Abstract:

Pornography is a lucrative business with an annual revenue of 12 billion dollars, a 160-fold increase since 1985. Although pornography is still mainly a man's world – produced by and for men – there has been an increase in female participation, both as audience members and as directors and producers. This current study takes on an inquiry that has never been studied before: does the content in popular pornographic videos and films that has been created by female directors differ from that of their male counterparts? And, if so, how is it different? These questions are addressed in the current study of the content features of top-renting adult videos in 2005, as identified in Adult Video News, by both male and female directors. Results show these popular pornographic videos almost always portray females as victims, expressing pleasure when they are aggressed against. Compared to male directors, female directors' videos contain a significantly greater frequency of both physical and verbal aggressive instances.
