Anhand einer Auswertung von Suchanfragen bei Google kommt ein Forscher zu der Ansicht, dass harte Pornografie mit Gewalt auch gerne von Frauen geschaut wird.
Aus einem Artikel dazu:
The popular feminist narrative would have you believe that porn is largely consumed by men, and that depictions of violent — or at least rough — sex would be a primarily male-dominated interest.
This is untrue, states researcher Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, who says that porn featuring violence against women is significantly more popular among women compared to men.
His findings might explain the popularity of the BDSM-heavy “Fifty Shades of Grey” series of novels among female readers.
Speaking to Vox in an interview about how Google data proves that most Americans lie about their sexual preferences, the researcher and author of “Everybody Lies” asserts that more women enjoy the genre compared to male porn watchers — despite common sense and politically correct claims to the contrary.
“Porn featuring violence against women is also extremely popular among women,” said the author. “It is far more popular among women than men.”
“I hate saying that because misogynists seem to love this fact,” he added. “Fantasy life isn’t always politically correct.”
Stephens-Davidowitz calls Google’s data a “digital truth serum.” With an illustrious career in academia, the researcher has produced extensive volumes of original research into the field of big data, published in academic journals and The New York Times. He presently serves as a quantitative analyst at Google, where he researches internet searches to understand human behavior.
Americans aren’t the only people susceptible to self-deception, claims Stephens-Davidowitz.
“The rate at which women watch violent porn is roughly the same in every part of the world. It isn’t correlated with how women are treated,” he stated.
The researcher also highlighted a curious instance in India, where the number one search for “my husband wants…” ends with breastfeeding, and that porn featuring adult breastfeeding is more popular in India compared to anywhere else.
“In just about every country, just about every Google search looking for advice on breastfeeding is looking how to breastfeed a baby,” he said. “In India, Google searches looking for breastfeeding advice are about equally split between how to breastfeed a baby and how to breastfeed a husband.”
Likewise, another oddity comes from Japan, where at least 10 percent of the porn-related searches involve tickling. The author says calling these preferences “weird” isn’t the correct response.
“The data from porn tells us that everybody is weird,” he said. “Thus, nobody is weird.”
Nach der Auswertung der Daten schauen also eher Frauen als Männer Pornografie, in der Gewalt gegen Frauen gezeigt wird.

This study evaluated the rape fantasies of female undergraduates (N = 355) using a fantasy checklist that reflected the legal definition of rape and a sexual fantasy log that included systematic prompts and self-ratings. Results indicated that 62% of women have had a rape fantasy, which is somewhat higher than previous estimates. For women who have had rape fantasies, the median frequency of these fantasies was about 4 times per year, with 14% of participants reporting that they had rape fantasies at least once a week. In contrast to previous research, which suggested that rape fantasies were either entirely aversive or entirely erotic, rape fantasies were found to exist on an erotic-aversive continuum, with 9% completely aversive, 45% completely erotic, and 46% both erotic and aversive.
On the contrary, in fact: This new study found that the less repressed about sex women said they were and the more positive attitudes they had about sex, the more likely they were to fantasize about rape or ravishment. It makes sense, when you think about it: These women are more open to fantasy in general, and are less likely to feel guilty about their fantasy lives.
…And just in case that doesn’t completely shut down the slut-shame theory: Women who reported more rape fantasies were more likely to have high self-esteem.
Aus „Fifty Shades of Grey“
“Suddenly he grabs me, tipping me across his lap. With one smooth movement, he angles his body so my torso is resting on the bed beside him. He throws his right leg over both mine and plants his left forearm on the small of my back, holding me down so I cannot move … He places his hand on my naked behind, softly fondling me, stroking around and around with his flat palm. And then his hand is no longer there … and he hits me—hard.” (273, 274) (…)
We lie there, panting together, waiting for our breathing to slow. He gently strokes my hair … Boy … I Survived. That wasn’t so bad. I’m more stoic than I thought. My inner goddess is prostrate … well, at least she’s quiet.” (276) “At the touch of leather, I quiver and gasp. He walks around me again, trailing the crop around the middle of my body. On his second circuit, he suddenly flicks the crop, and it hits me underneath my behind … against my sex … The shock runs through me, and it’s the sweetest, strangest, hedonistic feeling … My body convulses at the sweet, stinging bite. My nipples harden and elongate from the assault, and I moan loudly, pulling on my leather cuffs.” (323)
“His arms are wrapped around me, and he’s pulling me to him, hard, fast, gripping my ponytail to tilt my head up, kissing me like his life depends on it … He drags the hair tie painfully out of my hair, but I don’t care. He needs me, for whatever reason, at this point in time, and I have never felt so desired and coveted.” (478)
It has been hypothesized that female orgasm evolved to facilitate recruitment of high-quality genes for offspring. Supporting evidence indicates that female orgasm promotes conception, although this may be mediated by the timing of female orgasm in relation to male ejaculation. This hypothesis also predicts that women will achieve orgasm more frequently when copulating with high-quality males, but limited data exist to support this prediction. We therefore explored relationships between the timing and frequency of women’s orgasms and putative markers of the genetic quality of their mates, including measures of attractiveness, facial symmetry, dominance, and masculinity. We found that women reported more frequent and earlier-timed orgasms when mated to masculine and dominant men—those with high scores on a principal component characterized by high objectively-measured facial masculinity, observer-rated facial masculinity, partner-rated masculinity, and partner-rated dominance. Women reported more frequent orgasm during or after male ejaculation when mated to attractive men—those with high scores on a principal component characterized by high observer-rated and self-rated attractiveness. Putative measures of men’s genetic quality did not predict their mates‘ orgasms from self-masturbation or from non-coital partnered sexual behavior. Overall, these results appear to support a role for female orgasm in sire choice.
Men’s copulatory success can often be predicted by measuring traits involved in male contests and female choice. Previous research has demonstrated relationships between one such vocal trait in men, mean fundamental frequency (F0), and the outcomes and indicators of sexual success with women. The present study investigated the role of another vocal parameter, F0 variation (the within-subject SD in F0 across the utterance, F0–SD), in predicting men’s reported number of female sexual partners in the last year. Male participants (N = 111) competed with another man for a date with a woman. Recorded interactions with the competitor (“competitive recording”) and the woman (“courtship recording”) were analyzed for five non-linguistic vocal parameters: F0–SD, mean F0, intensity, duration, and formant dispersion (Df , an acoustic correlate of vocal tract length), as well as dominant and attractive linguistic content. After controlling for age and attitudes toward uncommitted sex (SOI), lower F0–SD (i.e., a more monotone voice) and more dominant linguistic content were strong predictors of the number of past-year sexual partners, whereas mean F0 and Df did not significantly predict past-year partners. These contrasts have implications for the relative importance of male contests and female choice in shaping men’s mating success and hence the origins and maintenance of sexually dimorphic traits in humans.
