Research into the influence of pornography (sexually explicit material) on the sexual life and satisfaction of women is largely concentrated on the negative consequences of such consumption. There is a notable lack of interest in the influence on female sexuality of frequent female consumption of pornography, particularly when it is positive. This paper deals with attitudes, motivation and patterns of pornography consumption among young women who frequently use pornography to satisfy their own sexual needs. It is based on qualitative research carried out by way of in-depth interviews with 16 women aged between 20 and 29, who were engaged in higher education or had already earned a degree. The results have shown that, apart from satisfying their own sexual needs, women are also motivated by curiosity and a desire to learn for the purpose of broadening their own sexual repertoire and their repertoire with a partner. Carried out on a specific sample, this study has shown that consumption of pornography can have a positive influence on those women whose motives for its consumption are related to exploration and enrichment of their own sexual experience.
