4 Explanations Of Why You REALLY Watch Lesbian Porn

Pornhub, which is the largest porn site in the world, recently released a stat that many of you might find interesting: female viewers are more interested in watching lesbian porn than male viewers are. In fact, lesbian porn ranked at number six for the things men are searching for on the porn site.

This is interesting for two reasons: one, it’s a stereotypical belief that men love lesbians and are totally into and turned on by lesbian porn, and two, it’s something you guys ask us about all the time. I read the questions you all send in every day, and I’ve become used to the daily questions about watching porn, especially watching two women have sex. Not just watching them have sex, but really enjoying it – in some cases, enjoying it so much that that’s the only kind of porn you watch.

Your questions are pretty similar: “What does it mean if I like lesbian porn?” “If I like lesbian porn, does that mean I’m a lesbian?” “Is it weird for a straight girl to be into lesbian porn?”

I totally get how this can be confusing. If you feel that you’re a straight girl who has had sexual relationships with guys before, it can be weird for you to feel turned on by watching two women have sex. In many cases, that feeling isn’t something you’re used to, and it can kind of make you question yourself. But girls, take this study as proof: you are the only woman out there enjoying lesbian porn. Apparently, most girls are doing it!

But what does it mean, you ask? Let’s go over some possible explanations of why you like lesbian porn:

1. You’re a lesbian. Sure, yes, it’s totally possible that you like lesbian porn because you’re actually a lesbian. Ask yourself these questions: Are you turned on by women in the “real world,” and not just in porn? Do you fantasize about women more than you do about men? Can you imagine yourself in a relationship with a woman? Are you turned on by men? If you’re always thinking about women sexually, and you feel like men just aren’t doing it for you, then yeah, it’s possible that you’re a lesbian. Cool!

2. You’re bisexual. It’s also possible that watching lesbian porn is something you enjoy because you’re into males and females.  You dig both sexes. You love watching women have sex, but you also have sexual feelings towards dudes. Cool!

3. You’re more turned on by something sensual than something hardcore. In most cases, lesbian porn is a little bit more sensual than heterosexual porn, although this certainly isn’t true in all cases. There are tons of different kinds of porn out there, and some lesbian porn may be a little more rough. In general, though, it’s easier to find a more sensual kind of porn with two women than it is with a man and a woman. Maybe that appeals to you more when you’re watching porn. Cool!

4. You’re a human being who gets turned on by lesbian porn and there is literally nothing wrong with that. Honestly, this is what it comes down to. Sex stuff is weird. Sometimes we’re turned on by things and we can’t explain why. Sometimes we’re turned on by things that no one else is turned on by. Sometimes we’re REALLY turned on by two women making out even though in real life we would never want to do that. Guys, it happens. It’s fine. I swear to you, it is fine. Watching and enjoying lesbian porn doesn’t mean that you have to rethink your entire life and sexuality. It’s not your subconscious whispering in your ear, “Hey. Like that video of that girl-on-girl action? You’re a lesbian.” It’s just you, enjoying some lesbian porn.

It’s worth pointing out that these PornHub insights also found that while lesbian porn is the number one search for women, gay porn comes in at a close second. So, it seems like this is more about women being more interested in watching what two members of the same sex do in the bedroom than it is about their actual sexuality. Conversely, men were most likely to search or MILFs, teens, anal, or threesomes. I’m not a psychologist, and this isn’t a scientific fact, but it seems to me like dudes are more turned on by slightly taboo things.

An actual sex therapist spoke to Women’s Health about why women are into lesbian porn about a year ago, when similar research was released. She talked about how porn is a safe way to explore what turns you on without actually doing anything – and as I’m sure you know, fantasy is a huge part of what people like about porn. She also brought up the fact that lesbian porn features a lot of foreplay, oral sex, and clitoral stimulation – all things that would of course turn you on.

The moral of the story is this: please don’t stress about being into lesbian porn. It really isn’t a big deal, and I promise everything is okay. Find what turns you on, and go for it! Everyone deserves to be sexually happy without shaming themselves for what they like. Have fun! Do you! No, literally, do you.
