During the decade before I discovered this community, I was involved with a large group of writers who wrote fan fiction. Basically people wrote their own stories about the characters in famous books, movies, and TV series. The most popular universes to write about in my group were Star Trek, Star Wars, Tolkien, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who. This practice was begun by Victorian Era women who wrote additional romantic adventures for the characters in 19th Century British romance novels and traded them with each other and even had conventions to share their work. It is a good way to learn to write, because the hard work of character development and inventing a believable universe to place your story in is done for you, so you can just work on action and dialog.
About 90% of those doing the writing and reading were women, of all ages, literally from teens to old grannies. One of the popular styles is called Slash, which refers to using a slash between two character's names, to signify the protagonists in the description, the original being a Kirk/Spock homoerotic drama, which kicked off the fad in a Star Trek fan fiction story in the early days of the www. The basic formula for Slash is to take two characters from a given universe, who are both straight and of the same sex, and write homoerotic porn about their relationship. The vast majority of those writing and reviewing this style were women.
One of the things I discovered in a writing community of mostly women, is just how sex crazed they are, and how, when unconstrained by editors, teachers, or people they know seeing their work, a large fraction of what they write and prefer to read is straight up porn. And women seem to delight in all pairings, M/M, M/F, F/F, F/F/M, M/F/F, and of course, the large hot tub cluster fuck. And, these were normal, respectable, well educated women, who wrote quite well.
Take the, "I'm a good girl, I don't do stuff like that.", posturing with a grain of salt. They do it in their fantasies.
