Do you watch porn?

I've been reading a convo on Twitter where several people are claiming - including a woman - that women watch porn as well as men. My first reaction is, this isn't true. Sure, I've watched it from time to time, usually in the company of men, but it's so boring, so divorced from real sex/real bodies, that I'd almost rather do anything else.

Am I wrong? I realise I'm asking a group of women who are probably going to have a more cynical view of pornography, but I'm having a hard time believing women have a porn habit even remotely comparable to men's.

I watch it occasionally. Certainly not often enough to call a habit though

I haven't in a long time but I have watched it on my own without DH in the past, yes.

No I don’t watch it

In my friendship group i can only think of one woman who has ever said she has

That’s obviously not to say that none of them are watching 😀 just they are keeping it awfully quiet (pretty much all between 45 and 55 years of age...no idea if that’s relevant)

No.

Many women do however. Unfortunately which ever way you try and dress it up the majority of porn produced will have harmed women and girls in the process. But many will be ok with this.

All of my girly circle do and so do I. I don't think it's that unusual

Itsyoouu Thu 18-Feb-21 19:34:44

Yes occasionally I do.

AndreaMartelsCoat Thu 18-Feb-21 19:34:59

Good god no.

No. not because it wouldn't turn me on - it might - but because of the industry itself. I have no problem reading something pornographic.

Charley50 Thu 18-Feb-21 19:36:07

No I don't. Never die apart from a couple of times.

Xoxoxoxoxoxox Thu 18-Feb-21 19:36:18

Did, not die blush

Thingybob Thu 18-Feb-21 19:37:23

No and wouldn't be with a partner who watches it.

I used to watch it when I was younger. I read an article talking about exploitation and the author described it as "filmed prostitution." It was a wake up call for me and I haven't watched it since.

I read erotica now and feel far more comfortable doing it.

ShulamithFirestone Thu 18-Feb-21 19:39:40

Not since my daughter was born. The idea of watching it leaves me cold now.

No, find it distressing.

Yes but only male on male porn as woman in porn makes me 🤢
