So, are you asking if men like visual porn better than women like visual porn, or are you asking whether men like visual porn better than they like having sex with women?

YES, men definitely like to watch visual pornography more than women do. I think that women enjoy reading pornography, but still probably less than men enjoy reading pornography (doesn't that just sound so quaint, men who actually READ porn, instead of watching horrible porn videos?)

I think that there are many men who prefer watching visual pornography to engaging in sexual activity with real women! It's a lot of effort and trouble to establish a connection with a real live woman. Unless of course you go find and pay a prostitute.

And guys, just in case you didn't know, most women are not turned on sexually by the usual subject matter portrayed in porn videos. And women can tell when a guy they are with has gotten his ideas about sex from watching porn, instead of from actual exploration in the bedroom with a real, live, human female.

Did I say all women?

What subject matter do women not like in visual porn?

Yeah, "Outlander" is doing a grand job of some eye-candy for women. So much so, DH is cringing watching it, LOL! Never had any interest in "50 Shades".

I've often wondered if porn was classier and actually had a quality plot, would we girls like it better? One I was sort of coerced into watching was really humorous and I did get a kick out of some of it. ("Donna" somebody)

But I too, get distracted by details so the overall effect is lost....

But don't some porn movies especially from the 90s and 80s had quality plots, if you look for them? And yes all my women friends love Outlander lol.

You see advertisements for Asian or Russian women wanting men, but you do not see advertisements for Asian or Russian men wanting women, or any men wanting women for that matter. Maybe if you go into some special sites you will, but the keywords are special sites, compared to just any sites where they have to show sex advertisements in order to host video content.

So I am wondering if for some reason, porn is just more popular with heterosexual men compared to other genders or sexual orientations, and why is that?
Ummm...what sites are you visiting where you get random ads for porn? I don't seem to have that problem.

Sites I want to watch foreign films on that are not available in North America. You have to go to whatever site has them if you want to watch them and they have porn advertisements before the movie starts.

It was said that women prefer books more but would they prefer visual movies, if they were tailored and marketed to them?
You are not understanding what I was trying to say, and that's fine, my grammar did make it easily misinterpreted (I read it several times like "did I say that right?")

The porn companies create and market porn to men, because they know that is an audience that is eager to buy it.

They do not waste as much in terms of resources, marketing it to women, because they know that women who like porn, are a smaller demographic.

(I am talking your typical video porn here.)

It's not that women don't like it BECAUSE the companies haven't made it in a pink box with a complimentary nail polish and a ribbon for us. It's not that if they tried harder they could MAKE women like it. We just don't. So why would they bother? Does that make any sense now? They aren't missing out on us. We don't want the product no matter if there's a picture of a guy on the front or not.

Now you create a show with a sizzling romance plot and good production values and believable acting, throw in some hot accents and kilts, and there's your market for the ladies.

THAT is what more women like. Just watching people bang, sorry, at best it bores me. (And again yes I know some women enjoy porn. But I think that despite there being some who do, and some who might if they tried...there are plenty of us who give it a shot and it's just not that interesting to us. I don't think that women are as visually stimulated like that, as men are.)

Dude. Are you serious right now asking this here? Did you forget that this forum is supposed to be PG-13ish? Did you forget that we have moderators? Did you think you were somewhere else?

About as far as I'll go in even trying to kinda answer this is...most of it? The bouncey bouncey pokey pokey, it's boring as hell? Besides which, I know lots of women who don't have any interest in sex with another person unless they FEEL some emotional connection there. I personally don't have any interest in sex with another person if we don't have an exciting conversation and connect intellectually. None of that is possible with porn. At least with something like Outlander, or a story in a book, you can get into the thoughts and feels of those involved a bit. It's like they are alive, people, not just machine parts moving back and forth spouting off the occasional pre-programmed line and finishing on command like someone pushed a button.

Does any of that make any sense? I hope?

Yeah that makes sense. Sorry if I was asking too graphic of specifics.

I just thought that they would want to appeal to a more female audience as well even if it meant making story that is more like Outlander.

I mean Hollywood makes movies that are marketed towards men, but they also make movies that are marketed towards women as well.

There are guy movies and there are "chick flicks", as the popular term goes, so I thought that the porn industry would also want to make their own "porn chick flicks" out of the interest of making more money cause they have more types of audiences who will pay then.
