    I’m confused, how can you be any of the types of lesbian without wanting genital contact? It’s a conundrum, for me anyway. I don’t think I’m a lesbian, but I wouldn’t kick Rachel Maddow out of my bed!

    Although not a perfect match, I think I must be a Chapstick Lesbian. Of course, my OCD obsession with having at least five tubes of Chapstick on my person at all times might have something to do with this. And oh, the things you can do with Chapstick that one would never guess!

    hmmm, I would say that a stone femme is the giver in sexual relationships and does not wish to be touched genitally.

    You beat me to comment Trish LOL

    There are way more than ten types but had to choose ten… here are a few more types:

    Drag Kings Females who perform in drag as males. (not all are lesbians)

    Faux Queens Females who perform in drag as females. (not all are lesbians)

    Butch in the Streets, Femme in the Sheets (and Vice Versa)- self explanatory

    Bi Lesbians – attracted to both sexes

    Trans Lesbians – MTF Transgendered woman who is attracted to women.

    Straight Lesbians – A woman who identifies as a lesbian but is in a relationship with a man.

    Married Lesbians – A woman who identifies as a lesbian but is in a relationship with a man but wishes she wasn’t.

    Lesbian Recruiters – Lesbian women who only pursue straight women.

    And sometimes lipstick lesbians are straight girls who act like lesbians for attention.

    Plus there are the Studs out there…

    Give us all the types you know… there are way more than ten!
