  1. Im a young girl who has always fanazised being with an older woman.....I get so wet thinking about her teaching me what to do by doing it to me, and then having her make me do it to her.... I think about it all the time and have gone as far as to join online dating sights looking for older women... Can anyone else relate? or any older women out there looking to chat? -young and confused
  2. How do you feel like you have changed since you first joined? Do you feel more comfortable and sure of your sexuality?
  3. I'm confused by what a previous gf said to me the other day - she doesn't class herself as bi or lesbian and isn't attracted to any girl apart from me..and said she never finds any girl attractive at all..!!?? To which I replied you must be bi she's adamant she's not.. even though I can tell you now she is (lol) ;) The older I get the more interested I am in women (blush) How do you see yourself ? Do you find the older you get the more you yearn for it ?
  4. Artistic vision is having the clarity to fall in love with what you see. - Chogyam Trungpa This post represents a travel through time to see a sampling of artistic works whose subject is primarily the connection of women with other women. Along the way we'll see different kinds of relationships and bonds that women have with each other which artists and society in general have decided has value and is worth celebrating. Let's travel back in time to 1482 when the Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli painted Primavera (the Allegory of Spring) for a member of the Medici family. This beautiful masterpiece would have taken Botticelli, a very skilled artist, many weeks or months to complete and would have been impossible to complete without the financial support of a wealthy family and/or institution. That kind of sponsorship usually led to the work of art being held privately. The Three Graces from Primvera - Sandro Botticelli (c.1482) In the left part of the painting we see the Three Graces, Chastity, Beauty, & Love, in an intimate dance with their fingers intertwined and their eyes gazing upon each other. The mythology of the Graces date back to ancient Greece where they are seen as minor goddesses and daughters of Zeus and Eurynome. They are often depicted nude although in Primavera Botticelli chose to clothe them in sensual, diaphanous gowns. Venus, Flora, Mars and Cupid (Allegory) - Paris Bardone (1570) In the above painting by Bardone we see the two mythological characters Venus (Goddess of love, beauty, desire, sex, fertility) sitting intimately with Flora (Goddess of flowers and spring). Interestingly, both Venus and Flora are depicted in Primavera although separately. It is fairly common in art history to see two, or more, women displayed in an intimate manner to symbolize unity or a synergy between their supernatural domains. An additional explanation is that the male artists who created these works were providing what they and/or their patrons desired to see - women being intimate with other women for their own visceral enjoyment, and used mythology to justify the intimacy. Allegory of the Union of Painting and Poetry - Francesco Furini (1626) Furini's allegorical figures are more erotic than Bardone's. There is more exposed skin, including a breast and the two women are positioned to begin kissing. "Poetry" is making eye contact with us, the viewer, and she seems to be confirming our erotic suspicions with a coy smile. Allegory of Water and Earth - Jan Breughel II and Frans Francken II (c. 1620-1640) Here we see the intimacy of two women as being allegorical to the synergy of water and earth and the bounty of life and growth that the combination provides. Jupiter Disguised as Diana Seducing the Nymph Callisto - Nicolaes Pieterszoon Berchem (1620-1683) The story of Jupiter taking the appearance of Diana to seduce the nymph Callisto comes from the epic narrative poem Metamorphses written by Ovid in the year 8 AD. There are many paintings which depict scenes from the story and some focus on the eroticism of apparent lesbianism, such as in the above painting by Berchem. Nymphs by a Fountain - Peter Lely (c.1650) Nymphs are divine spirits from ancient Greek and Latin mythology who animate nature and are usually depicted as young nubile women, often nude, who love to sing and dance and cavort with each other and their deity, with is often Diana or Venus. They are often shown to be residents of woods but sometimes are depicted as sea nymphs. In Lely's painting we see our nymphs worn out after a long hard day of frolicking and are sleeping together in a communal cuddle, which strongly suggests lesbian cavorting. Diana and Her Companions - Johannes Vermeer (c. 1650s) Diana is having her feet washed by one of her nymphs which is reminiscent of a biblical scene. The atmosphere here is one of humility, service and reverence and is quite different from most Diana-nymph paintings which are usually have a degree of eroticism. Justice and Peace Embracing - Antonio Balestra (ca. 1700) Here is another symbolic painting showing two women being intimate to represent the unity of justice with peace. Although they are fully clothed the women are clearly expressing sexual intentions as they lean towards each other to kiss while cupid shows his appreciation for their desire. Diana and Callisto - Pietro Liberi (1670) This painting based on Metamorphses shows Diana after the seduction of Callisto by Jupiter (appearing as Diana). Although this scene is one of discovery and consolation, is bursting with sexuality and the eroticism of implied lesbianism as we see Diana and her nymphs fully naked and in intimate connections with each other. This kind of depiction of women as soft,voluptuous and sensual creatures by men, for the viewing pleasure of other men will be repeated often in many subsequent paintings spanning over 200 years. Study for 'Justice, Peace, and Truth' - Giovanni Battista Gaulli (Baciccio) (c. 1666-1672) This symbolic union features a soft kiss between Justice and Peace while adding an element of voyeurism as Truth looks on as cherubs/cupids place a crown on the head of the head of Justice. La Toilette - François Boucher (1742) Boucher was a prolific and prominent painter for the French aristocracy during the 18th century who enjoyed his decorative Rococo style which often included an atmosphere of eroticism. In this painting he has added a degree of implied lesbianism in a contemporary setting. Are the women flirting, or perhaps getting dressed after a time of shared passion? Two Nymphs of Diana resting after their Return from the Hunt - François Boucher (1748) Here Boucher depicts a mythological setting without the context of a typical narrative. It is illustrative of the lifestyle we can assume the nymphs had, namely intimate, romantic and erotic relationships with each other. The Union of Painting and Sculpture - Jean Louis Lagrenee (1768) This symbolic union of the Fine Visual Arts is especially erotic with a half naked embrace witnessed by an approving Cupid. Jean-Honoré Fragonard, The Servant Girls' Dormitory, c. 1770 Fragonard was another prominent Rococo artist who also specialized in erotic themes. In this drawing he provides his viewers with a special and privileged access to a private, but plausible scene unavailable to men. It's a pure voyeuristic fantasy where men can imagine the pleasure of the young women as they explore their romantic and erotic urges for each other. A feminist analysis of this work would conclude that these women are passive sex objects created by a man for the enjoyment of men and it's primary message to women is one of male dominance over women, even in imaginary scenes which only involve women. Diana and her Nymphs Bathing - Angelica Kauffman (c.1778-82) Kauffman was a successful artist in London and Rome who specialized in historical works, and was one of a growing number of women who were able to achieve success in the male dominated arts industry. Her treatment of a classical mythology scene that usually features implied lesbianism is arguably more romantic than erotic. La Bonne Nouvelle (The Good News) - Marguerite Gérard (c. 1804) Gérard would become a sister-in-law of Jean-Honoré Fragonard and under his tutelage would become a successful artist specializing in scenes of domestic life including memorable moments of motherhood and childhood. Many early women artists focused on these daily life or genre scenes as they were denied access to art schools and the training required to paint ambitious and prestigious historical themes. In the above painting we see the close relationship between relatives, perhaps sisters or cousins as they share the contents of a letter. The Greek Poet Sappho and the Girl from Mytilene' - Nicolai Abildgaard (1809) Abildgaard, in this painting depicts lesbianism between Sappho, a known historical figure and one of her disciples. Eroticism of this nature was most likely privately commissioned for male enjoyment. Helena and Hermia - Washington Allston (ca. 1810) This painting depicts a scene between characters from William Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream. Helena and Hermia are close friends and there is some ambiguity about the nature of their relationship which to some appears homoerotic. At the very least they appear to be "romantic" friends in Allston's painting. The Lovers - Jules-Robert Auguste (c. 1820) This scene of explicit lesbianism takes place in a vague outdoor location on top of a luxurious pile of fabrics. The interracial couple implies that this might be a scene associated with a harem which adds an extra exotic twist to the voyeuristic fantasy. Paintings depicting harems and the women who inhabited them are quite common in the 19th century. Often the women in harems are arranged in poses which imply lesbianism but usually not as obviously as in the August work above. Moonrise over the Sea - Caspar David Friedrich (1822) We share a beautiful outdoors view with three people sitting on the rock. The closeness of the women compared to the man seated behind them signifies their close emotional connection. We, the viewer, can imagine ourselves in their place, seeing the beauty of nature while sitting close to a loved one. Alternately we can see the women's relationship as a part of or the focal point in the scene of natural beauty. The exact nature of their connection - sister, friend or perhaps lover doesn't really matter. Germania and Italia - Friedrich Overbeck (1811-28) This symbolic union between Italia (the "south", on the left) and Germania (the "north") represents the two major areas of European civilization and their unique characteristics and approaches towards art. Here we can see the need, the desire, the craving of Germania to be more like Italia, to become more expressive, emotional and passionate. In symbolic union paintings like these there is a recognition or belief, beyond the implied lesbianism, that the connection between women can be profound, synergistic and durable. Boarding School Friends - attributed to "French School" (1837) This painting brings to life the passion of two women for each other. The plausible setting, the lack of nudity and the sensuality expressed by their hands and posture makes this scene crackle with eroticism. This was drawn for the pleasure of men, but one can imagine the effect it might have had on women, and perhaps the artist(s) did. Der Liebesbrief (The Love Letter) - Ferdinand Georg Waldmueller (1845) The glow of the lamp reveals the glow in their hearts as they share the most intimate details written in a letter of love. The fingers on her shoulder and the warmth in her eyes reveal that the connection (love) between the women is immediate, real and profound. Bathers - Pierre Olivier Joseph Coomans (1816-1889) There is a subtle distinction between "nymphs" and "bathers" with the latter being more plausible and perhaps easier to fantasize. These two young women are enjoying sharing their beauty and feelings of sexuality, perhaps for the first time, with each other. The blond woman fills the scene inviting viewers to visually caress her body up and down and when we pause at her face we can empathize with her emotional state and follow her eyes to the sitting woman whose emotions we can only infer. Her pose is reminiscent of Venus or Aphrodite and perhaps she is feeling like a Goddess of Love as she holds the gaze of her companion. La Chute du Chat (Two Women Disturbed by a Cat) - Jean-Alphonse Roehn (1800s) The artistic movement of Realism, whose aim was to depict contemporary life, as-it-was, was growing in the mid 19th century. This painting clearly reflects realism - the room looks messy and worn and the two women are clearly of modest means. The fact that they are show together in bed strongly implies lesbianism but in the most mundane, everyday kind of way, which delivers the shocking message that women can be lovers in everyday, real life. This painting is not so much erotic voyeuristic fantasy as it is a revelation of social reality. Anna Henriette Stelzner with her friend Frau von Braunschweig, 1849 The Realism movement in art started to gain traction at roughly the same time as photography was becoming technologically and commercially viable in the middle of the 19th century. The current state of photography made it most suitable for capturing highly detailed portraits in a fraction of the time and effort required to produce a portrait painting. Here we see two young women portrayed intimately suggesting a possible romantic friendship (or more?). This photograph was taken by Anna's husband Carl Ferdinand Stelzner who was an early pioneer of photography. The Tepidarium - Theodore Chasseriau (1853) A tepidarium was a heated room where bathers could relax and dry off after bathing in another chamber. The atmosphere here is indeed hot and highly erotic for a number of reasons. Our attention is first drawn to the half naked woman dancing sensually for the seated woman whose seems to be frozen in appreciation. Their eyes are locked together suggesting mutual arousal and pleasure. As we look around the room we can see other women are enjoying the performance while others are looking away to exchange furtive, suggestive glances. One woman appears to be looking directly at us, the viewer, inviting us (women) to participate in the erotic spectacle of women being aroused by other women. This painting was exhibited at the Salon in Paris in 1853 and although mostly intended for male viewing it is very likely that it was seen, and meant to be seen by women. Two Women Chatting by the Sea, St. Thomas - Camille Pissarro (1856) Here we see two African-Caribbean women stopping to chat on a sandy pathway. They are bathed in warm sunlight and a soft sea breeze which adds to the pleasure of their friendly encounter. They are ordinary working women but posses dignity and self-respect which is worthy of our admiration. The Reapers - Jules Breton (c.1860) These peasant women are also admirable as they walk home together after a long day of hard work in the fields. We can see that they care for, and support one another which suggests strong affectionate bonds and a high degree of group unity and cohesion. This unity, and the affectionate bonds which support it is an invisible, but real beauty that is revealed by their actions towards each other. A viewer who empathizes with them becomes, in a sense, part of their supportive group. Nymphs Bathing - Arnold Böcklin (1863-6) Böcklin was a Symbolist painter, a movement which strove to represent absolute truths in an indirect manner. Here we see two naked women bathing together in small stream shaded by a few trees. The golden wheat fields surrounding them gives their bathing place the aura of an rejuvenating , restorative oasis surrounded by desert. The standing woman's arms are spread wide open as an invitation for a loving embrace to the kneeling woman perhaps suggesting that loving intimacy between women is a kind of emotional oasis in a harsh patriarchal world. Le Sommeil (The Sleepers) - Gustave Courbet (1866) Courbet was a leading member of the Realism movement and was a prestigious painter when he was commissioned by a Turkish diplomat to paint this explicit scene of lesbians sensually coiled together after making love. On the bed is a broken pearl necklace which is evidence of their intense romantic struggle. The theme of lesbianism was a popular one in contemporary erotica, and it was a recognized social phenomena but was associated with prostitution and didn't enjoy public moral approval. The public reaction to this painting, which was devoid of any ambiguity or delicacy, was one of shock and it was forbidden to be shown publicly until 1988. Within the art world it was well known and influenced the work of subsequent artists. Devant Courbet - Thomas Levy-Lanse (2011) The public reaction to Le Sommeil today remains mixed. Seen through a feminist lens it is a work of male imagination which objectifies women and fetishizes lesbianism for a male audience. Others see it as an important and realistic portrayal of lesbians which has had a positive influence on the public acceptance of lesbians and LGBTQ rights. The above painting shows a guide telling a group of women about the painting as they are viewing it which raises questions about how these women are experiencing the painting. Are they seeing it through modern cultural lenses? How does it make them feel? Would women of the 19th century feel differently about it than than women of today?

  6. Hi, so as you all may know that I have been on here for over a year now and I just want to say how happy I am that I found shy's and that I am eternally greatful/thankful to the creaters of this site. However, I am really starting to feel alone not when I am on here but offline. I sometimes feel like I am living a secret life or at least that I am keeping this big secret. Its like I can't tell anyone about being Bi, and If I do I can get anything from good reactions to straight up horrible reactions depending on the person. Also, I feel because of my age that many might just see it as people in my life are influencing me, or that its a phase. Not that age is really important at least in my opinion I just think in my case it might play a role. Does anyone else experience this? If so how do you deal with it? Thanks for reading I appreciate it!
  7. So I am hearing on the news this morning that by 2019 the government wants GP’s to ask patients to define their sexuality when having a face to face consultation. I’m glad it’s that long away, gives me time to think what I would say as I am a very complicated person with all sorts of issues bound up in my sexuality. Of course we have the right not to answer the question. ‘No comment’ might be my best response, what would be yours to such a question when you perhaps were not feeling too well anyway?
  8. I have always had a close relationship with my mother. The one thing we butt heads about it is my sexuality. She is in deep denial, refusing to believe that I am a lesbian. She keeps telling me, "You need to find the right guy," and "If you marry a woman, I'm not going to be a part of that." She thinks that only straight marriages are valid and are for people who want to raise children together. She also thinks that kids need both a mom and dad, and that gay/lesbian couples who raise families in her words, raise "messed up" kids because children raised without one biological parent will always want to know about that missing parent. I know in my heart that I am a lesbian and want kids. Hearing my mom say all this homophobic crap bums me out. I have tried for years to get her to see things differently but it's like talking to a brick wall. How do I come to terms with the fact that my mom is not going accept my sexuality or the family I hope to have someday?
  9. I fall between being bisexual/demisexual/sapio. When I was 19 I came out to one of my closest friends but never felt the need/urge to come out to anyone else. Growing up I thought I just admired other women in a girl crush kind of way and didn't get sexual urges when I kissed my girl friends, like I did with guys. It was only until my late teens when I actually recognised how much I liked this girl at my college - even one of the guys in my class noticed I did and playfully pointed it out. I liked another girl in my class too but we were friends. I still didn't quite understand my sexuality like I do now. I don't really discuss who I like with my friends/family. I only really discuss briefly whether I've had a date but ive always been a private person in that retrospect. I actually find having to tell people who I'm dating and why rather exhausting. Hetero people can date the opposite sex and not have to be questioned about it beyond who the person is and what they do. Where as for an LGBTQ+ person it's like we have to prepare for a Ted talk and Q&A... "is the other person gay or bi" "why have you hidden this from me" "so are you gay now" etc. I just want to be like Illana from Broad City. Unapologetically dating whoever she wants and not having any questions asked. Just being her!
  10. About 10 months ago, i made friends with a girl who walked into my bar while i was working. She'd just moved here from out of state and was exploring the city and stumbled upon the place. I thought i caught a "not straight" vibe from her right off, but that day I soon heard her make a remark about how she's not into women, but she'd spend $2 to see boobs (in response to one of our bar regulars saying he'd bought someone a $2 beer to see her boobs), so i pushed any thought i might have out of my head. She's not into women. Then found out a few days later that she was my new neighbor, and we've been super close ever since. She might be my best lady friend right now, actually. She's always loudly proclaimed she was asexual, so I completely believe(d) that. She's always being hit on, by men and women alike, and she's always politely and jokingly deflected any advance. Like, always. She's been on a couple of dates, but never got very excited about them, and always ended anything very quickly. I've never made any advance, by the way, and I often end up running any creeper hitting on her off of i can tell she isn't into it. . Anyway. She's always been very affectionate... it's in her personality. She's that way with almost anyone, if she's friends with them. So it's not just directed at me. She'll always slap my ass, hug me, kiss my cheek, tell me she's gonna fight my husband to the death for me, we're gonna get married, etc. It's all joking. But lately I'm starting to think she's not totally straight/asexual. I say this because... a few weeks ago, one of the bar regulars (a woman) who always hits on her was hugging her goodbye, and sneak kissed her on the lips. Neighbor girl looked shocked/not exactly happy, and said she was not expecting that, while Regular Chick said that was exactly what she intended to do. Which angered me a bit, because Neighbor has turned Regular down multiple times when she's made sexual advances (Regular girl has also informed me that she WILL have sex with me, despite me telling her im not interested... it's a weird scenario, she's very aggressive), and i don't think it's okay for ANYONE to go against someone else's wishes/boundaries, regardless of gender. Again, I'm very protective of Neighbor and get really mad if she's made uncomfortable. Anyway. About a week later, we were drunk and Neighbor was telling me goodbye, and kissed me directly on the lips. Which shocked me (not in a bad way, that's just never happened), but i brushed it off. Then about a week after that, she and i were ordering shots and I was sitting on a barstool with my legs tucked up and my ass kinda in the air, leaning over the bar to order. She slapped my ass, told me how fine it was, and asked me why i "gotta make her question her sexuality" and she's "supposed to be asexual, that's what she tells everyone". And that she's gonna steal me away from my husband. She and my husband are very close also, by the way, so that sort of joking isn't uncommon. I basically brushed that off too, because joking about being in love with me is a thing she does. Anyway, last night, we were out again, and we all got a little crazy. I was flirting super hard all night with my new coworker's girlfriend (who I'm kinda starting to crush on a little bit). I honestly don't remember at all what lead up to this, other than the fact that she was about to leave.... but Neighbor grabbed my face and kissed me again, only this time it wasn't a quick peck, she actually used a little bit of tongue, and made it last for a few seconds. I'm sure we said our goodbyes and "i love you"s afterward, then she left. But i can't completely remember. Is she really asexual/straight? Like, really? I'm not asking because I'm necessarily interested (only because i don't allow myself to have feelings for unavailable people, and when someone states a sexual orientation that indicates i don't fit into their scope of attraction, i take their word..... had i originally not heard her say she wasn't into women/is asexual, I probably would have been somewhat interested). I know most women don't do those things unless they have a reason, but you'd have to know this girl. She's a wildcard. Freespirited, boundary-less, humorous, and outside of social norms. And i don't think she's trying to play head games with me. I know she loves me and wouldn't play games. I've never given her any reason to believe she could, and even if i had, i don't think she would. She's very aware of my bisexuality (I've introduced her to my crush, and afterward she told me my crush was a beautiful woman and she can see why I'm so enamored by her). Is she curious and just comfortable enough with me to feel safe exploring those feelings? Is she really asexual? I know she can have feelings for men because she's had a crush and went on a date (which didn't work out), but I'm guessing that's more emotional than physical, so still within the realm of asexuality. I'm not reeling over this, not like i would had it been my crush saying/doing all of these things. And I'm not curious enough to ask her what's up, because that would probably be weird. I'm just confused and trying to figure it all out. I'm unsure of whether I'd want anything to come of it too, simply because i love that woman to death and would never want to ruin our relationship. She's just really suddenly giving me a "not asexual/straight" vibe again, for the first time since the first i met her and I'm trying to figure it out.
  11. We live in a time of unprecedented and constant change and sometimes it's hard to see the process of change because it's slower than our day to day concerns but when looked at from a different viewpoint or time scale some changes can be seen as occurring extremely rapidly. One example that everyone can relate to is the use of smartphones which were launched around 2005. As of 2015 smartphone use in the US was around 75%; in 10 years their use has grown from no one using them to nearly everyone, which is an incredibly fast adoption rate. The rapid and widespread adoption of new technology such as smartphones is easily evident but there are other kinds of changes occurring in our societies as well such as changes in attitudes, values and behaviours which together with technological change are aspects of cultural change. The study of cultural change has been going on for decades and one of it's most important written works is the book Diffusion of Innovations by Everett M. Rogers. It's a pretty dry read but you can get the jist of his main ideas by watching the short 3 minute youtube video below: What does the above have to do with Shybi.com? Well, I recently came across a research paper published online in June 2016 entitled Changes in American Adults' Reported Same-Sex Experiences and Attitudes 1974-2014 by Jean M. Twenge et al. Twenge and her colleagues Ryne Sherhman and Brooke Wells examined the very large data set compiled by The General Social Survey (GSS) and reported on the same-sex attitude and behavioural trends they saw. We know of course that there has been a change in the acceptance of same-sex behaviour in others as gay marriage is now legal in much of the western world, but the magnitude and rapidity of the change is surprising. Twenge reports that in 1973 only 11% of Americans felt that same-sex behaviour was "not wrong at all". By 1990 the number had only increased slightly to 13%, but by 2014 the number reached 49%, and was even higher among women, reaching 54%. The number of people engaging in same-sex behaviour also showed increases over time, but not to the same extent as acceptance of same-sex behaviour in others. Still the trend shows constant and continual increases over a 25 year period from 1989-2014 and when data points are placed on a graph one gets something that looks very similar to the early stages of a Innovation Diffusion "S" curve: The pink data points are taken from the Twenge paper, and the teal data points are ones I calculated using the growth rate in the pink data. It is interesting to note that the pink data represents the "Innovator" and "Early Adapter" parts of an S curve and the teal data represents the beginning of the "Early Majority" group of an S curve. Will we actually see such increases in same-sex behaviour among women? I think we definitely could because there is no apparent reason for the existing trend to suddenly change. My conjecture is that we are seeing a series of "waves" of cultural change that are inter-related and reinforce each other: The first wave - is the acceptance of same-sex behaviour in others The second wave - is the acceptance of same-sex potential in ourselves, this is an internalization of the scientific finding that women's sexuality is fluid and can be influenced by environmental factors, which are increasingly showing same-sex behaviour positively The third wave - is the increasing number of women who have sex with other women What will our culture look like when a large minority of say 40% of women have had sex with other women? What if the trend continues to over 50%? I think another wave of change will start: The fourth wave - major changes in how women and men relate, mate and raise families.

Two students, Julia and Auriane, decided to kiss in front of an anti-gay marriage protest using love to challenge hate. The picture went viral and in France became a symbol for gay rights activism. Apparently a movie was made about the kiss - here is a link to a trailer - https://vimeo.com/94636719
  12. Hello ladies. I find this forum in desperation of figuring some stuff out in my head. My husband, who I have been with for over 11 years doesn't really "accept" me as a bisexual female, with needs, wants, and desires for the opposite sex. While I can respect that he would like to participate, I have told him that I didn't want him to. I find that it's not fair, when I am trying to explore the same sex, and he just gets a romp with the opposite sex. I'm sure you get my drift here. I also am trying to explore more about myself, and in turn might help me be a better lover to maybe a female one day. When it comes to pleasuring myself, I resort to toys only, and never hand actions. I have a 'thing' when it comes to feeling things on my hands. I can't even stand handcream on my hands, let alone, lady juices. I am trying to learn things like how to climax with just my hands, or give myself a g-spot orgasm. Which, by the way has only happened twice. That's fine I guess, less clean up the better. But, these women look like they hare having a great time when it happens. I am a bit envious that some women here get to go multiple times, and with clitoral stimulation alone. I can't even do that without any toy action. Sometimes I hate myself because I need to learn so much about my own body. I have often thought maybe I'd learn a lot about my own body through another woman, but alas has never happened. I have only been with one woman, and that was a total of about 2 times. I'm not really experienced with the world of exploring women, or even myself. I come here searching for answers, and I hope that some of the past posts help me in finding those answers I need. This forum is a very beautiful place, and I appreciate that it exists. I thank you for taking the time to read this. -moonlightgrrrl.
