Why Gay Porn Is Hot: A Woman’s Perspective

Okay. So I know I sounded like a sex maniac when I asked my Facebook girl-friends about whether or not they find gay porn as something to like. Well, most of my friends who responded said they do not like it for a myriad of reasons, but primarily because they do not find two men sticking each other’s cock in each other’s rectum as appealing. I do not find that offensive. I mean, straight sex in a gay man’s perspective can be nauseous, too. Like, when the man goes down on the woman and starts thrusting his tongue in her bacteria-filled cavity… such an awful sight. But I understand that arousal during sex overrides disgust.

I guess it’s a matter of preference. For example, I do not find sex between two bears as arousing while I know some people who are turned on by it. It’s the same thing. There are lots of girls who will not find gay porn as arousing as boys going gaga over lesbian porn. But still, there are women who find intercourse between two men as ‘interesting’ and sexy. In the course of my pseudo-research, I stumbled upon Gwen B on Yahoo! Answers and her response on why some girls tend to like gay porn. Here goes:

1

1. The men are more attractive and come in more varieties (twinks, bears, musclemen, etc.) than they do in straight porn.

2. The orgasms are real (versus so many fake female ones). Gay male porn is just so passionate.

3. It’s still kind of taboo in some way, and that adds to its hotness.

4. It doesn’t have the annoying, often violent, male chauvinistic aspect that straight porn has, where women’s pleasure isn’t given a thought and men treat the ladies like pieces of garbage existing for their pleasure only, to be used and abused. Unless specifically S/M, gay porn scenes are beautifully egalitarian.

5. Two are better than one! It’s simple: one guy is hot, two guys, even better!

6. It’s very exotic. I know about straight sex, and lesbian sex, but few women get invited into the mysterious realm of gay male sex. It’s that sort of voyeurism into another world that makes gay porn so hot for me and many women, and lesbian porn for straight men.

7. From what I can tell, a lot of women, particularly younger women, are following this trend. Yaoi (Japanese gay male comics and cartoons) is targeted to be sold at straight women, and they are the primary consumers. The writers of slash fan fiction (stories that pair male characters from popular books, TV shows, and movies, often in pornographic couplings) are overwhelmingly straight young (13-25) girls, which is a gigantic phenomenon. More and more erotic romance stories feature male-male intimacy along with their hero-heroine lovestory (see Emma Holly). And faghags have always known the erotic component of gay or bisexual men.
