I think many of you out there might be thinking really, are women watching porn? And I can tell you the answer is yes. Although it's certainly not in the numbers that men are looking at porn. It's true that a lot of women equally when they're doing self-exploration, curious about what turns them on, they sometimes look to erotica and that can be erotic stories. But it can also be visual images that just gives a sense of what might be their turn on. It's also true women tend to be a little different and so there are porn that is or erotica that is really targeted to them. Female directors like Candi Royal for instance or Jimmy Waxman. So, I think if you are a woman out there wondering what if anything porn has for you is to realize it can be really soft like what you might air on Cinemax. Sometimes it's called Cinemax. Or l really soft porn movies like 9 1/2 weeks where there are really erotic themes portrayed on screen or looking online to see what is anything feels like it's a good fit for you. It's certainly true I think many more women are drawn to erotic stories than actually looking at visual images. So, there is part of that discrepancy but overall I think we just need to realize that yes, both men and women look at porn. And if you're in a relationship, you just start by asking that question. Have you ever looked at porn and if so, is there anything that you like about it. Or if you've ever read erotica and do you find that a turn on or do you find that stimulating. Because it could be something that you could continue to enjoy on your own or it could be something that from time to time you might want to bring into your partners experience.
