What Different Types Of Porn Media Are There?

I personally love porn. I’ve been a consumer of it for a long time and as weird it is to say, it actually helped me to realize that I was trans. The type of porn I was consuming pre transition was mostly written erotica and comics dealing with a male that gets turned into a female. I was initially embarrassed by the fact that this type of porn was my go to but slowly realized that there might be something to this and it got me thinking about the possibility that I was trans.

After having been deep in the closet for years and years, it prompted me to do a bit of soul searching which led me to a therapist which led to the realization that I was trans.  It doesn’t seem like it from reading that last sentence but that realization process took years and a few more cringey experiences haha.  I’m not so sure I would have had that realization or accepted myself if it hadn’t been for porn.

How Big Is The Porn Industry?

I think the porn industry caters to as many people as it can because the more content that you create that appeals to a lot of different people, the more money you’ll make. There are an insane amount of different genres out there in porn and chances are there’s something for nearly everybody.

However, there are genres of porn out there that will outperform others so it’s in the porn company’s best interest to create more porn of the more popular genres. If I remember correctly, the most search term and porn the last few years is lesbian porn, so porn companies will use that market knowledge and create more content and that genre because of its popularity.

That doesn’t mean porn companies stop producing in the other genres. It just means you won’t get as much content as the top searched terms. If there’s a big enough market for a particular genre, you’ll see a lot of content from that genre.

Why Are Videos The Most Popular?

It’s the visceral experience. It appeals to multiple senses and it allows you to kind of sit back and enjoy the ride so to speak. In other forms of porn, like art or comics, your brain kind of has to fill in the pieces.

Like in written erotica for example, you can read the story but you have to visualize the world or scenario or sex position etc. Whereas in video porn, there is no element of that.  What you see is what it is, your brain doesn’t have to fill in the blanks and it can focus more on the pleasure. Having said that, alternate forms of porn can be a more preferable thing for some people to enjoy.

Other Types Of Porn Media Available

There are alot of different kinds out there but aside from video media, there are comics, which can vary greatly in art style and content. There are a huge amount of porn comics out there, some are very well done and you can see the care the artist puts into the art style and characters. But there’s also comics out there that aren’t so good, but I can guarantee you if it exists, there is porn of it out there and a lot of it is in the form of comics or erotic fan fiction.

Hentai is a big one as well and that is basically just pornographic anime or hentai and that can also vary greatly in scope and subject matter. It’s another one of those things that if there’s a kink you’re into, it probably exists in hentai or comics. For the most part, alternative forms of porn media consist in some way of a written story and art to accompany it, whether it be a photo or a computer-generated image or a gif or a hand-drawn page of characters etc. If you look hard enough, there’s something for everybody.

How I See The Porn Industry Evolving

In terms of adult media, with VR tech becoming more and more advanced and available, I think the industry will put a lot of its resources into that basket. With the price slowly dropping on quality VR headsets and more people buying them, the market for that is only going to get bigger. 

The top two revenue streams for the VR industry is gaming and porn, and the VR porn industry is expected to grow into a billion dollar industry by 2025. So it would only make sense for companies to push more VR scenes and websites to eat up that expanding market.
