Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs from the TV show “Community” did a sexy, faux lesbian pin-up photo shoot for GQ‘s August issue, and like our friends over at Jezebel, I’m feeling a bit conflicted about it. On the one hand, I’m a huge fan of classic pin-up photography, and anything that recreates Bettie Page’s hot fetish photos is pretty cool with me. Also, the two ladies seem like they enjoyed themselves. This video makes it look like lots of fun!

On the other hand, I am getting a little tired of seeing lad mags play up the “girl-on-girl action is hot, but only when they’re doing it for our benefit” thing. Also, the way they framed it was very Girls Gone Wild. “Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs Did This Lesbian Scene for Us,” the headline reads. The sub-headline: “And all we had to do was ask nicely. The hilarious and hilariously gorgeous girls of ‘Community’ are such good sports, aren’t they?” It’s as if lesbian action is only hot if the girls are reluctantly coaxed into doing it against their will. They’re not real lesbians, see? They’re only doing it to get your dick hard. Personally, I think it’s a lot hotter when two women get it on because they’re actually into it, but I am one of those insane sex-positive feminists who buys Tristan Taormino’s DVDs and gets off on people who are doing sexy things for the camera because they genuinely enjoy it. (Granted, I’m a woman, which makes it easier to insert myself into a lesbian fantasy without having to pretend that all lesbians are secretly straight or bi.) What do you make of it?
