Main outcome measures: Self reported sexual history and sexual practice with both male and female partners. First sexual experience tended to be with a man median 18 years old , with first sexual experience with a woman a few years later median 21 years. Oral sex, vaginal penetration with fingers, and mutual masturbation were the most commonly reported sexual practices between women. Vaginal penetration with penis or fingers and mutual masturbation were the most commonly reported sexual activities with men. Conclusions: These data from the largest UK survey of sexual behaviour between women to date demonstrate that lesbians and bisexual women may have varied sexual histories with both male and female partners.

Women’s Sexual Orientation and Sexual Behavior: How Well Do They Match? - Contexts

Lesbian sexual practices are sexual activities involving women who have sex with women , regardless of their sexual orientation.

The term may also be applied to a heterosexual or asexual woman who is unsure of or is exploring her sexuality. Romantic or sexual interpersonal relationships are often subject to sexual desire and arousal , which then leads to sexual activity for sexual release. A physical expression of intimacy between women depends on the context of the relationship along with social, cultural and other influences. Commonly, women engage in displays of affection, such as kissing on the cheek or hugging. A kiss on the lips, a prolonged kiss or hug, or other forms of touching, may or may not be regarded as sexual.
