Do Women watch as much Porn as men?

Many of us have had disagreements, discussions or at the very least a talk with our SO about porn. It’s a generally viewed trend that men watch porn a lot more than women. In general, society views men as much more sexual than it does women, and it stands to reason straight from that that women watch a lot less porn than men, after all almost all porn is marketed towards men as opposed to women, and even though porn for women has been making splashes in the industry, it’s nowhere near as popular as ‘traditional’ porn made for the male audience.

Now to answer the question, do women watch as much porn as men…well…yes and no. When it comes to length, as in the amount of time they actually spend on a website such as Pornhub, they do, in fact, women tend to spend MORE time on these sites than men, this is largely due to the fact that it takes women considerably longer to finish, at least it is the case on average, than it does your average guy. This leads to them needing to spend more time watching porn to finish off.

However if what you mean by ‘as much’ is ‘how often’ in that case the answer is no, men watch porn more OFTEN than women. This could be due to the fact that on average, men have a slightly higher libido than your average woman does, this obviously leads to an increase in porn-watching frequency. However, this is rather unresearched, so this is to be taken with a grain of salt, as there isn’t enough factual data to support this conclusion, it is very well possible that the genders are equal in this regard as well as the other one.

Now, another oddity of the porn females tend to watch is that it’s mostly girl on girl porn, and no, this doesn’t just refer to gay or bi women, even straight women have a thing for lesbian porn, this could be largely due to it being more ‘female friendly’ than most porn which is made for men. Women are also the main consumers of gay porn, this may not surprise many, as the same stands true vice versa, men watch the most lesbian porn, however it is a bit strange that gay men watch less gay porn than women.

Women also seem to enjoy hardcore sex almost as much as men, with it being the 3rd most searched term when it comes to women, they also enjoy strapons and dildos when it comes to girl on girl porn.

All in all, the way and amount women watch porn differs when compared to each other, however there’s one thing we can say for certain and that is that for all intents and purposes women are more or less equal to men when it comes to interest in porn, and porn marketers are making a large mistake by not noticing this trend and targeting women more with their ads and promotions.

How much do Pornstars man on average?

It’s a burning question in the back of the minds of many. Have you ever wondered how much pornstars get paid to screw their eyes out? Probably not while watching porn itself for quite obvious reasons, however most of us have thought of this at some point in time. We’re here today to answer this precise question, however it’s not quite as simple as it might seem, it’s not enough to just check how much a few random pornstars earn and take the average, this is because different kinds of porn pay differently, as you’ll see soon.

Let’s get the elephant out of the room first, how much does an absolutely average pornstar make? Without taking into consideration gender, sexual preference, number of videos or anything else? Unfortunately, the number doesn’t seem altogether too high for the average performer, with the average pornstar making ‘only’ about $40 000 a year from sex scenes.

Now, that last part might have confused you, what do we mean by from sex scenes? Isn’t that where all a pornstars income comes from? That would make sense wouldn’t it, for a pornstar’s main income to be…starring in porn. Well according to reports, this isn’t quite accurate.

Sabrina Deep, a pornstar herself, wrote in a response on Quora, that a pornstar can earn four to even six figures a year from promotional work. This refers to being a camgirl, attending conventions, doing custom scenes, giving product testimonials, as well as making her own brand. Some of these pornstars also do escort work or strip at a club, the stripping itself can earn upwards of $2000 with the tips not included. All of these activities bring quite a bit of money into the pornstar’s pocket. Unfortunately, this is nearly exclusive to female pornstars, and male performers don’t get anywhere near as much attention.

Now when you take into account total earnings, there must be a split between the genders at the very least, so that is what we’ll do, firstly, male pornstars, in addition to any extra streams on income are estimated to earn about $40 000 a year, while female pornstars have a much, much higher projected average at $120 000 a year, thrice as much as their male counterparts, some of the big names in the female porn industry knock even that out of the water, earning upwards of $200 000 a year.

Now, we’ve talked about how a pornstar’s income ranges quite a bit depending on what exactly they do and how much of it they do, so how about scenes? How much is a pornstar paid per scene on average?

A nude-exclusive solo pays an average of $340 each, this is by far the lowest grossing porn category. Similarly enough, an open leg solo will net the average pornstar $408, while an explicit or insertion solo will earn $476 and $612 respectively, interestingly enough, girl on girl action seems to be paid the same as girl on boy, with both grossing about $1020, with the average male performer getting about 500USD for his work.

How to become an adult perfomer?

“I guess I’ll just do porn” is a thought a lot of us have had, it seems like an easy way out, just have sex in front of a camera? Well, unfortunately that’s not all there is to becoming an adult performer, it’s a more cutthroat, hard to get into business than many of us thought it would be. Getting into porn can be a LOT more difficult than getting a regular job, for both a female, and especially a male performer, there are some requirements which can be quite difficult to complete.

Firstly, the barrier to entry is going to be different depending on if you’re male or female. Due to a majority of pornstars being female we’ll explore that option first.

First, you need to be prepared to work, it’s not as easy as it looks, you’ll need to look at your peak at all times, be ready to be in full makeup whenever you have a shoot. Next you need to look the part, while there’s a market for women of all sizes in porn, that doesn’t mean this market is big or endorsed by big companies. To be a porn star you need to look gorgeous, it helps if you’re a blonde like 1/3 of the industry, however you definitely need to look good and your body needs to be presentable.

Next you need to be prepared to relocate, working in porn requires you to be able to travel at a moment’s notice, you might have a shoot in LA and then a few days later have to fly over to London for another one.

An important step here is to find an agent, you’ll need someone to connect you with companies, just as any other acting job. Next you’ll need to apply for a lot of jobs, be prepared to take rejection at first though.

If you’re a man, this is a whole different ballgame, the first thing to realize is that you’re probably not quite cut out for it, it’s not enough to be a stunning-looking 8-9inch sporting fella. While both of those things are requirements, and while you’ll need an agent just the same way a female actress does, you’ll have much more trouble getting gigs.

Another requirement is you need to be able to maintain an erection for 6-8 hours, now if  that doesn’t sound grueling enough, what if we told you the sex wouldn’t be all that pleasant either? You see male pornstars are required to have some degree of physical fitness partly because they’ll have to fuck in some quite unnatural poses to get the girls to look good, as  in porn, that is essentially the man’s role. Now if you’re ready to be put past that, it’s still quite a hard road ahead, but it’s manageable, you’ll need to cum, and get hard on command, but if you can manage it, you might just have a fruitful career in the porn industry waiting ahead of you.
