What is scissoring?

Guys, I have no clue. That’s the hard, cold, honest truth. When Faith and I first started dating, I googled the hell out of this. I studied images and read articles and watched videos – but I still haven’t managed to find a satisfactory answer.

Okay, let me clarify. I can certainly tell you the practical stuff, like how it works and what it looks like. See below for a diagram, if you’re a visual learner. But I truly cannot tell you why scissoring exists, or why some lesbians enjoy it, or why it’s become such a cliché among our kind. To me, it seems like a colossal waste of energy. It’s confusing and unsexy and not at all affectionate, and it’s become the butt (no pun intended) of so many lesbian sex jokes that it makes me irate.

By all means, feel free to give it a go and form your own opinion. To each their own, and all that jazz. I’ve heard positive reviews from a lot of women, so who am I to speak negatively of it? Just be forewarned: if you’re interested in “making love” with your partner, scissoring probably isn’t the way to go. It’s the equivalent of “doggy style” in hetero circles, and nobody actually wishes for that.

I hope this answer is up to your satisfaction.
