What Is Audio Erotica And Is It For Me?
The extended period of enforced alone time that accompanied the start of the pandemic was challenging for many. But it also allowed for people to explore their needs around desire and pleasure from a new angle. The emerging link between sexual wellness and self-care is becoming less and less taboo, relying on research around the positive healthy effects of mastubration and orgasms.
Audio erotica is playing a more significant role in people’s sex lives, offering a more inclusive way to consume adult content and become aroused. Audio erotica apps look at crucial sexual data in order to enhance their listeners’ experiences, recognizing that 40% of women can have difficulty reaching orgasm. Gina Gutierrez, co-founder of erotic story studio Dipsea, tapped into the fact that 90% of women imagine sexual scenarios to feel turned on, according to a Kinsey Institute study.
The genre is overwhelmingly women-led and content encompasses non-binary and female- identifying experiences. Women from all backgrounds are forging out new careers within audio erotica, from writing sex positive stories to becoming voice actors or being involved in the production aspect. This is a much-welcome change to mainstream porn, which caters predominantly to the male gaze and creates unrealistic expectations, as well as problematic stereotypes, of female bodies and the psychology of sexuality.
With consent playing a central role in audio erotica, it is to be celebrated as a pioneer in contributing to a healthier sexual culture, by helping people to close the gap between fantasy and reality. Whether you’re sexually satisfied and just looking for new ways to spice up your sex life, or you find yourself struggling with intimacy, audio arousal is worth exploring.
