Lesbians Ponder the Mysterious Clitoris

Lesbians Ponder the Mysterious Clitoris

I remember at one point actually BELIEVING the theory of Freud’s “vaginal orgasm”. And when I finally realized the ridiculousness of it, I had to chuckle.

My First Lesbian Experience

I felt attracted to girls at a very young age. I came from a large family in the Lake Minnetonka area of the Twin Cities and every morning in summer we kids were released after breakfast to explore the neighborhood around the lake. I would often be alone, preferring to fish on the dock by […]

Is Lesbian Bed Death Inevitable? We Think Not.

Many years ago a young woman came to my office for consultation about a very specific question.  She asked “Do you think lesbian bed death is inevitable?”  Her story was sadly familiar.  She had been living with her partner for 12 years, the past 5 without sex.  She was unhappy about this, but her partner just […]

3 Ways to Avoid Trouble in Lesbian Dating

It was a punch in the arm that caught me off guard enough to wake me up to the reality that I was in a toxic relationship with an emotional abuser. Life was an addictive cycle of highs and lows that ate away at my sense of who I am to the point that I […]

Lesbian Relationships: 3 Tips for Mindful Dating

Recently I listened to a lovely talk about meditation, about paying attention to the present moment, practicing loving compassion, and letting go of thoughts that carry you away from your breath, or mantra, or wherever you focus when you meditate.
