SILVA, Gabriela Boldrini da  y  MENANDRO, Maria Cristina Smith. About love between women: notes on conjugality and sexuality. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-23. ISSN 1983-8220.

The objective of this work was to know the characteristics of affective-sexual relationships between women. This is a descriptive study with a qualitative approach, using a semi-structured interview as an instrument. The participants were five women, aged between 25 to 37 years, who have established an affective-sexual partnership with another woman, in the form of cohabitation for at least one year. The qualitative analysis of phenomenological inspiration identified particularities and convergent points in the reported experiences. The data indicate that the life trajectory of these women is marked by violence, while the constitution of a new family is permeated by intense affection, companionship and partnership. Knowing the relationships between women is important to demystify the stigmas that are still perpetuated in the form of violence against lesbians and bisexual women. It is pointed out that for future research it is interesting to expand the age range of the participants, as well as to use social class and race markers.
