So You’re Writing a Sapphic Historical Romance: Questions to Consider The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 53d with Heather Rose Jones In this episode we talk about the questions to ask about sapphic relationships and how they are perceived in your story’s setting: How easy is it to live outside of the heterosexual marriage paradigm? What are the economic, legal, and religious constraints on your characters? What is the ordinary “background noise” of non-sexual displays of affection? How does the culture of the setting understand privacy and how does that affect your characters’ behavior? What are the realities and perceptions around sex between women in this setting? How does the culture of the setting understand gender and sexuality? How are female couples depicted in popular culture of the time? A transcript of this podcast may be available here.
