Lesbian scenes are hard to find in shunga, compared to gay male scenes. Usually they were ordered by a collector. Now, you have to be aware that male homosexuality was closely connected to kabuki theater and sexual fantasy was already included and at same time Yoshiwara brothels had men as target group. Therefore, it was not taboo but rather an economic side to such scenes that led to small production of such views.
On this particular scene we can observe two women lubricating dildo made out of turtle´s shell with aphrodisiac from small cups.
