There’s no dearth of lesbian porn on the internet. But the vast majority of lesbian porn out there isn’t made by and for queer women. Lesbians deserve adult content that has their needs and desires in mind. That’s where lesbian erotica comes in.

As pulp literature became prevalent in the post-World War II era, mass-produced fictional paperbacks about lesbian eroticism hit the shelves in the U.S. While these stories weren’t necessarily lesbian erotica in the modern sense, they introduced the idea throughout the ’50s and ’60s that women could, in fact, sexually desire other women. As queer rights emerged and tangled with the feminist sex wars during the ’70s and ’80s, lesbian women began penning their own stories, this time by and for queer women. Lesbian erotica has since become much less taboo, and while it’s not quite mainstream yet, it isn’t as difficult to find in 2020.

With all that said, where should you look for lesbian erotica online? We’ve selected the top sites, eBooks, apps, and more for everything from the most mundane to the kinkiest.

Best free lesbian erotica: Nifty, Literotica, and r/GoneWildAudio

The internet is filled with tons of free ethical porn if you know where to find it. Literotica is by far the most well-known hub for all sorts of adult stories, and that includes plenty of lesbian erotica. A similar website, Nifty, hosts a dedicated section for lesbian sex stories, segmented into categories like bondage, science-fiction and fantasy, and “authoritarian” (or domination and submission).

For audio porn fans, there’s r/GoneWildAudio. This sub features everything from hobbyists and professional voice actors across Reddit performing lewd audio scripts or recording themselves fantasizing about a particularly naughty hookup. Check out the [F4F], [F4TF], [TF4F], and [TF4TF] tags for the subreddit’s lesbian smut pairings.

Be warned, all three sites aren’t quite as heavily curated as a paid lesbian erotica collection. Literotica’s stories range in quality, some r/GondWildAudio users play with hard kinks like fictional incest fantasies, and Nifty is notorious for its lax rules on erotica with underage characters. So do a little research on the stories you find and make sure you read any warnings.

Best lesbian erotica book: Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Vol. 4

Cleis Press’ Best Lesbian Erotica series is over two decades old now, and yet every new release finds another way to innovate the lesbian erotica genre. The latest iteration, Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 4, is edited by erotica titan Sinclair Sexsmith, and its quality shows. This collection features everything from kinky leather play to femme group sex to gorgeous, affirming trans lesbian desire. It’s as hot as it is diverse, and readers can pick up the series in eBook form or print for just $16.95.

Best lesbian sex stories: Autostraddle’s Slick

Queer news site Autostraddle has a treat for lesbian erotica fans, and it’s called Slick. Every Thursday, Autostraddle will share an “X-rated” erotica story for its readers, who are predominantly “queer and quarantined as fuck.” Autostraddle works with a pretty open-ended definition of erotica, deferring to the writers themselves to come up with the content. Anything goes—from true-to-life confessions to fictional erotica—as long as it’s hot as hell.

“Sometimes it will be about kinky daddies who spank hard, other times a deeply intimate and occasionally awkward masturbation journey,” the Autostraddle editorial team teases. “There will be one-off pieces, and also longer series with characters you can get attached to. The name of the game is variety. To keep you at the edge—of your seat, or otherwise.”

Sign up for Autostraddle’s A+ program to get started reading the Slick backlog.

Lesbian erotic stories for audiophiles: Dipsea

Dipsea is sort of like a professional version of Literotica and r/GoneWildAudio combined into one fun little app. The site offers an assortment of realistic stories written, edited, and performed by professional creators. The end result is lifelike stories of queer one-night-stands, friends-to-lover hookups, lesbian BDSM, and plenty of sapphic yearning that might as well be confessional rather than fictional.

Subscriptions come in two packages, either an $8.99 monthly deal or access for $47.99 per year. For a few sample recordings, head on over to the Dipsea website.

Best erotic lesbian porn: XConfessions

Erika Lust’s adult films need no introduction, and that’s doubly true of her XConfessions series. XConfessions is an erotic film collection where Lust adapts viewer-submitted confessions and performs them with adult creators. Like Lust’s other adult work, the entire series has a realistic and cinematic flair to it, which, combined with the real-life encounters behind the camera, makes it a thrilling tale. For lesbian erotica fans who prefer their smutty storytelling in live-action format, the site has a sizable lesbian category featuring everything from bathroom hookups to queer pet play. A subscription starts at $11.95 per month, paid annually.
