Lesbin derives from Lespin, a term from the old French meaning prostitute, and of which we have not found a clear relationship with the term Lesbienne (lesbian), although it is not ruled out since lesbian sex has often been related to prostitutes, as we explained in the terms Gousse and Gouine from our French Lesbian Dictionary. It should also be noted that in many languages the insults and slang terms used against prostitutes end up being used against homosexual men, as in the case of the word Gay.
Its use to point out effeminate men or with homosexual behavior can be traced back to the middle of the 17th century. From it two words would derive, the collegiate Lapin of the 19th century and the Lesbien that we find in some texts of the 19th century.
