Simple, sweet, and incredibly sensual: these two beautiful, beautiful women sharing a romantic hug, ca. 1920s-1930s.

I have a really wonderful collection of vintage lesbian photos - not really erotica like this, but more real-life snapshots. There was a particular couple of decades when photography moved out of the studio and became something you could do on your own, but before you sent film out to be processed. The techies of that era had their own mini-dark rooms in the basement. That was the era when snapshot photography was born, and when gay men and lesbians started documenting their relationships, because they could create and keep photos themselves. Once it because more common to send film to be processed, gay photography on a wide scale went back into the closet. But those couple of decades of gay and lesbian relationships are now showing up on eBay - when you can get them away from universities and museums who purchase them from their collections.
I have a decent-sized collection of these photos framed in my kitchen.
I see nothing wrong with 2 women sharing and enjoying each other. A woman's body is so beautiful and I believe is more appreciated by another woman then a man.
I am bisexual and love at times a man's influence on me, but sharing another woman is just as exciting and in some case even more. The feeling of her soft and smooth skin, the pleasure I receive for her touches as she presses by buttons
It seems there is more caring on a woman part then a man.
Let's face it, once a man has cum for the most part, he is through. It is when my job to clean up and let him rest.
Am I right or wrong, girls.
Michelle, speaking as one of those "came, now finished" guys, I thought I'd just add a note.
For those of us who are gay and thoroughly enjoy the company and comfort of men, it's safe to say that we can mirror this thought you have about women - "A woman's body is so beautiful and I believe is more appreciated by another woman then a man." Insert as follows: "A MAN'S body...appreciated by another MAN than a WOMAN."
Cleaning up, for two men together, is a delight and not the drudge you find it to be.
I understand where you're coming from, of course...and more power to you.
This is, truly, all in love.
