What is a lip-stick lesbienne?

I'm sure on some level, most people can figure it out. But here's why I chose the title of this blog the way I did...

I'll break it into two parts to maybe make it easier; first part: lip-stick lesbian. For those unfamiliar, an lsl (should that be capital LSL?) is the kind of lesbian you see in porn (yes, I've seen porn) - adorned with lip-stick of many skanky (and maybe sometimes not-so-skanky) colors, often blonde, often with fake boobs (but that applies to straight girls in straight porn, too, I guess). I think the only real requirement is that they're willing to do it with other girls on camera. I think of myself as sort of a "real life" lip-stick lesbian, because I like girls, and I (::trying to be modest... and failing::) am as hot as those girls.

Second part: lesbienne. I came up with that for 3 reasons:
1. It's a reference to the Washingtonienne. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
2. I'm kind of bi, so I'm not really like a real lesbian. (But then I suppose lsl's take a lot of dick during their porn careers, so I could probably just be a plain old lip-stick lesbian... Don't forget the last reason, though!)
3. It sounds cool.

The heroine of my novel was in a similar situation in the 70s: figuring out what she was, since she was married, but liked sex with women. Bisexual was considered a cop-out then, and so she just makes it all up as she goes along.

I always thought a lipstick lesbian is a lesbian who prefers to look feminine, and sexy in that way, as opposed to the sort of lesbian who prefers to dress down or dress masculine, and adopt other boyish/mannish ways.

To say that LSLs want to look like porn stars seems over the top, because, let's be honest, porn stars seldom look really GOOD. By that I mean that the vast majority of porn stars invariably look and sound like very stupid people. Are you saying that LSLs really want that vacuous pouty look? That would surprise me!

johnson's right. A lipstick lesbian is a feminine lesbian, who typically wears makeup, such as myself. The women in the porn movies pretending to be lesbians? They're bisexual and/or actresses and rarely even a little bit attractive. Typically they look like plastic dolls, not real women. Gross.
