percent of searches on PDA devices were for porn.

The Googlers speculated that people see their mobile phones as more personal and private, and therefore were more comfortable making adult queries. A cell phone can be a more favorable device than a home or work PC because phones are typically only used by one person.

Google’s numbers don’t jive with the ICM Registry, the agency selected by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to oversee the proposed .xxx domain recently stricken down by the US Government.

ICM says that more than 10% of all online traffic and 25% of all global Internet searching is adult-content oriented. In June, ICM said there were over 100,000 adult webmasters worldwide operating well over one million adult domains.
