A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, claims everyone has some ounce of homosexuality in them.
According to the study, there is nothing like a “straight” man or woman. The researchers had men and women watch different kinds of pornographic material, taking notes on their reaction as they watched.
”After pornographic materials were shown to straight men and women, the researchers, rather than relying on self-reporting, looked at physiological responses to the sexual material. Namely pupil dilation, which is a sign of sexual arousal.
The study found that women’s eyes dilated when they viewed a man and a woman being sexuality intimate, and when two women were sexually intimate.”
Study author Ritch C Savin-Williams, who is also the Director of Developmental Psychology at Cornell University, said: “We show straight men a picture of a woman masturbating and they respond just like a straight guy, but then you also show them a guy masturbating and their eyes dilate a little bit. So we’re actually able to show physiologically that all guys are not either gay, straight, or bi.”
Willaims argues that bisexuality in women is more acceptable than in men as the men are still struggling with patriarchal stigma.
