Butch Lesbians & Queer Porn [SFW]
Despite the lackluster reputation of lesbian porn, we enjoy all kinds, including gay. Hot sex is hot sex and if the idea of shared sexual intimacy between two people of the same sex is repulsive, you should probably stop reading now. One of the biggest reasons gay porn is widely available is because it’s better marketed and mass produced. Add to that the glaring realization that the audience for it is a dominant force to be reckoned with. The financial sustainability and support from the gay male demographic is undeniable. Gay men support gay porn, but then again so do a number of gay women. There is a power dynamic in play in most gay porn that sets the stage for explosive chemistry on screen. As I alluded to previously, if the chemistry is there the scene will sizzle.
For the most part, men, women and straight couples are rarely stigmatized for watching and enjoying lesbian porn. So why stigmatize lesbians for watching and enjoying their garden variety? Some lesbians have even been accused of being “secretly” bisexual for watching gay guys get off.
Lesbians that watch gay porn aren’t intimidated by the male actors and their (counter) [private] parts. There is a focus that’s shifted onto specific aspects of the sexual dynamic and how it relates to how they see themselves in the moment. Straight porn carries its own weight, but nine times out of ten you don’t even get to see the woman bask in the glow of her own orgasmic aftermath. Boo! That’s reserved for the guy about 90% of the time. I know, I know, I’m blatantly generalizing, but how often have you seen women in straight porn reach orgasm, let alone multiple times? Yeah, that’s what I thought. The dynamic lies not only in the roles performed, but the emotion and raw energy being expended, which makes authentic same sex porn even more appealing.
What I appreciate most are the power dynamics regardless of the type being watched. The loving, caressing and tender embracing is more than fulfilling in the bedroom, but what I really want to see is power, control, desire and longing manifested within the act itself. Lesbian porn was accused of being either too tender or downright ridiculously giddy and sometimes both. Overall, the general consensus among women loving women was that the quality of real lesbian porn had been sub par for years. It has improved considerably as of late. Another thing to note is that it has always been a staple fixture in the lesbian community, you just needed to know where find the good stuff. What lesbians wanted was porn made for women, by women (FWBW). And at the very least they wanted to watch women who looked a lot like, and represented a wider variety of girly to not so girly girls. Is the passion still there? It certainly is, but with a nice mix of vanilla and not so vanilla sex, so there’s a little something for everyone.
Au naturale lesbian porn has seriously lacked the financial and marketing support her male counterpart has enjoyed for years. There had to be a reason for this. Real-lesbian-porn seemed to be a oxy-moron or some sick joke of epic proportions for the longest time. Did it even exist? If you were lucky, then yes. Some of the most popular old school lesbian porn was performed by bisexual butches, femmes, pansexuals and just a scattering of actual lesbians. Apparently, butch lesbians, who are the least represented in the porn industry, (hell, even midgets have a place) are few and far between. Most of us don’t mind watching porn, but we’d rather not participate in it unless we are in our bedroom doing the acting, directing, the whole nine… or something to that effect. But who’s counting, and more importantly, who’s complaining? There’s certainly no reason to complain any longer. If we want authentic lesbian porn to continue being produced, we have to support the girls and bois behind the scenes making big and little things happen, and I sincerely thank them for it.
www.babeland.com is a good place to start. A friend turned me onto the www.CrashPadSeries.com a few years ago when my taste for lesbian porn was re-awakened. Thanks, babe. There is even something for trans guys to check out; Transentities (Papi and Will are a couple of freak nasties and damn proud of it) Some additional links I came across recently and in my past include www.goodvibrations.com, www.gooddykeporn.com, www.reallesbianporn.net, www.boundheat.net (?) and bringing up the rear is www.pornmoviesforwomen.com. Check them out sometime. When you and babygirl are looking to spice it up a bit. Or just you, looking to spice it up all by yourself. Shhh, we won’t tell. If you come across any broken links, please let me know.
In conclusion, there are some solid lesbian production companies that can be found on the Internet. Word of mouth advertising among other things can be a catalyst for encouraging the current and future production and marketing of real, quality, lesbian porn. We’ve got work to do ladies and gents. Let’s get to it.
