How ‘Blue Is the Warmest Color’ stacks up against real lesbian sex
“If you end up resting in someone’s [expletive], it’s not a successful encounter.”
Blue Is the Warmest Color, a French film based on the graphic novel of the same name, was just released in U.S. theaters. While reviews of the film have been mixed, the most controversial talking point seems to be the authenticity of the seven-minute sex scene between main characters Emma and Adèle.
The novel’s author, Julie Maroh, has gone on record expressing her displeasure with male director Abdellatif Kechiche’s portrayal of lesbian sex, claiming he made it more pornographic than artistic.
Yeni Sleidi interviewed real-life lesbians for queer website Posture to gauge just how realistic the scene is, and the responses are fantastic. One woman laments, “If you end up resting in someone’s asshole, it’s not a successful encounter.”
One viewer claimed it was “really geometric.” Another said she thought it was hot at the beginning, but when they started changing positions every 10 seconds, it started to feel like an “infomercial for a kitchen product.”
Other reactions: Scissoring has never happened ever; in lesbian sex, there’s a lot more crying; this is obviously two straight women having sex for pay.
When asked if she would try any of the moves in the scene, one woman said, “I have my own cookbook, thank you.”
