When women watch porn

Plenty of women watch porn, but not as often as men. Also, the porn images that women masturbate to can be different from those that men prefer.

Researchers are finding that women tend to prefer porn GIFs instead of videos. GIFs are brief animations that last only a few seconds and keep repeating. The GIFs are just as explicit as the porn men watch, but because they are so brief, there is less chance they contain material that women find offensive.

It’s also possible that women prefer to watch Tumblr porn, which is often made of stills or GIFs that couples make of their own sex lives.

Regardless of their sexual orientation, a lot of women who watch porn enjoy gay male porn as opposed to mainstream straight porn. They can enjoy watching the sex without having to identify with porn actresses, who they can tell are often faking it, or are mostly there for the pleasure of men.
