When your goal is to watch feminist porn, the last thing you want is to wade through countless pages of mainstream, male-centric videos. Once in this sea of over-produced and stereotypical content, the hope of striking gold can quickly fade. Unless, that is, you go straight to the source.

“Female-centric content is generally produced more by indie studios who generally have their own sites, and there's a plethora out there depending on what you're looking for,” Alice Vaughn, a sexpert and host of the podcast Two Girls One Mic, tells Bustle.

Unlike mainstream videos, which typically focus on what guys want to see — long blowjobs, certain sex positions, etc. — Vaughn says feminist porn focuses on female pleasure. It also tends to be ethical, which is incredibly important for anyone who wants to partake in the viewing of porn.

“Ultimately, most of the major studios treat their talent with respect, but much like any job, we all do things we don't necessarily want to do for work,” Vaughn says. With feminist and ethical porn, there’s more talk about consent on set, safe sex is often a focus, and the actors more diverse to represent a wide array of interests.

Here, a list of 8 feminist porn sites to check out the next time you’re in the mood.

Feminist porn director Erika Lust’s goal is “to create new waves in adult cinema” by showing “all of the passion, intimacy, love, and lust in sex.” To do so, Lust focuses on the feminist viewpoint, as well as all the senses, meaning Lust Cinema has some seriously sensual material.

Indie Porn Revolution is all about “subversive smut made by ladies, artists, and queers” so you can take your pick from a wide array of content featuring different perspectives. (Finally, a break from the male gaze.)

Many of their videos also focus on safe sex, which isn’t something you see very often in mainstream porn. Yay for making safe sex sexy!

If you’re more into audio than visual, check out Dispea, a female-founded startup that shares sexy stories you can lie back and listen to. The search feature allows you to find something for any mood, whether you’re in bed alone, with a partner, or about to head out on a date.

According to their site, “People in our stories are empowered in their sexual, social, and romantic experiences. Sex is communicative and pleasure doesn’t sound performed. These choices seem simple, but they’re radical, and have implications far beyond the bedroom!”

Since Bellesa is “porn by women,” their films put the focus on what women want to see, feel, and experience during sex — instead of focusing on the typical male perspective. There are lots of videos to peruse, as well as lists upon lists of erotic stories to read, which are submitted by the community.

Bright Desire offers “feminist porn for women and men.” Their goal is to “move beyond the old clichés, boundaries, and negativity of standard, old-style pornography and to offer something fresh, inclusive, and intelligent.” Look through categories such as “straight,” “queer,” couples,” or peruse through a list of performers.

Founded by director Shine Louise Houston, PinkLabel.tv is all about up-and-coming independent adult filmmakers. Houston has said, “I believe there’s a lot of room and need to create adult content that’s real, that’s respectful, and powerful. I think it’s the perfect place to become political. It’s a place where money, sex, media, and ethics converge.”

While feminist porn doesn’t always equate to slow, sensual, and romantic, Froclicme offers exactly that. Started by Anna Richards, it caters to folks who tend to get turned off by mainstream porn. Scroll through their library of videos, audio, and stories to find precisely what strikes your fancy.

Vaughn often recommends OnlyFans, seeing it allows anyone to share their own content with subscribers (or fans) as a way of making money. Specifically, “the content that sex workers are making and selling directly is stuff they're excited to create for their audience,” she says, which is what makes it the most ethical — and feminist — type of porn.
