Much ado has been made about Cosmo’s new listicle of 28 lesbian sex positions to try NOW. Skimming through the legendary lady mags foray into making pictures of illustrated girls doing gay looking sex actions above the perky yet explicit descriptions we’ve come to expect from Cosmo, I was neither offended nor titillated.
I feel no need to wax poetic on how Cosmo STILL DOESN’T UNDERSTAND ME or start scissoring madly while festooned in floral garlands because the big bad lady mag told me so. Frankly I’m amused and entertained by the sincere, if hetero-peppy, shot at reppin’ my kind.
In that spirit of good natured mockery, I clarified and decorated the 15 best and worst of Cosmo’s lesbian sex tips.

Ladies and ladies, welcome to our third annual Ultimate Femslash Madness Tournament, the place where you can vote (and vote and vote) to crown your favorite non-canon couples as champions of the internet! If there’s one thing we know here at AfterEllen it’s that some of the very best potential pairings never get to do more than stare longingly into each other’s eyes because TV executives are still bamboozled by the fact that lesbians exist. But forget those guys! Today is your day!
Or, well, this month is your month.
From now until July 18th you can nominate your OTP by commenting on this post or hitting us up on Tumblr or Twitter with the hashtag #FemslashOTP. Nominations can include movies, books, comic books, and TV shows; and can consist of same-show or cross-show pairings; and can include a lesbian or bisexual character as long as the couple you nominate isn’t canon in that fictional universe. So, for example, you can nominate Spencer Hastings and Quinn Fabray, or Spencer Hastings and Aria Montgomery, or Spencer Hastings and Emily Fields. (You cannot, however, nominate Spencer Hastings and yourself, even though I know that’s what you really want to do.)
The first round of voting will kick off on July 21st!
Who do you think we should include in this year’s tournament?
The CW will air the Canadian sitcom Seed beginning tonight at 9:30 p.m. and here’s why you care: There are two gorgeous lesbian moms. Amanda Brugel is Michelle Krosnoff and Stephanie Anne Mills is her partner Zoey Jones. Together they have a 9-year-old son named Billy who they conceived through a sperm donor. That sperm donor, Harry (Adam Korson), is “a likable bachelor and bartender, eager to reap the benefits of fatherhood, without having any of the responsibility.”
We talk with the stars and creators of “Life Partners,” “Chasing Life,” “Crazy Bitches” and more.
