14 Straight Females Reveal What Kind Of Porn They Search For

Porn is one of the most controversial topics out there, but that doesn’t stop anyone from being curious about it – not just about what’s happening in porn, but how others feel about it. If it seems slightly voyeuristic to think about what kind of porn other people are watching, that’s because, well, it kind of is. But that doesn’t stop anyone from privately thinking about it, even if it’s something they would never voice out loud. In fact, one of the most common questions we get from our readers is, “What kind of porn should girls watch?” or “I’m a straight girl who likes to sometimes watch lesbian porn. Am I normal?”

You aren’t alone in asking those questions! There was a recent Ask Reddit thread that posed this question: “Straight females who watch porn, what do you search for most?” The thread got hundreds of responses, and reading through them is interesting, even if you’re someone who isn’t totally into porn. Some of the responses might make you feel better about what you personally search for, and some might give you answers to questions you might have about female sexuality. Either way, you can’t deny that it’s not interesting. Getting a peak into the private sex lives of others is something we’re all curious about, whether we say it or not.

If you’re wondering if your own porn searches are “normal,” or if you’re just looking for some ideas on what to search for yourself, this is for you. Watching porn might not be the most moral activity in the world, but there’s no denying how common it is. So let’s talk about it instead of making it seem more taboo! Check out what these straight females are searching for when it comes to porn – and if you feel comfortable, leave your own searches in the comments below.


Lesbian Porn

One of the most common questions we get from readers of Gurl.com? This one: "Does watching lesbian porn mean I'm gay?" Answer: no. If this Reddit thread is any indication, most women watch and enjoy lesbian porn more than guy and girl porn. Why? User [deleted] explains, saying, "Lesbian porn. Anything girl on girl. To be completely honest I just get off better. Lesbian porn for the most part is more passionate, more believable and they look like they are enjoying it more. I still watch hetero porn every now and then. But with lesbo, the focus is more on the women."

Women Masturbating

For some women, it's not even about watching two people get it on. User Kmart1008 says, "Honestly, I like to watch women masturbating. But it's not because I'm attracted to women- it's because I'm imagining what it would be like to be that woman, and have tons of guys rubbing one out to me doing dirty things to myself. Never is there any desire for the woman involved. It's all me putting myself in their shoes."

Females Being Submissive

Of course, not every woman is only into lesbian porn. Some women like something a little bit more "traditional" when it comes to penetrative sex. User kristallisk said, "Mostly things that involve a power dynamic with the female being in the submissive role." Think Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Gay Porn

Hey, lesbian porn isn't the only type of gay porn out there! Some women prefer to watch two dudes get it on. User gabs_ 2410 says, "Gay porn. The female-centric shots during straight porn are too icky and distracting for me, I don't want the focus to be on big tittied women faking orgasms. The reverse logic must be why guys like girl on girl as well, escaping the dreaded balls-POV. Additionally, I appreciate the animalistic side from seeing two sweaty guys going at each other."

Realistic Videos

While a lot of dudes seem to be into porn scenarios that they would probably never experience IRL, a lot of women prefer something that is a little bit more realistic and not as hard-core. A common answer was one similar to this, from user sexual--innuendo, who said, "normal couple having sex where guy isn't taking advantage of her and girl isn't making a a weird 'ow, this is painful and I'm so intimidated by your genitals' face and is not haphazardly moaning and saying oh yeah when nothing is actually stimulating her."

Guys Masturbating

For some women, it's all about the guy's pleasure. User peachespups says, "Guys jerking off, especially if it's loud (moaning, heavy breathing, etc). Occasionally for some dirty talking although most of the time it's a bit cheesy."

BDSM

A lot of people assume that girls are only into porn that is "soft" and more "romantic." That's not always true! A lot of women are into porn that is a bit more hardcore, like user Shoxabox, who said, "LOTS of BDSM, girls tied up. Rough stuff where the girl is really getting off.. lesbian, orgasm, forced orgasms.. I just like watching girls cum because I know the feeling!"

Porn Featuring Women With Similar Body Types

For many, porn is an escape from reality. They look up crazier and more kinkier videos because they're looking for something different. But again, a lot of women are more turned on by more realistic types of videos. User chibitrash takes that one step further, saying, "I generally like to watch videos with a girl who has a similar body type as mine."

Basic Porn With Classically Attractive People

Some women admit to just liking basic porn - you know, two conventionally attractive people having sex. User angelicism said, "It's harder to explicitly search for, but I also like heterosexual porn with classically attractive people (including and especially a classically attractive man! only small to medium sized tits on the woman, though) who genuinely look like they're having a good time pleasuring each other, no weird porny screaming and contortions."

Girl On Girl Stuff

Want more insight on why lesbian porn is so popular for straight women? User sunset_blues says, "I'm pretty straight, but I watch a lot of lesbian porn. There's a few reasons for that: first, there are way more good amateurish videos with cute, normal looking girls who seem genuinely into it (nothing turns me off more than exaggerated/fake noises, positions, etc). Secondly, girls know what girls like. Extended nipple play, not just a little bite and then on to the fucking, lots of fingering and toys, which are things I like irl so it's easy to imagine myself in the situation. Thirdly, and relatedly, with lesbian porn you're not going to have your hot fingering scene interrupted literally just before you orgasm by a giant cock in someone's face, because honestly (while I love cocks in person, don't get me wrong) I don't want to watch that particular imagery."

Real Orgasms

Again, realistic videos win for most women. User RabbitRobotica says she searches for, "Real orgasms, because I know what genuine pleasure looks and feels like. Those chicks getting pounded with angry or pained grimaces on their faces only make me uncomfortable and turn me off. I guess I relate to the girl(s) in porn."

Reading Porn Instead of Watching It

You may have heard the thought that men are more visually stimulated than women, which is why men need porn to get off and women don't. Well, that thought is true in some ways - although it obviously doesn't mean women can't be turned on by porn. It just means women can get just as turned on by reading or even thinking about something sexy. User MiddleClassNoClass proves this, saying, "I don't watch, I read. literotica.com is a good site with lots of categories."

Amateur Porn

User iamasecretthrowaway says, "Amateur everything. I hate fake orgasms and over the top moaning and that weird ugly hissing thing porn stars do, like when Peter Griffin hurts his knee. That's not sexy. What even is that? I much rather real people getting off. Man, woman, gay, straight. Don't care. Orgasms turn me on."

Women Only

And one more person for lesbian porn! User Princess_and_a_wench says, "I'm straight as they come but for whatever reason, the porn I watch only involves women often. The men tend to be unattractive or not the type I'd want to tap, so it kills the fantasy. That said, I like lots of domination, light teasing/torture. Anything that involves tickling,spanking, forced orgasms, anything that involves being tied up and helpless usually does the trick. My kinks are fairly vanilla, but just enough pervy that I'm too embarrassed to tell the bf. so to the internet I go!"

Which one of these responses do you relate to? What kind of porn do you like? Tell us in the comments.
