If you’re a gay woman, you’ve absolutely heard the annoying question “Do you scissor?” far too many times in your life and chances are, the answer has mostly been no. The fact is I have no idea where the misconception that all lesbians do is scissor came from, but what I do know is that question and scissoring being a tad awkward-looking has turned a lot of lesbians off of scissoring. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s not a great activity that many enjoy, and you definitely shouldn’t let the ignorant straight people of the bunch prevent you from trying it yourselves.So I figured, hey, for those of you who DO want to scissor but just don’t know how, it’s my duty, as a woman who sleeps with women who has scissored, to provide a little bit of the guide on different positions of scissoring. And just so you know, you’re under no obligation to let the straight people know and give them the satisfaction of being right.
- The Good Old Fashion Scissor
The one needs no explanation. It’s just plain legs intertwined, vulva to vulva.
- The Missionary Scissor
As implied by the title, one woman has her legs wide open, and the other woman fills the gap between them. This one requires a lot more hip moving action.
- The Chair Scissor
This one requires one woman to practically sit ontop of the other woman. I like this one because your faces are much closer together, so it’s much more intimate.
- The Thigh Scissor
Okay, this one is my favourite. Why? because you get to feel the other person’s entire body. It’s still technically considered scissoring, even though there’s no vulva to vulva contact.
Bonus fun fact: Did you know that scissoring is also just an umbrella term for any sort of rubbing against one another? So even if you’re not a woman who sleeps with other women, chances are you’ve scissored too. (Dry humping is technically scissoring!)
