Lesbian Partner is Angry about Lack of Sex

Is it Anti-Feminist for a Lesbian to Initiate Sex?

Is it Anti-Feminist for a Lesbian to Initiate Sex?

What’s a very common refrain you hear when you ask a lesbian about her sex life? “Once we get started, I love it!” Actually, you hear a version of that about a lot of things, not just sex. “I didn’t want to go to that party, but once I got there I had a great […]
