According to one psychologist, you may only THINK that you are attracted to the opposite sex, but in fact straight people don't exist. This psychologist claims that we are all bisexual and get turned on by both men and women, regardless of what we say our preference is.
Researchers asked male and female volunteers to watch a seies of porn videos to find out what turned them on the most and what didn't. The research done questions society's strict definitions of sexuality and learns that older males still struggle with the idea of bisexuality whereas younger males and females are more sexually fluid.
During this study both male and female volunteers were asked to watch porn involving men or women while experts measured how much their pupils dilated as a sign of sexual arousal.
Women's eyes dilated while watching both men and women and also women with women whereas male volunteers pupils dilated while watching both men and women pleasure themselves.
The point of this study was to hopefully change the perceptions of cultural sexuality so more people can be comfortable with who they are attracted to.
“We’ve always recognised mostly straight women, that is, women who mostly are straight but if the right woman comes along, well maybe she’ll try it out. We used to think that was only a female phenomenon,” Researcher, Dr. Savin-Williams tells The Sun.
“There are aspects [of male sexuality] along a continuum, just as we have always recognised with women.
“Men have gotten so much cultural c**p put on them that even if a man does have some sexual attraction to guys, they would never say it.”
Whereas previous research has found that a woman's sexuality can change throughout her life, not so much the case for men because society doesn't allow them to admit their feelings towards men.
Additionally, historically speaking, sexual orientation models have only been two exclusive categories comprised of exclusively heterosexual or exclusively homosexual and anything other than that is deemed 'transitional,' 'confusion,' or 'experimental' and because of this bisexual individuals are usually eliminated from research, which is a huge mistake.
In this survey, researchers also concluded that more people identify themselves as "not exclusively heterosexual" than those that do identify themselves as "exclusively heterosexual." The smallest group surveyed were the ones that claimed they were exclusively homosexual.
While other researchers found that being gay is written in your DNA, they also found two distinct areas of genes that may influence whether a man is gay or straight.
