Lesbian Dictionary: Italian

How to say lesbian in Italian

Italian is a language of Indo-European family formed by several dialects. It is spoken by about 62 million people and is official in 9 countries or regions. In the Italian lesbian dictionary placed at your disposal, there are current expressions, but also expressions that are no longer used, but all provide information about the life lesbians have led in Italy. In this sense seem significant "Casalesbica" and "Gol-Star lesbian". We also want to emphasize the coincidence of themes and expressions with other lesbian dictionaries as the expression "Camionista" as well as a relative lack of imagination by the small number of euphemisms, although we love "Vespa".

Term Definition

lesbian, relative to rubbing the vulva of a woman with the vulva of another woman. Derived from Latin Tribas Tribadis , which in turn derives from the Greek tribein (rub). The term probably appeared in France during the Renaissance, with the translation of classical authors as Luciano, Marziale and Phaedrus, in which texts Tribades were condemned. Tribadism today is synonymous with physical love between two women, but satisfied in any way.
