Sophie Marceau: the actress who makes the most fantasize women
updated: Apr 26, 2018
Sex between women does not affect French women. But if they had to take the plunge, they have a rather determined idea of the celebrity they would choose: Sophie Marceau.
Not all celebrities are unanimous. But there is one that gathers opinions: Sophie Marceau. Regularly cited in the top personalities favorite in France, the actress is also the subject of fantasy , if we believe the latest survey Ifop (1).
Among the women interviewed, one in six has already felt a desire for a woman. To the point of taking the plunge? Yes, for some of them. And they already know what celebrity they would choose for that.
Half of respondents attracted to women confess a taste for Sophie Marceau . They are rather in agreement with their male counterparts, who are 70% to admit a penchant for the actress.
Other actresses complete this top: 46% of women could make love with Cécile de France and Leïla Bekhti. “Known for her role of lesbian assumed in the trilogy of the Spanish Inn , the Belgian actress undoubtedly seduces women bis or heteros usually sensitive to a behavior or a self-presentation socially coded as masculine,” Ifop analysis in a statement.
But this survey delivers another interesting observation. If lesbian sex is one of the main research sites sites pornographic films , it is mostly men.
Only 17% of women have ever seen two lovers make love , or wish to do so. Among men, two-thirds of respondents say the same thing. The gap is obvious.
As far as the practices represented on the screen are concerned, these gentlemen show even more enthusiasm than women. Where 55% of women would like to see cunnilingus unfold, 72% of men want it. And this subject is, by far, the most consensual.
These answers can be explained “probably because [cunnilingus] is still the poor relation of the sex scenes between men and women visible in the X films, films which are still too often the result of a very phallic vision. centered sexuality “.
