Your understanding of women and porn is probably hinged upon the women you’re watching on screen, and not the women actually watching the screen themselves. The editors atMarie Claire embarked on a two year long journey that culminated in a survey of over 3,000 women spilling the beans on how they engage in sexy screen time — and the results are definitely eye-opening.

Below are six things you need to know about how the lady in your life is probably watching porn.

They’re all watching it...

61% of the respondents watch it either every week or a few times a month. 

...but they’re not watching it for you

Sorry, but 66% of the women who watch porn never watch it with a partner, and only 17% watch it to try and figure out what their partners want in bed. Which means it’s purely for their own enjoyment — we can get on board with that.

They’re watching it on their smartphones

62% acknowledge using their phones to display their erotica of choice. That leaves one hand free....

...which makes sense, because they’re watching to get off

73% view porn because, according to the study, “it's a quick road to an orgasm.” We salute you, ladies, for getting yours whenever and wherever you want.

Even though it’s widespread, many still have reservations...

Of those who identified having a conflicted opinion about porn, 56% admitted that, according to the survey question, “It turns me on, but I'm concerned about how the industry treats women and/or I feel it perpetuates negative stereotypes.” Fair, fair. May we suggest Make Love, Not Porn?

...but it’s not all bad

51% of the women surveyed agree that it’s taught them more about sex, and 29% feel sexy indulging in a little erotica.
