Information about tribbing and tribadism with tribbing positions, tribbing techniques other names and the origins of tribbing with tribbing tips:

What Is Tribbing

Tribbing is a sexual act performed by two females where they rub and grind their external genitals together. By stimulating each others clitorises, vaginas and vulvae areas together they can reach orgasm.

Other Names For Tribbing

Tribbing is also known as tribadism which is usually the more formal name. A slang name for tribbing is scissoring because the two ladies look like a pair of scissors and perform the cutting action whilst tribbing. Lesbian pop groups and lesbian bands may have used this slang scissoring to form their band names. Scissor Sisters and Scissorfight for example.

Other slang names for tribbing relate to the vulgar names for two vaginas rubbing so include sexual rubbing, slapping clams, train spotting, clam jousting, polishing mirrors (mostly used in China), bumping fur, gash mashing, clit clatting, ditch twitching, making tortillas, rug rubbing, happy slapping, prawn wrestling, donut bumping and French connection.

In Brazil they use the word velcro to signify tribbing.

The more politer name for tribbing is female-to-female genital sex. In heterosexual sex a similar act is frottage whilst homosexuals would perform the act of frot.

The Origins of the Word Tribbing

An old word for lesbian or lesbianism was tribade which came from the French word tribade. The Latin word Tribas comes from the Greek word Tribein which meant To Rub. So for many years a homosexual woman was described as a tribade before the modern word lesbian was used. Two women rubbing off vulva against vulva for mutual pleasure were said to be performing the act of tribbing or to trib.

Tribbing Techniques

Before we discuss the various positions lesbians can perform tribbing together it is worth spending some time looking at tribbing techniques. The first tribbing technique is to get each other wet and engorged by kissing, massaging, caressing, fingering or through oral sex. Women should finger each others clits and vaginas to arouse each other.

Tribbing works best when the women are turned on and highly aroused sexually. This will engorge their vulva and surrounding sexual organs because of the increase in blood flow to the stimulated areas. Then as the lesbians perform tribbing they will be able to reach each other better and can simulate sexual intercourse by rubbing, grinding, humping or bumping their clits and vaginas together.

Tribbing Positions

There are several positions for lesbian tribbing:

Missionary Tribbing

One woman lies on top of the other woman and together they simulate heterosexual sex movements so that each clitoris is rubbed and sexually aroused.

Face To Face Tribbing

The two women should face each other whilst sitting and intertwine their legs so their vulvae areas make contact. By leaning back they can rub clits against each other and reach each other vaginas. Arms are free to support each other, cuddle, kiss and caress breasts, nipples and other sensitive parts of the body. One partner can lie down on her back to give the feeling of submission and dominance, leaving one lesbian partner in control and the other being dominated.

Why Lesbians Perform Tribbing

There are many intimate sex acts and foreplay acts that lesbians can perform on each other like kissing, sucking or biting breasts and nipples, performing oral sex on a clitoris and vagina (cunnilingus) or using vibrators, dildos or strap on cocks to simulate penis penetrative sex. In addition the sex act of tribbing means that lesbians can feel another persons body on them and grind and bump like male to female heterosexual sex. Lesbian tribbing can lead to orgasm and may even lead to both lesbians orgasming simultaneously. It is an intimate act that can deepen the love for each other in a committed lesbian relationship or lead to deeper sexual satisfaction in a long term or short term lesbian relationship.

Tribbing Tips

Some lesbians like to shave around their genitals so that they and their partners public hair does not pull or get caught between their legs. A shaven pussy is nicer to go down on and saves getting pubic hair caught in teeth or left in the mouth. Other ladies like to have neatly trimmed pussies. Shaved or trimmed pussies are much more sensitive to sexual arousal.

Tribbing is more about clitoral stimulation and after a clitoral orgasm a lesbian may still like to be penetrated. In the absence of a male with a ready penis why not have more fun with strap on dildos or vibrators like the rampant rabbit which will further stimulate the clit and vagina, though some women will find more clit stimulation too much and would prefer a vibrator to just stimulate her vagina and G-spot.

Tribbing is a great way for lesbians to enjoy each other and provides a feeling of intimacy that can lead to orgasm.
