Scissors. An expression used in Argentina to name homosexual women, in relation to the sexual act consisting of rubbing the vulva and clitoris with the genitals of the couple or with the thigh.

In other places like Spain, is used the idiom “hacer la tijera” (do scissors) to refer to lesbian sex, which may be accompanied or not with an illustrative gesture crossing 2 fingers of both hands as if they were legs.
