Transcript 111 though The Hite Report devotes only 21 pages specifically to lesbianism, the entire book is an affirmation of the validity of lesbianism as a lifestyle for women. Of the 3,000 women who responded to the questionnaires in Shere Hite's nationwide study of female sexuality, only 30% have orgasms regularly from intercourse. And the way most of these women do orgasm had more to do with methods invented to achieve greater clitoral stimulation than it has to do with intercourse itself. The women graphically describe how they have, enjoy, and need regular physical clitoral orgasms—something not readily available to them (without guilt feelings) unless they are in a lesbian relationship or "do it themselves". The majority of the women said that sex meant a great deal to them. But their actual comments reveal that it isn't so much the sex as it is the intimate physical contact with another person. Women like to touch, hold, kiss, feel loved, and often the men in their lives only demonstrate that physical closeness and affection through sexual contact. Eight percent (144) of the women in this study said they had sex with women, and another nine percent stated they had interest in having sex with another woman. One of the most striking points about the answers received to the questionnaires was how frequently, even though it was not specifically asked, women brought up the fact that they might be interested in having sexual relations with another woman. A comparison of the comments dealing with intercourse and lesbianism is an obvious study in contrasts. In heterosexual sex, many of the women complained about the standard pattern of a few kisses, brief breast and/or vaginal stimulation, penetration, pumping, ejaculation, and end of sex "because he rolls off and goes to sleep." Conversely, the comments by lesbians reveal a great deal of talking, touching, holding and kissing, total body caressing, mutual clitoral stimulation—a loving body exploration which may continue for hours. The Hite Report contends that between lesbians there generally are more feelings, tenderness, affection, sensitivity, and orgasms than are exhibited in heterosexual relations. Shere Hite states that it is important for women to recognize their potential for having sexual feelings for other women. "If we want to grow strong, we must learn to love, respect, honor, and be attentive to and interested in other women. This includes seeing each other as physically attractive with the possibility of sexual intimacy." -Phyllis Yarnold 8 Pointblank Times
