pornforwomenSo you’ve been surfing around the usual free sites, trying desperately to find porn that doesn’t automatically assume you’re a man. You’re sick of the sexism, the racism, the bad production values, the atrocious spelling! You want something that speaks to you as a female, that reflects your experiences and desires.

You want porn for women, right?

The term “porn for women” is pretty nebulous and some people assume it only means softcore, candlelit romance. But it doesn’t have to be that. It can be any erotic content that acknowledges women as an audience. When you consider that the vast majority of porn is targeted at men – be they straight or gay – then looking for “porn for women” is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. It means you’re looking for something different, something other than the standard type of porn.

Thankfully there’s a growing number of websites and films that seek to cater to a female audience. This includes everything from more traditional erotica for women or “couples” porn to new wave feminist porn to queer smut and seriously kinky hardcore. The main point is, this new style of sexy entertainment understands that women like porn too. It’s taken mainstream porn far too long to work that out.

A great place to start looking is right here. Yep, Porn for Women TV features a large selection of videos from various erotic filmmakers so you can get a feel for what’s out there.

Sites

If you identify as straight or are looking for heterosexual content, there are a number of good sites that cater to straight women. For The Girls, founded in 2003, offers a selection of hetero couples porn and naked men (either posing or masturbating), along with a magazine-style archive of erotic fiction and articles. Similarly, Sssh.com offers a variety of straight porn from a more sensual perspective. Both sites are unashamedly “for women” and offer what could now be considered “traditional” erotica for women.

If you’re after more glamorous straight sex – what a lot of people call “couples porn” – then you’ll be pleased to know that the mainstream porn industry has started to sit up and take notice. A swathe of new erotic sites offer hardcore hetero scenes which have high production values, good-looking performers and a willingness to cater to potential female customers (even if they assume you’re only there to please your husband). So if you want pretty couples porn, you might want to visit Joymii, Babes.com or Erotica X. The camera still tends to focus on the women and cut the guy’s head off sometimes but it’s all very nice to look at.

A new site from British erotic film company Joybear has recently launched. It also seeks to cater to both women and men and it’s films have a focus on authenticity and interesting storylines. If you like your porn with a bit of a British accent, this will make you happy.

Feminist porn site Bright Desire could be considered a straight couples site but it goes beyond the limitations and labels that often accompany the idea of couples porn. Alongside the hugely popular videos of real-life couples having sex, you’ll find arty short films, fantasy masturbation scenes and queer and gay content, although it’s not a major part of the site. Bright Desire maintains that your fantasies don’t define you and invites women to explore a smarter and more positive vision of sex.

Lust Cinema is a membership site that allows you to watch a huge variety of female-friendly feature films, with new titles added regularly. The flagship of Spanish feminist director Erika Lust, this site features all her films plus the work of famous directors like Tristan Taormino, Maria Beatty, Jennifer Lyon Bell and others. It’s a great way to enjoy a huge collection of female-friendly movies at once.

FrolicMe launched in 2014. It’s an upmarket site featuring well-made erotic films aimed at women and couples.

Those after a more personal porn experience may enjoy Pornographic Love, a site celebrating the sexual relationship of a single couple. Lilyanne Bloom and Max Sauvage are a straight couple but they occasionally share their bed with others.

For some, “porn for women” means the pleasure of admiring the male form. Often, women have relied on watching gay porn to get their fill of eye candy but there’s a few places that do seek to cater to the female gaze. The aforementioned For The Girls is one site. There’s also Gentleman Handling, an arty, indie site that focuses on male masturbation. Mr Man is a new site focusing on nude male celebrities so if you want to amp up those movie star fantasies, you’ll love it. There’s also Heavenly Spire which is a more diverse celebration of masculinity. Or The Full English, celebrating British manhood.

If you identify as lesbian or queer or your tastes run to queer content, there are a growing number of sites that cater to you. One of the best known queer sites is Crash Pad Series, created by award-winning director Shine Louise Houston. The idea behind this site is that there’s a secret apartment – the Crash Pad – where queer lovers meet for wild sex. This site started out with an “authentic lesbian” theme but it’s expanded to include a wide range of orientations and genders.

Shine also runs the feminist/queer video-on-demand site Pink Label TV. This site lets you download individual films from well-known and emerging feminist directors. The selections run from straight to queer, vanilla to very kinky and everything in between.

You may also want to visit the sites of queer feminist porn creator and performer Courtney Trouble. Her first site Indie Porn Revolution (previously NoFauxxx) was the first adult site to use the term “queer porn”. It features a lot of non-traditional sexualities and identities – queer, butch, femme, trans, people of color, non-normative sexualities and bodies are all featured. You might also want to check out Queer Porn TV, another of Courtney’s sites, and FTM Fucker, a female-to-male trans site which she runs with James Darling.

There are a number of other queer, female-focused sites out there including Good Dyke Porn, Maria Beatty and Cyber Dyke.

If your tastes run to kink or BDSM, there are a number of female-friendly and ethical sites that may appeal. The Kink.com stable of sites feature a variety of kink and BDSM porn that includes female domination, female submission, fucking machines and a 24/7 playspace. Fans of spanking will enjoy Pandora Blake’s amazing Dreams of Spanking, which features a variety of scenarios, all produced with a strong feminist ethos (note, this site has been forced to close by the UK government). Or you might want to check out long-time BDSM mistress Julie Simone’s amazing site (not for the faint hearted). Meanwhile, Padded Kink is the only BDSM site that actively features larger performers.

Feminist BDSM performer and director Madison Young has successfully combined a porn career with art, creating films that challenge boundaries and show authentic female sexual experience within the context of power play.

Working within the mainstream industry, director Jacky St. James has established herself as a top quality filmmaker who creates great stories. Her films are more “couples” based but they are admired by many women.

Before retiring, documentary maker Tony Comstock created a series of films celebrating the sex lives and relationships of real-life couples.

* A note about the term “women”

This site is using the word “women” to include those who identify as women, whether cisgender or trans. In fact, the use of “porn for women” on this site is a way of identifying any kind of non-traditional or alternative porn and that includes trans porn. This site may well also appeal to straight or gay men and they are of course welcome to explore and enjoy what’s on offer here. In essence, I owned this domain name, I know lots of people search for “porn for women” online and this is my way of getting the word out there about all the different and diverse, primarily female-focused porn that is available.
