Okay this is rather embarrassing but I was just wondering if you could recommend some websites (preferably free) that host female positive/ feminist porn.
The thing is, I've been pretty sexually curious since my early teens and at that time I started watching mainstream porn online and masturbating to it and even though it has always disgusted me, it's developed into a habit. Now that I'm older I've become very interested in feminism and women's rights and realize that the porn I've been watching reinforces very dangerous stereotypes and operates under the male gaze. I don't want to watch it and always hate myself when I do however I don't have a sexual partner and have become used to masturbating with visual stimulation and it just doesn't work as well when I try to without. I tried to find some feminist porn which didn't demean women and catered to my taste for men but everything I found I either had to pay for or was targeted at gay men, (aka still for the male gaze). So please, I was wondering if you know of any female positive porn sights that I can explore or if maybe you had any tips I could try to wean myself off of the negative pornography I've become accustomed too. I've tried just not watching it but I feel like I just really need something to replace it. Sorry if this is too much info/uncomfortable but I would really appreciate some guidance. Thanks.

Looking at this post again it may go better in Body&Soul so you can move it if you want.

We cannot link here to sites that have an "adults-only" warning/are targetted at people 18 and older so I'm not sure how much help we can really be. That said, there are feminist porn producers out there, and with patient searching I know you can find them. A thought for you: The type of porn you're looking for is usually going to be stuff you have to pay for. Paying is how we support quality in anything, both in how it is produced and in the level of thoughtfulness and consideration behind it. So it may be that you'll need to invest a little if you're able to.

Can I make the suggestion of indie comics, too? There's one that's specifically feminist called "Smut Peddler" that I've had my eye on for a long time. Also, "Chester 5000 XYV" is feminist and awesome. Those are the ones I know, but I think comics and web comics are a great medium for feminist porn.

It could also be a good idea to find out which porn has gained recognition and won awards for its' representations of women. The feminist porn awards may be a good place to look!
