Why are Women interested in Gay Porn?

Everyone knows that women watch porn. It would be plain stupid to say that if they are left alone in their home with a laptop that they won’t. After all, they are just are horny as men and are just as interested in seeing their dirtiest fantasies brought to life as the next guy. But did you know that around 1 in 5 women are attracted to the idea of two men having sex? With this interest, it is not surprising that statistics have actually shown that up to 36% of Gay porn viewers are heterosexual and female.

Why Do Women Watch It?

If you are a man and you are reading this, you may want to try and think of the reverse in order to answer this question. Why do men watch Lesbian Porn? Is it for the “taboo” thrill, the fantasy that you could have a chance to be with them or maybe, just maybe, you enjoy being able to idolise the feminine form so close up? Take this means of thinking and apply it to the idea of women watching gay porn. If there is something that excites you about watching two women, then you will find that the same thing happens to women who watch two men together.

No matter what sort of woman watches Gay porn, whether they are one of the many Leyton Escorts or an everyday University student, Janet Hardy, author of “Girlfag” and a sex educator, has claimed that the enjoyment comes out of “seeing two strong men who are vulnerable with each other and the sweetness of finding affection inside that strength.”

Women enjoy being able to emotionally connect with the actors they watch. That means with porn, they enjoy being able to see a softer to the masculine archetypes that are found within heterosexual porn. Most straight porn usually entails a strong masculine image that usually ends in penetration for the female. That is why it can feel like a safe space for a woman when she watches the reverse happen.

The Thrill Of The Taboo

Let’s face it after a while straight porn can become a little dull for those looking for that kinky little thrill. The problem with watching too much porn is that it can get a little stale after a while. Boredom can come along if the same subject matter is repeated, which it usually is within straight porn. Gay porn can add a brand new dynamic or add a brand new fire to those who are interested in exploring their sexuality, without going too far out the box.

Not only is this explored through video, but going on any sort of fanfiction website can bring you face to face with gay “lemons”, aka. smut, from a range of fanbases. From Harry Potter to Dr Who, there will always be someone who pairs together two male characters in hot and spicy smut, and usually, the writers end up being Female.

The thrill of this naughty act can truly liberate a woman’s sexual urges. The fact that they can see two masculine bodies together, combined with the feeling of it being a forbidden past time, can really turn up the heat when it comes to their own sex lives. Whilst their partners may not be gay, or they may not be interested in that sort of relationship in real life, that does not mean that they cannot fantasise about it. Being able to watch this sort of porn can be a true release for those who are into it.

Romantic Subplots

Women have always been guilty of indulging in the emotional storyline or characters when it comes to porn. However, when this porn is combined with a sensual story, or perhaps even a kinky back story, this is something that makes it ten times better. A lot of Gay Porn tends to focus on the sensuality and vulnerability of the participants. That is why it practically oozes romance. It is also a great way of getting into the mind of men. When a woman is trying to navigate between different potential mates, gay porn is the perfect way to get an insight into the idea of what these men may want. Although they may not want penetration, it is a great way to see how a man reacts to sex and the techniques that they enjoy.

How Old Are The Women That Watch Gay Porn?

Honestly, the age range tends to vary between different groups. Gay Porn is the sort of thing that women slowly grow into once they start to uncover their sexuality. Take one look at Tumblr and you can see where these sort of women tend to go in order to find like-minded individuals. It is not unheard of that more mature women go online to find Gay porn to watch. After all, they may be happily married with a fantastic sex life, but still, want to enjoy their own time indulging in some of their deeper fetishes. As Sex Therapist, Vanessa Marin, states in an interview with the Metro:

‘I think people are getting more experimental with their porn usage. People are feeling a greater permissiveness in gender and sexual expression, and that’s being reflected in our porn consumption.’

At the end of the day, whether the user is a gay man or a heterosexual woman, if they feel comfortable with gay porn, then there is nothing wrong with indulging in that. The fact that there is now a feeling of confidence and freedom when it comes to our sexual habits shows that we, as sexual humans, are going in the right directions.

What’s Wrong With Women Watching Gay Porn?

Honestly, there is genuinely nothing wrong with a woman being interested in gay porn. What she is interested in is her own prerogative. It is only a compliment if she is willing to share this information with you, due to the fact that it clearly means that she is comfortable in your presence and willing to disclose her sexual fantasies to you. We all have our own dirty fantasies that we can indulge in on Pornography websites. Therefore, never shame a woman about her sexual kinks and interests. Whether she watches Gay Porn or perhaps something more niche, like feet or sensation play, what makes her happy cannot be changed. So simply allow her to relax and indulge in her fantasies. Gay Porn is for all who are stimulated by it and certainly will not be going away any time soon!
