The Feminist Porn Guide

For those wanting more information about what feminist porn entails and access to a wealth of feminist porn resources then this site is for you. The Feminist Porn Guide provides lists of recommended directors, sites, and films that caters to all genders and sexualities and depicts every kind of sexual activity, while remaining inclusive, diverse, educational, and very sexy. It even includes a periodic table of feminist porn as well as an article on what constitutes feminist porn!

The site features on films and producers previously recommended by The Clit List, such as Ms Naughty and The Crash Pad series, as well as number of others. Films include a short introduction so viewers can be aware of the content, although The Clit List warns that not all films have full content warnings therefore viewers should be careful to research the film further before viewing if triggering is possible.

The Clit List is sincerely grateful to the founder and leader of My Body Back – Pavan Amara – for her blog piece on wanking journals. If you too have advice or comments to share with viewers, especially survivors, please email ella@mybodybackproject.com for more details.

WANKING JOURNALS: GIVE YOUR VAGINA HER OWN DIARY!

Wanking journals are useful in so many ways. And, your vag deserves her own diary.

If you’re one of the millions of women who have experienced sexual violence, then you know, how important it is that your vagina is respected, cared about, and heard. She deserves to get things how she wants things. And that’s where a wanking diary really helps.

Vagina’s react to things: to stress, to the weather, to food, to tiredness, to music, the list is endless. For example, ever noticed you’re too tense to masturbate after a rough day at work? Or, how you feel like going to sleep after eating too much, rather than having sex. A lot of women find their pelvic floor muscles relax in hot weather or after a hot shower, and others find they have better sex when they’re tired because they’re less high-alert and their muscles are more relaxed. Your individual vagina will have her own way. Once you start noticing her feelings throughout the week and recording the possible causes, you may notice patterns. Things might surprise you. You can record the best masturbation techniques, lubes, any images, videos, dirty thoughts that particularly worked for you.

The main thing is to make it fun, and to make your wanking diary completely your own. It can be colourful, stickered up, very plain, whatever you want. It’s written evidence that your fanny is your own. She has her own mind. If you’ve ever been sexually assaulted, you will get why this means so much. Start noticing what makes her light up, and the things that make her day. Knowing all of this will help you plan better, brighter wanking sessions.

The patriarchy tells you to keep a man happy…forget all that. All you have to do is keep her downstairs happy. Romance her, treat her right, think about what she wants and make sure she gets it. This is the one you need to think about impressing. SHE WILL GIVE YOU ORGASMS. She will put a smile on your face. She will make you so content in your life.

So – this is why a wanking diary could be useful. Go and get one!

The Society for Human Sexuality developed from a student advocacy organisation at the University of Washington in the late 1990s to address a growing need for accurate and empowering information about sexual health and sexuality. Although the website is focused on American resources and is no longer actively maintained, with the last new document added in 2007, the website still provides a range of interesting resources for women looking for advice on improving their sexual experience, sexual ethics and politics, and sexual networks.
