A片或許是許多人舒壓的管道,但對某些人來說,這些影像工具可能早就不夠了。

Porn is useful to help people explore and embrace their sexuality. To some people though, the current selection isn’t really turning them on.

對此,美國女企業家Caroline Spiegel更深入針對女性需求,創辦了成人聲音網,挑戰女性的想像力極限。

Caroline Spiegel, who knows this all too well, said that she’s on a mission to help porn feel more imaginative and female-friendly.

Caroline Spiegel為美國史丹佛大學校友,她透過創辦Quinn網站,顛覆大眾對成人文學的想像。

其實,Caroline Spiegel為美國通訊軟體Snapchat董事長的妹妹。她與好友兩人共同經營Evan Spiegel公司。現在,使用者可以透過口語傳達,上傳成人故事音檔至網站平台上,與其他使用者分享。

The younger sister of Snapchat CEO and co-founder Evan Spiegel launched the brand-new platform for users to upload audio files or sexy stories they want to share with others.

有別於傳統成人影片,Quinn網站全部以聲音、和文字組成,讓女性自由探索自己喜歡什麼樣的形式。

Instead of using visual content, Quinn is entirely made up of audio and written work to allow women to be more inventive about what turns them on, she said.

此外,網站內容全部免費,也無須登入,使用者可以以匿名方式在推文下方留言、或自行發布內容。

It’s totally free, and there’s no login required — if you want to comment or post something, you can do it under an anonymous username.

創辦人希望藉此打破傳統教條,以聲音及文字方式呈現成人內容,使女性也能得到感官上的滿足。

The platform is unique because it’s geared specifically toward female pleasure, and it departs from traditional norms about adult content as a visual medium.

在過去,Spiegel發現身邊有許多女性朋友,表示對傳統A片表示厭惡,無法獲得生理需求上的滿足。

Spiegel decided to create the site after developing sexual dysfunction as a symptom of her anorexia. She realized that many of her female friends were feeling similar dissatisfaction.

在與美國媒體Elite Daily專訪中,她表示當時開始詢問身邊朋友:「你們常高潮嗎?」「你們有滿足嗎?」

“I started talking to my friends, and was like, ‘Are you guys orgasming regularly? Are you feeling sexually fulfilled?’, she told Elite Daily.

「但我得到的都是相同答案。」她說。「我們感到沮喪,而且外面成人網上的東西也幫不了我們⋯」Spiegel表示,當下的他才了解到這項不被滿足的需求如此廣泛。

“And I got this resounding answer, which was, ‘We’re just frustrated, and content out there isn’t really doing it for us’…. I realized there was this need that wasn’t really being met.”

於是,她和她的朋友Greta Meyer開始合夥,與許多治療師、業者溝通,嘗試了解在該產業中被長期忽略的這塊領域。

Spiegel, along with her friend (and now business partner) Greta Meyer, started reaching out to sex therapists and porn creators to learn about the industry.

她們亦進行許多面談,最後得到的答案是,傳統的影片其實不是多數使用者的需要。(Spiegel並未公開他的統計方法。)

They conducted user interviews to see what content women responded to most avidly. (Spiegel declined to comment on the specific demographics of her user research.) Interestingly, they discovered that video wasn’t what most users wanted.

她說:「我們發現,影片其實是非常侷限。」透過Quinn,人們就有更多機會可以自由探索。

“We find that [videos are] extremely limiting in terms of your imagination,” Spiegel says. With Quinn, users have more opportunity to get creative about their fantasies.

比起看由特定人演出性愛過程的影片,她們可以透過用聽的,再自己想像畫面中到底發生了什麼樣的事。

Rather than watching a video of people having sex, they can listen to sexy audio while creating a mental image of whatever makes them feel super hot.

「你不需要被逼著看一個方框中的內容。」她表示:「每人都有不同的喜好,就跟生活一樣,所以體驗生活才如此有趣。」

“You don’t need to be forced into one picture of what sexy is,” she explains. “Different things turn on different people, and that’s life. And that’s the fun of it.”
