In the Huffington Post, a lesbian sex counselor
, Glenda Corwin, explains
that the lesbian long-term monogamous sex glass is, when you stop and think about it, not just 80% empty, but also 20% full!
When I first heard about "lesbian bed death" I was puzzled. What`s the point in coming out if you`re not going to have sex? Because let`s face it — being lesbian isn`t just about having wonderful emotional connections with other women. It`s about having sex with them. That`s what gets us in trouble with the rest of the world. So how could we walk away from something we fought so hard to have?
At first I was overwhelmed, and a little depressed, about how many of my lesbian clients and friends were rarely — if ever — having sex with their partners. But when I started doing research on this subject, I found reason to hope. There`s some evidence that a minority (maybe 20 percent) of long-term lesbian partners sustain sexual intimacy after 10 or 20 or more years together.
