Why do lesbians like gay porn?

There you have it. Right there, along with “where did we come from?”, “why are we here?”and “why did Looking get cancelled when they’re still airing Keeping up with the Kardashians?”, stands the age old question: why do lesbians like gay porn?

I’m gonna be honest with you, I have done some research before writing this article (yeah you guessed it, that kind of research) and I have to say, I have more questions than answers. It’s extremely difficult to find some data that makes any kind of sense or that isn’t completely arbitrary on this topic, so what you’re about to read is just a collection of my personal thoughts based entirely on my experience, nothing more, nothing less. Consider yourselves warned.

First of all, let me start by saying that I am among those lesbians who do enjoy gay porn, don’t judge. My perception here is that we – and by ‘we’ I mean gay people – are attracted to homosexual relations in general. This statement does make some sense, but it doesn’t explain why gay men don’t seem to care for lesbian porn.

I have found some research suggesting that when it comes to sex men are more visual while women are more mental. It came from a study that showed men and women many different types of porn videos and apparently what happened was that women were aroused to a degree by any type of porn while men tended to follow more their orientation and personal preferences.

Another reason that came to my mind while trying to figure this out is that it might be hot because it’s “wrong”, in a way. After all many people don’t do nor do they have an interest in doing things that they seek out in porn. Some kinks are just abstract. I personally had been trying to ignore this interest by rationalizing it: I’m a woman, I’m into women, why should I care about two dudes getting it on? I mean, there’s virtually nothing for me in the equation.

I’ve heard many people saying that they prefer gay porn because it feels more real, while the women in lesbian videos look more fake and don’t actually seem to be enjoying themselves. I am one of the three lesbians on the planet who actually likes lesbian porn, so I can’t say that’s my reason.

Lastly, and this is a common theory too but I tend to agree with it, gay porn might be more enjoyable because the arousal is visual and there’s more fucking which makes it easier to identify with it from the outside.

As I’ve said earlier on, I have more questions than answers, so I’m really curious to know what you think about it, let me know!

    I’m not fond of most lesbian porn because knowing what real lesbian sex is like, I can’t get past the ridiculousness of some of it. I like the stuff Erika Lust makes, but don’t find Vivid’s porn as appealing. But, most girl-on-girl porn is aimed at men, so it kinda makes sense that it generally appeals more to guys. I’m sure there are plenty of gay men who feel the same way about gay guy porn. But since I’ve never had gay guy sex, it seems more real to me because I don’t have the inside scoop.

      That actually makes perfect sense. Even though I also like girl on girl stuff, I do have to make an active effort not to think about how ridiculous it is at times. It may also be the same reason why many straight women look for lesbian and gay porn instead of straight porn. Thanks for your insight!
