So what is Lesbian Sex
This section invites you to think about a variety of different sexual practices which are part of the sexual repertoire available to women who have sex with women. It invites you to remember or imagine the pleasure of your lips as you kiss her, the desire aroused by sucking her nipples or flicking your tongue across her clit. To think of how your fingers can fill her, or scrape along her back or snuggle into her arse; how your body can sink into hers; how a silk blindfold feels against your eyelids.
Here you’ll get a run down of some of the ways women have sex with each other. We can’t cover everything that could ever be done by (or to) women, but we will whet your appetite. Sex between women can take many forms, in fact defining exactly what it is can often be difficult.
Lesbian Sex 101‘We have soul-gazing sex, heart melting sex and sensual afternoons of bed-flooding sex. We have loud, sweaty, headboard-pounding sex that wakes the neighbours. We have screaming, multiorgasmic sex. We have edgy sex. We have sex.’
(Newman, The Whole Lesbian Sex Book: A Passionate Guide for All of Us, 1999, p1)
In this section you’ll get a run down of some of the ways women have sex with each other. We can’t cover everything that could ever be done by (or to) women, but we will whet your appetite. Sex between women can take many forms, in fact defining exactly what it is can often be difficult. The table The Low-Down on the Down and Dirty covers specific girl-girl sex acts; this section aims to give you a more broad sense of what sex between women can be: life changing, engrossing, uplifting, impulsive, carnal, creative, powerful…and everything else in between.
Hand over fist?
Look at your hands. Imagine them stroking, caressing and sliding over the skin of a woman. Sensuously tactile and heightening sensation, your touch can involve a sexual element, but may not. Exploring her breasts, following the curve of her back, luxuriating in the smoothness of her hair, they can cradle, squeeze, tickle or massage any part of her body, as hers can yours. Your hands can invoke the sensual, the affectionate - or the carnal…they can press into wetness, curl inside her, trace the resounding rhythms of her clit or be engulfed in her softness. Indulging in the sensuality of your own hands can also be intensely gratifying.
Mouths speak both in sentences and to the senses – learning the language of her lips, her nipples, her shoulder and her mind. Mouths can mouth words or mouth wetness, muttering along muscles or warmly mauling shivering skin. Nibbling thighs, gnawing necks, tracing your teeth along her fingers; lick her earlobe or her labia, flick your tongue over her clit or arse, kiss her eyelids or abdomen….
Things that go bump (and grind) in the night
Bodies hug, press against each other, roll around, restrain and are restrained. They wrestle, they soothe, they slide and wrap around one another. Sinking your body into hers, you intertwine and rub, pin her down, still or stir her. Sometimes, you may even fall off the bed as you change positions too enthusiastically.
To boldly go where no body has gone before
Sex toys offer you enhanced sensation, allowing you to create sensory experiences beyond what bodies alone can do. Toys can take many forms - the coarseness of raw silk, the intensity of a nipple clamp, the pulsations of a vibrator, the softness of lingerie or the hardness of a dildo. Tantalising, suggestive or utterly carnal, toys are as versatile as you feel inclined to make them.
Now for something completely different
Finally, (on this particular list at least) you could have sex with men. This may include many of the above activities, and could also include sexual intercourse. For more information on safer sexual intercourse please see www.shfpact.org.au
