Do Women Watch Porn

Put the words porn and women in one sentence in any random conversation and see how many perplexed looks you get. The whole issue of women and pornography is a mystery to many people and has been subjected to studies seeking to answer one question; do women watch porn? Let’s face it; female porn actors are erroneously considered evil, desperate, lost, and people who have no respect for their bodies. The truth of the matter though, is that some of these female porn actors have the highest level of self-esteem and report happier sexual lives. But because of the stigma, many women tend to shy away from openly admitting to watching porn for fear of retribution. But when you get past the general society’s contempt for the ‘shameful, male’ porn habits, you will be surprised by women’s porn watching habits. So, what does ThePornDude know about women and their consumption of porn? Let’s find out J!

Women WATCH porn

Do women hate or love porn? Do they just pretend to hate it but watch it behind locked doors? Well, studies have shown that women watch porn. To put it into context, one in every three women watch porn every week. Nielsen ratings show that in every three people visiting a porn website, one is a woman. The myth that all women hate porn (some indeed hate it) has been effectively shattered. Moving on swiftly…

Lesbian porn

Now that we have established that women get stimulated by porn in much the same way as men, let’s delve into their porn watching habits. Women are fascinated by their fellow women. This is a surprise to most of you men who thought that women watch porn to see the muscled male actors or to learn tips on how to please their men. Women consider lesbian porn more erotically sensual than male porn. It is perhaps telling that the most watched porn category on PornHub is ‘lesbian.’ Some of the terms commonly used to search for lesbian videos include ‘lesbian threesome’ ‘lesbian orgy,’ ‘hardcore pussy licking’ among many others.

One of the reasons why many women prefer to watch lesbian porn is that it focuses mainly on the woman’s pleasure. This is unlike hetero porn which most of the times goes straight into a blowjob. The lesbian porn helps a woman in discovering all their sweet spots. Oh, and before you get it all wrong, a lot of the women checking out the lesbian smut are in fact straight.

Sexual fantasies

The effects of the continued interests for lesbian porn by straight women in the industry can be witnessed by how sites are now uploading more lesbian content. It points to a particular habit not easily discernible unless you research on women’s browsing habits. Having spent a better part of my life with women, I can comfortably say I know a thing or two about those habits.

The thing is, women harbor their sexual fantasies, much like men. One of the things they think about is how it would be like to have sex with another woman. They love the idea of having another woman touch them in all their sensual parts and vice versa. This fascination with their bodies drives them to watch porn. To some of them, lesbian pornography-which for this piece is not used to mean porn is mainly made for lesbians- is purely a sexual fantasy and not something they would be willing follow up on. Watching porn is the closest they can come to fulfilling that fantasy.

Expressing sexual identity

For some, lesbian porn is a little bit more complicated than just a sexual fantasy. Many women have indeed confessed to having questioned their sexuality at some point in their lives, especially in their 20s. Some are not sure about their sexual identities at all and would be willing to experiment sex with another woman where it’s not for their timidness. Watching porn to them is a way of ‘scratching the surface.’ Such sexual expressions would otherwise remain locked if the women did not expose themselves to lesbian porn.

Focus on turning women on

The appeal for same-sex porn where women are concerned also goes a bit more than just sexual fantasy. It has more to do with the fact that lesbian porn focuses mainly on things that turn women on, namely, stimulating the clitoris.

Studies have shown that 80% of women are unable to achieve orgasm during penetration. To women, oral stimulation is more erotic and satisfying (I hope the gentlemen are taking notes). Like earlier mentioned, lesbian porn focuses more on things that please women. There will typically be more foreplay, some tender breast stimulation, and such while in straight porn, it may go straight into a fuck scene or at best, a blowjob. There is a general sense that men don’t necessarily love going down on women and if they do, they are not particularly skilled. It leaves women with little choice than to rely on lesbian porn.

Some women use porn as an instructional tool for their husbands. One woman admitted that they watch lesbian porn together with her fiancé for him to know there are more sensitive parts of the woman’s body than just the vagina. In a nutshell, if it involves more foreplay, oral sex, more squirting and orgasms, women will be interested.

Lastly

For the longest time, the conservative society has fed people the notion that they should not be turned on by porn (sleep tight). Some self-righteous groups even argue that porn advocates for violence against women and all that crap which to me is nothing more than shallow mindedness. The truth of the matter is that even women engage in romantic, sexual fantasies because they are curious and secretly love it. If you happen to access your lady’s browsing history, now you know why you should not be surprised if you see Pornhub on the list, don’t you?
