Porn for the People

Late at night, hands under the covers, incognito browser at the ready… Many of us are extremely familiar with this common ritual of self pleasure. For some, watching porn may be something we feel embarrassed or ashamed of. But Googling risque content, whether it’s for the first time out of curiosity or for the 10th time that week to help get your rocks off, is normal. Porn helps us not only get turned on in the moment, but it can be a real aid in discovering our likes and dislikes, exploring our sexuality and understanding all the different kinds of sex there are to be had.

That being said, the porn industry is a complicated one. More often than not, the porn we consume from common sites (you know the one) is unrealistic, and can give us a toxic idea of how sex should be - how we should look, how our partners should look, and what happens during sex. Ethical porn is something a lot of people aren’t aware of (we hear you asking ‘how can any porn be ethical?’) and we often see the same videos focusing on the male gaze and their pleasure. We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way - let’s explore the world of porn for the people…


Ethical Porn

Without really knowing it, you may be watching unethical porn - videos where the sex workers are not properly being compensated for their work, videos or pictures that have been released without their knowledge or consent, even content that depicts drugged or underage people. But how do you differentiate between what is ethical and what is not? Ethical porn companies, also known as feminist or fairtrade porn, ensure that workers are paid properly and fairly, and treated with respect, as you would expect in a regular 9-5.

Aside from these points, ethical porn can be more enjoyable in the sense that it is real, depicting a diverse range of body types, queer relationships and more focus on female pleasure. If you care about the welfare of performers (which you should, sex work is real work) and want to watch something more relatable, it’s definitely worth paying for.

Paying for porn from independent creators is a good indication that it is ethical - for example, subscribing to an OnlyFans account. These creators are making content on their own terms, and setting their own prices. They often provide a more personable service, offering requests and messaging with their subscribers. 

There is a lot of porn out there - A LOT. We understand that when you’re in the moment, ready to get down and dirty, you don’t want to spend 10 minutes researching for the right porn. That’s why we have put together a list of some of the best ethical porn sites for you, so that you can wank without worry:


    Porn for Female Pleasure

    Who else is sick of the male gaze being the focus of every piece of porn you see? We know we are. It seems as though the ultimate goal and only focus is to get that all important money shot, with no thought given to the pleasure of those with vaginas. Sure, you could scour the hub in search of a video that does focus on female orgasms and pleasure, but isn’t it much easier to just pay for a site that is full of content where the sole purpose is to make people with p*ssies feel good?

    It’s not just for the females! People with penises can get just as much enjoyment out of this porn - you might even learn some valuable tips. Here are some of our favourite porn sites for females:

       

      Watch, Read, Listen, Chat

      Porn isn’t just about watching video after video of penetration. Porn comes in many different formats, and it’s great to explore different types of porn to find what gets you going the most. Are you into your books? Try some erotic literature! Love dirty talk? Audio porn could be just what you need to get off. Enjoy a more personal approach? Check out chat rooms and cam stars for a more interactive experience.

      The point is, we shouldn’t limit ourselves to what we consider the norm. Changing things up is what keeps our sex lives exciting, and stimulating that part of our brain that says ‘oh god, yes’ when something turns us on. Remember, our most important sexual organ is the brain! Keep it interested in the content your consuming to get the most out of your morning, afternoon or evening self-pleasure sesh. 

      Not sure where to start? We’ve got you - here are some great sites with alternative formats to video, including audio porn and erotica


        If you’ve made it through this blog without having to switch tabs to one of the wonderful sites we have recommended, we salute you - that’s some serious self control. Now, go grab your favourite toy (or treat yourself to a new one over on our shop) and indulge…
