Why You Need To Try Audio Porn

Why You Need To Try Audio Porn

"Porn is not personal," a male friend told me. Instead, he said, "It's part of my routine, a means to an end." I assumed he meant the end was an orgasm. 


Yet, my first porn experience was deeply personal and comedic. I was about ten years old when my dad rented some tapes from the local VHS store. 


The storeman and my dad must've had a miscommunication. Because my dad went home with a bunch of tapes, thinking they were child-friendly. 


So, one afternoon, I watched one of those tapes alone with the title "Dummy" or something like that. The film was not what I was expecting. The plot involved a ventriloquist who slept with his blonde and blue-eyed fans, which was mortifying. 


That memory was a while back. But the thought lingered—my expectations of sex and what women needed to look like changed. Surely, porn can do better. 


At the start of the pandemic, I discovered audio porn through this Forbes article. and thought maybe there is hope for people who don't like porn. 


So, I know what you're thinking, "How can audio porn improve my sex life?" 

  • Sex is about exploration. Think of audio porn as something you can add to your pleasure bucket list. And, please don't tell me you're too busy to have one!  
  • Have you ever felt like an outsider while watching porn, like you are lurking on people? Well, with audio porn, you are the star of the show. Someone sent me this message on why she loves audio porn, "You can imagine whom you want to be with." You are the director and the actor all at the same time. 
  • For long-distance lovers, you can share episodes to stay connected intimately. I've heard of couples who send voice notes as well. (Just please make sure it's secure and someone you trust.)
  • Perhaps, you and your partner's sex life is getting stale. Introduce something new through audio porn. 
  • Are you awkward about your dirty talk? Audio porn is the best teacher. 

So, perhaps, I've convinced you, and you're thinking, "Ok, give it to me. How do I get started?" There's a wave of audio porn popping up, but here are the top 4 apps and sites: 


Dipsea, founded in 2018, is a female-founded startup in San Francisco, California. I would imagine that if Gwyneth Paltrow ever got into audio porn, she would have this visually pretty app or website on her phone. Think of this as the library of your fantasies with 500 audio stories. You'll get creatively scripted stories around threesomes, office tristes, and teacher-student romance, every fantasy you've ever had. 


Price: USD 59.99 / year or USD 12.99 / month with a free trial  

Tip: Try listening to a story with a partner or sending it to a long-distance lover. 


Quinn is the YouTube of audio porn. And guess what, they have a 50% men and 50% women split of their audience, approximately 300,000 subscribers. Their founder is Caroline Spiegel, a 20-something Stanford student and sister of Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel. 


Their popular episodes are those with accents. One of their most-listened episodes is called "Three Gates," narrated by Harry, with a British accent, guiding you through the three different orgasms one experiences in masturbation. 


Price: USD 36/year or USD 5/month with a free trial

Tip: Try solo-play with Harry guiding you! Or find an accent you like if British accents are not your thing.  


Ferly hails itself as the audio guide to mindful sex. The app focuses more on one's challenges: desire for sex and orgasms, pain-free sex, getting out of the head and into the body, sexual confidence, and ditching shame. I'd think of this app as the headspace of sexual wellness with its guided practices, audio stories and theory sessions. If you're an overthinker or need more confidence, this app is for you.  


Price: USD 78 / year or USD 12 / a month with a free trial

Tip: Try picking one aspect you want to work on in your sex life and listen to those guided practices. 


Tumblr used to be the platform where people would upload photographs and artwork. Nowadays, you can also find free user-submitted audio porn. You get a real and amateur tone here. But if you like less scripted, this is for you.  You can start with blogs like Let Me Hear ItSounds of Pleasure , and  Audio Orgasm .

In writing this blog, I recalled over the years what people had told me about porn:   


"It just doesn't do it for me. It's unrealistic and vulgar." 

"Isn't it cheating if he is watching porn by himself?" 

"It's boring, almost robotic." 

"It's all the same thing, predictable." 


Audio porn can make us think otherwise. Last December 2021, Pornhub released a survey showing Filipinos spend about 11 minutes on their site. That's longer than your average 10-minute meditation practice. 


So, perhaps, one's porn experience doesn't have to be like my ventriloquist incident. Instead, it can be a practice that will make you more imaginative and present in your sex life. 


So go ahead, put on your earphones and try it out, even for just 10 minutes.
