Lesbian sex can be just as fun and fulfilling as sex with men, if not more so because of the intimacy that same-sex contact often brings. That said, there are many myths about lesbian sex that prevent those who have not tried it or are reluctant to talk about it openly from fully exploring and experiencing it. This article debunks some of the most common myths about lesbian sexuality and aims to help heterosexual and gay women learn more about the experiences and preferences of lesbian partners in order to better understand each other and have more fulfilling sexual encounters in the future.
Each partner has a gender role in the relationship
For example, one partner always penetrates the other. Like all others, lesbians may play a variety of roles. Sometimes, one partner may always penetrate the other, but partners often swap roles or have different types of sex. All lesbians have sex through scissors
Contrary to popular belief, not all lesbians have sex through scissors. In fact, there are many different ways for lesbians to have sex. Scissoring is just one of the many options available. Vaginal intercourse is the more common form of intercourse for women. While scissoring is probably the most common and well-known way for two women to have sex, lesbians can also do many other things together, such as oral sex or masturbation with the help of a partner.
In fact, because lesbian couples do not have to worry about vaginal secretions coming in contact with semen, they are less likely to contract sexually transmitted diseases (such as chlamydia and gonorrhea) from these secretions.
Lesbians cannot be violent, and there is no such thing as lesbian rape
Rape is defined as unlawful sexual intercourse or any other sexual penetration of the vagina, anus, or mouth of another person by a sexual organ, other body part, or foreign object, with or without violence, without the consent of the victim. By definition alone, rape cannot occur between two women because rape requires penile penetration of the vagina or anus.
Lesbians feel disinterested or disenchanted with sex
Another misconception is that lesbians are not as good as heterosexuals. This is also not true!
Being a lesbian means that someone was born female or cannot be transgender
The idea that being a lesbian means someone was born female or can't be transsexual is a myth. While some lesbians are born female, there are also transgender and gender cool lesbians who were not born female. In addition, many lesbians do not consider themselves to be female, but rather queer. The idea that lesbians are somehow inferior to heterosexuals or other sexual orientations is also false. Lesbians can have fulfilling and satisfying relationships just like anyone else.
