All Girl / Lesbian
Movies spotlighting female masturbation solo scenes are also included as part of the category. Several studios work solely within the lesbian/all-girl genre: Girlfriend Films, Sweetheart Video, Girlsway, Lesbian Provocateur, and more.
Lesbian themes in erotica date all the way back to the frescoes of Ancient Greece. Filmed pornography made all-girl porn part of its standard repertoire from the 1980s onward. As is the case with most genres, much of lesbian porn is designed for a male audience. These movies often feature actors who are not necessarily lesbian by orientation but who perform in such roles in porn. “Most mainstream porn labeled ‘lesbian’ will feature straight or bisexual cisgender female performers who look classically ‘femme.’ A better term for this, which is often used instead, is ‘girl/girl’ or ‘G/G,’” said Lynsey G in her book Watching Porn: And Other Confessions of an Adult Entertainment Journalist. Other subgenres of all-girl porn are crafted with female and same-sex-oriented audiences in mind. Critics have praised Bree Mills’s Girlways movies as exemplary instances of this type of lesbian porn, which is often regarded as a rawer, more authentic brand of erotica.
Many prominent pornstars start out as girl/girl performers before adding boy/girl to their repertoire, while others remain girl/girl performers for the balance of their careers. For instance, prior to appearing in B/G scenes, Australian star Angela White began her career exclusively in all-girl videos, and still releases bestselling movies in the genre to this day. Performers such as Jenna Sativa and Prinzzess have carved out popular niches as all-girl actors. Still other actors become girl/girl only as a transition period toward the end of their porn careers.
