Homosexual activity in women is not age-related. But unlike gay men, lesbians often feel under pressure to stay invisible, particularly older and married women. Compared with male homosexuals, lesbians are more faithful; the majority of them have less than 10 partners. An investigation conducted in France found that 56% of the formed a permanent couple, compared with on 36% of male homosexuals. They more often meet their partners at the houses at friends, some 60.6% according to the same investigation; whereas, 62.7% of male homosexuals found their partners in specialized premises. Lesbians are usually less despised and less persecuted, because they are less visible and because what happens among women is considered less important in a male-oriented society. Unlike male homosexuals, lesbians are rarely suspected of paedophilia.
