That was interesting, thank you for sharing. this community is diverse, and i like to see more pov's beyond the standard hetero/bi women oogling 2 guys.

And, ultimately, I write slash because I'm a lesbian and I like turning women on.

I never thought of that before, but it makes sense. I wonder however, how this works for lesbians in a relationship (like if a poll was done, how many would be ok with their partner doing that, how many do it together, how many would feel like its a form of cheating etc)

That's an interesting question! Although I am single now, I will say that in the time I've been writing slash I've mostly been coupled, with lovers who ranged from enthusiastic to indifferent.

I do think that some women (both lesbians and others) view consumption of erotic material as cheating, and I would guess the same ones would have negative feeling about production of erotic material, as well. I have a hard time relating to that idea. To me, cheating on a monogamous relationship is having sex with someone else - it's not masturbation, it's not fantasy, it's not talking about sex, it's not writing about sex, it's not reading about sex, it's not getting turned on by written material or writing material that turns people on. But maybe I'm too literal minded :-).

I'll second this. I'm pansexual, but my life partner is lez and she writes and consumes slash erotica. It doesn't bother me in the least -- hell, I like the idea that when I'm writing a sensual scene, it's working effectively, so I couldn't imagine complaining that she does, as well. ^^
