Korea spends more money on pornography than any other country, according to BBC magazine Focus. The magazine analyzed 35 countries in the world based on the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The top 10 countries in the respective fields were listed.
The level of lust was calculated based on the amount of money spent on pornography per capita. What it means by pornography, and what kind of data was used for the analysis remain unclear. Korea was followed by Japan, Australia and Finland.
Korea ranked sixth in gluttony, which was topped by the United States, followed by Canada, Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom. "We gauged excessive sexual thoughts for each nation using the average annual income per capita from the porn industry, divided by the price of a Big Mac hamburger -- a measure of the cost of living in that nation. This gives an indication of the amount spent on porn per person," the magazine wrote.
Averaging the scores each country received in seven fields, the magazine made up an overall ranking. Korea earned 10 points for being the top finisher in lust, and five points for being in sixth place for gluttony. With the total, Korea was the eighth most sinful country in the world. Australia came top with whopping 46 points, and the U.S. next with 32 points. Canada was in third with 24 points, and Japan amassed 16 points in total, being second in lust and fourth in gluttony, finishing seventh overall.
