What Is Feminist Porn? Here's Why You Should Know About It!

Feminism is the infamous 'F' word people often love to hate. Most of them without even realising that feminism is nothing but gender equality. For the longest time, porn has been made kinky to please the male sex. The story, the dialogues, the angles - everything is made keeping a man's pleasure in mind. And that has, in a lot of cases, formed the underlying base for rape culture.


Now you have something called feminist porn and before you laugh it off because it has the words feminist and porn together, you need to hear this out. It's bigger than just a desire to please women watching it. Which is why we need to talk about it.

What is feminist porn?


Unlike what popular opinion might say, feminist porn is not about having a romantic, foreplay heavy storyline that will appeal to the women. Instead, it's about gender equality behind the camera. So the questions are - is the sex consensual? Are there proper tests performed before? Are the participants treated with respect? Are the directors focussing on the actors' well-being? When all these and several other criterias are met off camera, only then is it considered feminist porn.


Does that mean BDSM is not allowed?


BDSM is very much allowed in feminist porn, if that's what you are into it. It's not about looking down on people's sexual preferences but more about making sure no one is forced into a certain kind of performance. 


The idea here is to get the ethics right, rather than the outcome. Like why people prefer to buy organic clothing is because they care about the background story of the cloth as much as they care about the final result. 


So whether it's BDSM, threesome, anal - as long as the viewer knows both the parties have agreed to it and their terms are being respected, it is more enjoyable.

How do you know it's feminist porn?


Most of the adult websites that offer feminist porn require you to pay for it. The reason is simple, having sex on-screen is a job. So if you have to pay to watch a movie, you should also be paying to watch porn and along with it, changing the workings of the industry itself. A little research on any adult website will reveal to you whether they offer feminist porn or not. But if it is free, chances are it's not.
