3 Reasons Why I’m Pro-Porn

By lanai1

As both a sexually active woman and a sex educator, I’m a HUGE fan of porn and identify someone who is pro-porn. Recognizing that sex can look and feel different to many people, I’m in support of consenting adults using porn as a way to express sexual desires, act out role-playing fantasies, and make money as sex work. Here are my 3 reasons why I’m pro-porn:

Porn can help in discovering sexual turn-on’s and turn-off’s.
As fun and exciting sex can be, it can be daunting and anxiety-ridden for some people. Porn can offer a way for people to learn about sexual practices, techniques, and positions without having to engage in them in real-life. Coming out of a long-term hetero relationship in 2012, I wanted to explore my budding sexual interest in women yet felt too scared to act on it. Through watching videos of women having sex with other women, I gained a better understanding of the kind of queer sex I wanted to have and my new identity as a queer femme.

Porn can be used as a masturbating tool.
Regardless if I’m single or in a relationship, I masturbate to satisfy my sex drive. What makes masturbation and porn a great combination is that it simultaneously incorporates 3 of the 5 senses, which then leads to me having awesome orgsasms. Just as my sex toys are my physical tools, porn is my visual and auditory aid to help me climax during my masturbating sessions.

Porn can give agency to and representation of QTPOC.
As a Black queer femme, seeing people who look like me and my community have amazing sex is paramount. Because of porn companies, such Queer Porn TV and The Crash Pad, people who aren’t white, cis-hetero, skinny, and able-bodied have necessary spaces to be their own porn stars on their own terms. In addition, these porn companies enable QTPOC sex workers to be paid for their work in safe, ethical environments.
