Straight Men Take Note: 11 Women Confess What They Love About Gay Porn

New research from the scientific journal Porn Studies is taking the internet by storm this weekend as it’s revealed a little discussed peculiarity of women’s pornography consumption habits. Specifically, that gay pornography is overwhelmingly the most preferred and watched genre of pornography available.

The study states that 82% of women prefer gay pornography to all others while 90% of the studies participants stated that they masturbated while viewing it. Of the study sample, only 53% watched lesbian themed pornography while 68% also watched heterosexual pornography.

Pornhub’s data seems to back this prevalence up with data. On their site, self identified females prefer gay pornography above all but one other genre of pornography on the site.

So, everyone is asking, why the preference for male dominated gay pornography? People’s pornography preferences can be a touchy subject and without being anonymous it’s difficult to get a real answer. So, I went to Reddit, where opinions are almost always unfiltered, to see what the women there had to say about the study.

It was extremely interesting and a lot of it seems to have to do with how terrible hetero and lesbian porn actually is and how it’s all geared towards straight men.

1. The Answer ‘Why’ Is Right In Front Of You

“Finally someone wrote about this lol I love gay porn. I think its kind of funny though because everyone knows why straight guys like lesbian porn but they had to ‘dig deep’ to figure out why straight women like gay porn?”

2. A Hilarious Explanation 

“Someone should make a parody ‘for men’ porn that directly reflects ‘for women’ porn and see what reaction they get. The guy should be really good looking, the girl should be average looking (and she should not have done any body grooming). All the focus should be on the guy and instead of looking like he’s enjoying himself he should be constantly looking at the camera and awkwardly adjusting his position so it gets the best view of his junk. The camera should always be focussing on the guys cock and balls, and the woman’s disembodied hands should occasionally come into shot and rearrange the guys genitals in frankly weird ways while the guy pretends this is the height of sexual pleasure. The girl should give him the roughest most robotic hand job while her head and body never enter the shot. The girl should be more or less silent and only partially in shot at all times, you never see her bum, boobs, face… Meanwhile the guy should be making ridiculous fake noises and asking the girl to do things to him in the most degrading way possible. He should deliberately speak with his voice an octave lower than it would be naturally. During sex every camera angle should show as little of the woman as possible; missionary filmed from behind so that you can see the guy’s back and butt, but only the girl’s shins and feet, doggy style filmed up high so you can see the guys upper body but only a glimpse of the top of the girls head and shoulder blades at the bottom of the screen. It should finish with a close up of the guys face, tongue out, making weird nasal moans as if he’s still getting off, while the girl finishes herself off off camera.

I bet the guys will love it!”

3. Regarding The Question Of “Disembodied” Organs In Straight Pornography

“Men in heterosexual porn were ‘ugly and out of focus at best, and just a disembodied cock at worst.”

I have never watched gay porn but have got really angry at this is straight porn, the female is there face an all, you often never even see the man’s face.

4. Straight Porn Isn’t Realistic

I prefer gay porn because I find the moans of the women in straight porn really off putting. Don’t know why, just weirds me out a lot.

5. Makes Sense

I read more gay male erotica than I watch gay porn, but what I noticed most about gay porn compared to straight porn is it’s much more sensual–at least what I’ve seen. A lot more kissing, a lot more heavy make outs, and it seems like they both actually enjoy it.

6. Gay Men In Porn Are Attractive

I never would have thought seeing two men have sex would be a turn on, but it is. After receiving a free DVD from a sex shop with my lingerie purchase, I popped it in, just to see what was on there. The gay scenes were the best and actually turned me on more that the hetero scenes did. In any case, I think watching any two, attractive people have sex is a turn on.

7. Regular Porn Just Doesn’t Look Fun

I dislike regular porn because, like the survey found, it looks like the lady is NOT enjoying the sex. The positions don’t look enjoyable and a lot of the videos are borderline abusive/humiliating to the lady. PASS.

8. Guys Are Hotter And It’s Less Fake

I prefer gay porn because I am not attracted to girls whatsoever, don’t want to compare myself to them, men in gay porn are usually better looking and it’s actually kinda hot watching two guys together. Also it often seems less fake.

9. Uncomfortable With The Humiliation

That article is accurate from my perspective. I used to watch gay male porn exclusively because I didn’t have to deal with the humiliation of the female actress. I mean it also helped that one guy is hot and two guys are hotter, but mostly it was about the more comfortable dynamics.

10. Straight Pornography Offers Nothing For A Female Viewer

To me, it’s less about the submissive/dominance perspective or the humiliation issue. It’s more so that the woman is used… like a prop, basically. Her orgasm is unimportant. Her sounds are fake and played up for a male audience. She’s in positions that aren’t offering her much pleasure (sometimes offering neither of them any) just to be more visually appealing. It’s a real lady boner killer. Her part offers literally nothing to me and you can’t just ignore her to focus on the guy because she’s squealing like she’s in the middle of anthropomorphizing into a wild boar.

With male on male, it’s typically a more equitable relationship. To the extent things are played up to appeal more to a certain audience, at least that audience is in to similar things.

11. There’s Nothing Women Don’t Want To See

Gay porn was a revelation for me. For the longest time I didn’t try watching it because I assumed I wouldn’t like it. But then I did and it’s great, in regular porn there is this feeling of ambivalence I took for granted because I felt kind of put off/repelled staring at random porngirls naughty parts. But with gay porn it’s all either neutral or attractive.

The overwhelming opinion appears to be that straight pornography is too fake, too much like gymnastics in terms of positions, and not at all focused on what a woman might want to actually take part in. On the other end, most women prefer looking at gay males engaged in what appears to be a fun sexual encounter over attractive women pretending to be lesbians for straight men.

So the real question is, since women are over half the population, where’s the straight pornography for women that depicts their actual hetero fantasies? TC mark
