Is M/M Slash Like Pseudo-Lesbian Porn Produced for Straight Men?|

As I said elsewhere I'm certainly not saying that pseudo-lesbian porn and slash are analogous, and in fact this post is mostly about differences. The reason I'm comparing them is that when first introduced to slash it's the comparison that occurred to me, and it's the comparison that one hears a lot, and I thought it worth exploring the ways they are the same or different.
As to a true analog to slash among straight male culture or a true analog to pseudo-lesbian porn among women, I think there just isn't one and it's largely because of the social gender differences discussed here (both in the post an in comments) that there isn't.
