Sex while Queer: Taboo Topics

In my opinion, if everyone had more sex, the world be a better place. Don’t tell me that thought hasn’t crossed your mind. Sex affects the body in more ways than just a moment of bliss. It can increase the good hormones and relieve stress, making some people generally happier. So why don’t we talk more liberally and positively about having a healthy sex life?

 

It’s taboo!

 

103016237I’m from the South, where a woman does not talk freely and openly about her sexual appetite. It’s not unheard of, but it makes you that kind of girl. So where does that leave a gender-bending homosexual like me?

 

Right where I want to be, at the edge of the sexual norm, of course. Members of the queer community are not strangers to being thought of as sexual deviants. Much of the argument against LGBT equality is based on the belief that our sexual practices are “unnatural”.

 

Besides the fact that almost everything about my sexuality is due to nature, I’m out and proud. I love letting my freak flag fly.

 

So let’s talk taboo.

 

When I think of edgy sex topics, I think of female ejaculation—squirting as it’s affectionately called. Squirting, in general, is not accepted as a normal sexual response. A lot of people believe that something is “wrong” when fluid suddenly rushes from the vagina. They get freaked out by the unfamiliar. My girlfriend is a squirter so I can say from my research that getting messy can be a lot of fun. We got tired of changing our sheets so we finally upgraded our bedroom with a Fascinator Mini Throe. It soaks up our love juices and looks much classier than a towel.

A discussion on sexual taboos wouldn’t be complete without a nod (or a fist bump) to brachiovaginal penetration, also called fisting. Brachiovaginal or brachioproctic insertion is any act where a person attempts to fit as much of a hand as possible into the vagina or anus respectively to achieve the maximum amount of pressure possible. We went more in depth about fisting here.

 

aloe-cadabra-lube-french-lavenderIf you or your partner enjoys the feeling of extra fullness, fisting may be for you. Urban Dictionary, a trusted resource in many circles, defines it as ” the act or art of putting a fist in an ass or vagina, very popular practice among more evolved (kinky) gays. Requires great care and huge amounts of lubrication.” Short and sweet. I recommend Aloe Cadabra as a good, globular lubricant that’s great for skin to skin contact.

 

Another topic of sexual discussion that is often considered taboo is anal intercourse or pegging. For many, pegging is misunderstood and often times considered deviant. Why would anyone want to strap on a fake dildo to have sex? Well, I am here to tell you that pegging/anal intercourse can be quite pleasurable when done after lots of foreplay. The anus is many times more sensitive than the vagina. So the benefits of anal intercourse can feel unbelievable pleasurable. Here’s a helpful link that helps to demystify pegging and offers some helpful tips too.

 

For me, I find the Tantus Feeldoe to be mutually beneficial. This strapless strap-on let’s both partners feel more connected, since keeping it place means using the PC muscles while inserted into the vagina. The shaft end of the dildo uses a natural angle allowing for better penetration. When in motion, it creates sensations for both the giver and receiver. Plus, it can accommodate a bullet vibrator giving it bonus points!

 

 

The moral of my story is not to let stigma stop you. Dare to find your own boundaries, and have plenty of fun along the way.

Perhaps you can answer a two-part question. I’m a lesbian and recently started seeing a beautiful woman that I adore. Neither of us want to be penetrated by anything resembling a penis. All the toys that I’ve found all look like penises and really turn me off.  Since If I don’t want anything like that inserted, does it mean we aren’t having sex? Also, what kind of things can we do to enhance our lovemaking that does not involve something fake?

 

beautiful girl with a pointer in pointsRemember when we all had to sit through health class and listen to the gym-teacher drone on about the subject of sex. Over and over again, we were told that boy meets girl — girl kisses boy — boy sticks it in — and well you know the rest.  Even back then, I knew something was amiss!

 

For this topic, I chose to Google “lesbian sex”. Why was I so surprised to find that there are close to 120 million sites dedicated to just lesbian sex alone? It must be because women are beautiful in all forms. Or it could be because a majority of the online content are gif’s  showing women penetrating themselves with penis-like sex toys.

 

So, in my quest for the truth about lesbian sexcapades, I reached out to the source. This is what my long time, same-sex bestie had say about her lesbian sexual experiences —  “The sexual portrayal of lesbian women is way too “pornish” and a prime example of male-driven fantasy. Lesbian sex is as unique and elusive as an orgasm — you can only understand it if you have experienced it yourself.”

 

Because sex, as a whole, is such a massive topic and there is tons of material to cover. The following are the highlights that my lovely lesbian tour-guide shared with me about sex and penetration.

 

The X to the O

One women that I met said that she really loves just making-out. In fact, her preference of lovemaking is to make out heavily!  She poetically describes it as “something deep that happens between two women — something ethereal and beyond the range of written language or even abstract thought.”  What really turns her on, is the that she can physically bond with her partner through the lips rather than the genitals.

 

Of course, kissing is a universal sign of affection and spans beyond either straight or gay sex. It’s something that can create a close bond. To enhance your level of seduction and foreplay, allow me to direct you to a recent posting on the Art of the Kiss. There is no right or wrong way to kiss, but learning different ways to express your love, through the art of the kiss, is fun and can certainly make your partner the X to your next O.

 

Oh Toy! Oh Toy!

 

It’s no secret that women enjoy the feeling of clitoral stimulation during intercourse. But when it comes to lesbian sex, there is a different viewpoint on what deserves to be inserted. Yes, skin-to-skin contact is a wonderful thing, but let’s not underestimate the power of batteries and silicone. For women who are into the shake, rattle, and roll, here some some killer vibes that can pack a real one-two punch without the visual dick distraction.

This incredible pleasure maker (or giver) is packed with a pulse action interchangeable vibrating tip that can be used on virtually any part of your body. Also, it’s discreet enough as a home decor appliance which will have your guest’s guessing.

 

The JimmyJane Form vibes are top-of-the-line wonderful, completely waterproof, and offer various ways of interacting with your partner. The Form 3 is shaped like a tongue, if that’s what you’re into.  Also, if you are wanting to try some type of penetration, the Form 4 is able to be held in place with your legs while doing other things with your hands (including updating your facebook profile).

 

Truth be told, most sex toys can be used for any and all bodies in any and all couples or groupings. All you need is a little creativity, an open mind and some lube.

 

Teasing for a Pleasing

 

The gold standard of lesbian sex is oral sex. It’s luscious, tasty and a totally mind-altering experience when it’s good. And with a bit of tongue or finger insertion, it’s absolutely divine. So much so, that it almost feels a little like cheating.

 

To love oral sex, you’ve got to be committed to understanding that area of a woman. It’s not as simple as one thinks. As a lesbian, just because you have a clitoris doesn’t automatically make you good at oral sex, but it’s a big help. First off, you want to stimulate your lover’s clitoris, but also you want to enjoy her labia, her mound, her perineum (that space between the clitoris and the anus) and the taste of her. Oral sex involves really (and I mean really) using your tongue, lips and sometimes your fingers. As you explore your lover, be sensitive at first on how you discover the way she’s built.

 

Some women love your tongue to be rough and hard, while other women want it slow, gentle and easy. Some women hate penetration, while others crave it.  If you don’t know, then use your mouth — to ask. It’s worth it to discover exactly what she likes because she’ll be putty in your hands when you can give her great oral sex. And be especially thankful if she speaks up to say do this or do that. She’s just made your work as her sex slave a lot easier!

 

In most respects, same-sex relationships are not much different from hetero relationships. Like everyone else, lesbian women fall in love and form committed relationships. Regardless of your sexuality, it’s important to be open and honest with your partner about your feelings, wants and desires. Beyond that, there are no predetermined rules to follow in any relationship regarding sex. Because sex is an expression of your love through action — demonstrating that love anyway you’re able  — penetration or no penetration.
