kolo2More than a third of women watch pornography at least once a week, a new survey has found.

The research by Typeform for Marie Claire also shows how the digital age has made porn more accessible: 90 per cent of the 3,000 female respondents said they watched it online and two-thirds said they watched it on their smartphones.

The survey forms part of a documentary project carried out by photographer Amanda de Cadenet and the magazine.

Ms de Cadenet said she wanted to embark upon the project because womens’ relationship to porn had been “hugely underreported”.

“Porn is here to stay, and we have to learn to negotiate it, as sexual beings ourselves, who may or may not be viewers, and as partners.”

In the survey, 31 per cent of the women said they watched porn every week and another 30 per cent said they did so a few times a month.

Asked what kind of porn they gravitated towards, they answered the following:

63% Heterosexual

44% Lesbian

31% It’s a mixed bag

28% Hard-core

26% Soft-core/”arty”

13% Gay male

13% Not listed here

But these viewing figures are still low when compared with men’s habits. A Cosmopolitan survey from 2014 found that 32.5 per cent of males said they watched it on a daily basis, compared with just 3.8 per cent of women.
