Contrary to what feminists like to claim, pornography that shows submissive natures and violence against women is mostly viewed by women.
The submissive nature of being dominated is a major fetish to many women who are aroused by the thought of being abused or choked or restrained. It's a turn on.
Seth Stephens-Davidowitz is a researcher who's studied this fetish who claims that porn which features violence against women is consumed significantly more popular among women compared to men.
Such findings might explain the popularity of the Bondage, Dominance, Submissive, Masochist, or BDSM titles such as the “Fifty Shades of Grey” series of novels and films among females.
“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.”
American females aren’t the only citizens who enjoy this genre either, 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.
“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.”
Such exotic forms of sexual deviance and erotica pleasures are wildly attractive to females for a variety of reasons. One, also contrary to the feminist ideology, women are meant to be controlled. As in their hormones and genetics are built to be satisfied by this.
Stephens-Davidowitz says that, “Porn is the biggest development in sexuality research ever. I don't understand how social scientists weren't begging Pornhub for their data. I was one of the only ones. I sent some of my results to some of the most famous sociologists and sex researchers in the world. Many of them had no interest.”
He says that contrary to socioeconomic opinions on sex, that Google search results actually show quite a variation of different fetish especially amongst the more disturbing ingredients of porn like beastiality, which is sex with animals.
“It’s interesting. Some sexual preferences I first learned about on The Jerry Springer Show, which featured really poor, uneducated people. People attracted to animals or family members or the elderly. But, now from seeing porn data, I realize those preferences also exist among wealthy, educated people. Wealthy, educated people are more cognizant of contemporary social norms, which means if you have such an attraction, you hide it.” says Stephens-Davidowitz.
When asked how society should treat such attractions Stephens-Davidowitz says that, “Sometimes I think it would be a good thing if everyone’s porn habits were released at once. It would be embarrassing for 30 seconds. And then we’d all get over it and be more open about sex.”
