Tumblr! Y’all know this book exists, right? I am pretty sure it’s new to me, having just seen it in the window of a bookstore with a women’s history month display. Ella Maillart was Annemarie Schwarzenbach’s road trip buddy and she too wrote about it, and apparently somebody republished it last year.

BTW I totally bought this. Gonna try to read it soon.

This is of interest to me!

Not Natalie-related, but they did just introduce a bisexual couple; the lady-half is played by Indira Varma, who has had more than one sex scene with other women already in just three episodes of the new season. Which I have enjoyed HEARTILY.

Ahahahaha I BET YOU HAVE. In exchange for your reply please accept an image of Varma herself, expressing my feelings about this delightful news.

Stand by for my femslash Cersei/Brienne fic! Coming to a computer screen near you! In, er… several months, probably. :)

I and no doubt many of my followers are rooting for you in this endeavor!

against-stars replied to your post: “pasiphile answered your question:Two unrelated items not in the…”:
to my knowledge 100% of any lady/lady action is either for the sake of “teaching to do sex right for husband’s benefit” or like… “well, i’m bored/curious and there’s someone present” 8(

Yeah. I mean, I guess that’s still a greater-than-average level of acknowledgement. And tbh I’d be surprised to find nuanced, emotionally weighted, non-fetishized lady/lady action written by a straight dude. Pleasantly surprised. But surprised.

Exxxxcellent, excellent. I like that character’s face as well. And I also enjoy how she seems to be drinking wine in like half the gifsets I’ve seen.

(Thanks, friend!)

not in the books, iirc. It’s very heavily implied in the series (beyond usual subtexty levels) but not actual canon-canon
against-stars answered your post: “Two unrelated items”:
in the SHOW, she’s had at least a line or two indicating that she’s at least aware that women can dig women &seems a little flirty sometimes. idk about the books because her character is pretty different in them (less sincere) but either way lol it’s really mostly wishful thinking :(
Ahahahahaha these were the fastest pair of answers I have ever received on a question on Tumblr. LADY-LOVIN’ ANSWER SQUAD: ENGAGE. :-D
nichellen answered your post: “Two unrelated items”:
Not up to date on the show yet — but I could tell you who does get lady on lady action in the books if you like? :-D
I mean, out of curiosity, sure! Tbh it’s pretty unlikely I’ll ever read the books or watch the show… but hey, always good to know the locations of lady-on-lady action, amirite?

Two unrelated items

1. I’m really enjoying that Administrative Professionals Day, or whatever it’s called, coincides with Shakespeare’s observed birthday this year. Like. What else am I gonna do with my fancy English degree?*

2. My personal odds are honestly almost exactly 50/50 on this, having never watched the show nor read the books: does Natalie Dormer’s character on Game of Thrones canonically dig on ladies? Or is Tumblr just up to its usual fun & games?

During the second world war in one of the palaces of Tsarskoye Selo, a group of Soviet soldiers found a room decorated in a frank erotic style. According to witnesses , one of the walls was entirely hung with wooden phalluses of various shapes, a range of chairs, desks, and screens all decorated with pornographic images supplementing the whole appearance. Soldiers didn’t loot anything or destroy anything there, on the contrary, they made a dozen of documentary photos.

Most of the pictures were lost in the fire of war, but some of Hermitage personnel also confirm the existence of the parlour, noting that Catherine the Great even made a bodouir for Platon Zubov, but it’s unlikely that it could reached the 20th century. It is also known that the collection of erotic art belonged to the Romanov family was catalogued in 1930s . The evidences indicate that the objects were only shown to a selection of visitors. But the catalogue was lost. Like the whole entire collection, it was allegedly destroyed in 1950. However this small selection of photographs still exist:
