Ethical porn sites we love ❤️

afterglow (this website!) 

We are an erotic sexual wellness platform combining ethical porn with guided masturbations, partner exercises, and educational content to inspire the unabashed enjoyment of sex. 

Our mission is to inspire great sex. We create porn that is hot enough to masturbate to, yet still realistic enough to be relatable. We make films with new storylines that you might not have seen in porn before and feature diverse bodies, people, and relationship types. Plus, we’re bringing fun back into the conversation. Because sex should be fun!  

Where to start: Watch the afterglow original movie Lip Service with real couple Avery Black and Oliver Davis for an intimate and voyeuristic journey into female pleasure. A celebration of cunnilingus and communication, this is a great place to start in the afterglow library of ethical porn.

Bright Desire 

Created by filmmaker and webmistress Ms. Naughty, Bright Desire features smart, sensual sex featuring real-life couples. The scenes focus mainly on realism, intimacy, and respect. 

Where to start: Watch the talented Bishop Black perform solo in the erotic short film Immersed. Weaving dance and eroticism together, this movie will inspire you to enjoy your body and immerse yourself in pleasure. 

Adult Time

Porn director Bree Mills is the brains behind the master brand and subscription service for high-budget adult videos.

Where to start: Girlcore is an adult web series set in the 1980s that pays homage to the great lesbian pulp stories of the time. This sex series was Adult Time’s first original adult web series, and its most acclaimed. 

CrashPadSeries.com

Based on the movie The Crash Pad, CrashPadSeries.com continues the story of a secret apartment in San Francisco dedicated to hot, queer sex. The premise is simple: there’s an apartment, and if you´re lucky enough to be given the key, you can let yourself in… and let yourself go. 

Queer porn filmmaker Shine Louise Houston casts real life couples, including people of color, a diverse range of body sizes, older queers, and people with disabilities (including neurodivergent). She also founded PinkLabel.tv, indie adult cinema by porn filmmakers with queer, feminist, and ethical perspectives.

Where to start: Start at episode 1 and work your way through the whole series… Warning: You might want to binge watch once you start. 

XConfessions

The crowd-sourced, ethical porn site by feminist filmmaker Erika Lust turns the public’s anonymous fantasies into artistic, short porn films.

Where to start: Watch I’m Obsessed with Owen Gray and you’ll soon see where the obsession comes from. Part documentary, part erotic movie — this film follows a long time Owen Gray fan as she meets—and has sex with—him for the first time.

ForPlay Films

An independent, all-woman production company on a mission to create erotic short films through a feminist gaze. Their movies focus on chemistry, consent, and women’s sexual autonomy.

Deeper

Make Love Not Porn 

A bit different to the other ethical porn sites on this list, MLNP was created by Cindy Gallop and, as the name suggests, it’s all about real life love-making. Featuring real couples sharing their own sex videos, it is a human-created social sex platform. 

Where to start: Watch Hot Summer Day for some solo fun in the garden and a midsummer shower.  

Ifeelmyself 

IFM is a library of female self-pleasure. Designed for anyone interested in an intense study of the female orgasm, the site aims to blur the line between porn and art.

Audio ethical porn sites 🔥

If you prefer to listen rather than watch, check out these audio porn sites… 

Dipsea

Dipsea is an app for short, sexy audio stories that spark your imagination. Using just sound, the app has hundreds of sex stories for you to listen to. Dipsea’s audio stories are highly produced and spoken by voice actors. 

Where to start: Listen to the Off the Record series with actor Sarunas J. Jackson (HBO’s ‘Insecure’ and Freeform’s ‘Good Trouble’). His voice alone is enough to make you weak in the knees.

Quinn 

Quinn is another audio porn platform that delivers sexy stories. It is different from Dipsea in that it feels more explicit and the stories are made by adult creators themselves.  

Where to start: Listen to Morning Fun, one of the stories by Quinn’s most popular voice, Anonyfun. 

Adult industry organizations 💜

If you care about ethical porn and sex workers rights, then you’ll want to follow these organisations. 

Fairporn

An important organization that ensures the rights of everyone in the porn industry and helps people make better choices about the porn they watch.

Free Speech Coalition

The adult industry trade organization, which sets standards for things like COVID and STD testing.

BIPOC AIC 

This is a resource for education and support services to make the adult entertainment industry a safer space for BIPOC.

Free ethical porn

Where can you watch ethical porn for free? As much as we want everyone to be paying for their porn, we know that there are plenty of people, often belonging to marginalized communities, who want to support adult performers and filmmakers but can’t always afford to pay for their porn. 

A 2009 study found that urban areas with high densities of young, college-educated people have the highest rates of paid subscriptions to adult sites. But if you’re not part of this demographic and can’t afford to pay for your porn, you deserve to see ethical porn as much as those who can afford it.

Fortunately some sites feature sliding scale membership rates or options to rent or buy films individually. You can also often sign up to a site’s mailing list to receive a free movie. Sign up to our newsletter to watch a free afterglow movie and get a taste of what we offer.
