The L Word was a show about the lives of a group of lesbian friends and their lovers. It was in essence a soap opera revolving around the lives and loves of these women who love women. When a reality show came out two years ago entitled The Real L Word I had my doubts. I doubted that it could be as titillating as The L Word. Boy was I wrong! It might even be more risky, racy and wild. Partly because it is real and partly because these ladies are wild in every sense of the world. If it is sex, fights, drunken behaviour, and drama that you are looking for then you have come to the right place.
