Women prefer gay porn to straight female friendly erotica

In collaboration with BuzzFeed, porn search engine Pornhub has published a study examining data on users' viewing habits, with a specific focus on what women are looking for.

The chart below shows the top 16 most-viewed categories of porn on Pornhub.

Note that women seem to prefer lesbian and gay male porn above all other types of movies, which tells me that women are more queer and gender bending than most people tend to believe.

There is a a thriving industry for TG erotica for women, labelled as yaoi comics, M/M romances and slash fan fiction, and I suspect this enthusiasm may be partly explained by women's general love for same sex erotica. It could be that for many women TG fiction -- in the wide sense of the term -- is something common and normal.

There is admittedly less focus on transformations in these genres compared to male to female TG fiction, but that might be because becoming a man for a woman is less stigmatizing than a man becoming a woman. So the women just jump the good stuff: Having steamy sex as a man. Men need to be forced into gender bending, which makes the change itself erotically charged.

I am sure experts will tell you that none of this makes these women gender benders. They are just more into "tenderness" than the male audience, hence the preference for lesbian and gay porn. They clearly haven't seen any gay porn.

The interesting question should be: Given that women love both lesbian and gay porn, why aren't there more straight men watching gay porn? Are they conditioned not to?

 Huffington Post has more about the study.
