I met one woman who was never

I met one woman who was never with a man, and she believed that any woman who had ever been with a man wasn't a real lesbian. She's actually very militant about it. 15 years since I met her, she still thinks that way.

Of course, she's still single, still has no real friends, but we try not to let her drink alone.

Yes, there are older virgins in this world, and with very good reason.

Oh, how I can relate to that!

Oh yeah, I remember that one.

Oh yeah, I remember that one. That's about the point where the series lost me on the reality scale.

My least favorite line at work:

"I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body."

Fine, go get a sex change, and then let me frack you with my strap on!

There are days when I really hate my job. :twisted:

Wow, talk about a range of topics, all very interesting! Of course, I fit into all these categories, so maybe I'm just biased that way? Laughing out loud

I do agree, though, that it would be nice to discuss more real life examples outside of academia, ranging from the more mainstream to those of us who are anything but.

"lesbian bed death and/or

"lesbian bed death and/or keeping an active sex life in long-term committed relationships?"

Oooooh, that's always a humdinger of a topic. But I think it's one that is worth exploring.

peacekitty's picture

Hahaha Diana! I wish we had

Hahaha Diana! I wish we had had your book in our library collection when a man come up to the teen reference desk and asked me to help him find information on "oral sex."

*We won't talk about the "ick factor" of that exchange and how the pervert just wanted to amuse himself by freaking out the local librarian. Let me just say I put him in his place by giving him "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Kama Sutra." He didn't get the irony. Smile

"Fight Prime Time. Read a Book"

Lezbeth's picture

These may not be favorite

These may not be favorite subjects, but given the discussions about sexual/cultural identity, how about looking outside the feminist, academic circle and bringing in women who've experienced something different:
women of color/communities of color and gender identity, transgendered women and the women who love them, rural dykes. Given some of the things that pushed my buttons in these discussions, how about including some women aged 50 to 80 in these discussions...women who've lived as dykes their entire adult lives--what have they experienced in that 30-60 years relative to the topic? When discussing these different topics, having women who represent those identities participating in more of an interview format rather than making broad statements as fact. Also, there are many women who are outside the US taking part in these discussions. Why not address their experiences?

How about the topic no one likes to think about: lesbian bed death and/or keeping an active sex life in long-term committed relationships?

I hope you're not sorry you asked.

Steph H's picture

Yeah, that's what I was

Yeah, that's what I was trying to say PK, but you said it far better than me.

To answer your question - not me!

peacekitty's picture

I understand where you're

I understand where you're coming from Diana. Have you ever had a lesbian that you've dated be very suspicious of you if you admit that you've been attracted to men once or twice?

I don't understand that way of thinking. If I fall in love with someone I'm monogamous with that person. It's not likely that I'm going to suddenly leave my partner for a man because I've been attracted to them in the past, but some lesbians seem to think that you're only a true lesbian if you've never been attracted to or slept with men.

Seriously, how many lesbians out there can say they fit that mold?
