It is a well-known fact that women are by nature much more sexually open and liberate, and most of them in surveys and research around the world admit that their attention on porn sites is equally attracted to men and women regardless of their sexual orientation, race, nation, etc. Thus, women are more likely to engage in, or to simply observe, gay, bisexual, and trans porn, as well as those in heterosexual relationships, while men explicitly claim that if they are straight, then only straight porn is considerable.
