LOS ANGELES—The latest Vivid Entertainment/XCritic.com "Sex Tracker" poll indicates that 61.4 percent of men would consider marrying a porn star and 85.8 percent said they would be happy to date one. The online survey of sexual preferences also revealed that 86.7 percent of respondents consider adult entertainment to be "a positive part of our culture."

The survey also indicates that people learn from the adult films they watch, with 64.3 percent of respondents saying they've tried "positions or moves" from a film in their personal sex lives "and it was great." Another 60.4 percent said they have used sex toys on themselves, on a partner or together with a partner.

Amidst a rapid rise in availability of "free" porn on so-called tube sites, the Sex Tracker survey discovered that 33.5 percent of respondents "just use them to get off," while 29 percent prefer to see their favorite performer on a DVD release versus any other delivery method.

The survey also asked respondents to name their favorite XCritic reviewer, the top nod in the poll went to veteran reviewer Don Houston, a voter in the annual AVN Awards and member of the XRCO. "It's great to see Don get this kind of recognition as he's one of the most important voices in adult entertainment criticism," said XCritic.com Editor Chris Thorne.

The sixth Vivid Entertainment/XCritic Sex Tracker Poll ran on XCritic.com in November as a completely anonymous survey administered by a third party polling company. The survey received over 500 responses, 58 percent of which classified themselves as "moderate watchers" of adult entertainment.
