More and more women are enjoy erotica, even the explicit types knowns as “porn”.

This article sheds light on an interesting phenomena: more and more women are watching, enjoying and following porn://www.good.is/post/what-women-want. Not only that, but they are finding their favorite performers, such as James Deen, forming fan clubs and even sharing that among themselves, through blogs. The privacy of the internet has allowed this. In the past, porn was pretty much an exclusively male club and occupation. Just thirty years ago porn was only available the adult theaters and book stores and you would rarely see a woman enter one of those, for understandable reasons. Then videos came along and, although women could watch porn in the privacy of their own home, they still had to go to a video store and rent the video in public. Most would not want to take such as risk as being seen so it was usually only through their husbands or boyfriends that they would have viewed any kind of porn. Their choices then would have been limited by the tastes of their partners. Now, with the internet, any woman can watch the porn she enjoys in the complete privacy of her own home. And the results of this are interesting.

So this male porn star Deen has been changing the landscape of porn, at least as far as gathering a loyal following of female fans.

The article above suggests that most of Deen’s female followers enjoy his work because he somehow connects emotionally with his female counterparts. This may be true, I really don’t know. Yet, if you view a bit of his porn, you see it also contains a lot of rough, dominant and aggressive sex. Perhaps the writer of the article was afraid to mention this appeal to a lot of porn to women, that it is a window into a sexual world they fantasize about but are often afraid to practice, or simply cannot find the right man to practice it with, the world of dominance and being dominated by a strong man. I think this appeals to a basic aspect of female nature in the same way seeing a feminine woman getting fucked, screaming and moaning, appeals to the male nature. Sexually, we are attracted to our sexual opposites: most men love feminine women, and most women love masculine men. These things are expressed in porn in an up front and completely unadorned way.

This is quite enticing…

The article states about one female fan of his:

She communicates her attraction only through her blog. “The few friends I have that actually watch porn are male and don’t really feel comfortable with talking about porn with me,” says Kay. Besides, “I’m pretty sure I’ve actually watched more porn than they have.”

In addition, the article mentions how there are many fan sites run by females concerning this porn star. This blog is one such site http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/james+deen The comments are mostly by women. It is entertaining to read.

Or this one, by another Deen devotee, filled with many erotic photos http://giddyupbitch.tumblr.com/ As the girl says: “I love pretty porn pics and pretty boys. And hoping one day I get trapped in a elevator with James Deen.”

Here is an image of Deen taken from one of his female follower’s blog, the first one mentioned above. I think I need to start a new blog category devoted to girls who blog about their enjoyment of porn. There are just too many out there now to keep it all straight.

So, it appears that more and more women are enjoying porn. Not only that, they are sharing it among themselves. They are slowly forming online communities where they are discussing their favorite stars, as if they were talking about soap operas or something. They seem to enjoy a variety of different porn styles. Yet there is still the notion that women will only watch “soft” and “feminine” porn, whereas in fact many women enjoy the more hard, raunchy and even aggressive types of porn that are so common today.

All this is a result of the internet, pure and simple. Without it, this would not have happened.

A lot of women enjoy visually explicit erotica too…

I love female sexuality. In many ways we are in the beginnings of a new world of female sexuality, where the old restraints are loosened and a truer, more honest appreciation of women’s sexuality can be better understood. Women are sexual creatures, in their own ways but just as much as men, and this makes many, especially the more conservative types, extremely uncomfortable. Just read the manosphere and the conservative Christian blogosphere  to see that.

But as for me…no…I love a woman who is in touch with and enjoys her sexual sides. I believe it is all part of a healthy sexuality. Enjoyment of erotica, even porn, is part of that. To me, rather than being some sort of evil, it is simply another form of entertainment. And a pleasurable one at that.
