Porn not only a man's thing- French study

Porn not only a man's thing- French study

A study of 579 women carried out by the IFOP pollster released on Friday has revealed that four fifths of French women have watched a porn movie before -- one in two of them without their partners.

Sixty two percent of women said they watched porn to spice up their sex life with a partner, but one in two watched xxx-movies on their own.

40 percent of the respondents said that a natural-looking cast was important, while "realistic" sex scenes mattered more for 35 percent.

71 percent of the interviewed women claimed that the industry caters only to male fantasies.

Meanwhile 72 percent felt the films on offer were "highly degrading" to women, and 57 percent found them too violent.

Only five percent of female porn watchers were frequenters doing so once a month or more, while 13 percent watched a few times a year.

Frequent women viewers were younger while those with no sex experience made up a third of all regular viewers.
