Posture Magazine had this great idea to show Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winner “Blue is The Warmest Color” to a group of lesbians to get their take on the “controversial,” “steamy” — and some say “gratuitous” — sex scenes between the two lead actresses.

The results were pretty funny, ranging from laughter to boredom. One person said it obviously was two straight chicks pretending to be gay, and pretty over the top.

When asked, “Is that what lesbian sex is really like?” one woman quips, “It’s what we would hope it to be like,” adding with a sly grin, “in lesbian sex there’s whole lot more crying.”
