How do I do Tribadism?

This is a question I see asked a lot on forums that I visit.  As is the case with all Tribadism information, there isn’t much in the way of guidance and techniques out there.   There are many women who have heard about tribbing or seen it in videos and photos and want to learn how to do it so they can enjoy it too.  Starting next week I’ll be bringing you a series of articles describing and discussing various Tribadism techniques.

One thing I’ve noticed is theres no absoluate right and wrong way to do it and each technique has many variations for women of different shapes and sizes and stimulation preferences.  The most important thing  is to lean as much as you can and try differet techniques to see what works.  From what I’ve found, most lesbian and bisexual women either love it or hate it when it comes to Tribadism with very little in between ground.  Maybe some of them are just using the wrong techniques and so aren’t getting the greatest benefits.

At this point you’re probably thinking, ‘Wait a minute, you’re a guy, what would you know about doing Tribadism?’  Yes of course I’m not a women (unfortunatley :P) and I’ve never done Tribadism myself so I can’t possibly know exactly how to do it.   However, what I can do is use my skills in research, networking and writing to bring together information fom a number of sources and construct an interesting and informative article.  I’ve provided links to all of my sources below and I encourage you to follow the links and read up on the information provided if you want more information.

TRIB-0040 Julija vs Tanya_N: Tribgirls- Review

Producer: Tribgirls
Rating: (pending)

Tanya and Juliga put on a great show in this video which is a little short at 17 minutes but is a great watch none the less. Trib-0040 encapsulates a number of things that I really like to see in porn videos. One of which is the apparent unplanned nature of the positions and action undertaken throughout the passion. Sapphic Erotica, one of my other favourite Tribadism sites, promotes itself as providing natural and unplanned sex but I find that their videos obviously have quite a bit of guidance compared with Tribgirls videos such as this.

Lets start at the beginning. There isn’t much of a Pre-story for this video, the girls start off with a prolonged stare down which progresses into a playful argument. There are no subtitles so its impossible to know what they are saying but it appears to be a friendly comparison of who has the better tits and later pussies. The video description states that the video is “Not for those who like it more tenderley, but rather a serious trib competition,” but to me this is way off. I found the action to be much less aggressive than the typical Tribgirls production. Although its true theres not much tenderness throughout the video and that it is an erotic competition, the smiles and giggles at the begginning from both girls suggest to me that is was more a bit of friendly rivalry rather than a serious competition.

Another thing that featured in this video that I quite enjoy is different and interesting positions, keeping the content fresh. Right at the start of the action the girls are standing and wrestling with each other, having a kind of breast battle. Their bodies are aligned and pressed together and their pussies are bumping and grinding every now and then, treating us to the very rare standing position.

At one point during the tribadism on the bed, Tanya twists her body around and they grind in a position sort of halfway between sitting scissors and inverse scissors. Then she turns the full way around and they have a go at inverse scissors which is very erotic in my opinion. They even take it another step and do a position where they have their legs locked in the scissor position but they are both twisted around so they are ass to ass… now this is HOT! The level of intensity is kept high throughout almost the whole video and its great to watch the frantic nature of these two girls who obviously really want each other.

The climax wasn’t as climactic as I had hoped and was pretty much the same intensity as the rest of the video. Both girls were pretty although I thought that Julija was a bit too skinny, Tanya has nicer curves and a nice tan as well. Therefore best on set goes to Tanya for the better look and her creativeness in the tribbing, changing it up with a number of interesting and erotic positions.

The other customer reviews are mostly positive. The things they liked most were the efforts from both women and the eveness of the match. Both girls are left exhausted and panting at the end as testament to their long struggle. Some customers said that they didn’t like the fact that the entire video was tribadism and there wasn’t really much esle but I think that this negative was offset by the many different tribbing positions used.

Real Sex in Porn vs Acting and Fake Orgasms

This is actually a very interesting question which has many aspects to it. I will try to put all my thoughts on the subject here and hopefully we can get some reader input in the comments below.

Many porn producers use the description of ‘Real Sex’ to bring customers in so it must have some value. The first line from Sapphic Erotica’s webmaster, Bailey, on their ‘About’ page is, ‘What I like to see are pretty girls kissing and actually having sex with each other.’ The thought and the knowledge that the sex is really real certainly has a drawing effect which makes porn much more enjoyable to watch. However, we can pretty much all attest that the sex we see in porn is actually nothing like real life sex, as this discussion explores, and the porn industry doesn’t deny this. So what is this ‘Real Sex’ that we desire to see.

There’s an heated discussion about this on LezLove in regards to Abby Winters, an amatuer porn site that also plugs the ‘Real Sex’ aspect of their videos. When people watch porn they usually expect to see more than simply two people having sex infront of a camera, although there is a ‘home movies’ niche which provides exactly that. I think that people want to see videos where the participants are truely enjoying the sex as much as people in real life enjoy sex but they want it presented in a way which is most stimulating for them. This creates an interesting dilemma, as there are certain positions that a very enjoyable for the participants but don’t look like much on camera and vica versa. The director needs to make a decision about how much of a trade off to make between real sex and good visuals to produce the best product.

Is there a difference between sex that looks real and sex that is real? If the performance is significantly good to be beleivable, will the knowledge that its not actually real devalue the video? I would like to say yes but if we look at mainstream movies then the answer is obviously no, is it different for porn? Everybody knows that the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker aren’t real people but that doesn’t mean the Star Wars isn’t enjoyable. However, despite what the characters in Boogie Nights want us to beleive, porn models are not actors. They may be able to throw in some fake moans here and there but I think it would take a very gifted and dedicated performer to reproduce the passion of really real sex and make it believable.

Even though there isn’t much Tribadism content in porn I’ve seen it mentioned in a few places that it is still over-represented in porn compared to the amount in real life.  Therefore, in order to get the amount of Trib that we do see, some models must be faking it or they’ll do it but not get much out of it which is the opposite of what we want.

Sensitive Tribbing: Sapphic Erotica- Review

Producer: Sapphic Erotica
Rating: (pending)

This Sapphic Erotica video starts off with two girls talking in quiet whispers on the bed. It would’ve been nice if I knew what they were saying because dirty talk is something that its typically missing from Sapphic Erotica productions. I was looking forward to watching and reviewing this movie because, as you may have noticed, it has ‘Tribbing’ in the title, suggesting that its more Tribadism orientated that their other vids.

However, despite the title, dildos are the primary focus of the video rather than Tribbing. Normally I’m not a big fan of toys but I haven’t found it a problem with Sapphic Erotica because they use them sparingly throughout their videos so it actually makes a nice change when they’re featured. The girls also managed to find a few varied positions to use them in which kept things interesting.

Both girls are good looking, Melissa is a stunning blonde and Olivia is a dark redhead. We don’t get to have a good look at Olivia’s face until well into the video which is a pitty because she is very cute. She is also by far the more vocal of the two and we are treated to her passionate moans throughout. She also gets quite into it, closing her eyes and twisting and pulling her nipples, trying to help herself get off as Melissa devours her pussy.

The Tribadism stint is a bit over a minute long and is the best I’ve seen from SE so far (although this is only my 3rd review). The girls position their pussies against one another, lay back into the open scissors position and go at it quite energetically. The video description says they “trib to loud orgasms” but I didn’t think their level of enjoyment was much higher than the rest of the video. I’m still waiting to see a video where they really build up to a climax and cum through trib, but this video was definately on the right track.

Best on set is a close call but would have to go to Olivia for vocal and passionate performance throughout. I would’ve liked to see some of the dildoing time taken up by more tribbing, but apart from that it was a solid video.

TRIB-0001 Eva_N vs Sarah: Tribgirls- Review

Producer: Tribgirls
Rating: (pending)

This is my first review of a Tribgirls video, however I have done an overall Tribgirls and DWW review which can be found in the Trib Info section of the website.

Eva N and Sarah are two of the hottest Tribgirls models and they are in a number of productions together. The video is a good length at 23 1/2 minutes and costs 6 credits. Eva is wearing a tight fitting aerobics outfit and Sarah a hot school girls uniform. The video has a simple plot, like most Tribgirls videos the models have an argument which leads to a fight and some wresting then the action makes an awkward progression to become aggressive sex which both girls seem to enjoy.

If you’ve seen Tribgirls before then you’ll know that most of the models are Eastern European and don’t speak English. Some of the videos, such as this one, have english subtitles but its not the same as hearing it first hand. There is kissing in this video, at first its almost painful to watch but as the sex turns to passionate the kissing gets better and better until its almost at the level of Sapphic Erotica (one of the best kissing sites IMO).

One thing I like to see in porn is a storyline before the foreplay even starts. I find its easier to get into the scene and enjoy it if I have a fair idea of where the girls came from, how they got here and why are they having sex. This is missing from Sapphic Erotica where the girls jump straight into the foreplay and sex as soon as the video starts. Tribgirls is much better as they usually have a pre amble and plot that carries throughout the whole video. However, I often feel alienated when the girls go from a heated argument to passionate sex. It’s not a natural progression and is difficult to follow, leading to much of the attentiveness and interest built up in the first part of the video being lost.

The tribadism in this video is something to behold. The girls go from fully clothed tribbing to semi naked to fully naked, each time putting in a little pussy grinding action. Throughout the video, legs are locked in both the dominant and sitting scissor positions, the dominant is especially good with Eva on top grinding away and Sarah gazing up into her eyes with a look of real lust. The rare missionary position is also used as well as one of my faviourites; cowgirl. The positions change regularly, giving each girl a turn on top, but not so regularly that we don’t get to see the passion building between the two girls.

When they are not tribbing they are breast to breast, thigh to thigh, thigh to pussy or full body on body with plenty of kisses. At one point Sarah straddles Eva’s face, forcing the slim blond to take a mouthful of her wet pussy. It was very hot and a great way to mix up the action, Sarah returned the favour a few minutes later.

Once the girls find their prefered position we are treated to a tribadism finish as they’re meant to be. The grinding, moaning and whimpering get progressively louder and more passionate as the girls near their orgasms. Eva’s tits bounce up and down as she grabs a handful of Sarah’s ass and grinds her way to extasy.

Best on set goes to Sarah for her better acting, cute school girl outfit and lovemaking creativity. The other customer reviews (available on Tribgirls website) were mostly positive, one person expressed the complaint that there wasn’t many closeups which I agree the video was lacking. Although it would be very difficult to get those shots amongst the aggressive lovemaking in this video.

Blog News


Ok, just a quick note with some news. If you remember a post I made the other week about and they’re great new Tribadism channel, I’ve just taken it a bit further and created a Tribadism blog, ‘RudeBlog,’ within the Rude website. I’ll use the blog to follow the Tribadism scene within Rude in terms of videos, pics, blogs and board postings.

Blog Visibility

I’ve just created a Technorati Profile, one of a number of steps I’m taking at the moment to increase the visibility of this blog and hence the website. Hopefully my efforts will get some more people interested in our niche so we can build some community and start making some noise to encourage more content. If you are interested in standing up and being counted then I suggest you head on over to the Tribadism Forum and contribute to the discussions there. Your comments are also welcome at my blog here if you have the time.

Livingroom Passion: Sapphic Erotica- Review

Producer: Sapphic Erotica
Rating: (pending)

Theres a lot of kissing in this video including a solid 2 minutes of tongue tied action at the beginning. The mics are placed so that the lipsmacking sounds can be heard loud and clear but they don’t deafen you. This video was a good length, about 20 mins, and the two girls, Zafira and Gina, are both easy on the eyes.

Video highlights include the large amount of kissing, the tidy length and a pleasing sequence where Zafira knelt on the couch with her legs apart and let Gina have a taste of her wet pussy from her position seated on the floor… hot.

The tribadism content of this video was disapointing. It barely warranted being mentioned as trib. The girls locked legs in the scissor position for about 90 seconds, not that long to begin with, but the actual pussy grinding only last for maybe 30 seconds or less. The remainder of the time, Gina rubbed her own pussy until she came. Some may dig this as it was different and its always good to see something different, but since bumping donuts is what I wanted to see, from that perspective it was a let down.

Best on set for this one is difficult to pin. In the brief stint of actual tribbing, both girls got into it but then Zafira took over so I’m going to give it to her; a very narrow victory.

Appart from the lack of trib, I had no other problems with this video. However, there wasn’t really anything that stood out for me either. Given the large amount of lesbian porn out there, it wouldn’t be difficult to find hundreds of videos of this quality. If you’re going to Sapphic Erotica on a trib hunt then I wouldn’t bother with this video, focus your downloading time on some of the videos more fitting to your tastes.

Scissor Sex Workout… What The?

This is something I came across when I was exploring the phrase ‘Scissor Sex’ on Google. Scissor fucking, scissor sex or just scissoring is a term for Tribadism popularised by the Dikes episode of SouthPark. Come to think of it, as a result of South Park, its probably a more widely known word to the general community than the actual term of Tribadism.

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of information out there for this so called ‘Scissor Sex Workout,’ apart from a short instructional video on Youtube. Basically its one of the positions in a new get fit program from a company called Srew The Gym, who sell instructional DVD’s for learning how to do a Sex Workout. The video tells us that the Scissor Positions exercises the triceps, hamstrings and abs of both participants. The company is targeting hetero couples who want to avoid ‘that horrible trip to the gym,’ and as ‘exercises for two that end in a smile,‘ but it shouldn’t be too hard to repackage the idea and sell it to the lesbian community or even females in general.

How many of you know women who go to the gym together? All you need to do is mention the scissor sex workout to them then stand back and wait for the juicy results… hopefully. Its actually not a bad idea. For me, the hardest thing about going to the gym and maintaining a program is the motivation, and what could be more motivating than sex? Genious.

Jordan Capri Tribbing- Review

Producer: Lightspeed TV
Rating: (pending)

I’m not sure of the actual name of this video… not even sure it it has a name. The three models involved are Jordan Capri, Taylor Little and Dirty Aly and the video is branded with Lightspeed TV. All three models have individual sites in the Lightspeed Media Corporation network owned and run by Steve Lightspeed. If you’ve been interested in the online teen lesbian scene as I have then you would be familiar with the lightspeed netwrok and, by association, Jordan Capri as one of their most succesful models.

My general impression of this video was ‘amatuerish,’ so much so that I’m inclined to think that it might be a kind of rough pre-release cut for promotional uses. Thats ok if thats the look they were going for but if not then its a bit of a problem, I don’t think it adds anything to the video at any rate.

The video is only about 5:45 minutes long and consists of all body on body contact. The girls start off naked and apply some baby oil before rubbing their bodies together on the floor. Its like watching a slow, erotic dance and is quite mesmerising. The girls take it in turns to be the receiver of the rubbing where the other two focus their attention on her, one rubbing on each side of her body. Jordan Capri’s curves and the way she moves her body and rubs her tits up and down Taylor little’s figure is very erotic.

The video finishes up with about 2 1/2 mintues of Tribadism where the girls take it in turns to grind each other. They use the standard sitting scissors position and continue to display their expertise in body on body contact by putting on a brief but nice show. The video rounds up with a short stretch of high energy pussy bumping and then slamming from Taylor Little to Jordan Capri, making herself cum.

As a whole its not a bad short video and a good break from your standard 20 minutes of fingering and licking. The tribbing is reasonably good quality and finishes well. I would’ve liked to have seen both or all of the girls get into it as much as Taylor did but thats ok. Best on set goes to Jordan Capri for efforts in the tribbing and those nice curves that I just couldn’t keep my eyes off.

Just as a side note; there were times when Jordan would have a look of lust and enjoyment on her face then seconds later it would be uninterested or smiling as if she were faking. Some people may dig this playful activity or even think that it makes the video more natural but it gives me the impression that the girls aren’t as into it as they want us to think. That makes for an interesting discussion, however, which I will leave for another post for another day.

Tribadism Forum Discussion

One of the things that I think is really holding back the growth of our niche is the fact that there are so many terms and definitions to describe the same thing. Its probably difficult for a potential content producer to determine how big the Tribadism market is when some people are calling it Tribadism, others say trib or tribbing then theres pussy grinding, scissoring, bumping uglies or any of the 80 other colloquialisms to describe the same exact thing. Then, once the true term is known, you have to wade through the many different defintions to decide what people really mean and want when they say Tribadism.

I’ve seen the effects of this a lot when I search the interent for videos and other trib material. There are many discussions in forums and on blogs but they’re all calling it different things so no one sees the connection between them. Thats why I was happy to launch the Tribadism Forum with a friend of mine. I’m hoping that we can develop it into a central location to discuss all things trib related and let the world know how many people actually dig this Tribadism thing. Along with that I think we need to develop some official definitions so we all know what we’re talking about.

Discussion Forums and communities can become very powerful things. The topics can become informative and information rich as they combine the knowledge of every participant and also stimulate additional thought to create a body of knowledge that is greater than the sum of its individual contributers.

Therefore I encourage you to head on over to the Tribadism Forum and show your support by at least signing up and if you have the time, contributing to the discussion.

Heres a list of Tribadism discussions I’ve found on the web:
