Porn is useful to help people explore and embrace their sexuality. To some people though, the current selection isn’t really turning them on.
Caroline Spiegel, who knows this all too well, said that she’s on a mission to help porn feel more imaginative and female-friendly.
That’s why the Stanford senior launched a site dedicated to audio porn and erotica that drastically change the way we think about self-pleasure – Quinn (https://tryquinn.com/)

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.
The website, which went live last month, is a “turn-on community of anonymous people,” according to the founder.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“I started talking to my friends, and was like, ‘Are you guys orgasming regularly? Are you feeling sexually fulfilled?’, she told Elite Daily.
“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.”
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.

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.
“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.
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.
“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.”
