Why Do Straight Women Watch Lesbian Porn?

Did you know that according to PornHub’s annual survey, “lesbian” is the most popular category for female viewers? This might come as a surprise because quite a lot of these viewers (roughly 1 in 3) are straight women. For the most part, these women have probably never considered getting frisky with other women. So why do they watch lesbian porn?

The answers might surprise even the most openminded porn enthusiasts.

Lesbian porn isn’t an exhibition of sexy camera angles.

While lots of older lesbian porn cater to straight men who love watching them, the tides are shifting to appeal to women. In these women-centric porn movies, the lesbians don’t focus as much on exhibiting the best moves. Instead, they focus on each other’s mutual pleasure. In other words, lesbians in porn dish out oral sex that’s the stuff of fantasies.

Lesbians in these porn flicks do whatever it takes to really give and receive pleasure. It’s less about the theatrical moans and more about bringing each other to orgasm in the most realistic way possible. Even though the realistic way isn’t as visually appealing, it’s knowing that it resembles real sex that makes lesbian porn so enticing.

It’s a fantasy.

Many people watch porn for the fantasy aspect. In porn, everything is possible. You can imagine yourself in any scenario you watch – from orgies to BDSM to trying out impossible sex positions. Straight women sometimes enjoy indulging in the fantasy of getting it on with another woman. They know that they’ll never try it out in real life.

However, in their own little porn fantasy world, these women catch a glimpse of what it’s like to be with another woman. They can imagine having a woman who’s 100% dedicated to giving them pleasure. For straight women who have an unfulfilling sex life, this fantasy can be enough to fuel their desires.

Lesbian porn is more sensual.

There’s no doubt that, in general, lesbian porn tends to be more romantic. There’s a lot more kissing and teasing involved. Compared to most mainstream straight porn, lesbian porn is much more enticing to watch if you want to see more than just sex.

Women tend to feel more aroused when there’s a psychological element involved. Lesbian porn is all about titillating the senses and setting the mood, arousing both your mind and body. This makes it the perfect kind of porn for women who want the full-body arousal experience.

Lesbian porn caters to all genders and sexes. That’s why many porn companies are now working to create girl-on-girl porn that appeals to all of them!
