Pornography, Woman, and Men

Men often wonder why their wives and girlfriends are not into pornography the way that they are.  In fact, porn and the viewing of it, causes untold amounts of tension and animosity in relationships.  Many men just can’t understand why, in general, women are not as into porn as men are.  The fact of the matter is that there are a lot of fundamental differences between men and women that make porn more appealing for men than women.

One reason that women generally don’t like porn as much as men is because pornography is very visual.  Men are visually stimulated and aroused but women are usually stimulated sexually more in emotional and mental ways than in visual ways.  The result is that porn alone isn’t enough to arouse most women, instead they crave the intimacy between them and their partner rather than watching something on a television or computer screen.

Another reason that women aren’t as into porn is that when they watch interactions between men and women, they want them to be meaningful.  When you watch porn the idea is not to have great acting or highly involved plots, but this is what women want.  The end result is that women generally are just not very accepting of the very contrived plots that are generally found in pornography.  The contrived nature of these plots can even be a turn off for women because they are lacking in substance.

Many women have a view of porn being degrading to women.  While this may or may not be true, their contention is that porn is actually a mainstream way in which women are used and exploited and they cannot derive any sexual enjoyment from watching women being exploited and allowing themselves to be exploited in this way for a paycheck. 

Some women just feel that watching porn will cast them in a negative light.  They have the idea that watching pornography is somehow inappropriate and is not something that they should be doing.  So, even if they would have an interest or could be turned on by it, their perceptions of people who do watch porn keep them from enjoying it or even attempting to enjoy it.

As you can see, there are a lot of different reasons that women don’t like porn as much as men.  This is not to say that there are not any women who like porn, the fact of the matter is that some women are very open to it and will engage in the watching of porn with the men in their lives.  If you have a woman who likes porn, consider yourself lucky, because most women just aren’t that into it!
