Is M/M Slash Like Pseudo-Lesbian Porn Produced for Straight Men?|
Here via metafandom:Women tend to insert themselves in the scene by imagining themselves as one or the other of the men (one reader said to me "I can be Logan fucking Scott or Scott being fucked by Logan and I can switch back and forth whenever I want to" - I think that's a common sentiment) or by imagining themselves as acknowledged observers (i.e. the men are letting the woman watch them). My impression is that men tend to insert themselves into the scene by imagining themselves joining the two women, or the women *stopping* and one of them having sex with the man.
I quite often see this claim being made by female slashers who are trying to distinguish themselves from men who are aroused by female/female sex (Declaration, I am one) and I don't know where it comes from, since it's totally alien to my feelings on the issue. A few years ago, it made me write a post
trying to explore what I felt myself or other explanations I thought would be plausible (one of which you already came up with).
