GSN asks if girl-on-girl action and celebrity lesbian publicity stunts have lost their ability to shock and titilate

It used to feel impossible to open a paper without seeing color photos of the latest 'lesbian' stunt.

When Madonna and Britney Spears locked lips at MTV's 20th Video Awards, a small library could have been filled with the public reaction.

Today, in contrast, brief reports on how pop group The Saturdays like to 'perve on girls' go largely unnoticed.

It seems that everybody has moved on.

Perhaps the existence of 'celesbians' - or more accurately, 'celebicurious women' - has got old enough that it is no longer news.
