A Women's guide to Porn

Women have plenty of different opinions when it comes to porn – many love it, some are intrigued by it, others are scared of it, and a good portion think it’s just not their cup of tea. (And then, there are also women who are addicted to it, a subject covered in the New York Times article, “The Other Porn Addicts,” about a Kansas church that’s counseling young women with this problem.)

But for those who enjoy visiting the erotic world from time to time, or would like to give it a try – whether it’s for pleasure, educational purposes or to explore fantasies – it can be hard to wade through the plethora of male-targeted content to find quality books and movies made with women’s interests in mind.

So we’ve enlisted the help of Rachel Kramer Bussel, Senior Editor at Penthouse Variations, host of the In The Flesh Reading Series and author of Please, Sir, to find the best women-friendly content out there – adult materials that don’t portray women in a degrading way, and focus more on the entire sensual experience than just the, er, happy ending. Behold, a list of sexy resources, just for us ladies!

Online Videos

Good Vibrations
This female-friendly website is a great resource for gals who are looking to spice things up, either with a partner or solo. Not only does Good Vibrations offer an array of sex toys, but they also have their own list of hand-selected “Videos on Demand.” These sexy movies have been divided into distinct categories, like “New to Watching Porn,” “Woman-Directed” and “Award-Winning Adult Movies,” that make it very easy to find a movie that’s just right for you – with no surprises.

HotMoviesforHer.com
If you ever wished you had a girlfriend who could give you XXX video recommendations as freely as she gives you dieting tips, then look no further than HotMoviesforHer.com. “The site features porn reviews by women, for women and can walk you through what you need to know when picking something out,” says Bussel. Once you find one that sounds good, you can stream the video by paying per-minute, downloading the video file or buying the DVD – the standard viewing options for most online sites.

Vivid-Ed
For the smart gal who takes a more practical approach to porn (e.g., bedroom research), the videos written and directed by Tristan Taormino on Vivid-Ed are a great resource. “These videos cover everything from fellatio to cunnilingus to the G-spot in a way that’s not scary,” says Bussel. “You can watch them as entertainment-type porn or as sex-ed lessons to learn something new.”

    If I may do a little self promotion: my site ForTheGirls.com offers both videos, photos and a wide range of erotic fiction.

    If you’re looking for good erotic films for straight women, try the work of Candida Royalle, Petra Joy, Erika Lust and Nica Noelle

    Did you try the dutch tv station Dusk! ? They broadcast female friendly porn 24/7 in the netherlands.

    They have a panel of about 2000 women who are and have been judging porn for a number of years. So the porn concider female friendly. Would have to been approved by a large number of women. This makes it very easy for us to find what sort of porn women really enjoy.

    Check out their website http://www.dusk-tv.com
