Curious Obsessions

Curious Obsessions | Sex History | Scoop.it

When an old 16mm film projector shows up at their doorstep, roommates Beth and Jackie aren't quite sure what to make of its mysterious appearance. The young women quickly discover that the whirling machine is haunted: it turns on at will and projects non-stop footage of ultra-erotic stag loops from the 1960s and 70s. Soon Beth and Jackie become sexually possessed by the flickering images, which have an aphrodisiac effect upon the luscious and suddenly very curious pair.

The Erotics of Invisibility | Sex History | Scoop.it

This is paper I wrote on lesbian visibility and eroticism for a class on Renaissance literature and history in 2011. It is very dense– but perhaps still enjoyable.

 

...What I argue is that this invisibility of female homosexuality is not merely a result of the historical distance from the period, but rather a consciously acknowledged component of the understanding of female same-sex erotic desire at the time. In “Sappho to Philaenis,” the secrecy and immaculateness of the title characters’ sexual activity operates as one of Donne’s central arguments for the superiority of a female-female sexual relationship.

It's not really lesbian when they're being paid to pose. How many women became lesbians for hire?

The Celluloid Closet

The Celluloid Closet | Sex History | Scoop.it
The Celluloid Closet is a documentary film directed and written by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. The film is based on the 1981 (revised 1987) book of the same name written by Vito Russo, and on previous lecture and film clip presentations given in person by Russo 1972-82. Russo researched the history of how motion pictures, especially Hollywood films, had portrayed gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender characters. It was given a limited release in select theaters, including the Castro Theater in San Francisco in April 1996, and then shown on cable channel HBO.
