NYMag Sex Diaries Features Weed-Smoking Bicoastal Lesbian

We feel it’s our duty to let you know whenever the New York Magazine Sex Diaries feature a queer lady. We also imagine this will encourage them to feature more lesbians, so that we can read more about actual lesbian sex and therefore accrue the same kind of gratuitous sexual knowledge heterosexuals have the opportunity to absorb every single goddamn day. This is all a very honorable thing we do here, on Autostraddle.

This week’s foray into Sapphic Sex is “The Single Bicoastal Lesbian Smoking Lots of Weed With Two Gal Pals!” This lady has a habit of naming objects (“The Purple Friend”) and people (“The 25-Year-Old Lovely”) and a habit of eating marijuana. It’s amazing because she talks about her feelings/exes approximately a million times more than other sex diarists!

Last summer I was feeling horny so I went on Craigslist and a woman posted a picture of her naked body and I responded. We e-mailed back and forth a few times. The next day we decided to meet and when I saw her she looked familiar. At one point I asked, “Have we dated before?” 

Is anyone else confused about what happened to the 25-year-old at the end when she was crying a lot? Also do people still act like that on facebook when they’re grown up? More importantly, why isn’t this woman on The Real L Word?

  1. Wow, that was terrible. The comments are killing me though.

    “This is a sex diary! If you’re really into someone TOSS their salad”

    I die.

  2. one time in what must be the same recurring thing this really rad queer girl from my therapy group had like a two page spread about her sex life that i stumbled across wholly by accident i swear (there were photos)

    maybe it was in Vice, i dunno. some new york thing

    i hope she doesn’t read this. that’s way a breach of you know, whatever

    • “You need to find a more aged piece of beef to stick your whole limbs in like that Gucci chick.”

      “A kaleidoscope of wackness cascading down a waterfall of bullshit into a sea of rancid trash lollipops.”

      I wish I could write like this. Le sigh.

  3. “a purple dildo and harness, because I didn’t want to have to commit to a lifelike one”

    Can someone explain this to me? How do you commit to a dildo? Is there a ceremony? Has it only recently been legalised in New York?

    • right? when i read that sentence i was like, ok 1. it’s so weird that you are 39 and you did that like a crazy-ass bitch, 2. it’s so weird that not only did you do that, but you told someone about it, 2a. that you told the entire internet about it

  4. I cried laughing… because of the comments. This woman is worse than the “cheated out of love” baby dykes who post vague/indirect posts for an entire week about how much they don’t give a shit about being dumped.

    And she isn’t even semi hot to be getting that much ass… seriously.
