The Queer Porn Underground

Queer porn adds the realism missing in mainstream porn.

Queer porn adds the realism missing in mainstream porn.

Finding realistic lesbian porn was once a nearly impossible task. Sure, the mainstream has always been chock full of porn with girl on girl scenes… the kind with twin blondes fingering each other with french manicured nails while performing a show-y tongue-circling kiss.

If the mainstream lesbian porn never quite convinced you, it’s for good reason. It’s been noted that many of the buxom blondes in mainstream lesbian porn aren’t even half gay, many identify as straight.

Years ago queer activists like Courtney Trouble, Bren Ryder and Shine Louise Houston got fed up with the fact that there was no porn for lesbians and set out to create their own. Enter the birth of queer porn.

Queer porn takes what gay and lesbian porn does then cranks the voltage up. The casting includes all genders and identities, among those present are trans, gender queers, butches, femmes and even some biological males as well as straights!

Queer porn truly does not fit into any of the traditional porn genres. It has been called authentic and performed rather than acted. Many queer porn performers actually share scenes with their real life partners, giving a sense that the sex is truly spontaneous and passionate. Sex writer, Violet Blue compared the Crash Pad queer porn series to gay porn because of it’s intensity and rawness in this respect.

Queer porn is revolutionary in that it allows for different bodies and body types, providing a different view of what we are supposed to think is hot. Queer porn can then change the way we think about porn itself. Often outrightly feminist, it erases the worries of women being exploited or demeaned. It is about real sex, a celebration of sex and sexuality.

Courtney Trouble, the founder of the longest running queer porn site nofauxxx has said that her porn is for “the true connoisseur of alt-porn, erotica and queer porn. For people who look at porn for both arousal and thought-provocation.”
