On the whole, free porn is a notoriously misogynistic world of aggressive thrusting, hairless bodies, and over-exaggerated moans (that is, it’s almost always devoid of genuine female pleasure). Independent feminist directors like Erika Lust, inclusive platforms like CrashPadSeries and Pink Label TV, and the rise of “ethical porn” (which protects performers and celebrates diversity), have done their bit to remedy this in recent years. But mainstream porn remains a largely visual – and frenetic experience – that caters to the male gaze.
A new platform has launched that turns this outdated genre of porn on its head: it’s entirely devoid of imagery. Quinn, which debuted on the 13th April, features just auditory and written porn, a USP which founder Caroline Spiegel (Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel’s younger sister, no less), says makes for “a more fun, chill, and clean experience for women. It’s all about pleasure and good vibes,” she tells Refinery29. With fans and creators of NSFW content still reeling from Tumblr’s total ban of adult content last year, the launch of a new platform for sexy stories and audio couldn’t be more timely.
Quinn users can listen to people having sex, read user-submitted stories and fantasies, and post their own, with categories including “accent” and “gentle”; user-penned erotica with titles like “Orgasmic Meditation” and “Hot Yoga”; and a lot of breathy moans from both men and women (sample title: “Snugglefuck”). If you’re already a fan of the ‘brain orgasm’ or ‘tingles’ induced by ASMR, you’d be depriving yourself by not giving Quinn a chance.
