Straight women are much more likely to get themselves knocked up than gay women. So, in terms of evolution, they would seem to have a better chance of passing on their genes, while at the same time it would seem that the genes that make women gay would quickly vanish from the gene pool. This raises the question, why are there gay women?
Sexuality in nineteenth-century France is by now, some twenty-five years after Foucault's History of Sexuality: An Introductiona well-plowed field. It is widely accepted that before the pivotal date of and the conservative, censorious imperial regime that it ushered in, sexualities still enjoyed the prelapsarian fluidity that Foucault, in Herculine Barbinprojects backward into the libertine eighteenth century. Indeed, the French Revolution, though it set the clock back for women, enshrined the sexual liberation of homosexuals.
This headline dutifully poked open a gap in my curiosity when variations of it appeared a few days ago. The map, created by data from Pornhub, reveals that in the majority of states, people are searching for lesbian porn the most. Oh sure, in a few quirky states, cartoons are the most popular.
Welcome to Tough Love. I simply want to give you the tools you need to enrich your damn lives. Not wanting to just pine for her, and believing that I saw some signs for mutual attraction, I decided to ask her out.
Eddie Izzard, the exhaustingly funny stand-up comic, certainly looks more at home than most men would in fishnet stockings, stiletto-heeled boots and a thigh-flashing skirt. But even given his ease with femme fatale accouterments, is ''Sexie'' really an appropriate title for his new touring show, which runs at City Center through Saturday? Izzard, you see, is not a come-hither kind of guy.
This piece was originally published at TheLStop. Within every lesbian community there exists a tale as old as time, a proverb as common as it is contentious: Bi women cheat, betray, and ultimately leave — never for another woman, but for a man. Like those who flee the tumults of city life for quieter and less complicated pastures, bisexual women may seem destined, in the eyes of gay women, to trade the grit and hardships of queer life for the suburbs of heteroville.
Some people may not identify with any of these labels, and that is OK too. It also is possible to not feel any sexual attraction. This sometimes is described as being asexual.
Before I met and married my husband, I was with my ex for 15 years, but only married for 6 months. That's because I was with a woman when California legalized same-sex marriage. We had been the iconic lesbian couple: an artist and a writer — teachers and activists. People saw us as the perfect couple.
S traight men have long had a fascination with lesbianism. Tap the word into Google and you can see the range of porn available, from "Naughty girls sharing their Huge Toy", to "Vicky and Nea need no men". I have lost count of the number of times men have asked me what I "do in bed". They can't imagine sex without a penis being around somewhere, which is presumably why so many lesbian-fanciers offer to help out in the bedroom.
