Google is my education... Growing up, I'd like to think I was educated well about safe sex...if I were straight that is.
I was never taught safe sex that applied to me...so I ended up having to google it...even now I'm not too sure. My education was very 'male' heavy, so as a result I DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT SEX (that applies to me). AND I WAS TOO SHY AND INSECURE TO ASK MY TEACHERS AT THE TIME! BAH! BAH BAH!
It's ok though. I'll just stay a virgin FOREVER! AVOID THE SITUATION! Yup...that's what I'll do.

JUST IN CASE:
1st panel: Mom
2nd panel: 5th grade teacher
3rd panel: Freshman Biology teacher.
4th panel: Me having to look up safe sex for lesbians

My dad avoided the issue and gave me a hulking textbook on the female sex.

No, seriously, it's like three hundred plus pages and covers everything from females in the media to how to masturbate. Covers all forms of protection, too, which is damn helpful. Look in the sex education area in book stores, grab the most ridiculously big book about females, and thrum through the index. It'll be there. Hopefully. I think. Yeah, most likely.

Argh, it pisses me off how male-centric our society is, especially when it comes to things like sex. If anything, it should be more about women as women's reproductive organs are much more complicated. It's like how a large majority of women have never had an orgasm and don't know how to have one. That sort of thing apparently doesn't matter. Anyway, safe sex for lesbians is complicated, since most protection IS geared toward a penis. There are dental dams for oral, and of course, using any sort of toy if you do would require a condom. Otherwise, it's just a matter of being careful. There are certain things lesbians have to be less worried about than people who have a penis involved, and there are some that they may have to be even more concerned about, as there isn't suitable protection. I think the biggest thing to watch out for would be any form of herpes or hpv. Not only are those incredibly common, they're transferred by skin to skin contact. So yeah, there are definitely options, they're just a little more cumbersome than others. Good luck figuring it out, though. I think your best bet is to have both partners get tested at the beginning of the relationship and make sure you guys are exclusive, but that's just my opinion! (Keep in mind that HPV and herpes can't be found through a blood test. The only way to test for it is after an outbreak. Fortunately women are much more likely to show signs than men, however.)

Haha, sorry, you probably didn't need all of that, but my comment turned rambly. I'm starving, so I'm all delirious, heh.

@mountainmildew: FFFF I'm gonna see if my colleges library has some books like that...thanks for the tip!

@Lesbian Comics: I know that we don't know one another, but feel free to ask me questions if you're having a hard time finding certain information. I taught LGBT and safe sex seminars for several years when I was a little younger.

I don't even talk about sex with my parents, and even though my mother and I are close I don't talk about it with her it is weird. not my sisters ether... so I know almost nothing about safe sex with another girl. :< I want to know so bad... ;_;

My school does have much sex-ed at all. o.o
Just "DON'T DO IT!"

Living in South Carolina, my school taught abstinence only sex ed, which we all know is BS.

No, seriously.
This is really annoying.

When the teacher brings up sex, it's always surrounding semen, erections and stuff, while I'm just sitting there like "Uuuuuhhhhhhh... Meep?"

For all the problems you DON'T want to talk about with your parents...

...There is google. :D

Daww I've read all your comics at once. I'm looking for a long time for good lesbian comics (and movies, too). The most stuff I found was like "I'm lesbian. I'm way more intelligent as the rest of the world. I'm super cool and alone. And the whole world hates me. 'Cuz I'm lesbian.".
It's always boring or bitching.
So I'm really happy to find your work. ^^
I can't wait for more. Every post of yours is just funny and super cute. :D

Google - best friend for shit you don't know and don't really want to ask people personally about.

I'm bi so this is really becoming a bigger issue now that I'm getting older. All school tells us now is SEX: DON'T DO IT UNTIL YOU'RE OLDER. Previous years in school everyone only talked about A (penis) being insert to B (vagina) equaling babies. Never was there talk about sex when you're bi or gay. School is probably the worst place for sex ed to ever happen if you want any definitive information. They only ever say either DON'T DO IT or HERE'S THINGS TO POSSIBLY PROTECT YOU.

There are people who just aren't straight but heck to us if they're going to talk about that stuff in school.

Sorry I'm kind of raging now. I'll stop while I'm ahead.

Oh dear... Another rant worthy subject!

Long story short, society needs to grow up and look at the big picture. And needs to stop being so narrow minded!

I really love this comic, it's so funny and enjoyable to read, but at the same time it shows a lot of realism to the life of a Lesbian. I think it'd be great if you got your comic published in a magazine geared toward young adults, it'd really make youth stuggling to come to terms with their sexual identity feel really not so alone!

En Pointe You know, you raise a good point. Sex ed is great for educating you about safe hetero sex, but not any other orientation sex. Hmmmmmm...this makes me contemplate.

Books and Google At a time in my life when I would literally read anything you handed me; my mom gave me this book. I forgot what it was called but it was very informative and talked about multiple forms of sex. Of course, at first, my reaction was, "What is this...?" And then... O.O But I'm pretty thankful for it. I became a pretty informed teen. Also google.

safe sex @Lesbian Comics: i never thought about this. schools really should teach children about this sort of thing. im loving this series btw, its really helped educate me more about lesbianism

oh god this sums up my life perfectly
I'm practically the sex ed teacher of my lunch on the many ways to have safe (Heterosexual) sex but I have no idea how I'M supposed to do it.
This makes me so sad :(

My school goes over a little bit of stuff for those who are interested in the same gender... our school is pretty ok with gays... we don't have any real bullying... so... yeah

Safe Sex @Lesbian Comics: Hi. I am about the same age as you and I also had to google how to have lesbian safe sex. I think this is really sad.. I don't see why people tend to think it does not exist. It is just as important as "straight" sex (although no pregnancy to worry about lol) and it deserves to be told to the public. Safe sex in general should be taught in all schools! Thanks, I really life your comic :)

Sex ed In my highschool sex ed/health class, I happened to get the lesbian teacher, so while everyone else was like, "why are we even learning this?" I was secretly like "thank god."

I asked my sex-ed teacher about teaching safe sex for gays, and she said everything they were teaching also applied to them. They only talked about condoms. ONLY CONDOMS! No dental dams or latex gloves! Very mad at her. shame sex-ed teacher shame

In our school library we have a book all about girls and sex and it even has a section about Lesbian relationships. And it wasn't biased! This is a very religious school I go to so I was just like

In college a girl I knew in another college (via chat line - oh the start of the world wide web in 1990s) said they were taught how to put the condoms on (bananas) because the "guys sometimes forgot". @_@ Funny, as a guy I was never taught about how to put condoms on.

It seems really hard to find people who are informed about safe sex in the lesbian community because it's often seen as "unsexy" or something. True point.
