[TALK LIKE SEX] Women Who Watch Porn

feel comfortable sharing their preferences with a partner tend to prefer scenes featuring BDSM/kink, gay male sex and taboo situations (incest, rape fantasies, etc).

Women are increasingly taking ownership of their sexuality and pleasure. They’re no longer waiting for sex to be done to them; they are making it happen for them in ways that not only get them off but empower them. Like with anything in excess, some women can develop addictive habits around watching porn, and I caution anyone experiencing this to reach out and get help. There are many resources available for people with sexual addictions, and porn addiction is a very real issue in relationships.

That said, women shouldn’t feel like they’re alone in their porn watching or in their preferences. No matter the scene or the kink, there are other women out there enjoying the view just the same and getting off. Remember to be safe, be aware, and above all feel free to explore the various cinematic fantasies that might excite you.
