A study of online pornography found that a record numbers of men and women are downloading pornography from the internet, making Britain the fastest-growing market in the world for the booming 20bn pounds adult website industry.

Four out of ten men visit porn websites in the past year and a same number of them have downloaded porn in the past month, while the level of users has jumped from two million to nine million in just six years.

More women are also logging on with 1.4million trawling for porn, compared to a million a year ago. The figures make the UK’s 1billion pounds internet porn market the fastest-growing in the world.

Counsellors claim that it has an alarming effect on relationships, identifying it as a factor in 40 per cent of the break-ups.

Philip Hodson, of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, warned that virtual sex is making some men too lazy to bother with the real thing.

"The internet has made sex-lazy men even lazier. It used to be said that men neglected foreplay, but now they are neglecting sex," the Sun quoted him as saying.

A third of the people have "randy" genes which cause high levels of arousal, scientists claim.
