Only 'a small fraction of women' seek out 'feminist porn': report

Does hardcore porn turn women on? A new report says yes

Women may be turned off by porn that is made for men, by men but what about those women who do love to watch some ‘hard’ action?

According to a fascinating report, women are not seeking out female-friendly porn but, rather, the same mainstream, male-targeted and hardcore sites that men visit.

“There is a real interesting phenomenon in women’s sexuality – not seen in men’s – and that is this divide between what erotica should be and what actually turns women on,” neuroscientist Ogi Ogas was quoted as saying.

Ogas along with fellow neuroscientist Sai Gaddam conducted research on visual pornography in relation to female sexual desire in an attempt to unlock the secret of our sexual habits.

An interesting correlation is found between women who like hardcore porn and certain personality traits.

“Women who like hardcore porn tend to be more aggressive, more socially assertive and more comfortable taking risks. They are comfortable playing both roles sexually; they like being dominated and being submissive,” Ogas told AlterNet.

It is reasonable to imagine then that for a minority of women, their sexual brain develops in a masculine way, he added.

Ogas and Gaddam have written a book on the subject, titled “A Billion Wicked Thoughts: What the Internet Tells Us About Sexual Relationships“.

According to the authors, “there is definitely an audience for feminist-friendly porn, just a small audience and a small fraction of women overall. What is fascinating is that women commonly promote the idea of feminist porn and socially want to believe in it”.

Feminist porn doesn’t sound like much fun to most heterosexual women and with very few exceptions, it isn’t. It sounds like something you eat because it’s healthy rather than because you have an appetite for it. This is the factor that limits its reach more than any other. It may come as a shock to some self-described feminist pornographers out there, but men and women who like porn tend to like more or less the same things. You know, all that heteronormative stuff that feminist pornographers love to trash. Evidently female porn consumers don’t share the same political agenda as… Read more »

I suspect romance novels are what women who aren’t into “male” porn consume for their erotic needs.

Even in that instance, think about what’s on the cover: the strapping, powerful “heteronormative” male with the female in his arms.

However much it may infuriate a certain kind of anti-porn feminist, most women are straight and not so different in their sexual fantasies from men. Those differences appear to be stylistic rather than content-based. Dr. Robert Stoller, the UCLA sexologist who pretty much began the study of porn from an academic perspective, used to call romance novels “women’s pornography.” But the point was that, while there may be gender differences in the preferred method of delivery, the content is pretty much the same for straight women. I think much so-called feminist porn is really mislabeled. It’s not meant as a… Read more »
