I’m Scared of Vaginas So I Watched An Erotic Lesbian Documentary

A still from the lovemaking scene in “Brett and Melanie: Boi Meets Girl”


I’ve been scared of vaginas for as long as I can remember. Even when I didn’t know I was gay in my younger years, the snatch never served as a mysterious place of excitement. And then along came Brett and Melanie: Boi Meets Girl, a new documentary about a butch/femme lesbian couple that’s 52 minutes long–half on a couch as they discuss their relationship’s dynamic, and half in the bedroom, Hello Kitty vibrator and all.

Up until I watched Brett and Melanie, the longest I had ever looked at a vagina was when I did a Google search in high school to face my fear and almost puked all over my screen. I’ve never found the appeal of women’s nether regions and I’ve always said that being scared of vaginas is okay since I’m gay! It wasn’t a big deal that I didn’t find out until senior year in math class that the clitoris was outside of the vagina or that the actual vagina is only a small part of what is called the vagina (forgive me if I’m wrong about any and/or all of these statements, because I probably am).

I went about my life avoiding vagina and only catching small painful glimpses of kookas as ads for “Celeste’s Horny Cam Girls” popped up as I tried to watch gay porn.

While I wasn’t exactly thrilled about the prospect of seeing vaginas up close and personal on my screen, I was excited to hear about the two women’s personal lives and in and out of the bedroom. Their frank talk about meeting at a strip club and later again online, and the explanation of their top/bottom boi dynamic are just as engrossing as their lovemaking that feels intimate and sensual rather than overtly pornographic.

Melanie, the blonde femme is actually the “top daddy,” and Brett, the butch who fucks while wearing a strap on and wifebeater is the “bottom boi,” throwing an extra kink into the already surprising and nontraditional relationship.

Their on-screen revelations are refreshing, honest, and raw and aren’t a tragic tale about the problem of being gay that most LGBT film and literature harp on. Brett and Melanie shows a real lesbian love story that many of us have never had the opportunity to see.

Brett and Melanie: Boi Meets Girl is now available for purchase on DVD
