These Are The Most Popular Porn Searches For Women, And We Watch A Lot More Lesbian, Gay Male, And Threesome Porn Than Men

Thank god I'm not the only one. Pornhub and Buzzfeed have collaborated on a study of porn preferences, and it turns out, women are watching a lot of it, and exactly what we're watching is pretty interesting. The most popular porn for women is lesbian porn. This doesn't surprise me— as someone who likes sex with men and women I like watching both types of porn, but even some of my most arrow-y straight female friends have told me they prefer lesbian porn to straight. Women are 132 percent more likely to search for lesbian scenes than men.

What did surprise me was that the next most popular was for gay male porn. That's right, "according to the data, women searching for sexually explicit videos on line most want to watch two women engaged in sex — but other than that, they most want to see two men having sex." So girl-on-girl and boy-on boy-ranked highest for female viewers. 

Even more interesting than who is having sex, but how. Inquisitor reports: "Women also show a strong preference for sado-maschistic adult video viewing, with the terms 'rough sex' and 'bondage' both appearing in the top 16 search terms for women, but not for men." I'm not shocked that these are popular search topics for women, but I wouldn't have guessed that it was that much more popular for women than for men. 

The top three searches for men include 'Teen', 'MILF' and 'Mom'. But there was some common ground between the sexes' preferences: Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus ranked in the top 20 for each list, reports Metro.

Females were also way more likely to search for threesome and group sex. In fact "women searched for the category 'Gangbang' 80 percent more often than men, and the term 'Threesome' 75 percent more often." 

This isn't news to Erika Lust, creator of the feminist porn movement, who has been crowdsourcing and asking women to come up with porn ideas in her latest project, XConfession. Salon reports "At XConfessions, Lust has a unique vantage point into what women find sexy, and is both shaping and being shaped by these ideas. The most popular themes are infidelity, group sex and 'the third person,' where a partner invites others to enjoy their significant other." Lust uses these ideas when making her porn, which manages to have a feminist slant without being overly romantic. 

She tells Salon “Just because I am making female-led porn with a feminist mindset doesn’t mean that all the sex has to be white satin sheets and roses. Women like the sex just as dirty as men." Amen to that, sister.
