Notes from the Scene
So, the girlfriend and I are coming up on five years together. Friends and acquaintance are starting to look at me, and her, all squinty-eyed and saying, in a certain doubtful tone, "So, how's it going with Steph?" Or "Wow, five years, that's a long time. How do you do... Comments: 14

Lesbian sex and dating
Around mid-November, I started chatting online with this Southerner that pulled me in with the idea of whiskey and country karaoke. We made a date to meet for drinks on my birthday, which was also my last day of interning and I planned on staying up all night celebrating the two momentous occasions.

During the lull between award shows (yes, there is one), let’s see how many of the award nominees, presenters and show-goers are gay, have played gay, or are Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon gay.* I’ll start. Michelle Williams , winner of the 2012 Golden...

Lesbian Sports blog
I’m a sports junkie, so it makes sense that my favorite network on television is ESPN. But the reason I love ESPN isn’t just because I love sports. Sure, I watch Sportscenter every day to get my fix. But there’s more to ESPN than sports headlines, in-depth analysis and... Comments: 2

I love being a woman. Okay, one might say, this is a no-brainer—I am one after all. But there are many women who are envious of male attributes: the ability to pee standing up, fewer rules about staying out late during adolescence, being able to drink more with less impact, and they would be willing to forgo femaleness for a few days in order to enjoy the benefits of being a boy.

Because it's not cute to flounder
“I’ve spent as much time over the last 30 years as I possibly can because Italians seem so ambivalent about the modern world’s arrival.” —All Broads Lead to Rome, By Michael Wolff, Vanity Fair, September 2009 Comments: 2

As with so many other things in life, choosing the right size is almost everything. (And all you naughty girls with that vivid imagination can stop right now; this is a blog about food and cooking.) All kidding aside, here are some tips on how do you pick the perfect knife that will greatly...

The new issue of Health, or Self, I forget which, has a lesbian on the cover (trainer Jillian Michaels, looking as femmey as can be), a lesbian on the back cover (Ellen DeGeneres in her groundbreaking but now ubiquitous Cover Girl makeup ads) and mention of “partner” instead of boyfriend or husband at least once inside.

Dear Dr. Frankie, Can you please help me understand why so many women in our community resort to juvenile tactics when a relationship ends? Once we reach a certain age we should see how petty this behavior makes us look. I have several friends who rely on passive/aggressive behavior to...

Hi lovely readers, Lipstick here. I wanted to make sure you all knew that my debut novel, JUKEBOX , will be available at bookstores on Monday (Nov 15th). I’ve been working on this little tome for many many years (I took the scenic route) and am thrilled that it’s finally come to... Comments: 3

I was spending the weekend at my sister’s for a visit—brother, nieces, nephews, dogs, the whole gang was present. I hadn’t given much thought to having thrown the then current issue of Curve on the patio table. I was about to share in my good news that I’d be... Comments: 4

I’d describe both my demeanor and style as urban cowgirl. My standard outfit consists of Levi’s, a black T-shirt and Frye boots. I live in New York City and that’s pretty much an acceptable dress code for everywhere. Maybe not Le Cirque or Daniel, but I don’t frequent...

I like siting in a bar alone. No really, I do. Nothing is better on a Friday night than being single and having an appointment to stop by a bar after work to meet a friend, who is now 20 minutes late. And if you have to sit in a bar alone, the best kind of bar to sit alone in, is a lesbian...

I don’t normally watch the news or read it online. I try to stay clear of the fear mongering reporting and sensationalized news stories that have become so commonplace in our society. But as much as a try to avoid the news, reports that involve the violation of children pull me in and...
