Do Girls Watch Porn?

Maybe you’re thinking about watching porn, but you’re not sure if it’s normal. Maybe you watch porn, and are curious if other girls do. Or maybe you just wanna know: do girls watch porn?

Do girls watch porn?

The answer is absolutely, unequivocally yes. Girls and women watch porn. In fact, a 2017 study found that 73% of women had watched porn in the past six months.

Why do girls watch porn?

The most common answer is simple. Most women watch porn because it helps them get aroused.

And it works. Watching porn is correlated with increased sexual satisfaction, more pleasure during sex, and more orgasms. (If you didn’t know, now you know: girls want orgasms, too. Girls experience arousal too. And girls also want to be sexually satisfied.) 💅🏽

Porn also improves girls’ partnered sex lives and relationship satisfaction. Girls who watch porn report improved communication during partnered sex. Plus, girls who watch porn that features clitoral self-stimulation are more likely to stimulate their own clitoris during sex. Clitoral self-stimulation improves orgasm consistency.

To recap: girls watch porn to get aroused, feel pleasure (solo and with partners), and have more consistent orgasms.

What kind of porn do girls like?

This is a super common question, and there’s no one answer. Girls aren’t all the same!

There’s a misconception that girls only like to watch soft-core, intimate porn. And while lots of girls and women do love a soft, slow, cinematic porn film, lots of girls also like to watch rough sex, kinky scenes, and BDSM.

It’s no surprise that we’re not taught a wide variety of preferences and desires is normal. So many women and girls are shamed for sexuality in general, but let’s be clear: whatever your porn preferences are, you have nothing to be ashamed of.

Note that some girls watch porn to fantasize, to get out of their heads, or to escape. Just because a girl is into something on-screen doesn’t mean she’s interested in bringing it into the bedroom or ever trying it IRL. Fantasy is totally healthy.

Female pleasure in porn

Lots of girls enjoy watching porn where female pleasure is centered. That can mean a lot of things.

Sometimes, it looks like a girl on-screen naming exactly what she wants while her man obeys her every command. Other times, it looks like watching a girl relinquish control and enter a world of submissive kink.

There’s not one type of female pleasure or one sex act that all girls like. It’s safe to say that female pleasure is hot, no matter what type of pleasure.

Sexual diversity in porn

It’s also really common for girls to watch porn featuring a variety of sexualities and types of couples. Girls watch lesbian porn, threesomes, queer porn, gang bangs, and heterosexual porn. Some girls watch porn to explore parts of their sexual identity, and some girls watch porn just to get off.

It’s totally normal for girls to watch porn that turns them on, whether they’re in a relationship or not.

Porn can help people fulfill specific sexual needs, learn new things (especially if they’re watching watching eduporn), and be part of a healthy self-pleasure routine. If your partner watches porn and you’re curious about why, you can totally ask if they’re comfortable talking about it. This can lead to a fun, sexy conversation, and you might even end up deciding to watch together.

One more time for the people in the back: it’s normal for girls to watch porn, to explore different types of porn, to look at different sex acts, and to have different sexualities. Girls’ pleasure isn’t all the same. Girls’ porn isn’t all the same.

And in case you need the affirmation: whatever you like is hot AF.

Where to find porn for girls

With more and more women behind the cameras these days, there are more options than ever to find porn for girls and women. (Again, women and girls aren’t all the same, but having more women behind the camera means having more representations of authentic female pleasure.)

If you’re ready to watch, you can check out porn for women by women right here on afterglow. Actors are always 18+, treated with respect, and paid fairly for their work. If you’re new to porn and curious where to start, we’ve even got a quiz to help you find a film you’ll love.

We also recommend PinkLabel TV for hot indie porn, Royal Fetish Films for porn produced by BIPOC performers, Lustery for real-life couples, and Hardwerk for sexy gang bangs.

There’s no one place to find porn for girls, but if you start with an ethical porn site featuring porn by women, it’s hard to go wrong.

So, what’s with the bad rap?

Historically, the porn industry hasn’t always done a great job centering female pleasure or treating performers fairly (if you’re curious to learn more, we’ve got an ethical porn guide that dives into the details). But a big part of the reason porn has a negative reputation is because of purity culture.

Now that we’re living in times where sex is seen in a more positive light, lots of women and girls and revisiting their relationships with porn. It’s totally possible to have a positive, healthy, and  sexy relationship with porn.

In fact, we know from research that most women who watch porn experience no negative consequences (and, if you recall from earlier, more orgasms).

Ready to watch?

Get it, girl. Whether you already watch porn, are brand new to porn, or are looking for something that’ll please your partner, there’s a sexy film for you. You deserve all the pleasure in the world.
