Episode 127: Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys


There are a lot of heterosexual women out there who enjoy watching man-on-man pornography. In fact, some of the most popular tube sites in the world have reported that gay male porn is amongst the most-watched genres by female visitors. So why is that? And why do so many of these women enjoy gay male porn more than heterosexual porn? Let’s explore!

I am joined by Lucy Neville, a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Leicester, a published writer of erotica (under a pen name), and pornography researcher. She is author of the book Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys. Some of the topics we explore include:

  • How common is it for heterosexual people to watch gay porn in general?
  • Why is straight porn often unappealing to heterosexual women?
  • What do so many women find appealing about gay male porn?
  • What role does sexual equality (i.e., versatility) have in the appeal of gay porn?
  • “Gaypropriation”: is it exploitative for women to consume gay male porn?
  • Is the rise of porn made by women, for women changing what women seek in erotic content?
