Best lesbian sex symbol -  STEPHANIE ADAMS

Now that we have The L Word, people are starting to pick up on the fact that dykes can be hotties too. None more so than the tall, slender STEPHANIE ADAMS, who not only was a Playboy Playmate, but is a descendant of President John Adams and a writer of occult books. It's hard to turn a page in a queer rag without seeing the willowy model peeking out in a bikini, or nothing at all.      -Rachel Kramer Bussel
