Do Lesbian Women Have Better Sex?
Do you wonder if lesbians have better sex
than straight women? Yes. Yes. Oh my God, yes!
Women who sleep with women repeatedly report
higher levels of sexual satisfaction
than women who have sex with men.
Where is lesbian sex going right for women
where heterosexual sex is going wrong?
Lesbian women know where their clitoris is
and know what to do with it to get an orgasm.
They don’t need to show their lesbian partner
what to do, which means their sexual satisfaction is higher.
Many men who believe they can give their partners
an orgasm by just having intercourse.
That only happens for 20% of all women. They often need
clitoral stimulation, or oral sex, for it to happen.
It’s one of the reasons why heterosexual women fake orgasms.
I’ve forgotten the first time I pulled out my hair.
It’s been a habit for so many years, done
absent-mindedly while watching TV or typing on my laptop.
Tracing it back to the beginning seems
impossible. But I remember the first time
I realized that it wasn’t normal.
It was December 2011, the winter of my
junior year at high school, and I was
sitting in a movie theater watching Young Adult.
As Charlize Theron’s anxious, wound-up Mavis
pulled out her hair one at a time one, I found
myself catching my breath.
A Chronic Condition
Although I didn’t know to call it this at the time,
I’d finally seen my mental illness portrayed on-screen,
and the sense of recognition I felt left me shaken to the core.
I now know what to call it. Millions of real people
suffer from trichotillomania, the chronic condition
of pulling out one’s hair.
I generally limit mine to my eyebrows,
and although there have been times
when I pick so much I have to use pencil
to fill in the empty spots, it’s typically
not too noticeable by others.
