Are you and your partner curious about porn? Have you been watching it for a while, but want to find something new? Don’t worry—you are definitely not alone. In fact, watching porn together can be an fabulous addition to your sex life.

According to a study from the Journal of Sex & Therapy, couples who watch porn together and have open and honest conversations about pornography and fantasy have healthier and happier relationships.

Porn is a great way to explore a fantasy together. It’s not cheating and it doesn’t mean your relationship is in trouble. Porn is an erotic experience that can be highly pleasurable for couples, but with all of the mainstream, poor-quality porn out there, it can be hard to figure out where to look.

Here are our favorite, personality-based recommendations for every kind of couple.

The Indie Couple

Erika Lust is, in my opinion, the best feminist pornographer out there right now. Her stuff gives life to real female bodies, pubic hair situations, and erotically charged fantasy (who hasn’t imagined renting an AirBnB and hooking up with their hot hosts?).

Her XCollection series gives us a female gaze without being overtly “female-centric.” In a word, it is still super hot and works for everyone. Trust me, you don’t want to sleep on this chick—these films are the sexy indie dream.

The Traditional Couple

If you’re just starting out on the whole “watching porn together” train, you might want to kick things off with something on the softer side. Hot Movies for Her charges for 69 minutes at $9.95, so you don’t have to commit to a full subscription until you’re ready.

The videos are super steamy, high quality, and never so intense that you or your partner will feel uncomfortable or weird.

The Couple Looking for Lots of Options

Now, if you’re a couple who has a short collective attention span and likes a whole lot of different videos to choose from during any one sexual experience, TrenchCoatx is a great site for you. It features a ton of high-res videos with a wide range of actors and sex acts (they call it "curated smut”). It has a fun, online magazine feel so you never feel weird or seedy scrolling.

Best part: It’s only $21 a month. That’s, like, four coffees.

Couples Curious About Kink

If you’re curious about kink, Kink.com is going to be your bread and butter. Why is it better than gangbangs and floggings on RedTube? Well, for starters, the videos from Kink.com are actually high-res and not terrible; they are well-produced, and feature over 10,000 options of every kind of kinky fantasy you can think up. From Fem Doms to caning to golden showers, this site has got you covered.

Kink.com isn't cheap, but you will get your money’s worth, we promise.

The Eclectic Couple

Bellesa is a site that offers a wide range of empowering porn videos so both women and men can get in on the action. Whether you’re in the mood for sensual, passionate, or intense scenes, Bellesa has something for you, labeled accordingly.

Bellesa is feminist and definitely overtly geared towards all things female-centric, but is still accessible to anyone. It makes for awesome foreplay fodder and essential mutual masturbation material.

The Nerdy Couple

Founded by Elle Chase, Lady Cheeky is a fun, pop-art style porn site that offers a wide range of GIFs and clips of erotic scenes and art. It’s basically Tumblr for getting off, kind of like bite-sized porn—it works as a great foreplay tool.

The Couple Looking for Some Real-Life Queer Sex

Portrayals of queer sex on free, mainstream sites can be straight-up unrealistic. Every scene is shot for the male lens, and when you’re trying to view a lesbian sex scene as someone who knows what lesbian sex actually looks like, this can be a huge turn off.

Crash Pad Series is a $25 a month service that offers life-like scenes ideal for the couple who wants to watch queer scenes that aren’t cringe-worthy. It centers on an apartment where cameras are "secretly" set up to catch couples doing it on film. Also check out Queen Porn TV, which is another awesome option. The videos aren't as high quality, but are still good.

The Couple Who Knows What They’re Doing

If this isn’t your first rodeo, you’re over the terrible free clips you’ve been viewing, and know your way around a porn site, check out Good Vibrations. Good Vibrations has been housing ethical porn since the dawn of the Internet, and has a lengthy list of the best independent porn films on the market.

The list is nearly endless, ranging from feminist scenes to more education videos (hey, we can all use a little inspiration, right?). Browse through the collection and pick one (or a few) that you like best.

For the Couple Who Wants Real Passion

For the couple who has seen all the porn, is super over it, and wants something real: right this way. If you and your partner are interested in watching real-life couples get it on and viewing the real-life intimacy of sex, check out Make Love Not Porn. Created by Cindy Gallop, MLNP is the first-ever social sex sharing site.

Couples make real videos of themselves having sex—no actors, only real lovin'. It’s a unique erotic experience wherein the passion and pleasure you’re seeing are 100% authentic. It’s sex on video like you’ve never seen it before.
