Why So Many Straight Women Watch Lesbian Porn?

Straight women are supposed to be straight. The norm is that straight women love penis. So should we be shocked that the average straight woman would peek at, let alone watch woman-on-woman action?  Lesbian action often comes as the exclusive preserve of horny straight men that need variety and depth. That belief is mostly not true, because straight women watch other women play around. There are statistics to back this claim.

A 2014 report from porn site Pornhub working with Buzzfeed showed “lesbian” was the top viewed category among female users. More statistics reveal women were 445 percent more likely than men to search for “girl on girl” action. So we see that a lot of straight women get off from viewing same-sex porn.

The next logical question becomes: Why? Why do so many straight women watch lesbian porn? The reasons are not far-fetched:

  1. In part, blame it on the good old curiosity.

Many straight women will admit that they chanced in on lesbian porn. While surfing the net one day, pictures pointed in that direction, and they hooked on. From those first steps, these women caught the lesbian porn bug and have never looked back.

  1. Straight women watch lesbian porn because it deviates from the norm.

One particular woman gave this reason for watching lesbian porn: “Lesbian porn is much sexier to me because it tends to be less aggressive, more relatable. (I consider it very vagina-focused and not all about the d, obviously), and “softer” in some senses. I’m not at all interested in watching men come all over women or anything like that.

Another lady submitted this: “It’s a lot more tender and romantic than straight porn. Straight porn tends to focus on the man’s pleasure. With lesbian porn, it is solely the women’s pleasure.”

  1. Lesbian porn helps to explore their sexuality.

Many straight women credit lesbian porn for giving them sexual illumination. Watching one woman arouse the pleasure points of another expands the sexual horizons of many straight women. Lesbian porn may help these women listen to their bodies and find what works and what doesn’t. They can take the ideas from lesbian porn and use such to better their heterosexual experiences.
