Fox News: More Women Are Consuming Porn

NEW YORK — FoxNews.com's sex columnist Yvonne Fulbright explored women's mixed feelings about adult entertainment in a new column that claims porn's popularity is expanding across gender lines.

In a surprising display of even-handedness, Fulbright criticized other news outlets for reporting on the supposed rise of popularity among women without citing hard evidence to back up their claims.

"Where is the good study to support [this idea]?" she said while questioning one colleague who said that women's appetite for adult was growing. Fulbright also said that most studies fail to offer a solid definition of porn, often conflating it with other content.

"People tend to have distinct definitions for what constitutes porn versus erotica, which can influence data," she said.

That said, Fulbright did acknowledge a general rise in acceptance of porn among women, she also noted the different reaction that the content gets from the two sexes.

"Research at the University of Amsterdam revealed that even though women’s bodies respond similarly to porn as men's, such as increased blood flow to the genitals, she feels differently while viewing his sensory delights. Women have reported feeling disgusted, annoyed, repulsed, and generally not turned on by porn made for him," Fulbright said.

That means that couples looking to share the fun should look for content produced and directed by women.

"Films that turn [women] on tend to portray genuine female pleasure, and, not surprisingly, they are generally directed or produced by women," Fulbright said. "This area of the porn industry is constantly at work in meeting her needs with gentler, 'softer' sex."
