Marie Claire Magazine Survey Shows 33% Women Watch Porn Once a Week

With porn becoming more accessible in the digital age, women are no longer the bench sitters. A Spanish online survey firm Typeform for the international women's magazine Marie Claire has revealed that one in every three women watch porn at least once a week. The research also suggested that 90% of the 3,000 female respondents watched it online and two-thirds watched it on their phones.

This survey was part of a documentary project by photographer Amanda de Cadenet and the magazine. The photographer felt women's relationship to porn had been 'hugely under-reported'. de Cadenet said, "Porn is here to stay, and we have to learn to negotiate it, as sexual beings ourselves, who may or may not be viewers, and as partners."



In the survey, 31% of the women said that they watched porn every week and another 30% said that they did so a few times a month. Asked what kind of porn they gravitated towards, 63% said heterosexual, 44% said lesbian while for 31% respondents it was a mixed bag. And 13% said they preferred gay male porn.

The majority of the women preferred to watch porn alone, with two-thirds of them saying they never watched it with a partner. Over half of the women agreed that porn had a positive impact on their sex lives.

de Cadenet further added, "Most of our respondents, at least, are using porn to find what they want, and to figure out how to please themselves."
