Porn For Women

Porn For Women - A Definitive Guide

The Debrief: Porn for women: where can you get the best porn for women and free porn for women? We investigate...

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.

It's not always labelled like that – if you're sick of traditional (what I'm going to call 'mainstream') porn, with it's ten-minute gynaecological close-ups and distinct lack of lingering cock shots, you might also want to look out for 'feminist porn' or 'female-gaze porn.' Our generation is pretty lucky, because we're living in a time when plenty of pornographers and performers have spotted this humungous gap in the market, and they're creating some amazing films that are designed to appeal to a broader audience than just one straight guy sitting at a computer. The future generation will be luckier, because for them these gems will be easier to find. For now, though, here are some suggestions on where you can find awesome porn for women.

Free porn for women 

Porn's a tricky one for women. Typically made by men for men, a lot of it is shot from the male gaze, with focus on the sexual aspects of womem, filmed for men to enjoy. And sure, if you like that, you like that, NBD. The nice thing about porn is that it's completely subjective; you get off to whatever you want to get off to, no judgement.

But, if you're looking for something a bit different than your bog standard 'Man with massive willy bangs girl moaning like a wailing banshee', it's important to know that there's other stuff out there too. There's now plenty of female porn directors (check our Erica Lust, Anna Span and Petra Joy) and, although they're not to everyone's taste, there's a whole lot of other stuff around the internet that women are getting themselves off to as well. In fact, some of the internet's most prolific fappers are sharing their finds right now on this Reddit thread. So, have a look through and see if there's anything for you. Who knows, you might be pleasantly suprised.

Oh and all links NSFW obvs. Unless you work in porn. Or freelance from home, in which case, draw the curtains first lest your nosy old neighbour Mrs. Perry decides to have a peek and gets the shock of her life.

Gay porn can be a winner

955955 says 'There is at least one gay porn studio* that makes 'gay' porn of straight guys having sex with girls, but the camera work focuses all on the guy and his pleasure.'

*We later find out that it's 'StraightGuysForGayEyes. SG4GE.'

But you might need to be selective

Babygotsap says 'I know on pornhub gay porn section, there is a ton of solo guys. Though you may have to skip some that also do solo anal if that is not your thing.'

PornHub's not just for guys

Bearathor5216 says 'I believe that pornhub also has a "for girls" catagory [sic]. Although I don't have personal experience with that myself, it could be something worth checking out.'

Also, Tumblr

Kaylamity says 'I would recommend checking Tumblr, actually. It's great for porny gifs, and often leans towards more female audiences... a place to start...' She recommends this blog and this one.

In fact, definitely Tumblr

Rissybean says 'There's also porn4ladies.tumblr.com that's pretty good. It's a lot of photos and gifs so not a ton of videos but it's nice!'

Reddit's also a good source

Zombiebitch77 recommends 'www.reddit.com/r/malesmasturbating It is literally just guys masturbating and getting themselves off. It is very great.'

And it doesn't always have to be visual

Zay 36663 says 'Check out /r/GoneWildAudio it's not visual, but it is fun.'
 

And, if all else fails

T_Rash says 'There is a site called forhertube.com
 
 

Want more porn for women?

Bright Desire

I can't speak highly enough of Ms Naughty, who runs this awesome site. Her work is all beautifully shot, focuses heavily on real couples and real-life pleasure, and gives me a lot of the one thing I love the most: faces. For too long porn has been about gynaecological close-ups and cutting to a shot of a bum just as you want to see someone's expression. Ms Naughty films people getting genuinely turned on, and making the kind of faces that show you they really mean it.

Good for: A lazy Sunday afternoon when you're horny but you want to savour it.

Cost: $19.95 per month

Beautiful Agony

I cannot possibly mention my love of faces without throwing in a mention of Beautiful Agony. It's the sort of concept that would have had me stumped 10 years ago: you show people wanking, but you only show their faces? It will never work. Well, guess what? They do and it does. They have more films of women than men, but to be honest they have enough guys that it would take at least a couple of years to watch all of them (depending on whether you work from home and therefore how many wanks you average a day).

Good for: If you have exactly my kink, which is watching people's faces twist in ecstatic delight when they come. 

Cost: $15

MakeLoveNotPorn.tv

This site is all about real world sex, so the people whose films you watch aren't professional porn performers. Don't use the word 'amateur' here though, because the site's founder, Cindy Gallop, points out that when it comes to sex none of us is an amateur: we generally don't shag exactly how the pros do. Part porn site, part political manifesto, MakeLoveNotPorn is all about challenging the narrative that there's one way to have sex, or that things like facial cum shots and hardcore DP – staples of much mainstream porn – are standard fare in most people's bedrooms.

Good for: If you want to feel like you're at a friendly orgy with your mates.

Cost: $5 per video. The money is split 50/50 between the site and the stars of each film.

Joybear

Joybear's unique sell is that it's not just porn for him or for her, it's there to be watched as a couple. And what attractive couples they are. I challenge you to scroll through their homepage and not find at least one person who makes you drool a little at the mouth. Joybear's films are very story-based, and they are also fairly mainstream, starring actors who look like they'd be as comfortable in a catalogue photoshoot as on your porn screen.

Good for: If you're trying to persuade your other half that you should watch porn together, but you don't want to go too kinky too soon.

Cost: $34.95 per month

Petra Joy

Like Ms Naughty, Petra also focuses on real-life pleasure, with a heavy focus on women's pleasure. Petra focuses a lot on women getting head (something which is massively neglected in a lot of mainstream porn), and if you're a fan there's a particularly cool scene in Female Fantasies where two guys go down on a girl at the same time.

Good for: Lots of people, but fans of oral in particular.

Cost: From around £7-8 per film, which you can watch at OpenErotik (or you can buy on DVD)

PinkLabel.tv

If you've been thinking 'why is this so straight?!' then you've got a good point, and PinkLabel.tv is here to step in. Pink Label is an umbrella under which a whole tonne of diverse and awesome porn sits. They are most famous for the 'Crash Pad' series, which is based on the premise that there's a secret sex apartment somewhere in San Francisco dedicated to hot, queer sex. There are plenty of other concepts, though, as well as studios run by individual performers based on their own kinks. It's well worth an explore.

Good for: Finding something brand new, and seeing hot new performers that you may never have met otherwise.

Cost: membership to Crash Pad series starts from $25 per month, or you can rent individual movies/scenes to stream on pay as you go.

Naturally porn's always going to be personal – what hits the spot for one person might be the world's biggest turn-off for the other. So if none of the sites above has what you're looking for, I'll let you in on a little secret: all porn is for women. No, really. There is no rule which bans women from watching one thing or another. It's just that it can often be hard to find when a lot of mainstream porn is placed into categories of 'female-friendly' versus 'all the rest of the porn in the world.'

A good place to start your hunt, if you want to find more, is on the Feminist Porn Awards website, or over at the Feminist Porn Guide (run by Ms Naughty, who you'll remember from earlier if you're not already suffering from post-masturbation bliss-induced amnesia). I can also tell you that one of the best places to find porn for women (or anyone) is Twitter. When I was a lass you had to hunt for porn at the back of your mates' parents' wardrobe, but these days porn performers and producers are usually pretty active on social media. The benefit of a more open and diverse porn industry is that porn is starting to shed it's seedy image: it's not just for guys in macs sneaking DVDs out of sex shops any more – porn is a vibrant and exciting space, and those who make great porn will be happy to welcome you into it.
