Watching pornography at work isn't something many people would call advisable.

But apparently that doesn't stop everyone.

A new survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, has shown that about 3 percent of Americans admit to watching pornography while at work, according to Business News Daily. Whether they're watching it on computers or mobile devices, the survey showed that the majority of those online during work hours watch video in general.

The survey, which was commissioned by Qumu, a business video provider looked at all types of video people watch while at work. Apparently, 64 percent of those that participated admitted to watching videos at work, and on average, men are 20 percent more likely to say they watch videos than women.

The videos people watch in general vary from news, to sports, to viral videos to even full-length feature films. The study looked at 2,510 adults ages 18 and older.

But the percentage who watch porn may be even higher than those that admitted to it. In March 2010, following allegations that SEC staffers watched porn on work computers, the Nielsen company reported that 21 million Americans (29 percent of the adult workforce) accessed porn sites on work computers that month.

That said, this new survey looked specifically at video, and required a bit of honesty in participation, which may have affected the numbers.
