Lesbian porn isn’t exclusively watched by lesbians. Chances are that you’ve probably watched some of it yourself. Many guys wonder what it means when their straight girlfriend watches lesbian porn. Men and women alike both have interests in erotic content, usually choosing things that are different to their normal sex lives. 

Why? Because seeing something different can spice things up. If we only watched or read about things we know then there’d be little excitement. Changing genres when you’re browsing online can create interest in something new or change your perspective.

Some straight women will watch lesbian porn out of sheer curiosity. We’re all curious to know about things we haven’t experienced. Whether it’s watching as a one-off thing or a more regular habit is anyone’s guess. But unless we view new things, we’ve got no way of knowing what it’s like and whether we actually like it.

Girls who watch lesbian porn might find out that they love it. Or could rule it out altogether. But often once their curiosity is picked, they might find themselves wanting to explore more about lesbian sex. Katy Perry kissed a girl and liked it… So what if girlfriend watches lesbian porn?

Why is lesbian porn hot?

It might be an obvious question, but why is lesbian porn hot? Watching two women getting horny is erotic for guys simply because it combines their favourite things. Boobs and vaginas, multiplied by two. If one hot woman having sex is awesome then lesbian porn surely is the next best thing after it.

For men the attraction may be easy to understand. Humans tend to enjoy things that are taboo, lesbian porn totally fits in with that. It might be a natural fantasy to want to picture your girlfriend making out with another woman. So if your girlfriend knows about that, maybe she wants to watch lesbian porn to find out why you love it.

Men often say that they find the idea of two men having sex gross. A lot of straight guys really dislike the idea of seeing a gay kiss on screen because they’re uncomfortable with it. This doesn’t mean that they’re homophobic, but could just reflect their personal preferences. Similarly if we aren’t keen on lesbian scenes, we might not want to watch two women kiss.

However a lot of guys I’ve spoken to who aren’t keen on gay male action, do like lesbian porn. Often I’ve been told that this is because two women getting intimate appears more ‘natural.’ Given women typically are more open in affection than men, i.e they hug female friends more than guys hug each other, it’s little surprise that we might see this as more normal.

But there is a leap from women hugging as friends to becoming scissor sisters. Women are seen as being innately more feminine, our bodies are usually more sexualised in the media than men. So putting two affectionate women together in a sexually charged scene might make lesbian porn seem like a natural conclusion.

Is female pleasure the real reason your girlfriend watches lesbian porn?

Yet I would argue that for men watching lesbian porn, they prefer it because they like women already. Whereas for straight women who watch it, it’s a different scenario. As a girl I can confirm that I appreciate when other women are attractive. I’ve had girl crushes on friends and even teachers in the past.

Personally speaking, I’ve only dated men though I’ve had some lesbian dalliances over the years too. I’d call myself bisexual but the majority of my sexual experience is with men. When I started to watch porn, it was lesbian and straight vanilla. Then I watched more risque stuff and got a bit bored of lesbian porn. Now I usually watch anal, MILF, role play and BDSM.

Lesbian porn captures the taboo element of same sex relationships, embraces the best physical attributes of women and is often more female friendly. By default, the fact that it focuses on female pleasure through lesbian sex can appeal to women more. Even when girls are straight, they might want to imagine themselves being touched in the same way as on screen.

It can be empowering to watch women enjoy sex and take control of their sexuality in porn. Rather than watching male led scenes which often are pitched more towards a male audience, some straight girls love lesbian porn that features women. It’s designed to appeal to women and out of sheer necessity, is more female friendly as a result.

The tone of lesbian porn can often be more intimate, titillating and less aggressive than hetero scenes. While it largely depends on the studio producing the content, straight scenes can come across as more abrupt or perhaps lack direction and scripting. Lesbian scenes are worked to appeal to female interests in developing characters, connection and a different kind of chemistry.

Lesbian experiments

Just because your girlfriend watches lesbian porn doesn’t mean that she’s gay. Or that she necessarily wants to have sex with a woman. But according to the Kinsey scale, nobody is 100% heterosexual.

There’s a wider scope of human sexuality than simply being straight or gay. People are thought to have different levels of sexuality where they might be mostly heterosexual but still have some homosexual leanings. While it also acknowledges that sexuality changes over time.

So just because your girlfriend is in a straight relationship now, doesn’t mean that she won’t be open to watching lesbian porn. Although that might not translate to her wanting to actually have sex with a woman. Or she might want a lesbian experience but not want to date someone.

If your girlfriend loves to watch lesbian porn, it could be that she is straight but is exploring her sexuality. By allowing herself to enjoy the fantasy element of lesbian experiences, she may question if she wants to take it a step further than that.

Should your girlfriend express an interest in lesbian porn, you might get to have a threesome after all! But only if she wants to do so. Have you ever wondered why your girlfriend watches lesbian porn?
