Tumblr, a blogging site, is best known for the amusing screen shots of conversations that end up on other websites such as Buzzfeed and Twitter.It's a broad church – hosting moving pictures (Gifs) of cats, babies, pizza and Harry Potter memes.Lots of blogs are a mix of graphic clips, personal blogs about life and of course, jokes about Game of Thrones. The breadth is one of the major things that draws women to Tumblr for arousal.
Anything that your boyfriend reblogs – (that’s Tumblr speak for posting a photo on his own page - that you find tempting), you can reblog too, or discuss later.
And anything that you find distinctly unappealing can be cordially ignored.
The sight of a twenty-something woman staring at her phone couldn’t be less shocking.
But it might interest you to know that whilst the woman sitting across from you at lunch might be checking her bank balance or Instagramming her breakfast , it’s equally possible that she might be perusing her very own perfectly collated collection of porn.
This combination of literary and visual porn is better geared towards a female audience.
There’s also something kindly and unthreatening about the way that Tumblr presents porn.
The only difference is that instead of keeping magazines under our beds, we can store hi-res images in an app. Tumblr can be an easy tool to use for fantasy sharing between partners.
The quality of these images is high, the people are attractive and the writing is some of the best ‘literotica’’ on the internet. Even if you’re not exactly shy when it comes to discussing your dreams, it does take any potential awkwardness out of the encounter.
Which means that a staggering one in 10 of its blogs contained images of people doing the nasty. When I quizzed a group of my fellow twenty something women about why Tumblr porn was having a moment – ease of use was the common theme in their responses.
