Almost 30% use Instagram to find pictures and videos to masturbate to….
It’s the go-to place for most people to see their friends’ latest photos, but it seems that some people have been using Instagram for dating, and even sex.
A new survey by sugarcookie.com has revealed the various ways that men use the social media site.
Over 1,000 men aged 18-35 were surveyed about their Instagram habits.
The most common reason (60%) was to keep up with celebrities and public figures, while 50% said that they used Instagram to follow photography accounts.
Harriet Sugarcookie said: “It really shouldn’t be that surprising. Instagram is primarily a photo-sharing site and celebrities dominate the biggest accounts.”
However, the survey also revealed the more seedy reasons that men use the site.
Almost 30% said they use Instagram to find pictures and videos to masturbate to, while 14% said they use the site to find dates.
Sugarcookie said: “Guys are really using Instagram to get lucky.
“It probably helps that girls way out number guys on Instagram so there are a lot of opportunities on the app for single guys.
“The term ‘Slide in DMs’ is seen as a compliment, since most people assume you have to be confident and smooth to chat up a random Instagram girl.”
Worst of all, the survey revealed that 5% of men have paid for sex on Instagram, while 7% have paid for nude photos or videos on the app.
Sugarcookie added: “Instagram has a lot of flexibility to give guys what they’re looking for romantically.
“Whether it’s hot photos to masturbate to, potential dates or paid meetings, guys can browse inconspicuously through endless hotties.”
