What Do You Call a Lesbian with Long Fingers?

by Yessica Garcia Hernandez

The article “What Do You Call a Lesbian with Long Fingers? The Development of Lesbian and Dyke Pornography”, Heather Butler focuses on the evolution of Lesbian representation in pornography, with a focus on the authenticity and legitimacy of Lesbian sexuality. Throughout the article it is mentioned that fingers and dildos are substitutes for the male penis (Butler 168). Butler also includes the term “the butch”, which describes about the visible marker of Lesbianism, the term destabilizes gender norms pertaining to masculinity and femininity (168). Butler also focuses on the notion of the Dildo being a “pleasure-giver not a pleasure-seeker”, Dildos and Strap ons give more sexual agency to Lesbians than the males penis (183). The position Butler takes contributes to the film I will be working titled, “The Japanese Wife Next Door” by Director Yutaka Ikejima. In the film, during the Lesbian sex scene, a strap on is used. It becomes evident that there is sexual agency that Lesbians own, mainly because in the scene the focus is not on seeking pleasure, it is on giving pleasure. By Jazmin Legazpi
