Whether you’re trying to get in the mood ahead of a sexy date or are settling in for a little solo sex sesh, there’s nothing wrong with flipping on a bit of porn. It’s hot, it can take you from desert dry to waterfall wet in a matter of minutes, and it’s super readily available.

So readily available, in fact, that sorting the safe porn sites from the predatory (and grimy) ones isn’t as simple as typing “porn” into your search browser. Do that and you’ll be bombarded with ads at best and phishing scams at worst.

But “safe” doesn’t just mean safe for you—it means safe for the creators as well. Enter: ethical porn. “Ethical porn is made with open communication, honesty, respect, and transparency,” explains Angie Rowntree, the founder and director of the sex-positive, safe porn site Sssh.com. “Everything you see in the scene has been negotiated and consented to by all parties before the cameras are ever rolling.” Rowntree also adds that ethical porn means fair pay for performers, secure sets with food and water, performers’ ability to choose scene partners, and consent checks throughout shooting.

Clearly, ethical porn is the way to go. But what fans often find is that the ethically made stuff isn’t free. A bummer, sure, but in reality, this is a good thing. “Like any other form of entertainment, porn costs money to make,” Rowntree says. “Why do movies at a theater cost money? Ethical porn pays everyone (cast and crew) and has production costs.” And FWIW, watching porn that you know was created safely just feels better.

The very good news is that there are a lotta different types of ethical porn out there to fulfill any fantasy or highlight any kink. And once you find something you like, Rowntree stresses the benefits of watching. “Porn is known for leading people to have orgasms; and regular orgasms have various medical benefits such as reduced stress, improved immunity, pain reduction (including period cramp relief), stronger pelvic floor muscles, better sleep, and so forth.” Plus, watching porn is a way to engage in a type of sex you might not want to/be ready to partake in IRL or just explore ideas to try with a partner.

Basically, watching safe porn is a win-win all around. You get that spicy content, the people who made it enthusiastically consented to the process, and it won’t crash your computer. And luckily for, well, just about everyone, there are tons of safe porn sites and apps out there you can feel good about ethically and physically. Read on for 17 of our faves that’ll get you off and get the creators paid. Literally love to see it!

1. Sssh.com

Female-led, female-focused, ethically produced, and recommended by Rashida Jones? It’s clear Sssh.com checks off all the boxes. The site’s sex-positive films, photos, and stories have been winning awards since 1999 thanks to its feminist-centered content. “Sssh.com is and always has been a very collaborative studio,” Rowntree says. “We not only discuss and negotiate the sex to everyone’s comfort, but we also listen to our performers’ input as far as the creative direction of their characters, which greatly enhances the storylines and how the sex is portrayed in our films.”

Plus, all of the materials are geared toward women and couples (and the site isn’t at all spammy), so you can watch/read stress-free knowing you won’t get viruses and you’re supporting the creators of the content.

AudioDesires provides stories—some are read and some are narrated situations—for women and couples. The best part is that the library is huuuuge and it’s full of different voice actors and different scenarios so you can easily mix things up.

          There’s a lot to love about Bellesa. Not only do they showcase real, unscripted sex, but they also never include fake orgasms in their vids (yes, groundbreaking). Per Bellesa’s website, they believe “sexuality on the internet should depict women as we truly are—as subjects of pleasure, not objects of conquest.” All of their content (including porn videos, erotic stories, and articles) are ethically created and there’s a wide variety of free materials for anyone who doesn’t want to pay.

          9. Netflix

          I know, I know, but seriously: Netflix is full of sexy scenes that are way more realistic and sometimes even better than porn. If you’re like me and love a good plot and character love story, Netflix is filled with them. Pair the scenes with some seriously sexy hookups, and you’ve got a crossover of character porn you’re actually interested in. Plus, you probs already have Netflix downloaded on all your streaming devices anyway.

          A few of my favorite shows that really capitalize on the whole porn-y thing: Outlander, The Witcher (good luck watching Henry Cavill and not feeling the urge to touch yourself), Sex/Life, Élite, and of course, Bridgerton.

          Cost: $15.49/month for standard streaming

          10. Pornhub Premium

          The internet’s hottest club is Pornhub—it has everything. Still, when it comes to free porn, especially from tube sites that aggregate everything from cam sites to big-name studios, you’re right to be a little wary before clicking anything. Pornhub Premium, the biggest adult site’s paid option, gives you access to every sort of video you could possibly imagine for a pretty reasonable monthly fee. The benefit to paying for your porn is twofold: You’re free to stream ad-free video and download whatever you’d like without effectively busting your laptop, and you’re paying for your product to fairly compensate sex workers and other industry professionals. Win-win.

          Cost: Free one-week trial membership, then $14.99/month or $143.88/year

          11. Dipsea

          Okay, another W for all of you audio erotica fans: Dispea.

          You’ve probably noticed how free forums like Reddit are overwhelmingly filled with male-centric stories and scripts with low-quality audio. But Dipsea is a women-founded app that serves “sexy audio stories that set the mood and spark your imagination.” The stories are high-quality, inclusive, and cut to fit your schedule—options vary from three-minute clips to whole hour-long stories to settle in with (or draw inspo from with a partner).

          You can choose from stories with varying degrees of explicitness from fairly tame stories of casual voyeurism, to hot and heavy threesomes, to guided solo-sex sessions. Some stories are available for free before you subscribe, but an annual subscription gives you access to hundreds of existing audio stories and three new stories every week.

          Cost: $12.99/month or $59.99/year subscription

          12. Lust Cinema

          Remember XConfessions? Lust Cinema is founded by the same feminist adult filmmaker, Erika Lust. Here, you can expect porn that leaves out the impossible body standards—and often racist or sexist fetishizations—to focus on realistic, inclusive, hot sex, no matter what you’re into. Lust’s HD films recenter tired porn narratives through a sex-positive, feminist lens. Not only are downloads from the site totally reliable and ad-free, but they also adhere to ethical standards. Every performer is fairly compensated for their work and receives the benefits any other full-time employee would.

          Cost: $34.95 for one month, $23.50 for three months, $11.50 for 12 months

          13. Literotica

Literotica has a huge selection of categories, from erotic couplings, first-time stories, and masturbation, to erotic horror and fetish. And if you’re feeling particularly *inspired* after reading a few, the site accepts submissions and regularly holds erotic story contests.

          14. CrashPad Series

          The CrashPad Series has been praised for its ethical treatment of performers and representation of queer sexuality. Queer filmmaker Shine Louise Houston of Pink & White Productions casts IRL people and couples who identify as dykes and lesbians; femme, masculine, cis or trans women; trans men, people of color; people of all sizes; older queer folks; and people with disabilities. What makes the site stand out is the fact that performers are doing exactly what they want on camera. This makes for a video series that features real, consensual sex, BDSM and kink, a lot of orgasms, and a lot of communication. It’s not only refreshing and necessary but also super hot.

          Cost: $9.99/month for a one-year subscription, $23.33/month for three months, $25 for one month

          15. Sweetheart Audio

          16. Bright Desire

          A subscription to the ad-free, spyware-free, cliché-free site Bright Desire guarantees you access to “smart, sensual sex” that’s made to “engage your mind as well as your heart and libido.” That means real individuals, couples, and groups who get it on just as they might in real life, if real life were always nicely lit and shot artistically. There are tons of sex-positive videos to choose from, including lesbian scenes, solo-sex quickies, partner role-playing, phone-sex scenes, and threesomes.

          Cost: $37.95 for 90 days, $22.95 for the first 30 days then $9.95 recurring every month

          17. OnlyFans

          When OnlyFans announced in August 2021 that it would be banning “explicit” content from its platform, the general populace did a double-take (Isn’t that kinda…all that OnlyFans is for??) and sex workers everywhere felt the repercussions of the decision. And while technically OnlyFans is not a porn site, it is swimming in the stuff—and a lot of it may actually be safer than traditional porn tube sites. On OnlyFans, you can interact with porn performers and adult content creators directly, subscribing to their original work instead of seeing it secondhand on sketchy tube sites. This means the pay is often more equitable and creators have more control over what content is available to the public. Come here for great content of all kinds, especially amateur.

          Cost: It varies depending upon your subscriptions.
