New Study: Women Watch Porn More Than Men

share on:

According to a new French study, at least 1 out of every 2 women has watched porn in her life.

A study released on Friday challenges the myth that porn is a guy thing, showing that four fifths of French women have watched a porn movie before — one in two of them without their partners. Fully 82 percent of women questioned said they had watched an X-rated film at least once before, compared to 99 percent of men, according to the study of 579 women carried out by the IFOP polling institute in September.

Their number has jumped from 73 percent in 2006, and from as little as 23 percent in 1992 according to a major INSERM study on French sexuality carried out at the time, IFOP’s Francois Kraus told AFP. “In the space of a few years it has become an accepted thing for women to watch pornography, partly thanks to the Internet, and video-on-demand services that made porn more accessible and took away the shame factor,” he said. Sixty two percent of women said they watched porn to spice up their sex life with a partner, but fully one in two had also done so on their own.
