Lesbian Sex is intended to inspire and entice lovers to broaden their sexual repertoire. Our bodies have the potential to feel an array of sensations. When we more fervently explore our sexuality, both alone and with our lovers, we uncover hidden, uncultivated desires and discover newfound pleasure possibilities. Indulging in novel, sensual activities as well as revisiting the tried and true vanilla types of sex positions will also sharpen lovemaking skills and increase intimacy between lovers, one delicious experience at a time.
Each lovemaking experience is composed of intimate moments. These moments are physical, emotional, and intellectual communications and connections between lovers, and the best sex results happen when these moments flow. Experiment with different positions to suit your mood and facilitate the type of connection you’re into pursuing. For example, Deep Breathing (#25) will arouse your mind as much as it warms your pussy, as will French Cuff (#50), which explores the sexy intrigue of dominance and submission. Sometimes we’d rather our minds take a backseat during lovemaking. For these lustful moments, choose a position like Anti-gravity Girl (#97), which is pretty much purely physical. Some positions are sensory specific; Honey Bun (#15) is about touch and truly feeling your lover’s entire body, Lickety Split (#22) is about tasting, and Diamond in the Muff (#58) encourages the recipient to watch while she’s orally pleasured.
As you strive to become a self-assured lover and to experience more pleasurable and satisfying sex, do what makes you and your lover or lovers comfortable and happy. As always, practice clean, safe, honest, responsible, and consensual sex. Buy your toys and lubrication from reputable vendors who will share with you their sexpertise for proper use. Play within your abilities and never force yourself into demanding postures. When you choose and act out a position, the only expectation going into it should be to have fun and enjoy one another as you share in some fresh loving.
In addition to providing a sort of Kama Sutra for lesbians, Lesbian Sex introduces a lexicon inspired by colleagues, friends, and lovers. Double entendres, code words, cryptic phrases, and nicknames have always been part and parcel of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community. These turns of phrases can pass as flirting, convey desires and preferences, amuse, and trigger fond memories.
Tell her how you’re looking forward to taking a Joyride (#79) with her later. Invite her to meet at your favorite café for a Tea for Two (#46), come over to your place for a Garden Party (#63), or join you at the breakfast bar for a Diamond Lil (#29). I invite you to Untangle Her Tingle (#91) in 101 ways, from Lilith and Eve (#1) to Gilding the Lily (#101), and in no particular order.

"Lesbian Sex 101" would say that this tome's instruction would be very basic (which it isn't). I was also somewhat skeptical that there could be "101 sex positions" for two women to share.
But I was severely wrong on both counts. "101 Lesbian Lovemaking Positions" (which is the title I prefer) was easily the most loving, intimate - and advanced lesbian love making instructional reference -- I had ever experienced!
As a married woman (who is also a bit bisexual), I was merely looking for a book of lovemaking suggestions - a little beyond cunnilingus -- which, incidentally, is a pleasure I already enjoy immensely with my partner.
I've only tried out a few of the positions - but it's the attitude that they encourage - that has begun to totally transform my understanding of intimacy.
When it comes to the basics - of kissing, licking, nibbling, stroking, and penetrating - with tongues and fingers, I think I've already got the use of these down pat.
With the above as a foundation, "101 Lovemaking Positions" adds rubbing, grinding, toys (both held and worn), masturbation (self and joint), g-spots, and a little anal excitedly to the mix.
But if the sum-of-the-parts can ever be greater-than-the-whole, this is it! The author, Jude Schell, successfully teaches us how to use all of the above, not as just points of contact, but in combination -- for a total body experience.
As identification, Ms. Schell uses cute names to distinguish all of the positions, like the "Velvet Rope," "Welcome Back," "Saturn's Rings," and the "Mount St. Helen" to name just a few. The ideas start out easy with familiar postures -- to reacquaint ourselves with the use of fingers and tongues, or the rubbing of ourselves together both intimately or against other bodily landmarks (such as hip bones).
Some of the positions are simple variations, such as "Priscilla's Punchbowl" where one partner straddles the other's face, but adds her own fondling or her partner (and herself) to the mix, or "Gilding the Lily" which is just the after-climax licking of your lover's labia. (One of my favorites was the "Dutch Tulip" which is performing a sixty-nine - while lying on your side, with some other thoughtful suggestions.)
But others, such as "Strawberries and Cream" which combine the straddling of thighs, the oral tweaking of one partner's breasts, with the direct stimulation by digits of the tweaker's clit--actually create a blending of touches that, in this case -- makes the sharing much more sensuous than just fingering.
For example, I never thought I'd ever enjoy grinding, using toys with women, or wearing a strap-on. But on this last point, the intercourse shown is not the main entrée, but one in a series of dishes (touches) which together provide a sumptuous meal for both lovers.
As a reassurance, each position is careful to include the direct stimulation of the clitoris (or g-spot) for at least one (if not both) of the partners, so the experience isn't merely a prelude or warm-up, but a finishing act in itself.
Speaking philosophically, Ms. Schell's book indirectly points out how our mind-set towards sex has traditionally focused around a single-point (which is a somewhat male) perspective. When using a strap-on, for example, I kept thinking "what fun is that?" thinking only of the penetration. But in "Vanilla," which is basically the missionary position, the emphasis (shown photographically) is on the entire length of contact, starting from thighs, moving upwards to the waist, breasts, faces against necks, and arms embracing. The penetration is merely an avenue and focal point to achieving this more symphonic level of interaction. The "Tight Squeeze," similarly is the most loving portrayal of "doggie style" that I'd ever seen, again for the affection with which it is given and shared. (Gee, even my hubby might benefit - and get aroused -- from studying this position's description.)
The book is illustrated with 101 totally enchanting four-color photographs of two women - a beautiful blonde, brunette, or redhead -- lovingly and caringly pleasing each other (and not just themselves) with their most intimate contact tastefully hidden by another body part or in shadow. (So, please read the descriptions carefully!)
One of my favorite positions was the "Peach Gobbler" (which is a variation of "Priscilla's Punchbowl" above) where a third participant engages either the girl on top by kissing her, or the woman underneath with oral stimulation. But the photo shown was also the most romantic portrayal of any "daisy chain" style variation I had ever seen! As a result, the idea of adding a third person to any of the hundred other postures - became a thought just too unimaginable in its pleasure for my mind to encompass.
As a quick reference, there is a handy fully illustrated checklist of all 101 positions in the back of the book. I've only ticked off a few - but it's also a helpful guide to locate the exact position you're seeking.
For the future, I think -- "Beyond Cunnilingus - 101 Lesbian Lovemaking Positions" - or something like it, would be a far more descriptive title for the book.
As a last mention, most of the bodily geometries shown would be best experienced outside of the covers, so please make sure to heat the room sufficiently - if you aren't already! (And knowing at least the basics when it comes to oral and manual stimulation would also be helpful.)
In "101 Lesbian Lovemaking Positions," Jude Schell has a created -- a masterpiece! But, obviously, one doesn't need to be a lesbian to enjoy it!
Completely ignorning the 'anal' aspects and the use of a strap on, a lot of the positions featured in this book are small variations on common sex positions.
My girlfriend and I thought that this book would show us a few things we didn't know, but honestly we have did most of the positions in our first few weeks as a couple.
Maybe this book would suit Katy Perry's fanbase or a couple of girls just getting started with a complete lack of creativity, but really this book does not have anything super exciting that a couple would not do with a little thought.
As a woman who knows how to please another woman, this kind of information just seemed to come easy to me, the book was not worth the money I spent. I could have very well written a book for boring lesbians myself and made some money.
Good investment for those who can't come up with interesting sex on their own. Also a good buy for women who like to pretend that they have penises.
Just buy the straight Kama Sutra because a LOT of these postions suggest a strap on and or vibrator.
Waste of money. If you are a lesbian, trust me, its nothing you haven't seen or tried.
Think twice about buying!
