Here’s a list of quotes about porn for women, women-made pornography and the female gaze. We don’t necessarily endorse these views.

“I want to make porn for women. Most pornography is brutal and doesn’t look pleasurable from a female point of view. So I’ve been saying that when I no longer want to act, I want to do that.” – Susan Sarandon, actress

“Porn doesn’t have to be sexist, or stupid, or degrading. It can be beautiful, realistic, positive and inclusive. Sex is a common human experience, albeit one experienced through the prism of gender. By making porn for women, I aim to even up the scales a little and bring a female perspective to the table.” – Ms. Naughty, “I make feminist porn” article

“My thing is female-relevant erotic films, we are doing something different. We want to see emotions, connection, intimacy and complex feelings. We want intriguing storylines, good characters, female pleasure, and all that packed in beautiful cinematography.” – Erika Lust, director

“Check the top 1000 books on Amazon. Most of them have a shirtless guy on the cover, because they’re smutty “romance novels” (read: porn for women) about a girl being swept off her feet by one (or more) billionaire alpha-males. There are literally tens of thousands of books out there about shirtless billionaire alpha-male vampires who can’t wait to mate with you.” – Oliver Markus, Why Men and Women Can’t Be Friends

“My theory on porn for women is it’s just porn.” – James Deen, porn star and alleged rapist

“Mainstream (free) porn sites do contain porn specifically aimed at women. But have you seen it? It’s sub-par hetero porn full of shit, slow ‘love-making’ under soft lighting.” – Stevie MacKenzie-Smith – “Porn For Women” article

“There are lots of different types of porn for men to satisfy their individual tastes (young, milf, big butts, big breasts, anal, etc.). So why wouldn’t there be porn for women which would vary with their particular preferences?” – Catherine Salmon PhD, “What Is Porn For Women” article

“Women love the whole idea of foreplay and contemplation the intensity of touch. And arousal and stimulation. That’s the key for a lot of women. That’s what brings them to orgasm.” – Maria Beatty, porn director

“We should be creating lots of awesome, great alternatives to pornography.” – Emma Watson, actress

“Men are visually aroused by women’s bodies and less sensitive to their arousal by women’s personalities because they are trained early into that response, while women are less visually aroused and more emotionally aroused because that is their training. This asymmetry in sexual education maintains men’s power in the myth: They look at women’s bodies, evaluate, move on; their own bodies are not looked at, evaluated, and taken or passed over. But there is no “rock called gender” responsible for that; it can change so that real mutuality–an equal gaze, equal vulnerability, equal desire–brings heterosexual men and women together.” – Naomi Wolf – The Beauty Myth

“Hands up: I hate the phrase ‘porn for women.’ Not because I hate porn that’s made for me, just the implication that all porn is for men by default, and we ladies need to scratch around on the edges of the erotic film genre, desperately hoping that someone will make a video that we can really get into.” – The Debrief
