Lesbianism

Can we leave this topic and get on to the other aspect of “artificial sex”? I refer to the topics of homosexuality and Lesbianism. These may not be the most attractive subjects to discuss either, but I feel it’s essential for our readers to have a t least a passing knowledge of them, for both are rampant in the world today.

I agree it’s better to be armed with some knowledge about topics such as these. Sooner or later most of our readers will come across these facets of life in one form or another.

This takes place when two females are sexually attracted to one another. It may occur in a variety of age brackets, and often marital state is not necessarily a bar. Some females simply do not enjoy male company. They find members of their own sex far more pleasant to deal with, and they enjoy an erotic relationship with them.

So what these amendments have done is give same sex couples the same legal rights as de facto and married heterosexual couples in many instances where they were formerly excluded.
