“Lesbians are good for headlines!” says promoters of lesbian TV drama

July 11th, 2012

The notion that ‘sex sells’ has long since passed from truism to cliché, the cliché is never more true than when you can throw in the opportunity to show photographs of famous, attractive women. Which goes a long way to explaining this, from the ever-reliably-lecherous Sun:

Most women fancy a snog with Cheryl

ONE in two straight women has snogged a girl friend — and Cheryl Cole is the celeb most would share a gay kiss with.

A survey of 2,000 women found that half have thought nothing of paying a pal some lip service.

Of those, 40 per cent said they were drunk at the time, while a quarter claimed they were just curious to know what tickling tonsils with a girl was like.

Not to mention this three-for-one from the equally-lecherous Daily Mail:

Cheryl Cole, Angelina Jolie and Duchess Kate voted top female celebrities straight women would choose for lesbian clinch

Cheryl Cole is the starlet women would most like to have a lesbian fling with, according to findings. 

Fellow brunettes Angelina Jolie and the Duchess of Cambridge were also rated highly during a study exploring female sexuality.

More than half of heterosexual girls questioned (51 per cent) admitted to passionately kissing another woman on the lips, with 37 per cent saying they were drunk at the time.

Very little about the story is worth passing comment on, but it is however worth pointing out that this ‘study on female sexuality’ was in fact a standard PR opinion poll commissioned to publicise the release of BBC’s lesbian-centric drama Lip Service.
