Audio Porn: A Complete Guide to Audio Erotica

If we feast with our eyes, how come audio porn is becoming so popular?

Yes, you read right. Audio porn; a genre of adult content that is based solely on the sounds and narratives of sex rather than the visuals. It may sound pretty old-school but audio porn is growing in popularity and covers a wide range of sub genres including explicit clips of sex to erotic confessions and the phenomenon that is ASMR. Even the immensely popular tube hosting sites like Pornhub has clips and content that feature audio clips, but what is all about?

In this feature, we take a look at exactly what audio porn is and what kind of sub-genres you can find within this category. We’ll also give you some background about why (and with whom) this adult content is proving popular plus where you can find the best audio porn.

What is Audio Porn?

Though it sounds quite a simple category, audio porn actually covers quite a diverse range of content. From the ultra-trendy ASMR and erotic narratives to sound files of couples having sex and even saucy confessions.

The genre is pretty popular with women but has, and is gaining, fans from a broad selection of men and women across the world.

So, what exactly can you expect from ‘audio’ porn?

ASMR

Also known as whisper porn, ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Median Response and refers to the strange phenomenon we experience when we get a tingly sensation around our head, neck and spine. Often accompanied by an involuntary shiver or goosebumps, the feeling for some is on a par with an orgasm and is pretty addictive when you break into it.

As a result, adult content creators have been focusing on producing porn that triggers this response, or whisper porn. The kind of clips you can find are both audio and visual and primarily feature people whispering but can also include JOI (Jerk Off Instructions), moaning, dirty talk and more fetish content.

You can find a more detailed guide to the world of ASMR Whisper Porn in one of our recent features. Here you can find a full description of ASMR adult content as well as a selection of sites you can find this kind of porn on.

Erotic Confessions

Listening to the sound of someone confessing a dirty secret is not a new thing, after all Catholic priests have been doing this for years! This sub-genre of audio porn is very popular and expands the kind of content that has graced the ‘Reader’s Confessions’ and letters pages of top shelf magazines for years.

Whilst the majority of the content produced for this kind of content is based on fantasy and is professionally created within a studio, it is just as popular as an amateur as ‘real-life’ confessions.

Explicit Sound Clips

In an age when we can access as much visual pornographic content as we want and this can be both hardcore and extreme, it seems strange to discover that simple audio files of sex are so popular.

However, it is often said that watching this kind of material with the sound off can be pretty dull yet the opposite is definitely not true. In fact, there is something extremely arousing and voyeuristic about listening to someone have sex rather than simply watching it.

Instead of reducing your enjoyment of the porn, explicit sound clips actually heighten the experience in the same way as when being blindfolded in the bedroom focuses the sensation of other senses.

Again, some content is specifically produced for this genre where the participants provide more audio detail and dirty talk whilst other clips have simply been isolated from pre-existing porn files.

JOI

JOI is a very popular sub-genre of porn for men across visual content and now in audio form. It stands for ‘Jerk Off Instructions’ and centers on the premise of a femdom (typically) giving the viewer (or, in this case, listener) instructions on masturbating. It plays on the appeal of the dominatrix and edging.

Narratives

A kind of a crossover of both explicit audio files and literature, think of this kind of porn as an audio-described presentation for people who are visually impaired.

This kind of content is not so much a ‘genre’ of audio porn but a format. Nevertheless, these clips are also attracting good audiences.

Literature

With so little time on our hands to pick up a book, audio porn can also be used to cover erotic fiction that has been produced for audio. There is no end of steamy novels, books and fiction, many of which are available to listen to, even on mainstream platforms like Audible.

You can find a feature review of 20 of the most famous erotic novels here on Red Light Network but there are many more available including audio versions of fan fiction through sites like Literotica.

Why is Audio Porn So Popular?

There is a quote by the British politician Woodrow Wyatt that says “a man falls in love through his eyes whilst a woman falls in love through her ears”. There is a lot of truth in this and men are known to be more visually stimulated whilst women rely more on their own imagination and other senses, including auditory. In short, men are shallow.

Whilst there are obviously going to be lots of men (and women) who would disagree with this, the generalization rings true when it comes to the popularity of audio porn being predominantly down to it attracting a greater female audience.

Some of this can be attributed to the ethics of porn when it comes to the feminist argument over ‘female’ stereotypes. What we mean by this is that with audio porn, it doesn’t matter if the ladies are ‘plus-sized’ or flat chested. When we remove the visuals, those ‘norms’ that we see in porn are no longer relevant and allow us to use our imaginations about the people taking part.

Mainstream porn has long had a negative reputation for being sexist, racist and exploitative so any move away from this kind of adult content production is being embraced by ethical consumers. Audio porn ticks the boxes of this moral issue as it is generally being produced by independent studios and amateurs, many of whom are women.

You can read more about the issues of feminism in the adult industry and the rise of sites that are breaking the mould against patriarchal porn in one of our latest features.

Audio porn is also an excellent way to enjoy adult content more discreetly. Yes, aside from the tell-tale erection or giveaway fidgeting, you could quite easily listen to porn on your headphones whilst on the subway or at work; not something you could get away with when it comes to NSFW video content.

Another thing which audio porn offers that visual stimulation doesn’t is the ability to use our imaginations. With regular pornography, the focus is on what the action looks like which means we are being spoon fed things like the size of a cock, the shape of a pussy, the color of the skin and the look of the main performers. Audio allows your mind to fill in the gaps, so to speak, and it can be much easier to place yourself at the heart of the action than by simply watching other people participate.

It’s just like when you read a good book and picture the hero in a specific way only to find that the film version features an actor you would never have cast in the role. Audio gives you more control in visualizing the action to suit your own tastes; et voila, customized porn.

At its heart, visual porn is a very passive way to enjoy your content; you simply watch. With audio porn, your mind is engaged and it is up to you to create the action in your head.

Anonymity is also anther key feature of audio porn that makes it more popular to produce. Unlike with visual porn, there are very few people who would be able to identify the participants in a sound clip. This means more and more people feel uninhibited enough to produce their own porn and to release it to the world. A lack of inhibitions means more creativity and freedom when it comes to the fantasies being explored through audio porn. Great for us!

Lastly, audio porn satisfies those fetishists that are more aural in their approach to eroticism. The fact is that some of us are more turned on by dirty talk than by dirty deeds, find a good telephone voice more stimulating than a cute ass or have simply become immune to the abundance of hyper-visual porn available on the net.

Best Audio Porn Sites

Whether you are a card-carrying audiophile, a curious voyeur, ethical porn-consumer or just want to enjoy adult content in stealth mode, we bring you our selection of the best audio porn sites.

Aural Joy

https://auraljoy.com/

best audio porn sites aural joy

Aural Joy is a community site where content is curated by user-submissions; so, all amateur stuff here. However, the quality of the recordings is pretty good and covers a wide range of tastes from ASMR to dirty talk, erotic fiction to sexy sound files.

Content is organised by ‘Female’, ‘Male’ or ‘Couple’ and there is also a Tag cloud where you can filter by popular keywords. However, the site has no search facility which at the moment isn’t a huge issue because there are only a few hundred clips.

As submissions build, this will become a major flaw and, we hope, one that will be addressed by the site’s owners.

Aural Honey

https://auralhoney.com/

best audio porn sites aural honey

The tagline of ‘English honey flavour audio roleplay, fuelled by tea and biscuits’ doesn’t do this site much justice when it comes to an accurate description.

There are 26 ‘Categories’, each with a few audio files being around 15-30 minutes long. Files are almost professionally recorded with great sound quality and feature the mellifluous voice of a honeyed woman offering audio experiences such as:

  • I’m such a little slut for you (Submissive Honey)
  • The Silent Treatment (Honey GFE)
  • Awkward Love Ninja (Friends to Lovers)
  • Watching You Sleep (Love Confessions)

The content here is well crafted and is mostly fantasy role play with some sounds, moans and dirty talk. It fits the category of ASMR in places with hushed and whispered tones delivering strong sexy narratives with expert sensuality.

Quinn

https://tryquinn.com/listen/

Another site featuring anonymous user submissions, Quinn has both text and audio stories, confessions and other erotic writing to enjoy.

What’s particularly nice about this site is that all the content is well tagged and there are some useful filters to help you sort by keyword, creator and popularity.

You can submit your own or just browse through those that have been uploaded by other users.

Listen to Po

www.listentopo.com

best audio porn sites listen to po

Listen to Po purports to be the internet’s only sex audio site but this is blatantly untrue as we can attest from this list. However, the site does offer the sale of a bundle of sex audio files totaling five hours of sonic pleasure.

It’s a mixed bag of content but one that covers most tastes in 110 individual tracks.

You can get a preview on the site but to download these clips you will need to pay $5 through PayPal.

Kiss Me Quick Erotica

https://kisstherose.libsyn.com/

This selection is a podcast produced by Rose Caraway which has over seven years of archive audio files to listen to. Though there are some general broadcasts, most focus on sexuality and feature reviews and excerpts for erotic fiction.

This is not audio porn as such but a nice way to find some new content if you fancy something a little less steamy to listen to on your commute.

Girl on the Net

www.girlonthenet.com/audio-porn/

best audio porn sites girl on the net

A blog site by a British woman who wants to break the stigma of shame around women’s sexuality, Girl on the Net features some great audio porn as well as intelligent and well thought out guest blogs, erotic stories and feature pieces.

The archive of audio porn is pretty diverse and covers titles such as:

  • ‘I’ve had a hard day/ Fuck my face’
  • ‘By the time my coffee is cold, he’ll have fucked her’
  • ‘The first spanking I ever had’
  • ‘Massive dildo orgy; fucked with huge four cocks’.

There is something about the English accent accompanying these files which makes them even more naughty and our host certainly delivers on the steam.

There are over 100 files to listen to for free.

Orgasm Sound Library

https://orgasmsoundlibrary.com/#gallery

best audio porn sites orgasm library

A project operated by Bijoux Indiscrets (a brand of OhMiBod), this library features the 100% authentic audio files of women having an orgasm.

The research project itself focuses on how fiction conditions the expectation of desire and influences sexual behavior. The study is pretty interesting and informative but it is the Orgasm Sound Library that accompanied this research which will appeal to audio porn fans.

Free to enjoy and wholly anonymous, clips range from a few seconds to a minute or so in length and are as varied as the women who are sharing them. It’s a pretty addictive little site with some very impressive cum noises.

You can even get involved by uploading your own orgasm clip.

Reddit

Reddit is a great repository for adult content and their subreddit communities offer some niche audio porn. There are lots of small groups where redditors share their content as well as ideas for audio porn but our favorites are:

  • r/GoneWildAudio – with over 301k members, this is one of the larger audio porn groups on Reddit and is a place to submit content of yourself or with a partner. There are some brilliant files to listen to here and a lot of teasing script to lure you in.
  • r/MoanLikeaGirl – a small group with just a few hundred members, this subreddit offers female driven content where submissions focus on the ‘inner slut’. Expect whimpers, moans and begging as well as plenty of filthy talk.
  • r/pillowtalkaudio – a more diverse group with 28k members, the submissions here vary from book readings to ASMR, recordings of role play and relaxing (not explicit) content. Mainly vanilla and erotic, these are all amateur audio files.

Literotica

www.literotica.com/c/audio-sex-stories

best audio porn sites literotica

Best known for its erotic literature, Literotica has been hosting amateur adult content since 1998 and is a powerhouse for saucy fiction. However, just like Amazon offering both Kindle and Audible, Literotica knows that some of its audience prefer to listen rather than read.

As a result, you can find a large selection of adult content on the site that has been recorded for audio.

There are almost 1000 sex stories (or text with audio) to choose from and the site’s star rating system means you can quickly see those that have been well received. The content here is widely varied meaning you can just as easily find fetish and kink audio files as you can vanilla or erotic audio fiction.

Once again, all content is produced by amateurs and is user-submitted. Registering an account is free and gives you access to user comments and allows you to rate the stories you download as well as store your favorites in your profile.

Lush Stories

www.lushstories.com/audio-stories.aspx

A site that is similar to Literotica, Lush Stories is all about curating user submitted erotic stories. Just like its rival, Lush Stories has created an ‘Audio Stories’ category to offer its members the opportunity of listening to porn rather than just reading it.

Lush Stories also has a good user review and rating system so you can find the best content and there is a diverse range of material on offer there to enjoy.

Another site similar to both Literotica and Lush Stories where you can listen to audio versions of erotic fiction is eSensual Books (Audio).

Tumblr

Despite the fear that the changes to Tumblr’s Ts and Cs would result in a widespread ban on porn across their site, you can still find plenty of NSFW content. Included with this are many micro-blogs that are dedicated to the art of audio porn.

Among these are some of our own favorites, the content of which is fairly self-explanatory:

Player FM

https://player.fm/series/sexy-erotic-audio-porn

best audio porn sites player fm

A small collection of explicit sex audio clips, there are no stories here and not much dialogue. Instead, you get the heavy breathing, the moaning and the thwapping sounds of couples doing the dirty.

Pornhub

www.pornhub.com/video/search?search=audio+only

And finally, you can find over 1100 audio only clips on the world’s largest porn tube hosting site, some of which are over 30 minutes long and professionally recorded.

Sub-categories range from erotic stories to jerk off instructions, phone sex to ASMR.
