Is Female Friendly Porn Really Any Different?

When you visit a porn site, you’ll find a huge number of categories to choose from. Want to see an older woman show the young guys what they need to do to get her off? Mature is for you. Like things bigger? Why not take a look at the BBW, Big Dick, or Big Tits categories? Whatever you are looking for in your porn, you can find it, and now many websites are boasting a female friendly porn category to keep us ladies happy.

These videos tend to be quite popular on the websites, giving the ladies a chance to see what it is that we really want when it comes to sex. The problem is that what we want when watching porn isn’t all the same. It’s just like when men go to watch porn. One guy might want nothing more than some hot threesome fun, while another might find watching hentai is their favourite thing to do. So, what exactly is it that women want from porn? Are these the kind of things we can find in the female friendly porn category? Does the category actually do the trick of appealing to women?

What women want

The giant of internet porn, Pornhub, helpfully do regular insights to help us simply using their websites understand just what it is we like to watch the most when it comes to porn. They tell us when a new popular search term pops up, and just what people from around the world want to see the most.

Last year, they decided to look at what it is women really want when it comes to porn, taking a look at the most common search terms and the things that women liked watching more than men. They found that the top three search terms for women were lesbian, threesome, and squirt. A threesome is often a fantasy for women, suggesting that we really want to try it sometimes, while the lesbian and squirt searches suggest that we want to see women getting intense pleasure from someone who knows what to do.

The search term growth between 2014 and 2015 also showed this to be true, with a 589% rise in the number of people searching for “man eating pussy”. So clearly, in the porn for women and female friendly porn categories, we should see a lot of threesome fun with lesbians and squirting all around!

Female friendly porn

When looking in the female friendly porn section of a website, you’ll see a decent number of videos. At a glance, you’ll see a lot of lesbians there, so clearly people are listening to what women have been searching for the most.

However, we also see a lot of things that don’t seem to fit. In the thumbnails for many of the videos, we’ll see a woman with a cock in her mouth. This doesn’t seem to fit the popular search of “man eating pussy” or “squirt” very well, does it?

There’s also a lot of mention of “hairy pussy pounded” and women being “drilled”, and while Pornhub did find that women liked watching a “hard rough fuck”, it wasn’t quite as popular as lesbians or threesome fun.

In fact, many of the categories, while including lesbians, don’t seem to have many threesomes in there, and there is little mention of squirting. So, what exactly is the difference between female friendly porn and other porn?

The difference between female friendly porn and other porn

At a glance, you can see that there is a difference between female friendly porn and other porn categories. The female friendly porn has a lot of lesbian action, although if we wanted to watch lesbians at it, we could just look at the lesbian category. This category has proven to be popular with men and women around the world, so what makes these videos stand out as female friendly?

Romance seems to play a bit part in it. Many of the videos are well lit and shot, ensuring a variety of angles that are agreeable to women while also letting us see every detail. They start out slowly with lots of teasing, and the woman seems to be, at all times, in the throes of ecstasy.

There aren’t many amateur porn videos in the female friendly porn. The amateur porn videos that do make it seem to follow a similar pattern, having the sex going slowly and teasingly. But then, with many of the videos, the action jumps ahead quickly to the sex, which seems just like any other kind of porn sex. What exactly makes these videos fit into the category of female friendly porn we aren’t sure, as you can get these videos in any other category.

Your perfect porn category

Personally, I’ve only looked at the videos in the porn for women categories online to write this blog. The kind of porn I like just isn’t in there. Yes, there are some lesbian videos in there, but you can find them in the lesbian category without having to look through all the women gobbling cock. Want rough sex? There’s usually a category for that, too.

The problem with these categories is that they just don’t explain what female friendly porn actually means. It is really vague, while the rest of the videos are specific. Want to see real people at home having sex? Amateur is for you. Want to watch a porn parody? There’s a category for that, too.

We all like different things, which is why the other categories work well. They have exactly what we are looking for in them, making finding that hot video to keep us busy easy. The “for women” categories just have a lot of videos in, without anything really to make them stand out.

What do you think about the porn for women videos? Do they stand out from the crowd? What would your perfect porn category contain? Let us know in the comment box below or by visiting the Escort Norway forum and joining in the discussion there.
