Here’s Where to Find the Best Soft Porn for Women

Here’s Where to Find the Best Soft Porn for Women

Whether you’ve had enough of watching hardcore porn, you want a bit more sensuality in your life, or you’re just in the mood for something softer for a change, soft porn for women is popular for a reason. 

What is softcore porn? 

The definition of softcore is quite subjective and it can change depending on who you ask. 

Generally, it is assumed that softcore porn is a gentler (softer) alternative to hardcore pornography. It usually places a greater emphasis on sensuality than other sex films, and in it the performers may spend more time kissing and caressing. 

Often used interchangeably with romantic and sensual porn, softcore porn may not show graphic close ups of penetration but instead focus on the performers faces and emotions.

Softcore porn usually offers a bit more plot than your stereotypical porn and a nicer aesthetic, which is generally seen as more tasteful, cinematic, and sophisticated. Basically, no more bright lighting and white pleather sofas. 

The myth that women only watch soft porn

A side note on this well versed belief. Although many women do watch soft porn, it is a myth that women only watch soft porn. We are constantly told that women prefer romantic, sensual, soft, porn for women. But women account for half of the population, we do not have one shared sexuality and preference for porn. Just like men, we have a wide range in porn taste. While one woman may be into soft porn, another may enjoy rougher and kinkier movies. 

A 2006 study that looked at the effect of porn on genital arousal found that they were equal in men and women (McGill University). Another study from 2004 found that while men responded more to porn that reflected their specific sexuality, women tended to be aroused by a wider range of sexual situations regardless of their sexuality (Northwestern University). 

However, unfortunately porn isn’t always made with women in mind. A lot of mainstream porn is made by the male gaze, for the male gaze. Often with a complete disregard for female pleasure. This results in a lot of women searching for soft porn that usually places more emphasis on foreplay, softer intercourse. 

The myths perpetuated about women not watching porn or only watching softcore aren’t just wrong, they also stop women from feeling empowered to take their sexuality and pleasure into their own hands (literally).  

With that being said, let’s celebrate soft porn for everyone – regardless of your gender. 

Best soft porn for women sites 

Whether you’re just starting to watch porn, you want to watch lengthy oral sex scenes, you’re tired of seeing the male gaze in a lot of mainstream porn, or you just like watching romantic porn, here are some of our favorite soft porn sites for women.

Hysterical Literature 

A video art series by filmmaker Clayton Cubitt, Hysterical Literature shows women sitting at a table reading literature out loud. But the twist is that there are things going on below the table that we can’t see… Namely a hitachi wand secretly pleasuring the reader and being operated by an unseen assistant. It’s fun to watch as the readers get closer to orgasm and their reading becomes disjointed. Start by watching the first video of the series with porn legend Stoya.

Else Cinema 

Else Cinema is the Erika Lust Soft Edition. The site is home to softer versions of most of Erika Lust’s porn films. With less explicit shots, their aim is to explore what sex feels like instead of showing you close-ups of what it looks like. If you want to watch porn, without seeing close up genital shots, this is the site for you.

Four Chambers 

Filmmaker Vex Ashley makes beautifully unique and artistic films that take the viewer on an immersive pleasure journey. Created with carefully curated visual aesthetics, the films feel like more of an artistic endeavour than the pornography you may be used to. The porn on this site is definitely explicit, but if you’re looking for the visuals and cinematic value often attributed to soft porn, this is the site for you.  

Audio porn 

If you want to try an audio experience instead of watching visual porn, audio porn sites and apps such as Dipsea and Quinn offer audio erotica that lets you sex the scene in your imagination. 

Hollywood films with soft porn scenes 

You can also get your soft porn fix on Netflix. Movies and shows such as Sex/Life, Newness, Elite, and Bridgerton, all offer hot sex scenes that may not show you anything explicit but they will certainly inspire your imagination. 

OnlyFans 

OnlyFans is full of content and a lot of it caters for people looking for softer content. You can find everything from clothed but sexualised content, to soft porn images and films, all the way up to more hardcore content. It takes a bit of browsing and research to find people you’re into, but once you’ve found a person or a couple that you like, you can become a paid subscriber and enjoy their content.
