Feminist porn, porn for women, porn for couples - in the past few years, porn has shifted directions a bit, moving away from the Cum On My Face #14 gonzo films that stocked porn stores everywhere. Well, actually, they still do, but there are some newer kids on the block, too.What does it mean when a film is called "porn for women" though? First, this implicitly sets up the idea that all other porn is "porn for men", not something that women would ever want to watch. Second, it claims to have some idea of what "women" in general want. Sometimes, that boils down to people who are into each other having a lot of fun - a concept I think we can all get behind. It can also mean playing to stereotypes about all women wanting candles and flowers and love poems and massages.The reason I have a problem with the idea of "porn for women" is that, anecdotally, I just don't experience it. I've spent five years talking to Babeland customers about porn and I've meet just as many men who are absolutely fed up with what they're supposed to love and many women who are looking for something with some hardcore action in it.What the people I talk to have in common is that they want to see people having realistically good times - getting off, having fun, etc. The activities vary but the theme is the same. A porn can have all of the candles and love poems in the world, but if one person still looks bored, it doesn't matter.That's where I think the idea of feminist porn comes in. Instead of relying on stereotypes about women, these films explore and explode those stereotypes. Instead of fake pleasure, these films search for real orgasms, laughter, and surprise.No matter who you are, if you're looking for porn that is an alternative to the mainstream, check out the Feminist Porn Awards for a list of past winners for a place to start, or look at our DVD selections - they're all movies we love.
