Lesbians Less Likely To Get Tested For Cervical Cancer Than Straight Or Bisexual Women

According to a new report by academics at Rice University, Lesbians are less likely to get tested for cervical cancer than straight or bisexual counterparts

The report examined the relationship between sexual orientation and pap smears in 15 states from 2000 and 2010.

It found that gay women were 25% less likely to get tested at regular intervals than their straight or bisexual counterparts.

Mammograms, which test for breast cancer, were found to be around the same rate for gay, bisexual and straight women.

Researchers examined what they described as “timely” tests.

This involved monitoring whether women over 40 had a mammogram every two years and 25 to 65-year-olds took a pap smear every three years.

Alexa Solazzo, the study’s lead author, said it was possible the difference could be down to birth control.

Women who use contraceptives are often required by doctors to have annual pap smears.

Many doctors require women who seek a birth-control prescription to have had a recent pap test. Women who don’t have sex with men might theoretically have less of a need for birth control than women who do have sex with men (i.e., heterosexual or bisexual women). Thus, they may be less likely to seek care at an OB-GYN and receive a pap test.”

Solazzo said she hopes that this research will encourage more studies on sexual-minority health disparities and contribute to a change in preventive health communication regarding the promotion of pap smears, emphasizing the importance of having these exams regardless of sexuality.

A straightforward change to the public health message women receive that focuses less on sexual activity and more on the long-term health benefits of pap-smear testing may improve health overall and help reduce differences by sexual orientation.”

Another Study Concludes Straight Women Prefer Watching Lesbian Porn (Well Dah)

Another day, and another study into the porn preferences of straight women.

So what can we conclude from this latest study; well heterosexual women overwhelmingly prefer lesbian porn over straight porn.

The study conducted by PornHub and Buzzfeed found women are 132% more likely to watch lesbian porn than men.

The study follows a similar research Pornhub and Buzzfeed carried out in 2014 which has similar results.

Gender and pop culture expert, Dr Lauren Rosewarne, explained the reason this is such a common occurrence is because straight porn is often more aligned with men’s fantasies than women’s.

She said that a penis poking in and out of a vagina often isn’t “that great of a look,” and although straight women might appreciate the role of the penis in practice, they do not “necessarily find its deployment in action titillating – particularly since penises are very rarely named as the sexiest part of a man.”

In contrast, the sole focus of lesbian porn is what women find pleasurable – gay or straight.

Sex therapist Megan Flemming added;

In lesbian porn, there is really a focus on oral and clitoral stimulation as the main events. And since this is typically what gets most women off anyway, it’s no wonder this is what you like to see on the screen.”

And the second most popular porn category amongst ladies – male gay porn.

Dr Rosewarne suggests this is because gay porn does what straight porn never does – it sexualises the male body.

More Work To Be Done: Study Finds Queer Women Are Less Likely To Get A Job Than Straight Women

A new study, published this year by a New York University found that queer women were less likely to get a job interview than straight women.

The author of the study, Emma Mishel, created two fictitious CVs, which detailed different but similar qualifications for two different women.

The two women were assigned common white names, as to not conflate other forms of discrimination.

They also shared the following qualifications: College graduates (from Cornell and Columbia), a few years of relevant work experience, study abroad experience, and high grade point averages. The only difference in the resumes was that one had a secretarial position at her university’s LGBTQ organisation, while the other had no such experience or any affiliation with an LGBTQ organisation or cause.

For her study, Mishel sent out more than 1,600 CVs over a three-month period to administrative positions in New York, Virginia, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C.

These regions were chosen carefully because they accurately represent the diverse makeup of the United States.

The result for this research was shocking pretty shocking. There was a clear biased, and out of the 775 CVs sent out on behalf of each fictitious woman, the straight applicant got 130 call-backs, while the queer applicant got 94 call-backs — that’s a 5% difference.

What was probably more shocking was were the places perceived to be “Gay Friendly” didn’t actually seem that way at all. In Washington, D.C. and New York, both considered inclusive and queer-friendly spaces, showed the same biased.

One myth this study debunked effectively is that the existence of LGBTQ legislation in a state doesn’t necessarily mean discrimination doesn’t exist in important spaces.

Mishel’s study isn’t the first to examine LGBTQ discrimination in the job application process; in 2010, John Bailey did a resumé audit where he tried to find if gay men and lesbian women were discriminated against disproportionately when applying to jobs.

His results were surprisingly different than Mishel’s, however: His study found no discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation. But Mishel notes in her discussion of experiment design that Baily’s results might have something to do with his selection of test cities — he used Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, and San Francisco, all areas with thriving queer populations and generally areas that politically align with the left.

Overall these studies shows us the importance of incorporating and encouraging equality and diversity in all aspects of life.

Granting us the right to marry does not mean its ok to make cuts in other areas such as employment, especially when employment creates stability and livelihood. We have to do better.

Lesbians Really Do Earn More Than Straight Women (But That’s Not Really A Good Thing)

In the world of work there lays a clear biased – women earn less than men. Caucasian folk earn more than ethnic groups. And gay men, and transgender people make less than their heteronormative friends.

Yet there’s one minority group that flies in the face of conventional wisdom with a positive wage gap: lesbians.

Lesbians in Western countries suffer many types of discrimination, but being underpaid is not one of them.

Why? Well a new study by the University of Melbourne and San Diego State University found gay women earn more because they are better at “leaning in.”

Nick Drydakis, co-author of the study and senior lecturer in economics at the University of Anglia, also suggests this is because lesbians often know early in life that they will not marry into a traditional household where a male could provide for them. So they invest more in themselves, study longer than heterosexual women and make more career-oriented decisions.

Good for them, right? Not necessarily. While the lesbian pay premium is certainly good news for us hardworking women, it may also be due to the systematic discrimination against other groups.

Mothers, for example, earn less than childless women. And lesbians have fewer children than heterosexual married women.

Drydakis says

This might make employers more interested in promoting lesbians, who are less likely to move in and out of the labour market.”

He also suggests that employers, colleagues and consumers often favour personality traits traditionally associated with men — like ambition, authority and pragmatism.

[interaction id=”560c2d3377aa6c1a034e607b”]


Lesbians might also benefit if they exhibit more of those attributes than their heterosexual counterparts or gay male co-workers.

Research however did find that the wage premium was lower for those lesbians who had previously been in heterosexual marriages.

Jeffrey Waddoups, who conducted this particular study and is the graduate coordinator for economics at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, explained

This is because the typical household division of labour for married couples focuses on career advancement of men.”

To be sure, we still face other types of discrimination in and out of the workplace.

And research indicates the marketplace continues to benefit primarily men or women who are perceived as being more “manly.”

So the key is to be assertive, stay longer in school and select a lifelong partner who understands career advancement is not a male privilege.

Lesbian Bush Confidence VS. Cockiness

Maybe it’s just me, but I think that women look better with a nice confident trimmed bush. Whatever the type you have it’s beautiful in all the different textures and colours.

Changing it up with different shapes can be fun (and a fun surprise for your partner) but don’t just assume that every lady prefers hard wood floors to soft cosy carpeting.

Lessons Every Straight Girl Could Learn from a Lesbian

It’s a scientific fact that lesbian women achieve  more frequently than straight women, so there must be a lot straight women can learn from lesbians – right?

Pornhub Reveals The Top Searches Made By Women and it Would Appear Lesbians Top The List

Oh how we love it when PornHub releases these fact. Apparently, women love lesbian and gay porn as opposed to straight porn.


According to the site women and men clearly have a different taste in porn. Men are most interested in seeing ‘teens’ (*shudders*) do the dance with no pants whereas women are more intrigued in seeing women with other women or man on man.

Pornhub officials stated:

We’ve since collected some new, specified data which breaks down the Pornhub viewership proportions by gender in our top 20 countries. Topping off this list is Brazil, which has an impressive 29% female viewership base, a solid 6% above the 23% world average.

Apparently, the phrase ‘eating p*ssy’ is 900% more likely to be searched by a woman than a man – wow!



New Australian Report Finds Lesbians Earn up to 33% More than Heterosexual Women

A new study from Australia has identified a big differences in the average earning power of gay men and lesbians when compared to their heterosexual counterparts.

The study concluded that lesbians earn – on average – 33% more than heterosexual women. However, gay men face negative discrimination from employers when it comes to their pay.

Although, at first, such statistics may be surprising, the study mirrors similar research published last year, which concluded that lesbians earn 20% more than their heterosexual counterparts.

So why the difference? Professor Mark Wooden of the University of Melbourne’s  – who co-authored the report – said it was due LGB women working more hours. In fact an average 20% more than straight women.

The research concluded that straight women were more likely to take time off work or be employed part-time because of parenting duties.

However, the same study found that gay men were found to earn about 20 per cent less than heterosexual men due to a lower rate of earnings’ growth – and this was worse if they lived with a partner and were more open about their sexuality.

We found that the wages of gay men are growing at a much slower rate than the wages of heterosexual males. Gay males who are most likely to be observably gay by employers – those who live with a same-sex partner – face larger earnings penalties than those who are discreet about their sexuality.”

Professor Mark Wooden

The report – Sexual Identity, Earnings, and Labour Market Dynamics: New Evidence from Longitudinal Data in Australia – concluded:

Gay men are 16 per cent less likely to be employed and are substantially more likely to have several periods of joblessness than heterosexual men.”

Dr Catriona Wallace has recently launched Ventura, a Sydney-based space for businesses start-ups run by women which places an emphasis on diversity and inclusion. Commenting on the study, she told Gay Star Business that she was aware of LGBT entrepreneurs having trouble when it came to raising investment.

Although I cannot comment directly on pay disparity between gay and lesbian people in Australia – despite being a reasonably tolerant society, my observations are that it is still difficult for gay, lesbian or transgender led businesses to reach a representative number in the start-up community.

Given the traditional investment community is mostly male, this may mean that being a gay man pitching for capital may be more difficult. That being said, it’s very difficult period for women, straight or lesbian, and minority groups to raise capital in Australia. This is something we want to work on.”

In December, a similar study commissioned by the World Bank and IZA World of Labor, found that gay women get 15% more in Canada, 11% in Germany and 8% more in the UK. Gay men can expect 12%, 9% and 5% less in those respective countries.

Lesbians may be willing to make a series of career-oriented decisions, such as staying in school longer, choosing a degree that is likely to lead to a higher paying job, and working longer hours,’ and they ‘tend to self-select into male-dominated occupations that may offer higher salaries.

[On the other hand, gay men in the workplace] may upset conventional assumptions about gender, and so their contributions to the firm and their leadership abilities may not be properly evaluated and they can be overlooked for promotions.’

Dr Nick Drydakis

Lesbians Are Less Concerned About What Their Partners Wear Than Straight Women

According to a survey by British retailer Littlewoods, lesbians are less concerned about what their partners wear than straight women.

The survey showed 16% of women look to change their new girlfriend’s wardrobe – compared with almost 20% of women with a new boyfriend.

Around 28% straight women with a husband or long-term boyfriend confessed to making changes to his look.

However, only 16% of lesbians and bisexual women with a wife or long-term girlfriend made changes, and from this 25 to 34-year-olds were the biggest fashion gurus in a relationship and most likely to choose what their wife or girlfriend wore.

For those who do change their own style to please their partner, two thirds said they do it because they want their lover to find them as attractive as possible.

So the big questions are – would you change your style for your partner, new or old? Or would you expect them to make changes if you weren’t happy?
