Lesbian Sex

How do lesbians have sex?

Just like everyone else! Touching, kissing, stroking…and all that fun stuff. As always with sex, consent is super important. You and your partner should be comfortable with one another, and feel able to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to any part of the sex act. Checking in at various stages can help make sure your both on the same page. You could say something like: “Can I kiss you?” or  “Is this okay?”

Here’s how to tell if you’re having sex:

1. Are you naked or partially naked?
2. Are you with another person?
3. Are you pleasuring someone else with your mouth, hands or other body part?
4. Is it possible that someone could have an organism in this situation?

If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you are most likely having sex!
