Women absolutely do watch X-rated movies, and not just the softcore stuff either. Gomathi Sitharthan at the University of Sydney’s Graduate Program in Sexual Health, one in three women watches porn.
This category had the biggest response, with 68% of the women indicating it is in their top three favorites.
Like with anything in excess, some women can develop addictive habits around watching porn, and I caution anyone experiencing this to reach out and get help.
There are many resources available for people with sexual addictions, and porn addiction is a very real issue in relationships.
There’s a level of cultural affinity associated with the visual it seems, and if women are focusing on the fantasy aspect of porn, it might be easier to connect to the actors who are of the same race/ethnicity or women they’re used to seeing in their daily lives.
I also asked the women to choose their top two reasons for watching these movies.
