Porn Viewers

Women Watch Porn Too!

The rise of feminism has given impetus to a lot of women and as a result of this more women are asserting themselves in the workplace, society, and even in the bedroom. Women are making a statement of their sexual preference and sexuality.  While some are exploring their sexuality without inhibitions, others are still hiding their sexuality. Today, there is a growing trend of women looking to pornography for insights, for learning, for new tricks and for some, a view to some unfulfilled fantasies.

Many believe that the rise in the number of women watching pornography is born out of women wanting to explore, to gain insights and that for some it is an avenue to reach deep into their soul, escape from reality to find what truly excites them, what governs their sexuality, and to catch a glimpse of those fantasies that may have no place in their reality.

Do you think that only men watch porn?  If you do, then you are way further from the truth than you can even imagine.  According to recently published user data by one of the leading internet providers of pornography; Pornhub.com, the percentage of women who watch porn is about 24% of women in America watch pornography, while the number sits at 21% for Britain, the world average is 23% and for some areas like Brazil, the figure gets as high as 29%.  So overall it’s about a quarter of women watch porn which makes it a massive market.  Men watch far greater amounts of porn, but many women still watch porn.

Porn For Women
Female Friendly Porn

It’s fair to say that when you access your typical porn sites they are designed for men so I believe that there will be a massive market out there for female orientated porn.  So it begs the question, what pornography do women like to watch?

The top category for women who watch pornography is lesbian porn. The user data shows that more women search for lesbian related acts such as “tribbing” and “scissoring”. In fact, these are two of the most searched sub terms for women.  A lot of lesbian porn involves vibrators and dildos and passionate exploration which I think resonates with most women.  A growing trend is also the category called “for women” which presents very sensual HD clips involving a lot of touching, kissing and sexual massages ending in sex rather than hardcore penetrative sex alone. The data shows that outside of the most watched category, women are also drawn to search the following: Milf, threesomes, BDSM and solo masturbation using vibrators and dildos.

In further trying to understand the reason behind the choice of lesbian sex pornography by most women, I did some research.  According to a study conducted by the OMGYES Pleasure report and published in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, covered over 1000 women aged between 18 and 68, on their sexual preference and how they like to be touched, aroused and brought to orgasm, it was observed that over 75% of the respondents agreed to stimulation of the clitoris and genitals by hand or tongue, application of pressure to pleasure points or other means in conjunction with penetrative sex. Only 18% agreed that vaginal penetrative sex alone was enough for a satisfying orgasm.

So if only 18% believed that vaginal penetrative sex alone was enough for an orgasm, that means that 82% believed it wasn’t enough which means that they’re looking for more than just penetrative sex to be satisfied.  I bet if you were to ask men 100% would say that penetrative sex is enough for them.  So we can see there’s a bit of a disconnect between what satisfies women and what satisfies men.

This is not to say all women like to be touched the same way but the important thing here is that looking deeply, you will find out that lesbian sex which is the most viewed pornography category by women mirrors the expectations of most women to obtaining a satisfying orgasm.  More women are taking a stand for what they desire and are looking to ways to fulfil their fantasies of maximum pleasure through pornography.

In my opinion and from the above findings, I am led to think that the image of stimulating sensual touch at play in lesbian sex evokes and settles a longing rooted deep inside of most women. With the world fast changing and cultures evolving, former barriers to sexual explorations for women are being brought down, the feminist movement is greatly influencing a lot of young girls and the result is evident even in their sexual and pornographic preferences.

Even though many of us knew intuitively that this was the case, the irony is that we needed the porn watching habits of women to show us what we intuitively knew.  I’m not the first female to say this and I won’t be the last, but foreplay is important.  Foreplay isn’t always wanted or needed though, sometimes we just want a wham bam thank you ma’am type scenario as well.
