Various theories abound as to why this trope has persisted so prominently, such as the idea that men prefer visual porn while women prefer written porn, but this idea is easily disproven by the thriving yaoi doujinshi culture in Japan and written porn sites for men like nifty.org. More likely is simply that reading prose fiction is simply a more common pastime for women: [[http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=14175229 men account for only 20% of the fiction market]], and similarly, [[https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/jan/27/us-study-finds-publishing-is-overwhelmingly-white-and-female nearly 80% of publishing industry staff are female]]. It's simply that [[https://www.theguardian.com/books/2011/feb/04/research-male-writers-dominate-books-world books written by men get far more media coverage]], leading to the distorted perception that the industry is not as female-dominated as it actually is.

* In ''Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook'', students Rory and Jim gain notoriety by shamelessly writing RealPersonFic about their teachers; Rory plays the trope straight, while Jim averts it. They even hand some of it in as writing assignments, which amuses their writing teacher - [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Varric Tethras]] - to no end.

This trope has been in effect since well before the internet made it much easier to proliferate fanfic. Studies of early ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fanfiction showed as many as 90% of authors were female in the 1970s, even though at the time such stories could only be shared through fanzines or through sending self-addressed-stamped-envelopes to the authors and having them mail you a manuscript. Various theories abound as to why this trope has persisted so prominently, such as the idea that men prefer visual porn while women prefer written porn, but this idea is easily disproven by the thriving yaoi doujinshi culture in Japan and written porn sites for men like nifty.org, and Fanfiction, like porn, trades heavily in AuthorAppeal. This trope is extremely common regardless of the reasoning behind it.
