Audio entertainment – like podcasts, audiobooks and games – has become extremely popular in recent years. Creators are also applying aural principles to wellbeing platforms; meditation apps, for example, have become essential mental health resources (even prescribed by some doctors) all through the medium of voice.

Audio porn therefore feels like the natural next step for the adult entertainment industry, with a wide variety of apps and websites on offer. While the majority of audio in this space focuses on audio stimulation and pleasure for women, we are starting to see more diversity as the genre increases in popularity.

Here are some of the more popular providers:

Ferly

  • iOS App Store rating: 4.3 stars (57 ratings)
  • Free

Presented as ‘your audio guide to mindful sex’ – this is a female-focused, therapeutic approach to audio erotica.

New users answer a series of questions about their perception of sex (enjoyment, presence, confidence) to create a free and tailored account and receive an ‘expert-created audio programme’. Terms, conditions and app data usage are summarized (with the option to expand) before you create an account.

Users are then presented with five audio programmes to choose from, depending on their reasons for using the platform, for example the, Boost Sexual Confidence or Cultivate Mindful Sex set. Each programme has a weekly schedule of guided audio exercises and meditations that focus on exploring the body, including breathing exercises. You can download the courses (all free), but each week is locked until you’ve completed the first part, so you can’t skip ahead. There is also an option to set reminders.

‘Stories’ (i.e. the pornographic element) are embedded into the programmes or accessed as a separate section. Users can filter by category (e.g. New, or Queer), and choose either a female or male narrator. There’s also a ‘spice’ level to choose from, to indicate how kinky you want to go.

There are two kinds of ‘stories’ (all 6-20 mins): first-person narrated naughty ‘Sensual Stories’, or a ‘Guided Masturbation’ – all produced with high audio quality and featuring soundscapes to add to the immersion.

Pros

  • Free
  • High-quality audio and soundscapes
  • Good navigation and filtering
  • Beautiful illustrations
  • Guided masturbation and stories

Cons

  • Limited ranged (only 20 ‘stories’)
  • Even the ‘spiciest’ stories are resolutely vanilla – more kinky users may be disappointed
  • Programmes have slightly confusing descriptions – more focused on mindfulness than erotica

Ferly

Dipsea

  • iOS App Store rating: 4 stars (140 ratings)
  • Limited free content (Premium access is £8.49 per month or £43.99 for an annual subscription with a 7-day free trial)

Dipsea features high-quality, multi-gender audio stories, plus guided masturbation and radio plays, with great design and easy navigation.

The free selection here is extremely limited – just a few straight, female-focused tracks.

Premium unlocks more than 200 more stories – one of the biggest audio libraries available. You can set preferences such as sexiness level (Chill/Steamy/Hot&Heavy), select a gender focus (Straight/Lesbian/Gay/Non-Binary), and choose from a huge range of categories such as ‘How-To’, ‘Threesome’, ‘Sensual’, ‘Teacher’, ‘Toy Play’ and Dominance’. You can also favourite tracks and get notifications when new stories become available.

One of the standouts is the ‘Get Intimate With’ series – ASMR-like mutual masturbation tracks focusing on male and female narrators, with climaxes and moans. There are also ‘Guided Fantasies’, narrated by men and women (but generally aimed at women), ranging from ‘Explorative’ to ‘Game’.

The navigation is simple: Stories, Guided, Favorites, or Search by keyword… or choose from a long list of tags. The design is bright, clear, and full of diverse, body-positive illustrations, really making this an app for everyone.

Pros

  • Great design and easy navigation
  • Diverse, inclusive and body positive
  • Super high-quality audio
  • Huge library of content 
  • Tailored recommendations and favorites
  • Frequent updates and new content

Cons

  • Free content extremely limited

Dipsea

TeaseMe

  • iOS App Store rating: 5 stars (1 rating)
  • Limited free content (Premium access is £8.99 monthly or £46.99 yearly with a 7-day free trial

This app is pretty much exactly a Dipsea copy, without the variety, diversity or extensive library of content.

It’s a well-designed, female-focused app, featuring eye-catching body- and age-positive illustrations of women, calling itself a ‘sex-positive community’.

New users can select ‘free for you’ and listen to four free stories. Once you sign up to Premium, however, you can navigate by Discover, Library or Search.

In Discover, there are stories of the day, editor’s picks and categories such as Queer, BDSM, Fantasy, Couple, Travel and Straight. In Library, you can find your favourites and recent listens. In Search, you can type a keyword or choose from categories as before, with a few extras like ‘Hobby’ and ‘Coworkers’.

Stories are narrated by (American) women describing sexy encounters with men, with the occasional radio play.

There isn’t a big selection, especially in comparison to Dipsea and given the price. Some of the categories, like ‘BDSM’, only have two tracks, ‘Queer’ has five and even Straight only has 12. 

Stick with Dipsea – this is essentially a copy with none of the things that make Dipsea so great.

Pros

  • Great design and easy navigation

Cons

  • Expensive, especially given the limited content
  • A direct copy of Dipsea
  • Female-focused only

TeaseMe

Satisfy

  • iOS App Store rating: Not enough ratings
  • Free

This is a very basic, sparse app, but we included it here because the content targets a male audience.

The app opens instantly onto a list of audio tracks, some tagged with things such as ‘relationship’, but most feature only a simple title, which clicks through to a small description.

The audio is typically female voices addressing the (presumed male) listener. Some of the audio episodes are more like podcasts, focusing on body positivity for men. It feels like this is attempting to be a kind of Ferly-style guided mediation collection for men, but in a very basic format.

While the stories are in English, they’re mostly narrated with foreign accents, which could contribute to the appeal for some users.

Pros

  • Simple and straightforward – no sign-up, forms or questions
  • Male-focused

Cons

  • No navigation or filtering
  • Fairly random assortment
  • Limited content – only 12 tracks available

Satisfy

Quinn

  • Website only – no app
  • Free

This is a minimal, library-like website with a diverse range of audio tracks available from a long list of categories.

Categories include the typical favourites (Lesbian, Romance, Male Voice, Female Voice), as well as more diverse offerings such as Gay, Group Sex, Oral, even Overheard Sex and Moans – catering to a spectrum of tastes. The ‘Overheard’ section particularly stands out – audio tracks of couples or solo masturbation with bed sounds and climaxes. There are also curated playlists like ‘Quarantine edition’ and ‘Getting Rough’ for users to explore.

Tracks are uploaded by a variety of contributors and vary wildly in length and quality. It’s tricky to explore through categories, requiring several annoying clicks to get the track to start – it’s easier to click through a playlist.

Most of the tracks are single voices with no background addressing the listener directly. There’s a wide range of accents – American, British, Australian etc.

Pros

  • Diverse and inclusive
  • Unique formats, particularly the Overheard category
  • Huge library 
  • All free

Cons

  • Website only
  • Clunky navigation and UX
  • Audio quality varies

Emjoy

  • iOS App Store rating: 4.5 stars (106 ratings)
  • Free to download (8 free sessions) – a yearly subscription is £29.99

Like Ferly, this isn’t exactly designed as an audio porn app, rather a sexual wellness course for women.

The app prompts new users to take a test to ‘personalize your journey’ (with the assurance your data won’t be shared with third parties). Questions focus on body image, confidence, communication with partners and libido, with the option to add a few filters and goals before you receive a set audio journey – a sort of sexual self-exploration therapy course with advice, guided body exploration and sex education.

Once you have your ‘journey’ however, you can navigate away to Today, Wellbeing, or Stories instead.

Today takes you to more tests or challenges – working on specific areas of your sex life, e.g. desire level, body positivity etc.

Wellbeing takes you to therapeutic and educational tracks grouped around themes such as Self Esteem or Pleasure.

Stories takes you to more familiar audio stories – laid out in a slightly frustrating long list, tagged by orientation (straight or lesbian), and featuring one, two or three chillies to indicate spice level.

Stories feature high quality recordings and are narrated by men and women with American or British accents. There’s not a lot of variety, bar some light kink and a few lesbian tracks to listen to.

Pros

  • High-quality audio
  • Easy navigation
  • Simple, calming design
  • Recommendations and tailored courses

Cons

  • More wellness-focused than erotica
  • Frustrating long list in the Stories section
  • Female-focus only

Other options

In addition to these apps, audio fans can also explore audio porn provided by individual bloggers – usually accessed for free via sex blogs or Soundcloud, such as Girl On The Net (female voice) or InMyHands (male voice).

Fans can also commission custom audio erotica directly from porn performers through OnlyFans (if the performer offers it), or through Patreon projects like Velvet Tip Studios – creating their own audio fantasies.
