Porn for Women: 24 Feminist Porn Sites You’ll Really, Really Enjoy

There’s no shortage of women who watch porn, but it often feels impossible to find porn for women. These days there is (praise be) a ton of feminist porn out there that celebrates the female orgasm, but it can sometimes take a bit of legwork to discover. On a lot of free sites, it feels as if you have to wade through hardcore video after video (and pop-up after pop-up) of people degrading, insulting, and violating women before you can find something arousing and empowering.

Finding hot masturbation material or fodder for favorite foreplay tips should not come at the cost of feeling like an object (unless that is specifically what you’re looking for, a valid turn-on that can still be experienced in a feminist way). Sex should be a liberating experience from start to finish, which is why we need porn sites for women that actively provide inclusive, sexy, ethical content to enjoy. And not only do they exist—but you can even customize your experience. Women’s erotica can be watched, read, or even listened to.

“The idea of ‘feminist porn’ and creators who were labeled with that phrase, such as Erika Lust, have already reshaped mainstream pornography,” says Jessica Stoya, content creator and former adult performer. “Sure, you’ll still find things to critique, and [popular porn site] Brazzers still pumps out weirdly overacted films about stepsiblings, but top directors today include Kayden Kross, Julia Grandi, the aforementioned Erika Lust, and Bree Mills. All women, all in charge of their own productions, and all consistently invested in building a more ethical process.”

Much of the best porn for women isn’t free, but keep in mind that a lot of free porn isn’t produced ethically, which is why they often deal with content removal. Paying for women’s porn is not only going to be safer for your computer, but it makes the entire industry more woman-friendly—for the performers and the viewers. “Money talks, and the proliferation of women buying porn has led to more and more feminist porn,” says porn performer Cherie DeVille. “Like the feminist movement, feminist porn has many definitions. To me, it’s porn made for the female gaze. It’s porn women want to get off to.”

Here are some legitimate porn sites for women to check out if you’re looking for mutually respectful sex—and lots of content to help get you off.

1. Make Love Not Porn

Cindy Gallop created this site to show real sex among real people, not porn stars doing things that don’t represent how sex happens IRL. Couples submit videos of themselves having sex—“real-world sex in all its glorious, silly, beautiful, messy, reassuring humanness.” You can select from a few different plans ranging from $10 to $50 per month, depending on how many videos you’d like, and half of the money will go to the stars themselves. “We are not porn—porn is performance (often an exceedingly delicious performance, but a performance nonetheless),” its website reads. “We are not ‘amateur’—a label that implies that the only people doing it right are the professionals and the rest of us are bumbling idiots. (Honey, please.)” We love that attitude. And these vids.

2. The Crash Pad

This award-winning queer porn site provides “real dyke porn, lesbians, femme on femme, boi, stud, genderqueer and trans-masculine performers, transwomen, transmen, queer men and women engaging in authentic queer sexuality.” You can become a member (which lets you stream all the videos) for $9.99 to $25 a month.

3. Lust Cinema

Erika Lust, a filmmaker who explained why porn can be feminist in this great TED Talk, gives us porn videos—made largely by female directors—that show all of the passion, “intimacy, love, and lust in sex,” where “the feminine POV is vital, the aesthetic is a pleasure to all of the senses, and eroticism and innovation are celebrated.” She also accepts viewer “confessions,” which she turns into videos for her XConfessions series. You can witness Lust’s captivating work for $9.95 to $24.95 a month.

4. Lady Cheeky

Instead of your standard video compilation format, this site features GIFs for quick, free consumption of “palpable desire, unbridled passion, and body-positive eroticism.” It also offers sex-toy reviews, an NSFW coloring book, and other resources from sex educator Elle Chase.

5. Dane Jones

The “female-friendly” sections of mainstream porn sites are often just proof of how low our standards are. Any porn in which a woman feels a modicum of genuine pleasure tends to get categorized this way, even when the images (and blow jobs) are clearly geared toward straight men. But Dane Jones’s videos are some of the best options you’ll find under this category. They’re sensual, romantic, and focused on the women involved (though they have shots that linger on the men’s bodies as well). You can become a member for $9.16 to $29.99 a month, but many videos are free.

6. Indie Porn Revolution

The women-run Indie Porn Revolution—formerly known as nofauxxx.com—is committed to involving a diverse array of actors, showing safe sex (a rarity in porn), and casting frequently typecast people in nonstereotypical roles. Membership is around $20 to $30 a month.

7. Bright Desire

Ms. Naughty, the filmmaker behind this production company, calls it “a deliberate attempt to show all the good stuff that we love about sex—intimacy, laughter, connection, and real pleasure.” The videos feature the silly, awkward side of sex as well as the hot and steamy side. The camera zooms in on people of all different genders and body types, and the scenes focus on the buildup of sexual tension couples experience before sex, so you can feel the heat rising. To see beyond the previews, you have to pay $22.95 for the first month and then $9.95 a month after that.

8. Sounds of Pleasure

Listen to enough fake porn moans and you can start to wonder what real people actually sound like when they’re masturbating or having sex. Fortunately, this site clears all that up. For no cost at all, you can listen to dozens of audio recordings of masturbation sessions. Some include dirty talk aimed at pleasing the listener, while others include entertaining attempts to count backward from 100 to 0.

9. Good Vibrations After Dark

The feminist sex-toy store Good Vibrations makes an effort to cater to women’s diverse desires, and its video collection is no exception. You can search specifically for feminist porn, women-directed porn movies, and even sex-ed guides—something very needed in a world where way too many people learn everything they know from some pretty unrealistic porn. You can pay per minute or rent each video for $4 to $15.

10. Bellesa

At Bellesa, women can easily access sexual content that is true to how they see themselves—as subjects of pleasure, not objects of conquest. It’s not just about the porn, though. This is a platform aimed at helping women fulfill their desires and engage in a community with other like-minded women looking to freely express their sexuality on the internet. Check out the erotic stories and sex-ed articles, shop for sex toys on their site, or simply browse through the selection of women-friendly porn, whether you’re looking for something sensual, passionate, or, dare we say, even a little rough. A lot of the content is free, and you can get full streaming access for $10 to $20 a month.

11. Dipsea

This female-founded app is aimed at creating elevated feminist audio—think Audible for erotica—that allows you to find a sexy story for whatever situation you’re in. You can search for audio porn to listen to alone in bed for a solo session; stories perfect to listen to before a date to get you into a flirty headspace; even erotic stories appropriate for listening to on your commute home to help you switch off from a day at the office. Dipsea’s stories feature a broad range of preferences, perspectives, and interests, and they’re fun, safe, and full of enthusiastic content that prioritizes female pleasure. You can subscribe for $70 per year, which is less than $6 a month.

12. FrolicMe

This site’s founder, Anna Richards, is also the director of the films, which span a wide range including queer and heterosexual couples, group sex, and masturbation. Not only that, but there’s a collection of erotic stories based on the videos, so you can enjoy them in multiple formats. The site also includes erotic audio recordings, image collections that each tell a story, and a magazine full of information about sexuality. You get access to all this for $15.05 per month or $63 per year.

13. r/chickflixxx

Reddit isn’t always the friendliest place for women, but on the r/chickflixxx subreddit, you can find women posting their favorite female-friendly porn. You can even make requests. If your tastes are more specific or you’re looking for a particular kind of video, it may just be easier to ask your fellow sexperts here instead of browsing for hours. You are most definitely welcome.

14. A Four Chambered Heart

For porn on the artistic side (yes, it’s a thing and it’s great), check out the photography and short films on A Four Chambered Heart. Created by porn performer and director Vex Ashley, the site favors queer and woman-centered content. Unsurprisingly, some of the stills are pretty enough to hang up on your walls—if you’re not too busy getting off to them, that is. You can unlock the videos for $9 per month.

15. Literotica

Images and audio are great, but sometimes there’s nothing better than reading some good old-fashioned erotica. Literotica isn’t your grandma’s scandalous paperback, however. The free resource provides some of the hottest erotic fiction and fantasy on the internet from a variety of authors and points of view. Its standards for stories are high, so you can be sure that the stories featured here are, ahem, quite useful.

16. Adult Time

Niche websites are lovely, but sometimes you’re not looking for one specific thing. At $12 to $20 a month, Adult Time provides an extensive catalog of adult films for all kinds of kinks and fetishes. The site, founded by Bree Mills, also emphasizes an affirming experience for trans women in its erotica videos. In 2020, Adult Time announced the removal of “transphobic terminologies” across its 50,000-video portfolio. Plus, the company’s TikTok features behind-the-scenes looks at consent discussions between its performers, because nothing’s hotter than feeling safe.

17. Ersties

This erotic film site, based in Berlin, has a “porn for her” mission—it’s porn by women for women. In lieu of actors, Ersties videos feature real women celebrating their sexuality. “No fakes, no pretenses,” the site proclaims. “This is real sex on camera.” An annual membership is $132, so roughly $11 a month, but shorter membership options are available if you want to test it out first.

18. Afterglow

Watching porn with a partner is a great way to explore each other’s turn-ons, but the unrealistic positions or situations that often arise can be more confusing than they are arousing. Sexual-wellness site Afterglow provides “porn you can learn from,” in the words of founder Lilly Sparks. Afterglow encourages you to take pleasure into your own hands, whether you’re looking for ways to increase your comfort in the bedroom, curious about trying anal sex for the first time, or are wondering things like, “What is an orgasm, anyway?” You can join for $10 per month or $69 per year.

Ask Dr. Nan

In *Glamour*'s column Ask Dr. Nan, a sex therapist turned neuroscientist answers all of your burning questions about sex and relationships.

19. Quinn

If audio erotica does it for you, try Quinn. CEO Caroline Spiegel founded the app after feeling frustrated with the amount of degrading content she saw on major sites like Pornhub. Quinn’s audio scenarios fit whatever spice level you’re in the mood for—romantic porn, morning sex, and dirty talk among them. By removing the oft-objectifying visual element, audio erotica allows you to focus on the fantasy. Plus, there are more than 50 guided masturbation and fingering audios for when you want to take the guesswork out of your me time. A monthly subscription costs $3 to $5.

20. Cheex

When was the last time you saw a porno described as glossy? Cheex provides erotic films that will empower and inspire you to explore the many different sides of pleasure. For $10 a month, you can watch the site’s soft-porn films just for fun or check out educational tutorials on tantric sex, BDSM, and different sex positions.

21. Aorta Films

“Lusty, opulent, glorious, fuckery.” What more could one ask for? Aorta’s catalog is full of indie, experimental, and ethical films that cater to a queer audience. You can rent them individually for $4 or get a membership for $8 to $19 per month. The award-winning trans and queer-run studio delivers erotica that celebrates kink and “destabilizing pleasure.” Yes, please.

22. ForPlay Films

This award-winning site features artistic, creative, concept-driven films. One takes place between a lost wanderer and a spirit in a haunted house; another uses comic book graphics to tell the story of two women realizing they may be more than friends. The site also contains educational videos, including an explicit guide to pleasing people with vulvas (complete with a demonstration) and a humorous talk on foreplay by a character dressed as Sigmund Freud. Shot by the site’s female founder, Inka Winter, the videos are equal parts sensual, passionate, and (at times) romantic. Memberships are $10 per month.

23. Lustery

Real couples upload videos of themselves to this site, so viewers can follow their love stories while also getting access to hot scenes. The videos are realistic—similar to amateur porn, except many of the stars are seasoned experts—and the site also includes a magazine full of erotica and sex advice. There’s some free content, plus plans ranging from $11 to $35 a month.

24. Bloom

With an extensive library of erotic audio stories, educational recordings, and even chatbots that will sext with you, this is not your ordinary audio erotica site. Bloom’s “wellness guides” give you ideas and step-by-step instructions for how to self-pleasure or connect with a partner, and its chatbots are based on real characters from the site’s stories. You can also download Bloom as an app on your phone, and many of the features are free—though you can gain access to all of them for $5 to $8 per month.
