Stone femme

Stone femme has been used to describe several different kinds of femme (feminine) identities, sometimes within a broader dyke identity or culture. People who identify as stone femme have patterned the name for their identity after the more widely known term stone butch. Stone femme is used to describe a femme who is the 'receiver' in sexual interactions, and does want to be touched genitally. A stone butch is a female-bodied person who is strongly 'masculine' in character and dress, who is the "giver" in sexual interactions, and who does not wish to be touched genitally.

Stone Femme - 'a Femme who is sexually untouchable, a Femme who is "very" femme, a Femme top, or a Femme who is partnered with or attracted to very masculine/stone Butches.' -from

Some people have used the term stone femme to describe their identity as an individual's personal sexual and gender identity and boundaries regarding their expression of both. Use of the term is not dependent on the identity of the stone femme's partner.

Some stone femmes do not identify as "lesbians" due to the disconnect between the political and sexual connotations of the word and the reality of their experiences. Other stone femmes do identify as queer, as dykes, and/or as lesbians.
