Women are never straight - they are either gay or bisexual, study suggests

Post by feelthelove on Sun Nov 08, 2015 1:39 pm

Most women are never straight - they are either gay or bisexual, a study suggests.

Although lesbians are much more attracted to females, most women who say they are straight were aroused by videos of both naked men and naked women.

The study, led by Doctor Gerulf Rieger from the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex, showed a series of videos of naked men and women to 235 women and recorded their responses.

It found 82 per cent of the women tested were aroused by both sexes, based on indicators such as whether their pupils dilated in response to sexual stimuli.

Of the women who identified as straight, 74 per cent were strongly sexual aroused by videos of both attractive men and attractive women.

In contrast, lesbians showed much stronger sexual responses to women than to men.

"Even though the majority of women identify as straight, our research clearly demonstrates that when it comes to what turns them on, they are either bisexual or gay, but never straight," Dr Riegler said.

Saw this on Facebook earlier. I question the truth of this. But then I guess we'd have to get the views of some of the women here on the forum Razz

I wonder if anyone will share Les Laughing  I think that straight women appreciate the beauty of women in a different way to the way in which straight men would appreciate another man with good looks.

I can find women attractive, does that make me a bi-sexual?  No, I don't think it does.  Would I want to be in a relationship with another woman, no I wouldn't.  I like men

I think that's the defining factor FtL.

Actually a lot of my friends, straight friends, can honestly say if they think a man is attractive or not (generally, not sexually). But like you would have no interest in doing anything or having a relationship with a man.

It is different for many older men though lol

But the article states straight women are aroused by naked women. That is almost certainly not true of straight guys with naked guys Shocked

Reminds me of this..............



Maybe it's just not such a big deal for women.  I have a pretty open mind, well ok, a very open mind on these things. I can find women sexually attractive but I never felt that attraction was strong enough to act on it.

I've been married since God was a boy anyway but if I had of been attracted to a girl when I was younger I wouldn't have been hung about about.  Maybe I would have kissed a girl to see if I liked it

But that would have been it, I can't imagine being in love or a sexual relationship with another woman.  I love men too much

That's because beauty (whatever that is) is not only attractiveness, but power as well.

Most women who watch porn are not watching the man's cock, nor the man,  because cocks aren't that attractive to most women and the men are normally blah.

Women like looking at other women. They do it all the time and most women look at other women's boobs all the time, either in comparison or becaseu they like to admire a nice rack.

Not saying they get turned on by other women necessarily, but there are certainly alot of "lipstick lesbians": only like the top half and care nothing for the bottom half and not thinking of having the "tuna wrap" Razz

In a nutshell, straight women are far likelier to be able to think about sex with a other woman, than a straight male thinking about a straight male.
And most women don't get turned off by two good looking women having sex either.

My Wife was a Room maid and then head of Housekeeping at a large Hotel...She has seen all sorts and all sizes, and has walked in on a 3 some, woman on woman, and man on man and any other combination you can think of.

Utter twaddle. I can appreciate physique,outer beauty etc...in both male and females but that doesn't make me bi. I am not sexually attracted to women, just as I am not sexually attracted to every man.

Don't think I've ever been with a girl that was bi-sexual. If she was I wish she would have told me so that I could have asked her to bring along some of her girl pals Laughing
