Australia's Female-Friendly Porn
Hey, they also invented what looks like the world's first sex toy...

The rate of porn consumption is up Down Under, and according to a government study, women are Australia's biggest growth sector. While the average Australian porn connoisseur is a 35-year-old male in a monogamous relationship, hot on his heels are the 17% of female Aussies—up from 10% just over a decade ago—who regularly dabble in the stuff.

And that's changing what's on offer. The Australian authors of the new book The Porn Report, a 190-page probe into the use of X-rated materials Down Under, got down to the nitty-gritty: "We looked at 50 of the best-selling DVDS and videos and what was interesting was how many of them—16—were marketed to women or couples," co-author Alan McKee told the Courier Mail in Unveiling the Myths of Porn, adding that two new varieties of porn, in particular, are on the rise.

One is naturalistic photography that shows "men-and-women-next-door," rather than the Barbie-with-implants we're accustomed to, and the films show everyday people having everyday sex in places like motel rooms. And then there's fantasy porn: The Harlequin of pornography, featuring sophisticated cinemotography, complicated plots, and fleshed-out characters.

Sex toy shaped like the Sydney Opera House?We say, bring on the Aussie exports. After all, Australian aboriginals were behind the invention of the boomerang, which sure looks like a primordial dildo to us. What's next, a sex toy shaped like the Sydney Opera House?

Anyway, if you're interested in following the Aussies' lead, first find out how porn can help (and hurt) a relationship.
