A Women's guide to PornThe Written Word

True Lust by Tristan Taormino
How about that? The director mentioned in the last video item is also a great erotic writer, and Bussel highly recommends her book, True Lust. The collection of first-person essays “cover a range of sexual topics from lap dances to kink,” says Bussel. “They are all extremely well-written and give an overview of many sexual subcultures and practices, like a sexual buffet.” And what girl can say no to a buffet?

If you’re looking to read about sex for more than just pleasure, Bussel recommends checking out SexIs Magazine. Also available in print, this online publication “has everything from columns by a woman learning how to be better in bed to straightforward, excellent video tips from feminist porn star Nina Hartley.” The site also features helpful articles about body image, how to make your sex life “green” and buying guides for all things sexy.

Read What Men Really Want: Everything You Need to Know About Oral Sex

Five Minute Erotica, edited by Carol Queen
In the mood for a quickie? (Quick read, that is!). The short stories contained in the Five Minute Erotica series (see also, More Five Minute Erotica) may be exactly what you were looking for. “These are very fast reads, by design,” says Bussel. “The topics are varied, written by men and women, and are perfect to read when you only have a few minutes, want something to read to a lover, or just want to enjoy while in the bath.” Sounds like the perfect solution for the busy gal on the go.

From the title alone, you should know that this book is a keeper. “These stories are outrageous, exciting and all written by women – and they cover a range of popular fantasies, from sex with strangers to exhibitionism,” says Bussel. “Each one grabs you and makes you want to read through right until the very end.”

No matter what book or video you opt for, just remember that erotic material is supposed to be enjoyed. If you feel like you made the wrong choice, don’t feel bad about closing out of your browser or putting the book down. On the other hand, if you’re fully enjoying yourself, don’t feel bad about that, either! After all, indulging your erotic side is one of the best ways to instantly feel sexier – and no one can argue with that.

    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
