What is giantess porn, and why is it so popular?

A sea monster holds a wooden ship in her palm, balancing it on one hand as she devours its crew one by one. She’s absolutely enormous. A grin on her face and a slight blush reveals she’s enjoying herself quite a bit. With the entire vessel in her hand, she could do whatever she pleases with the remaining survivors, although it’s implied she isn’t done eating.

This isn’t an excerpt from a science-fiction tale or fantasy horror story. It’s an erotic illustration. More specifically, it’s giantess porn drawn by immensely popular fetish artist Karbo. The piece features Lily Enstomach from One Piece, a popular manga and anime series. “Karbs this is the BEST Lily [giantess] pic I’ve ever seen, she’s far [too] underrated!” one fan commented on Karbo’s DeviantArt. “If I were those guys I’d abandon ship!”

For a huge portion of internet denizens, giant women are sexually attractive. But why? Welcome to the world of giantess porn. If you’re macro-curious, read on.

Giantess fetishism falls under the sexual paraphilia “macrophilia” (or “macro”), a “sexual paraphilia in which individuals derive sexual arousal from a fascination with giants and/or a sexual fantasy involving giants,” according to Psychology Today. Macrophilia’s counterpart is microphilia, or “micro,” a paraphilia in which the participant experiences sexual pleasure from smaller things. Just as sadism and masochism are two sides of the same coin, so are macro and micro.

Mainstream discussions on macrophilia traditionally revolve around straight cis men lusting after gigantic cis women. But many queer and straight women enjoy giantess porn too, with some fantasizing about being the giantess, and others preferring to be the tiny person. There’s also a sizable community of queer men into giants too, along with men who prefer being the giant.

Sex educator and Kinsey Institute research fellow Justin Lehmiller argues macrophilia’s popularity has blossomed over the years thanks to the internet. In the 21st century, meeting other macro fans and purchasing giantess porn is as easy as firing up Google Chrome and searching for “giantess.”

“[T]he advent of online porn has created new possibilities for exploring this sexual interest, which is probably why it is growing in popularity,” Lehmiller wrote for Playboy in 2016. “One can easily produce and distribute macrophilia porn these days. For example, through the use of Photoshop or a low camera angle combined with some tiny props, it’s not hard to create the visual illusion of a giant or giantess on film.”

Giantess porn tends to perplex non-kinksters because it falls outside of normative sexual interests. But macro and micro are better understood through BDSM, particularly dominance and submission (D/s) play. As Sex Therapy Australia’s director Pamela Supple told Vice in 2016, “power, domination, and vulnerability” are at macrophilia’s core. The giantess is usually the dominant, while the smaller person is the submissive (but that may not always be the case).

“It’s allowing your mind to go wherever it wants to go, whilst engaging in play to gain the maximum sexual arousal,” Supple told Vice. “Some want to feel and experience terror—being crushed or controlled. Everyone is different in what they want to experience.”

Psychologist Mark Griffiths theorizes that macrophilia’s roots “lie in childhood and early adolescence where sexual arousal is, at first, accidentally associated with giants.” That arousal, Griffiths says, is then reinforced over time through “classical conditioning.” Granted, Griffiths admits this is nothing more than speculation.

Additional theories about fetishism abound. Clinical sexologist Dawn Michael argues a fetish may evolve from masturbation sessions where “the reinforcement of orgasm strengthens the fetishistic association.” She also points to symbolic transformation, or when children associate sexual arousal “with objects […] that belong to an emotionally significant person, such as their parent or older sibling.”

While it’s hard to pinpoint what specifically causes macrophilia, kink and fetishism are part of normal human sexual experiences. So if giantesses are part of your sexual desires, by all means, embrace them.

What kinds of giantess porn are out there?

A lot! Many macro kinksters love gigantic women who terrorize tiny cities at skyscraper-like proportions, complete with a monstrous rampage throughout a city. Others prefer their giantesses to stay the same size; rather, they fantasize about shrinking until a normal-sized giantess towers over them. Some giantess porn refrains from outright sexual content, while other material features giant women stroking and licking a small person or even masturbating with them. Like other forms of D/s, giantesses’ personalities range from soft and loving to domineering and brutal.

One of the most well-known variants of giantess porn includes “giantess vore,” short for voreaphilia, a sexual paraphilia in which one person is consumed by another. Like macrophilia, vore can be understood through a D/s scenario: A “predator” (the dominant) consumes a “prey” (or the submissive) in these sexual fantasies. Commonly, a gigantic woman teases, licks, and swallows a smaller person (or multiple small people) for sexual pleasure. Many giantess fans prefer vore scenes without blood or gore, usually through swallowing someone whole (also known as “soft vore”).

Enough about psychology and theory. Let’s chat about the best giantess porn out there.

Macro content comes in various forms, and its most popular iteration is, by far, artwork. The artist mentioned at the start of this piece, Karbo, is one of the most well-known names in the macro fandom. His work features anime-like characters and focuses mostly on soft vore, enormous monster girls, and their miniature victims. Other popular artists include Pogojo, ReSizeStuff, Sihagen, Kuro Oolong, and yilx. Eka’s Portal is an immensely popular website for vore-themed work, including giantess vore, and additional macro artists can be found on Pixiv and DeviantArt.

Fetish clips are also popular among macro fans. Sites like Clips4Sale, iWantClips, and ManyVids host plenty of giantess content and feature everything from foot fetishism and vore to colossal giantesses destroying cities. Some of the best giantess models include Alena LoveAstroDominaMiss Nera Skye, Kiwi Couli, Ruby Rapture, and Reiinapop. For a dedicated studio, TywestVideos excels.

Giantess fans have created plenty of games over the years, too, many of which incredibly immersive. Sizebox offers a virtual sandbox where players can import models, make them grow or shrink, and run custom fetish animations. Resize Me is an anime virtual reality game where players are gradually shrunken by a friend and played with. And for a more retro giantess experience, check out Demolition Girl, a Japanese PlayStation 2 game where players star as a Japanese National Guard member trying to stop a gigantic woman from destroying Japan.
