description of a lesbian
hi all

hope you all had a fab weekend. i got to spend much of the weekend with my gf so i have woken up pretty happy on this monday morning, despite seemingly to have been struck down by the dreaded flu.

i went with my gf and a friend to watch 'sugar rush' at hyde park, for the gay and lesbian film festival. throughout the film, there were descriptions of lesbians as 'rug-munchers.' now, am i correct in believing that this term relates to the fact that many lesbians reach climax by some form of penetration from behind? or am i completely off the mark? is this true or is it just a derogratory generalisation?

as a lesbian i am mortified that i do not know the answer to this question and welcome any comment.

thanks. hope it's a good day for all.

Hi again Whatwhat24 and thanks for this post.

'Rug munching' is a derogatory term that refers to cunnilingus (oral sex) between lesbians.
