    I've been fascinated by erotic media and pornography since I first saw it as a teenager over 40 years ago. The film "Deep Throat," which was the first step toward normalizing porn among the American public, came out when I was just turning 18 years of age and I think standing in a long, long line of normal, average, curious people (men AND women) to see it at a neighborhood movie theater in a mid-sized city had a profound effect on my sexuality and my ideas about media.

    After the blatant lies of the anti-porn movement of the 1980s finally gave way to the VCR-and-internet-assisted reality that many, MANY women enjoyed erotic media and pornography just as much as men, and that not all of the women or even most of the women and perhaps not even many of the women who participated in the making of such imagery were coerced into it, I hoped that women would begin to infiltrate and to some extent even take over the whole industry--or at least half of it.

    I'm just wondering if women here at LPSG have made any efforts to start their own creative erotic media ventures, how you feel about this, whether you agree with me that it is amazing how unimaginative and boring and stupid most porn still is, even though we live in a time period when women COULD be more involved in transforming the medium into much more of an art form. The focus on cock size is an obvious (if not THE most obvious) and I think potentially HOT premise for a whole genre of erotica by women that has, surprisingly to me, not gone anywhere at all yet. The old cultural and logistic barriers to this have been removed, but the porn just stays stupider and stupider.

    And more importantly, any IDEAS that would relate erotica to what women want and what would be EXCITING and fun and thrilling and titillating and pruriently interesting to women??!!

    Most of it is written by women? Also most of Japanese manga is apparently drawn and I assume written by women. If you're into that sort of thing...

    Yes, I agree.

    There are MANY erotic books that are written by women that have a few sentences focusing on the size of the male character's penis. Personally, there is really only so much to say about it and I would become bored and distracted if the author droned on and on about it.

    I don't really think there is such as thing as "what women want." We all like different things, different men, different everything.

    If you are interested in what seems to sell on erotica sites to women you can check out erotic ebook sites that seem to have mostly female reviews. Most of the sites have general themes that sell the best outlined for their potential authors.

    This is what sells the best to me

    sci-fi *including alien, cyborg, futuristic type imaginary novels"
    Shapeshifter, lycan, rarely vampires
    MaleDom bondage, Kink

    Media based porn, well I'm kind of porned out. I've explored it and I'd rather focus my attentions on a good smutty book, that I know is going to make my heart race. Most media porn is passably interesting to just down right *yawns* boring. I have to watch kink to be interested OR it has to be porn that really focuses on the woman and by that I don't mean how hot her body looks:rolleyes:
