    that's kind of interesting. i have a friend who's bi, and explained that he's attracted to both, that he's attracted to women more, but finding guys to make with the sex is easier.

    meh who cares. i'm not going to throw a study in a friends face and accuse them of lying.


    if they say they are bisexual, so be it.

    that conclusion operates on the premise that reaction to porn indicates sexual attraction. 1/3 of the men had no reaction at all to the porn, and using lesbian porn to measure a man's attraction to women seems rather odd. :dunno:

    any port in a storm :mamoru:




    Interesting study, though it needs to be expanded. And a much different idea then most bi- girls I know. They have dated both without issues/thinking about it.


    How many bi guys date men and women ? Not just sex, but actual dating.

    I think it's flawed only due to the small sample size and there should be more categories, such as formerly straight for the gay men who used to date and probably slept with more women than the average straight guy, or experimentally bi for the women in college who did it for attention.

    Psychologically I can see how it would make sense though. Men in prison who participate in sex with other men may not see themselves as gay or bi. There's also men who are so desperate to get off that they seek sex with other men. You also have married men who think of themselves as secretly gay. And then there's people who like the rush of being out of their comfort zone.

    So were these guys considered "asexual?" Very surprising that 1/3rd of all men are asexual, wouldn't you say?

    Or was the testing method considered inaccurate?

    Or was this just conveniently ignored? I wonder.

    Or they were simply not turned on by lesbian/gay porn.

    Not really. Not every straight guy likes to watch girl-girl.

    I understood that "the videos" just meant porn generally. Where does it say that the videos refers only to homosexual videos?

    ...well?

    I'm always surprised by how loose the standards are for drawing conclusions from studies, particularly in this field. Some people were simply unaffected by porn - so they got dropped??? Maybe they should have had people make out with each other instead of porn.

    Did you not read the article ?

    The men viewed an 11-minute nonsexual film, followed by several two-minute sexual films and another neutral film. The sex films depicted either men having sex with men or women having sex with women.

    What happens when you enter into a study with an agenda in mind rather than with an open mind.

    Oh I see it below. Thanks. I still don't see how this makes for an accurate testing measure.

    oh and if any of you know about the controversy surrounding j michael bailey, you'll know why lots of people don't take his research seriously.
