More visual: Men are generally programmed to respond to more visual aspects of attraction and appearance. Porn offers a very graphic representation of sexual behaviors which falls into that visual aspect. Women tend to be more responsive to touch and the written word as demonstrated by the amazing sales of the book '50 shades of grey'.
