Here's How To Make Lesbian Sex Safe(r)

Here's what you need to know (even if you didn't know you needed to know).

Popular lesbian vlogger Arielle Scarcella is back with a new video that tackles safe sex and the lesbian community.

For this video, Scarcella enlisted the help of Christine, an openly gay gynecology physician assistant. She felt that a video like this was necessary because of the narrow ― and heteronormative ― lens through which sex education tends to occur in American public school systems. 

“Growing up in school we are taught about safe sex, but only if you’re straight and cisgender,” Scarcella told The Huffington Post. “What about all the other genders, sexualities and sex acts besides penis-into-vagina? Lesbians ARE the least likely to contract STI’s etc, but does that mean we shouldn’t be safe and healthy?”
