I have heard that women sometimes turn to it when lonely; if they are divorced, widowed, etc., and do not have a partner anymore, then it can be something that reminds them / helps them keep alive their memories of intimacy.
I think this is the same reason why so many widowed Grandma’s read those racy harlequin romance novels.
I can think of several women in my family who enjoy watching movies that have male/female nude bedroom scenes, but more romantic than deviant. I try to leave the room whenever we are visiting them cause I consider it porn, but yes, I would say it’s usually women who are lonely and aren’t in a relationship (anymore). I tend not to judge them since they’re going through a lot already. But it makes me uncomfortable. As a man, I got into porn for similar reasons (lonely) but I feel that it really set me up for false beliefs about women and sex.
It would be interesting to know if porn causes unmarried women who use it similar problems down the line (when they marry)...
I know that i appreciate men's bodies and have to look away when i want to do that second glance but i don't compartmentalize their bodies or try to mentally undress them or imagine what they look like naked as i've heard that men do to women.

Even if you don't necessarily find something pleasing, your brain and body will often react naturally and get aroused, preparing itself for sex. For women who might struggle with desiring sex, having that arousal response seems to be helpful. It can make something you kind of dread (sex), or not desire at the time, become something you want or are okay with.
I remember reading a few years ago that a difference between men and women, and it is used in advertisement, is that the man looks at the women and imagines that she wants him. The woman also looks at the women and imagines herself in her place. That is why things targeted towards men, the woman is making direct eye contact with the camera. When it's targeted towards women, the woman is looking away. I think that points out the relational draw that woman has.
