Researching sex between women

A/Prof. Juliet Richters

Sex between women does not get the attention in public health that goes to sex between men or heterosexual sex (especially commercial sex and sex among the young). HIV is almost never transmitted between women, and ‘No deaths = no dollars’. With so little research material available, how then do we understand sex between women? How does the lesbian community understand itself sexually? As well as being less researched than the gay community, it lacks the vigorous industry of filmed pornography, phone sex, sex venues, internet sites, and sex contact publications that helps shape gay male sexual communities.
