Porn For Women Is Soft, Romantic And A Lot More Common Than You Think!

Porn for women has gotten a ton of attention ever since Fifty Shades of Grey became a thing, but it’s not like it’s that new.

Apparently “romance porn” is considered porn for women, and it basically consists of fewer closeups of nether regions (“money shots,” if you will), “realer” looking girls and story lines beyond being a questionably appropriate babysitter or forgetting your wallet to pay for your pizza. Porn for women has scripts beyond asking a dude to choke you or going to detention for being such a bad, bad girl, and the costumes are usually slightly better than something you’d find at Spencer’s on Halloween.

But other than that, what’s really new here? The real name for “porn for women” is just, well, “softcore porn,” and that’s been a thing pretty much forever. It’s just that hardcore porn has usually been more popular, since a lot of pornographers are appealing to the male market, which is where money shots and three-minute clips come in.

Former stripper turned porn director and smart cookie Nica Noelle explained why she’s created so much porn for women. “The only porn I had ever watched was passionless and no one could understand why these people were having sex–they looked so indifferent,” she told ABC News. “The only time they looked passionate was when women were being severely abused.”

A few explanations for that: Bad acting (for a lot of porn stars, they are indifferent–it’s a job) and the fact that, well, she a ton of other people still watched it, so it worked on some level. It’s great that people are paying more attention to porn for women–especially since women comprise about one third of porn viewers–and it’s great that people are making more porn for women. But it’s a little silly to act like it’s some newfangled revelation. Porn for women has been around forever, but it’s only now that people are comfortable enough to talk about it.

Do you think porn for women is new or that we’re just talking about it more? Do you think porn for women is less degrading and more titillating than regular old porn? Tell us in the comments!

There’s another new kind of porn for women–and men–who like reality over fantasy.

    We like it too! maybe even more.

    I think in some countries women make up to and more than 50% of the porn viewers depending on age. The younger the higher the percentage. I think its in countries where there is more equality with men like Sweden and Australia. But there should be more for us to watch.

    I think if we make up 30% of the porn viewers with the porn that is made now, which is more geared to guys, think about how much more it would be if they made porn more for our liking. We may even like it more than guys!

    The only thing that fifty shades of lame, I mean, Grey, has done well is letting women being more open up about sexuality. It wasn’t the first erotic book, and it won’t be the last but as a culture, it is less of a taboo for women to consume porn and erotic material.
