Reviewed: 3 Sex-Positive Erotic Film Sites for Diverse Couples

“Pleasure is not selfish. It is not indulgent. And it is never a waste of time.” - CRAVE

Finding erotica that turns you both on and that you enjoy reading, watching, or listening to together can sometimes be challenging – but also fun! If you’re Black, brown, or any other person of color; someone who identifies as LGBTQ, fat, or disabled; or if you’re in an interracial/mixed relationship, finding quality erotic content that you both enjoy and feel represented in, can be downright depressing.

Thankfully the genre is growing up, and more and more diverse sex-positive websites are popping up all the time!

If you’re new to sex-positive ethical porn and erotic films, we’ve listed a few examples worth exploring below. As a couple, we check off more than a few of the boxes above, so we’re always on the lookout for great new content and producers. Be sure to check back often, we’re just getting started!

Quick heads up: All the sites listed here are pay-to-play. Not only because it’s the right and ethical thing to do, but because the quality and content are worth it.

1a. XConfessions

What Sherri (She) Likes About It:

I’m a sucker for good production with seductive visuals and a good storyline, and XConfessions is hands-down the BEST in the biz! I love how effortless it is to get lost in the fantasy worlds Erika creates, and that’s partly because it’s not difficult to imagine you’re watching real couples, throuples (and more) having real sex, and having a great time. Also, being in an interracial relationship (Black man/White woman), I truly appreciate how the couples who look like us aren’t fetishized or stereotyped. For the most part, we’re just like everyone else, and Erika gets that!

What Reuben (He) Likes About It:

Though she’s not a PoC, Erika Lust has really thought deeply about how her platform will depict people of color. She’s done an amazing job of capturing interracial relationships, especially mixed relationships between Black and White couples and mixed-race groups. Regardless of ethnicity and/or whether the leading cast is straight size (re: skinny/thin) or thicc (re: curvy/fat), all of her films are focused on high production value and quality narrative. I really appreciate how the actors are presented on screen and I’m always looking forward to the platform’s upcoming release. Erika clearly loves the genre and has a keen eye on capturing the beauty of the actors in her films and it shows every time.

1b. EroticFilms

Another of Erika Lust’s sites, EroticFilms is a curation of the best in indie adult cinema from around the world. New subscriptions are temporarily disabled until February when EroticFilms will be re-launching as a new platform for softer, more erotic content.


2. MakeLoveNotPorn (MLNP)

“MakeLoveNotPorn is Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference.” – Founder, Cindy Gallop

MLNP prides itself on being the world’s first user-generated, human-curated social sex video-sharing platform, celebrating real couples having real sex. This includes real bodies, real love, real feelings, real laughs, real messiness, and everything in between!

You might also like to know: MakeLoveNotPorn stars retain ownership of their videos, and can remove them at any time. All income is split 50/50 with the content creators. The site doesn’t have traditional categories or film names, so it can be tricky to get around, specifically when seeking out films featuring folks who might share similar identities and experiences to your own. For that, you may find the site’s Licktionary helpful.

Subscription Options: Each video is $5 to rent and is yours for three weeks. Other options include: $10 for 5 videos (yours for 30 days), $30 for 30 videos (yours for 30 days), and $50 for 50 videos (yours for 30 days)

What She Likes About It:

I found MLNP to be great for starting deep conversations with my husband, and on occasion a good slow burn. What I probably appreciated most was what we learned about ourselves, both individually and as a couple while watching the films. When I first tried MLNP I hadn’t watched any erotic films in a long time. I had pretty much sworn them off entirely. So MLNP was a breath of fresh air for me. Also, watching other real couples do it like they do on the Discovery channel, LOL, stretch marks, cellulite and all, made me see my own body in a whole new light, and that felt (and continues to feel) really, really good. So huge shout out to Cindy for fighting to make real-world sex a normal part of the conversation, and to all the brave couples who allow the rest of us to be flies on your wall!

What He Likes About It:

MLNP stars hit it the way I imagine most of us do, they’re just kinky enough to put it all out there. And while I think the platform def needs more representation from Black and Brown folks, I know it’s something that’s important to Cindy and her team, so I believe it’s something that’ll continue to work itself out as the list of Make Love Not Porn Stars continues to grow. It’s def a must add if you’ve got kids who are of age and you wanna ensure they get access to erotica that’s not gonna warp their perception of sexuality, sensuality, and especially how women are portrayed on screen. It’s a great project for folks from all different places and with all levels of experience to see human sexuality close up and with way less filters on than is ordinarily seen in the genre. Big ups to this project!

Positively Sexy Plus-Size Erotica

In Their Own Words: Shape of Beauty showcases hot curvy girls and plump models as the muses of adoration and lust that they really are. This highly stylized fashion-inspired series is the ultimate body worship experience, presenting a mix of glamorous hardcore sex, BBW legends and fresh faces with full figures.

You might also like to know: Shape of Beauty is an Adult Time Original Series, so when you purchase a subscription you are actually purchasing a full-access pass to the entire Adult Time catalog. This review is for Shape of Beauty only.

Subscription Options: 3 Day Trial (streaming only): $2.95; 30 Days (streaming only): $19.95/mo; 30 Days (streaming + downloads): $29.95/mo; and 365 Days (streaming + downloads): $9.95/mo

What She Likes About It:

What drew me to Shape of Beauty, honestly is my husband’s love of curves. We’ve tried other sites that feature curvy girls but had a hard time getting past the stereotypical mainstream aesthetic, fetishization, and toxic masculinity. Shape of Beauty looked to be different, so we gave it a try. It’s not perfect, but it’s a huge step in the right direction. Overall, I would give it a 6.5 out of 10 because the few we enjoyed, we really enjoyed, and I would like to see more. I appreciate the glamor, the storytelling, and the obvious adoration of my curvacious sisters! If you’re used to mainstream BBW films and are looking for something different, I think you’ll really appreciate it. If your go-to sources for erotica look more like the other sites on this list, I suspect you’ll feel similar to what I felt – in that case, I recommend going for the 30 Days with downloads, download the ones you like, and wait for them to release more ;)

What He Likes About It:

When Sherri first told me about Shape of Beauty, I had a similar reaction to when I first heard Drake say “I like my girls BBW” in the song ONLY. You feel seen when you see the niche treated with respect on its name! I was hoping for a site where the performers are shown as the beautiful, erotic, delicious people I see them to be and nothing less. And in that area, Shape of Beauty does not disappoint. All of the performers are filmed as the beautiful people they are. They don’t attempt to hide “problem areas” or any other frustrating techniques that filmmakers who don’t themselves appreciate a genre will attempt. It was such a breath of fresh air – filmmakers who see what I see when they’re working with curvy women. We need more of that.

That being said, they don’t have a lotta content in this specific channel, only about 12 videos, and even then, of the small selection they do have in their library, some still suffer from the same stereotypical shit in how the dude’s interact with the women. And those are the ones that keep us looking for alternative creators. Fortunately, though, there are a few gems, and those are in my list of faves across platforms. With those in particular, I appreciate that the performers actually seem to like each other, appreciate each others beauty, and genuinely seem to enjoy performing together – simple things like eye contact, affection, and tender / passionate kissing make a world of difference.
