It's a myth that women don't watch porn to masturbate

It's a myth that women don't watch porn to masturbate. They do! A lot.

I've spent the last 3 years of my life reading, writing and researching porn and its effects on female relational and sexual health. ⁠

I've learned a few things.⁠

I wasn't surprised by this little factoid, but I was REALLY happy that the research that I've conducted supported the fact that women really do enjoy p.ornography, specifically female-centric (i.e. geared towards female pleasure) p.orn for their solo s.ex escapades.⁠

Collectively, nearly 71% of the women studied reported using p.orn to masturbate "a few times a month," "1-4 times a week" or "daily or almost daily."⁠

Individually, these stats break down to:⁠

10.3% "Daily or almost daily"⁠

24.1% "1-4 times a week"⁠

36.3% "A few times a month" ⁠

I'm curious to know what you think of this information. Do you think this is a good thing? A sign of something negative? Let me hear your thoughts! Comment below with your questions and/or concerns!⁠
