A Guide To Porn For Women: From Fabio On A Stallion To Hardcore Sex

As anyone who has watched Avenue Q has heard, the internet is for porn. 😉 There is plenty of porn just a click (or Bing Search) away. But with all of the porn out there, some folks wonder…where is the quality female friendly porn?

What Is Porn For Women, Anyway?

The basic concept of porn for women is, well, porn whose intended audience is women. In the olden days of porn (well, not super far back — several years ago at least), a popular definition of this was more soft core, elegantly shot pornography or erotica that focuses on her pleasure, since pornography has been popularly thought of as more of a men’s pastime and a lot of the content has been created for and by men.

After all, even today, despite more women viewing porn online than ever before, 74% of worldwide users on Pornhub are men, and as such it is not a huge surprise tat a lot of content will be geared toward their interests. However, as the selection of pornography has expanded and more women are starting to partake, so has our understanding of what constitutes “Porn for women”.

“Porn For Women” May Not Be For All Women

The term can be a bit of a misnomer — not all women want seemingly soft, gentle porn or written erotica about a prince on a stallion carrying them into the sunset for some sweet, sweet missionary sex. Some women like more graphic, rough, and even violent themes of porn. And, of course, you can like both! A Pornhub study of user traffic on their site shows that women are 113% more likely to view “hardcore” porn than men.

A Mic article expands a bit on this:

“For starters, while we typically think of “gangbang,” “fisting” and “double penetration” as hallmarks of male-oriented hardcore porn, it looks like ladies are getting off to the rough stuff as well. In fact, they might even be getting off to it more often than dudes are.”

This interest in hardcore pornography runs counter to what has been popularly considered porn for women. While the idea might be difficult to digest for some people or even outright disgust, this shows that women have a broad range of fantasies, and yes, just like men, some women have fantasies that can be considered weird or disgusting to some. There isn’t any catch all category of “porn for men”, and likewise, there truly isn’t a catch all “porn for women” category either. It’s like women have diverse interests, or something. 🤔 (sarcasm, in case that wasn’t obvious)

There is nothing wrong about having fantasies so long as they are fantasies or, if they become reality, everybody involved is enthusiastically consenting, treated with respect, and not violating anyone’s boundaries. Likewise, there is nothing wrong either if you prefer to curl under the covers with a corny romance novel with Fabio and your favorite vibrator. Or, heck, sometimes there’s nothing better than to cut all the fantasies and extra frills to just have an afternoon quickie.

Ok, That’s Nice And All… Now Where Do I Find Me Some Quality Porn?!

Maybe you skipped that entire introduction. You’re in the mood and you want to get it on, stat! We got you.

If you are looking for some platforms that are advertised as more female-friendly, whether it’s softcore or hardcore, visual or written word, or just a fresh perspective on exploring sexual fantasies, here are a few places to explore your fantasies! There is a huge variety out there and all of these are different, amazing, and fun in their own way. Explore at your leisure and find your favorites!

LadyCheeky

If Tumblr is your jam, LadyCheeky is the go-to place for porn for women. Created by sex educator Elle Chase and coined as “smut for smarties”, LadyCheeky is a curated collection of sex and body positive, sensual, and of course, sexy images. If it’s your first time on the site, you’re in for a beautiful celebration of female sexuality.

“LadyCheeky.com is committed to bringing you curated sensual images and gifs that depict palpable desire, unbridled passion and body positive eroticism.”

XConfessions

Erika Lust is a leading adult filmmaker who creates pornography like an indie film — cinematic, thought provoking, and titillating. One of her series is called XConfessions, where sexual fantasies are crowdsourced by the audience and created into a cinematic reality.

“A collection of crowdsourced explicit short films with high cinematic production values. XConfessions is featured in big media all over the world and establishes Erika as a filmmaker with great skills to portray human nature through the narrative of desire, and a unique talent to merge eroticism with witty comedy.”

The Crash Pad Series

While this isn’t porn exclusively for women (nor are any of these technically, as we had previously mentioned), our genders and sexualities are diverse, and there are some pretty amazing queer porn sites out there that we needed to include Crash Pad Series in this list. If you are looking for ethical queer porn made by and for queer folks, The Crash Pad Series is a great place to go. In addition to becoming a member and perusing their content, you can also watch their behind the scenes post-interviews. If you’re interested in getting to know what some of the actors are thinking and feeling while in a scene, can be fascinating and enlightening to watch.

“CrashPadSeries.com has long been recognized by lesbians as a dyke porn site, though much like a reflection of queer women’s community, we feature people of many genders and sexualities, as well as diverse ethnicities, body types and abilities, and experiences (such as amateur or professional).”

Make Love Not Porn (MLNP)

MLNP is the brainchild of Cindy Gallop, who coined the term sextech. All of the content on MLNP is created and submitted by real people who want to share their expressions of sex and love to viewers on their network. Since these videos are made by your folks from next door, they are much more raw, spontaneous, and real than your more big production films. You can view people who are in love, lovers, and anybody who wants to give you a peek into their intimate life to share sexual pleasure. You can check out their videos or become a MLNP star yourself!

‘We’re pro-sex, pro-porn, pro-knowing the difference.”

Literotica

Founded in 1998, Literotica has been the leading source of erotic literature on the internet. It’s sort of like a fanfiction.net of written erotic fantasies. You can find nearly 20 years worth of submissions on every single topic under the sun, or you can also go and contribute your own stories to the erotica bank. If written word gets you off, this is the first place to go.

“Literotica features 100% original sex stories from a variety of authors. Literotica accepts quality erotic story submissions from amateur authors and holds story contests for contributors.”

Dipsea

The newest audio erotica on the block is Dipsea. Founded by two women, Dipsea is kind of like a headspace for pleasure. They produce audio erotica for women to discreetly listen to and indulge in titillating fantasies. They recently launched their beta so they have a small but thriving community of listeners. If you want to support a new company of audio erotica for-and-by women, definitely check them out.

Their beta is live now, and you can also apply to write for them to make your own fantasies an audio reality!

“We don’t think women’s desire is a problem to be solved. It’s a fire to be stoked.”

Bellesa

Think of Bellesa as a more explicitly female-centric version of PornHub. You will find pictures, videos, and erotica that is more geared towards a female audience than most porn sites out there. Bellesa also has interesting articles over at Bellesa Collective about sex, sexual health, and pleasure, as well as their own sex toy shop.

“At Bellesa, we believe that sexuality on the internet should depict women as they truly are- as subjects of pleasure, not objects of conquest. Bellesa is a platform on which users can access sexual content that suits their desires, share intimate and erotic stories, and engage in a community of like-minded individuals.”

YouPorn

Last but not least, YouPorn is part of the Pornhub Network. Compared to the rest of the channels on the network, YouPorn has proportionally more female viewers, making it a likely choice to start your search if you’re looking for porn that other women seek. Like other large pornography sites, they have a broad array of topics so you can get a taste of your every whim and desire.

“If you haven’t figured it out by now, it’s shocking that you’ve made it this far. YouPorn is a 100% free streaming adult video site hosting hundreds of thousands of videos from every genre imaginable that services more than 15 million visitors worldwide every day.”
