'Whether we like it or not, what makes us different from our hetrosexual sisters can never be our politics alone, our lesbian sex is just as important part of what makes us what we are.' Lesbianism is fashionable and fetish can be fun. But for the last two decades lesbians have never agreed about sex. Wars wage over butch and femme, S&M, monogamy and non-monogamy or the politics of queer, giving them a higher profile than ever before.

Emma Healey offers a bold analysis of the lesbian psyche and sexuality.
