London - Record numbers of men and women are downloading pornography from the Internet, making Britain the fastest growing market in the world for the booming �20-billion adult website industry.

In the first definitive portrait of the nation's growing consumption of pornography, The Independent on Sunday revealed that more than nine million men - almost 40 percent of the male population - used pornographic websites last year, compared with an estimated two million in 2000.

In a major survey for the Independent by Nielsen NetRatings, the world-leader in Internet analysis, the research also discloses that women are among the fastest growing users of pornography on the Internet, with a 30 percent rise from one million to 1,5 million in the past 12 months.

The figures also show that more than half of all children - about seven million - have encountered pornography on the Internet "while looking for something else".

Until now, the extent of the use by Britons of Internet pornography had not been accurately measured. But the new figures show that one in four men aged 25 to 49 have visited an adult website in the past month - a total of 2,5 million.
