The Real Reason Why I Hate ‘Farm Porn’: ‘It’s Really Not What You Think’
When it comes to porn, the biggest obstacle to the porn industry’s dominance is probably our own expectations.
In 2016, the most recent year for which statistics are available, Pornhub reported that the number of searches for “farm porn” spiked by more than 2.5 percent, and that its most popular searches include “farm,” “grape,” and “peasant.”
The term is also the most searched for on Google, with searches rising by more nearly 2 percent in 2017.
“It’s really not what you think,” says Jennifer Lawrence.
“Farm porn, it’s really just people who love to see women being violated.”
In a survey of over 10,000 porn fans, PornHub found that over half of the respondents believed that “farm” and “grapes” are the most commonly searched terms for “porn.”
(That number was slightly higher for men, with more than 70 percent of male respondents saying that “peasants” and the like were their most frequently searched terms.)
“It really is hard for me to see why you would have an issue with a woman being abused,” says Lisa, who goes by “Lisa.”
“I think that if someone is being abused, you’re gonna feel it.
I think there are other ways to deal with it than just looking for something to fuck.
But I do find it really distressing when people do that.
It makes me feel sick.”
