There is a common notion that the act of sex can only be between a man and a women. And the man is usually the one giving penetration. But let’s clear this out. Giving penetration does not make you the “man”. It is important to know that strap-on and other forms of penetrative sex are not the only things lesbians can try. There are other sex toys that also enhance the experience of sex.

Moreover, it is important to know that sex drives vary from individual women. So the assumption that it is the same is also wrong.

It is all about being safe and having fun

The most crucial thing to know is that lesbian sex does not always have to be focused on orgasms. It should not be the end goal of the sexual act all the time. Sex should be about having fun and exploring. It should be about experimentation as a lesbian woman. That is always a good idea.

Additionally, it is important to remember that you can still exchange sexually transmitted infections. It is one of the risks you should be aware of. Pregnancy can also occur with some trans women. So it is important to stay protected. You can use internal condoms, dental dams and other barrier and non-barrier methods.

But there are only a limited number of tips women can use to have safe sex. But the first and most important one is to communicate with your partner. It is always better to know what they like and dislike. Just like in any other type of relationship.

At the end of the day, know what your partner’s desires, preferences, and boundaries are.
