Our lucky friends on the far side of the Atlantic are being treated to a new dramatic television series called “Tipping the Velvet”, featuring explicit lesbian romps on BBC2. Says one of the actresses:

“We did all our love scenes in a bedroom in one afternoon, although I do admit I had to fortify myself.

“We had a couple of glasses of wine and a bar of Galaxy and off we went. It was quite nice actually.

“There’s a bit of oral sex but I’m under the covers so you don’t see a lot. But there is a lot of girl-on-girl action.
