A lesbian woman weeps in my office because her partner has left her, saying “I’ve needed you sexually a long time, and you don’t seem to care.”  Their last conversation about this was 6 months ago–but nothing had changed.

How Do I Stop Fantasizing about Her?

How Do I Stop Fantasizing about Her?

My first thought is “Why should you?” What’s wrong with indulging in fantasies for an unavailable woman?

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 […]

I’m Just Not Attracted to You

I’m Just Not Attracted to You

Here’s something that doesn’t need to be said:  I’m just not attracted to you. Recently “Sally & Sue” came in to talk because they hadn’t had sex in several months. Sally was very upset about it.
