As one reader writes:
My girlfriend and I have been together for four years. For the first 2 years of our relationship we didn’t even own a vibrator. We decided to spice things up and bought one but honestly rarely use it. We very easily give each other what we need without the use of toys but both agree that if thats what you are into, “Go for it!”
Just as with any group of people, there is a huge range of sexual activity that lesbians participate in, including being celibate and not having sex at all. But because we live in a world that places a lot of emphasis on the idea of vaginal intercourse, people sometimes think that if there isn't a penis involved during sex play, then the sex isn't real.
But as plenty of lesbians and bisexual women can't tell you, that simply isn't accurate.
