Is M/M Slash Like Pseudo-Lesbian Porn Produced for Straight Men?|
When I first heard of slash (approximately 4 weeks before I started writing the stuff) it seemed very strange to me.
Okay, as for your generalizations: they mostly seem to match what I've observed, though in a lot of these cases I'm going on very little info and/or vague impressions. For instance I have hardly any data on what men like about pseudo-lesbian porn!
As for me individually ... first of all, I have to confess that I'm still not even sure why slash appeals to me in the first place! It certainly does, there's no doubt about that—but why? Nine years in, I'm still not sure. Nor do I really understand why I'm mostly drawn to m/m slash rather than f/f slash. It's not for the sex (in all honesty I tend to skim over the sex scenes when I'm reading); it's not 'cause I just love reading about men (in non-fanfic literature I prefer reading books with strong female protagonists) ... seriously, I just don't know!

It's all a mystery, really. I think it's very interesting that you prefer strong female protagonists in non-fanfic. I think that some of the fandoms have more interesting male characters, which leads to slash, but that doesn't account for all...
