How do you find the best free porn online? Many people have their favorite aggregating services, including Pornhub, RedTube, and Porn MD, but as with most things, choosing porn gets easier when you crowd-source the search. Reddit, hosts tens of thousands of discussion boards, including many devoted to cataloging and discussing “NSFW” (not safe for work) porn.

Of course, because a huge swath of Reddit likes to collect and share porn, the boards have become overloaded with the same boring images, GIFs, and video clips. Don’t endlessly click through r/nsfw looking for whatever it is you know gets you off.

Here’s your guide to Reddit’s porn offerings. By the way, we’re ignoring r/GoneWild (and most of r/GoneWild’s spin-off boards) and r/LadyBoners for being too obvious, though the women who post to them are simply doing a public service. We also left out r/WatchItForthePlot for being degrading to performers. All the images in this post are safe for work. This depends, however, on how buttoned-up your workplace is — just know, this article doesn’t contain naked photos. Now that our disclaimer is out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff.

If You Want to Look at Men

r/chickflixxx

Subscribers: 53,158

Mostly involves: emotional porn, homemade videos, requests for specific kinks, and vocal men.

Excuse the subreddit’s title: though r/chickflixxx began as a subreddit for straight women to share their favorite porn videos; it’s come to serve groups more diverse than simply “chicks.” Anyone who wants to watch porn in which women aren’t abused or unhappy will enjoy what r/chickflixxx has going on.

r/LadyBonersGW

Subscribers: 84,338

Mostly involves: selfies taken by men in various states of undress and videos of men masturbating.

Vastly superior to r/LadyBoners, r/LadyBonersGW is the woman-serving off-shoot board inspired by Reddit’s uber-popular “GoneWild.” Both subreddits let anonymous users upload photos of themselves either naked or scantily clad. Interestingly, the mods of r/LadyBonersGW only allow photo submissions in which most of a subject’s face is visible. There are some sporadic GIFs, but for the most part, the board is populated with selfies.

r/BrosLikeUs

Subscribers: 27,511

Mostly involves: athletic, masculine dudes posing in sexy situations, and sometimes having sex with other men.

Anybody who’s attracted to men will likely enjoy this subreddit, which is full to the brim with bored men in the military posting shirtless photos for karma.

r/postorgasm

Subscribers: 24,500

Mostly involves: video clips and audio of men having their genitals stimulated for a long period after they’ve already orgasmed. The most popular clips follow men as their voices get a little higher, and “whimpering” gets a clip upvoted.

The fetish term used most often by redditors on r/postorgasm is “post-orgasm torture,” and the character of videos ranges from female dominatrixes demanding more and more ejaculate from their subordinates, all the way to loving couples in which the woman coaxes her male partner into multiple orgasms. This phenomenon does involve a bit of pain, and you can hear it in the subjects’ voices. Because it’s rare for a male pornstar to have a vocal orgasm; most women (and gay men) looking to hear a guy finish come to subreddits like this.

If You Want to Look at Women

r/gettingherselfoff

Subscribers: 105,750

Mostly involves: videos and GIFs of women masturbating by themselves.

This homemade porn subreddit doubles as instructional, if you can find the posts in which women are masturbating to climax without faking their orgasms for the sake of a male viewer. Notice how none of the women are jackhammering dildos into their vaginas over and over for two minutes? Food for thought.

r/GoneMild

Subscribers: 94,911

Mostly involves: self-uploaded anonymous images of women in various states of undress.

It’s rare to see vaginas or anuses the way one sees on a board like r/GoneWild. These girls are more flirtatious than aggressive, and they tend to communicate with users in a friendly way down in the comments.

Porn so clear, it'll blow your mind!

r/60FPSPORN

Subscribers: 222,764

Mostly involves: high definition clips of porn films and high resolution GIFs.

Though this board seems to want to focus on realism, touting images so high quality that you can almost imagine you’re there, it doesn’t really offer much other than professional POV videos. If you’re into watching someone else’s penis enter a hairless woman who doesn’t look like she’s enjoying it, but you want the clip to be extremely well-rendered … this is your sweet spot.

r/holdthemoan

Subscribers: 425,127

Mostly involves: women having sex in public or socially stifling situations in which they can’t let on that they’re aroused.

This subreddit aims to please both users with public-sex fetishes and those who like to watch multiple emotions on a woman’s face. You can also filter your results by degree of riskiness.

r/HappyEmbarrassedGirls

Subscribers: 202,840

Mostly involves: homemade clips and GIFs, in addition to clips from movies in which women are naked, doing something silly, and/or are shy about it.

Women who genuinely smile in pornography are rare — perhaps because the porn industry doesn’t value the well-being of its female performers — but r/HappyEmbarrassedGirls proves there’s a huge demographic of men and women who want to see women fuck joyfully.

r/SexyButNotPorn

Subscribers: 60,217

Mostly involves: celebrity photos and home-made selfies of women whose images are definitely arousing but can’t really be classified as pornographic.

Justice Stewart said famously in 1964 of pornography, “I know it when I see it.” The tens of thousands who subscribe to r/SexyButNotporn enjoy contesting that definition by finding and sharing images that tow the line.

WtSSTaDaMiT
WtSSTaDaMiT, aka When the Sun Shines Through a Dress and Makes It Translucent

r/WtSSTaDaMiT

Subscribers: 115,714

Mostly involves: photos of women wearing dresses and standing in front of a light source, which makes the fabric of their dresses see-through.

r/WtSSTaDaMiT stands for When the Sun Shines Through a Dress and Makes It Translucent, which is exactly what it sounds like. Photos and GIFs on this subreddit are arousing without being violent or crude.

r/joi, aka Jerk Off Instructions

Subscribers: 38,796

Mostly involves: videos of women lovingly encouraging you to masturbate to completion.

Most porn-enthusiast redditors refer users asking for “uplifting” or “wholesome” porn to r/joi, because the women in the subreddit’s clips are usually playing a supportive and affectionate role toward the viewer. When you watch a r/joi video, you’re not some horny, mindless animal, you’re someone’s boyfriend.

If You’re Just Kinda Down in General

r/NSFW411

Subscribers: 85,146

Mostly involves: curious, horny people asking other porn enthusiasts if their kinks are represented in videos.

Think you might be into watching a certain situation, but you’re not sure if that exists? User questions on the board include, “is there a subreddit for lapdance videos?” and, “Is there a subreddit for uplifting porn like where the girl gives you compliments and cares for you and stuff?”

r/PassionX

Subscribers: 83,503

Mostly involves: pornstars who act as if they are overcome with the need to have sex and some romantic scenes from movies, especially enthusiastic homemade videos.

A close cousin of r/chickflixxx, r/PassionX collects videos and GIFs of partners who look obsessed with each other.

r/rule34

Subscribers: 235,007

Mostly involves: insane, erotic depictions of cartoon characters having explicit sex and cosplay.

“Rule 34” decrees that if it exists, there is also porn of it available somewhere on the internet. If you’re aroused, but you want to specifically look at artistically rendered drawings of Velma and Daphne from Scooby Doo making out, r/rule34 is for you.

r/gonewildaudio

Subscribers: 121,524

Mostly involves: audio recordings of anonymous men and women acting out sexual scenarios, usually using a second-person verb tense.

This subreddit is particularly popular among women who just want to hear a man vocally expressing arousal, but there are many, many clips of women acting out sexy monologues.

r/consentacles

Subscribers: 16,669

Mostly involves: drawings and animations of women being penetrated (willingly) by tentacle monsters.

If you’re into hentai, but you’re not into rape scenarios, then first of all, congratulations. Second, you’re going to want to stick to r/consentacles for your porn needs. Perhaps the most surprising part of this subreddit is that most erotic images are part of long storylines. For some reason, hentai fans aren’t satisfied with a mere GIF; they need their porn to involve multiple chapters of emotional build-up.

r/heteroflexible

Subscribers: 13,677

Mostly involves: MMF group sex in which the men sort of interact and double penetration porn.

If you’re interested in porn that walks the line between straightforward bisexual porn (in which everybody fucks everybody) and painfully straight porn (in which no one even notices people of the same gender), try experimenting in this subreddit.

Maybe don't look at r/oculusnsfw around others

r/oculusnsfw

Subscribers: 18,523

Mostly involves: virtual reality pornography ready for the Oculus Rift.

This subreddit is an amusing blend of VR-enthusiasts and horny people who discuss developments in virtual reality tech with as much excitement as they do certain pornstars.

r/pantsu

Subscribers: 29,353

Mostly involves: drawn images of manga-style girls whose skirts are too short.

Hey friend, if you prefer to masturbate while looking at animated women, no one’s here to judge you. There are plenty of anime and manga-themed porn subreddits available, but most involve girls being violently raped or taken advantage of. Most of the women drawn on r/pantsu are adorably surprised that you can see their underwear, or they’re rendered as purposefully showing it to you. Consent, it’s fun! For those with a specific anime fetish, r/Overwatch_Porn is pretty good, too.

cute furry girl
If this picture of an anthropomorphized female fox excites you, you may be a furry!

r/Yiff

Subscribers: 40,048

Mostly involves: drawings and animated GIFs of anthropomorphized animals having sex, otherwise known as “furry porn.”

This subreddit is controversial among furries because many people in the furry subculture don’t believe sexualization has a place in what they do. For furries who enjoy looking at sexual, imaginative scenarios, r/Yiff is the place to do that.
