This blog is on sexuality in general, encompassing homosexuality and heterosexuality.
I went to college for psychology with a concentration in sexuality and human relationships. Through my exploits of sexuality and human interaction I have noticed a few things.
1: Everyone can distinguish between an attractive male AND female. For instance, I am straight but if I see an attractive guy I am comfortable enough to say so.
2: Everyone likes to feel good about themselves. Regardless of your sexual PREFERENCE a complement of how attractive you are hold basically equal bearing from and male as it does from a female. Thanks Dallas ;)
I personally believe that everyone has the potential to be gay or straight. I believe that people are people and are attracted to one another regardless of gender. However I don't believe that people are gay because the choose such a decadently luscious lifestyle. There are a few theories on the market right now.
1: Hormonal exposure during the gestation period. I think this a possibility but I think it is the more likely candidate for transgender.
2: It is a part of evolution to check human populations. Possible, nature does have mechanisms for regulating populations of organisms.
3: Choice. Bullshit! What 16 year old kid chooses a lifestyle to get the shit kicked out of him and ostracized by his family?
I believe that society has put a hamper on human sexuality. We are not allowed to pursue and discover our sexual potential because of society. Guys won't admit they they think Robert Downey Jr. is attractive because society frowns on it as being a 'fag'. As a matter of fact I can actually name more actors I think are attractive than I can actresses. Once people become comfortable with what they actually think and feel I think we will see an increase in sexual exploration.
-A SIDE NOTE-
I think that humans have so much sexual potential because of our brain development. We have a complex parietal lobe and it functions in conjunction with our frontal lobe. Because we have a highly evolved cerebral cortex we can experience sexuality in a totally different way than other species on this planet.
