Sappho Sounds Off On Lesbian Flicks
I have had it up to (HERE) with the heterosexual males idea of lesbian sex. Up until recently, lesbian porn has been male oriented, glossy, long-finger nailed, cucumber toting straight chicks pretending to be queer. Finally, some films are being made that show real lesbians in real sexual situations...
For as long as there have been erotic films, there have been sickening lesbian sex scenes created by men for men. If you have ever seen a "straight" porn film, you know what Iím talking about. Most straight men get off on watching two women together, but if they were to see two women holding hands at the grocery store, they would most likely be taken aback. The problem with these so called "lesbian" porn movies and "lesbian" sex scenes, is that they are unbelievably unrealistic. They are mostly all made by men to cater to the straight male perceptions of what two women do in bed. Theyíve got it all wrong obviously, and hereís why...
The people behind these films are men who use a contrived lesbian stereotype that does not, and will never exist it the real world. Lets begin with the women "playing" lesbians in these films. All of these women have super long fingernails, and all I have to say about that is "Ouch!". They also have really big hair, wear tons of makeup and are malnourished looking. Add to this the fact that they all are not so easy on the eyes, and you have a big ugly heterosexual male derived mess. But wait, thereís more! These lesbians know nothing (as in zero, zilch and nada) about lesbian sexuality. One look at any sex scene in any hetero "lesbian" film and you will see this point illustrated all too clearly. How many dykes actually get it on like that? Again, it is all a male dominated wet dream.
Hey, if I want to indulge in some lesbian porn films, I want to see a big butch daddy giving it to her femme. I want to hear some vocals other than the primate noises in hetero made films. Basically, I want it to be believable, and I sure donít want five inch pink fingernails to be a part of it. In all of these films, a man always becomes part of the scenario eventually. Right, like that would actually happen. If you are going to even bother to plunk down forty bucks on a sex fest, I suggest you look for one thatís 100% dyke produced.
Finally, some lesbian owned film companies are popping up that make high quality films and star an all lesbian cast. The two best on the market right now come from SIR Video, and they are Sugar High Glitter City and Hard Love & How to Fuck in High Heels. These two films are lesbianís lesbian porn. Whatever your sexual desires are, they most likely will be found in one of the two films. Butch on Femme, Femme on Femme, Butch on Butch, Dominant/Submissive, Daddy/Girl, Threesome...you name it, itís in there. The best part about SIR videos films is that the actors are real lesbians with their partners. Aside from this, there are a few other genuine lesbian erotica/porn films on the market. If you check out TLA video you can browse through a pretty hefty selection of films.
Not that Iím heavy into porn, but once in awhile I like to see two women getting it on, and the last thing I want to see is a hetero made "lesbian" porno. Itís like buying your morning cereal from the same company who makes insect repellent...they canít possibly get it right.
So, for all of you chicks looking for a little action, stick with sister film companies and you wonít be sorely disappointed. There has been a reemergence of proud lesbian sexuality over the past five years, and many more films are in the works that show honest and real lesbian erotica. Three cheers for the women behind these films, who through their work, are showing that thereís more to lesbian sex than a tube of lipstick and a banana.
