    The porn industry is often considered a man’s world — it’s men who direct, produce, and consume porn, right? Well, not so fast. While historically, the industry has been propelled by men, it’s rapidly changing; driven by smart, savvy, sexy women who know what they want. Producers, entrepreneurs, actresses, directors, and authors, women are claiming their place in the world of sexiness in big ways.

    As we've pointed out before, porn isn't just one thing — there's a huge variety of porn with a huge variety of perspectives, body types, and sexualities out there. And none are necessarily all good or all bad.

    And as far as the women who work in the industry, both in front of and behind the camera, there's a real range of personalities and ideas there, too. Especially when it comes to the eight game-changers we're talking about today. Some are ardent feminists, some view porn as an educational space, some write about their experiences with sincerity and candor — but all further the conversation about how women relate sexually to their bodies, their partners, and the porn industry in general. These women are making waves in a big way, and you want to pay attention.
