What do lesbians do in bed? Ever wonder if what you and your girlfriend do together is the same as other lesbians? Looking at various studies of lesbian sexual behavior, Jeanne Marrazzo, MD, determined that lesbians engage in the following sexual activities:

Lesbian Sexual Behavior

  • Oral sex or cunnilingus: Very common with more than 95% of lesbians engaging in this behavior.
  • Digital-vaginal contact, which includes everything from a hand job to fisting : Very common with more than 85% of lesbians enjoying these behaviors.
  • Insertive sex with toys such as dildos: 60% do this vaginally and 25% anally.
  • Anal sex 25%.
  • Rimming or oral/anal contact: 35%.
  • Tribadism is very common with 95% of lesbians engaging in this sexual practice.
