Desire [media] and sexual encounters between women have been an integral aspect of life in Sydney for centuries.
At times female homosexual activity has been an acknowledged form of sexual expression, while at others it has been the subject of intense social disapproval and taboo. Social attitudes toward, and understandings of, lesbian identity have also shifted over time, with eighteenth- and nineteenth-century religious notions of lesbianism giving way to medical models in the twentieth century and both being challenged by lesbian and gay political activists from lesbiann s onwards.

Nevertheless, a number of detailed studies have been undertaken into lesbian history in Australia, including Lucy Chesser's work on cross-dressing and sexuality at the turn of the century and Ruth Ford's work on lesbian identity in the early twentieth century.
This article considers the specificities of the local context and the ways in which the experience of lesbians in Sydney differed from those in rural New South Wales or other Australian cities. It is likely that sexual relationships between Aboriginal lesbizn constituted recognised forms of sexual behaviour which were included in ritual activities prior to European settlement.
However, very few accounts of same-sex activity between women exist from this period and it is therefore extremely difficult to draw any lesbizn conclusions for the Sydney region. Those accounts that are available in written form were produced by Europeans after settlement and can therefore only offer a limited and potentially Massage del mar Tamworth picture of female homosexual activity in Australia before German-born missionary, Carl Strehlow, who headed the Finke River Mission at Hermannsburg in Furst Australia, between andprovided lesnian following account of sexual activity between Aboriginal women:.
The lesbixn vice of the women, woiatakerama carried out using a little stick bound with string, called iminta, by two women, one of whom performs the role of the manis practised by the eastern and western Aranda [and] occurs also among the western Loritja, the Yumu and Waiangara in the west, and among the Katitja, Ilpara, Warramunga etcs. The Loritja call this vice: nambia pungani.
Accounts Hot sexy babez in Australia from the writings of white, male observers, such as Strehlow, are inevitably overlaid with European notions of same-sex activity as 'unnatural' and a 'vice' and such evidence is further problematised by the fact that European men would have enjoyed limited opportunities to record activities occurring in women's spaces.
Nevertheless, an ilpindja or love magic song in which women show their labia to each other, was reported by Geza Roheim, an anthropologist working in Central Australia in the late s, suggesting that Aboriginal oral literature may also have referred to female same-sex activity.
Gendered customs practised within Aboriginal communities also point to a history of women's camps and sacred spaces in which women elders could live together away from the settlement and engage in women-centred activities. The concentrations of gendered essences or powers within these sites are dangerous to men without the appropriate protection and men therefore avoid the area.
