Are 1/3 of Straight Men “Bisexual”

It’s well known that many men who identify as straight by orientation (that would be 100-0’s, 90-10’s and 80-20’s, will nevertheless have sex with men on occasion or even more often than that.

It’s not that they are gay at all. They are basically straight and have minor to zero interest in gay sex, but for some reason a lot of men will just do it anyway. 31% of all men who are predominantly straight are nevertheless somewhere from 90-10 to 60-40 on the scale below (indicating some level of gay interest), so as long as there is some homosexual interest, it’s logical than some of these men would act on it.

However, it is quite stunning right there that 1/3 of all straight men have at least some homosexual interest. How many people are aware of facts like this? But what about the 100-0’s? Why would they do it with a man (and they do)? I don’t get it.

100-0: Maximum heterosexual, minimum homosexual
90-10: Maximum heterosexual, incidental homosexual
80-20: Maximum heterosexual, significant homosexual
70-30: Maximum heterosexual, strong homosexual
60-40: Maximum heterosexual, very strong strong homosexual
50-50: Maximum heterosexual, maximal homosexual
40-60: Maximum homosexual, very strong heterosexual
30-70: Maximum homosexual, strong heterosexual
20-80: Maximum homosexual, significant heterosexual
10-90: Maximum homosexual, incidental heterosexual
0-100: Maximum homosexual, minimal heterosexual

How do you all feel about this new science showing that 1/3 of all straight men have at least some gay interest? Does it seem frightening, stunning, shocking or unbelievable to the point where you question the data? Or do you tend to shrug your shoulders and like Freud, the Cultural Left, the hip community and most gay men, instead think that “everyone is a little bit bisexual?”

If you don’t know about Freud, his position that all humans were basically bisexual at their core but that in the course of development, they simply fixate on one object or another (males or females or maybe adults or children) and put all of their drive or libido in the direction of that newly denoted object. The other half of the bisexual drive then either falls away, is distorted and turned towards the preferred object, or simply repressed.

I am not sure if Freud was right about this and it’s never been proven one way or another, but it’s an interesting theory.

    Probably might be the case, especially with all the porn around. Though it might sound creepy and I might get mocked for the statement, “Really who knows what’s going on somebody’s head when they’re in porn land?” You got BDSM of all sorts, pissing, fem-dom, girls with dicks, trannies etc..,.

    Of course, there are some fetishes I can’t understand, like guys who like women with big muscles. Any dude into that has reached an unrepentable level of depravity and needs help.

    Anyhow, someone who likes porn cannot judge gays and bisexuals much due to the fact, as I said, they (the porn loving homophobe) saturates himself in a porn environment.

      BTW though, I find guys kissing and fucking, and visual depictions of that utterly disgusting (as in wanting to puke). However, just seeing guys naked doesn’t repulse me. Also, seeing women screw and them naked together doesn’t bother me, as it doesn’t most guys.

        That is your parasympathetic nervous system in full operation. When you watch TV and see someone casting a fishing reel, part of your brain is firing they exact same muscles as the fisherman is when moving that rod to toss out the bait. Just, like when your dream, you don’t actually move your real arms, but in some sense “experience” what the character is experiencing. This is why we don’t mind the presence of a male porn actor in regular porn, in fact his presence is what makes pornography so arousing in that a shadow of our brain is in fact experiencing just what he is as he pounds the young hot chick in the movie. It is also why we become so disgusted when we see two guys kissing.

      Possibly the macho side of me is repulsed by sissy behavior among two men, as in kissing, fucking etc.. and holding hands (even with clothes on). It was just something programmed into me. I just can’t stand to see it, and see it as wrong.

        But I’m not a big homopobe to the point, like some jerks are, where they accuse anyone who looks like the lead singer of the cure, or in any way dresses in a “less macho” way is gay. Generally I don’t feel uncomfortable unless i know the guy is gay cause he’s actually touching, kissing, holding hands etc.. with another guy. Then I feel wierd.
