I feel uniquely able to answer this question - at least the male version of this question - as I have variously through my life wanted to become gay (or at least bisexual). And after years of
Do people ever go from gay to straight? Are any conversion or 'correction/cure' therapies or strategies proven to work?
I can only speak for myself - YES! After almost 20 years of living a homosexual lifestyle, I broke free. My conversion therapy was simply the touch of Christ. I rode the entire gay spectrum - from gay clubs, to the gay music circuit, a
To understand this question, we should learn why so many people "become" LGBT. I don't mean to offensive when I use "become". Some sicentists said that reason could be that the mother's body mounts an immune attack on the fetus of her unborn son. But babies have
No one "turns gay" or "turns straight." Sometimes people who have been acting straight for years because of social pressures will want to stop lying to themselves and everyone around them and "come out" as gay. You've likely heard of "coming out of the
I'm just going to come right out and say it.I hate Gay Pride. I hate Black Pride. I hate Muslim Pride and Women's Pride and all the other damn pride things people celebrate. Yeah, take that convention!Damn it! There's a torch burning mob
I haven't personally met any. But hey, it's a big world; with three and a half billion men in it, I reckon there's a straight dude somewhere who wishes he were gay.I more often meet straight guys who wish they were bisexual. Im one of them. I like sex, I'm sexually adventurous, and

Hello Jordyn. Thanks for the A2A. There was no realization for there was never any confusion. I started liking boys at 13. I was attracted to older men as well. Jean Claude Van Damn, Bruce Lee, Christian Slater, Patrick Dempsey, etc.I've never been attracted to women. Never had a
Imagine this: your country has made marriage illegal for all individuals, gay or straight, unless they are biologically capable of having their own children or intend to adopt a child.A man and woman-perhaps widowed or divorced-meet when they're in their late 50s and fall in love. Maybe they live together, maybe they don't. Maybe they have
Because they think they made that choice.As many have pointed out, beginning with Kinsey, sexual orientation is a spectrum. One end of the spectrum is 100% heterosexual, where someone has never had a single fantasy about any member of
I am straight male and I do turn my head to see really handsome men . I really enjoy looking at their beautiful face and body and appreciate the amount of effort for taking care of themselves.For me, what is beautiful that is beautiful. I am very much confident about my own sexuality and
How does it feel to be a straight guy? Even if you see a guy with his abs showing and muscles pumping you won't feel a thing?
For me, personally, at the very most I'll think to myself,
Depends on the person.Heterosexuality is the sexual attraction of the opposite sex or gender. Of course, this ignores those individuals' personalities and appearance, so heterosexuals can in fact be flexible in that sense if they are attracted to a wide variety of different people, but they are limited (not really the right word to use) to
Probably not. As the others say, she is in a heterosexual marriage, complete with kids and has never been known to have had a lesbian relationship or even a fling. This is not an absolute garantuee of course but why
No. The campier the straight man is, the more likely that he is not even straight at all. He's likely to be either a closeted gay, or he will come out later on. Most completely heterosexual men are not campy.As far as straight men who are so blazingly effeminate that they are just about queens,
The lowest estimate that I have seen, derived from the most optimistic view of prevalence of non hetero orientation, would suggest that a minimum of 70% of the world is straight while about 10% each are gay, lesbian and bi.
I have to tell you, I tried really, really hard!I grew up with a physically abusive dad who, it turned out, was also a pedophile. When I got to college, just sitting next to an overtly masculine person on the bus could send me into a full-blown panic attack.I tried with all my humanly might to have relationships with
Yes, of course.Take me as an example. I am a man, in the most usual sense: an adult human with XY sex-determining chromosomes and ‘standard' male genitals. I have never been attracted to other male bodies, nor even towards special
I am sorry you feel that being gay is perverted and stupid. I do not see it that way. I see it as a demographic, just as being Asian or middle aged is a demographic. There is nothing you can do to change your sexual orientation. You can change behavior and attitude, but that is it. I doubt
No, I`m a firm believer that people are born with a particular sexual orientation. But it doesn`t mean everyone will know right since they are little. So what can possibly happen slowly is discovering that you are a homosexual and/or coming to terms with it (admitting it
Oh, sure!Another man's sexual orientation has no impact on me liking or disliking him.I have a few gay male friends and we get along famously. There have been a few occasions when I was mistaken to be a partner
And again ...However can I know whether I think differently from a straight person? How do I know how a straight person thinks?We're all different.
Do people ever go from gay to straight? Are any conversion or 'correction/cure' therapies or strategies proven to work?
I'm not sure if my answer is at all helpful for your situation, but it's something that changed the way I navigate this world. When I was a freshman in high school, I started to have a sudden attraction to women. I'd had a couple of boyfriends by that point and yet
Do you think a heterosexual man or woman deserves to know up front if their SO is bisexual before any sexual relationship begins?
Women like men who are interesting. Men who have hobbies and passions.My fiancé grew up poor on the south side of Chicago. He's been arrested four times. He's had to overcome a lot. His dad died when he was 4 from a drug overdose. He had no money to
As someone who not only has heard of people who changed sexual preference, and have known people who personally knew someone who changed sexual preference, but also as someone who has been heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual (not in that order), and someone who s invested much in this subject of my own study and other
Hello, I am so sorry that you are receiving patronising comments from persons who would like to flaunt their choice of sexuality. Unfortunately, they are probably generation y's or millennials who have been indoctrinated by their university lecturers and influenced by positive propaganda that
If you're asking this question, you have some reason to doubt whether you're heterosexual or not.Some of that doubt may simply be living in a very restrictive society, so any kind of emotional connection to a person of the same sex may frighten you, especially if you're in your adolescence. But if
Okay, so I just answered a question which is how to turn heterosexual. In the answer to that question is the answer to this question, and because Im feeling lazy today, I will put here the answer I gave to that question. so, here it is:As someone who not only has heard of people who
How do closeted gay men in heterosexual marriages have children? Surely, wouldn't the man be unaroused and therefore unable to become erect and inseminate the woman?
I was the wife of a closeted gay man and had two children with him.I was sexually aggressive.Most men will become aroused if you know how to touch them.If I didn't initiate, there was no sex.Often, when I initiated, he did not want sex. I used to go to
No one "turns gay" or "turns straight." Sometimes people who have been acting straight for years because of social pressures will want to stop lying to themselves and everyone around them and "come out" as gay. You've likely heard of "coming out of the closet," and that just means admitting to the world that
If someone is a heterosexual but doesn't want to be a heterosexual, is it mandatory for that person to be a heterosexual?
Sexuality can never be personally mandatory. Even in countries that may punish sexual preferences by death, it won't change how a person feels, they may just hide it.If you are heterosexual and don't want to be, you have a few choices-Date the people you are
No, the idea is ridiculous.Heterosexuals make up around 50% of the population. Bisexuals are around 45% - but most of those are strongly heterosexual-leaning. So heterosexuality can never become
Well, firstly, not all gay men are the ‘snap-snap-head swivel-girlfriend' kind of
I'm going to answer a different question. (Don't worry, it'll answer yours just the same.)I'm biromantic, but I'm gay. I simply tell all my friends and family and the like that I'm gay, just coz it's easier, and coz it's simpler to say that
Is there a difference between a straight man in a heterosexual relationship and a bisexual man in a heterosexual relationship?
Ontology and taxonomy can be hard, but often there are pretty clear higher level boundaries between definitions.Terms like "straight man" and "bisexual man" describe how someone feels attraction, not the relationship style they are in, either currently, in the past, or in the future. "Heterosexual relationship" describes the nature of the
I haven't personally met any. But hey, it's a big world; with three and a half billion men in it, I reckon there's a straight dude somewhere who wishes he were gay.I more often meet straight guys who wish they were bisexual. Im one of them. I like sex, I'm sexually adventurous, and I'm as straight as
I'm straight and I give gay men advice all of the time. What with being a business lawyer and small business coach , some portion of my clients are gay men and I give them pretty much the same advice as I give
Natural variation.Almost no pattern is 100% consistent in nature.In humans, genital sex, chromosomal sex, gender identity, sexuality and other characteristics tend to align in one of two ways. You can see a discernable overall pattern where most people are either man or woman, and

The answer is simple: I do not understand them :DNow let me elaborate a bit, but before I start:A DISCLAIMER: I do not think my thoughts are the only correct ones or "correct" at all, as there are no correct/incorrect thoughts, they just are and they
Heterosexual means being attracted to the opposite sex.Homosexual is being attracted to the same sex.Gay means the same thing as homosexual.Here are some others:Lesbian is used to refer to female homosexuals, though I have noticed this is becoming less common.Bisexual is attraction to both sexesPansexual is attraction to people,
I've answered this before and the answer is still the same; there's nothing about a man's hairy a** that turns me on. I LOVE WOMEN. I think they are God's finest creation and they (and their bodies) are the finest thing in the world.That being said, your question was,
What motivates a person to be heterosexual, and how do they become heterosexual? What are the reasons behind someone being heterosexual?
Do you realize that this is actually a great question?The answer, however, is quite simple. I didn't choose to be a heterosexual. Just as homosexual people don't choose to be homosexuals. This is the crux of this question, and lots of people don't realize it.Sexuality is not really a matter of
It started...when I was very young.When I was about 9 or 10, I started having a little fun at sleepovers. The funny thing was...we never said it was practicing for boys. We never even kissed. We just talked and touched each other. It seemed completely innocent to me at the time, and in retrospect it was pretty innocent,
I would maybe have answered differently but... no, I'll be mature. People who make a big deal about it are literally or subconsciously (societally) sexually repressed. They - the men - likely don't give oral to their partners. Breasts, those are okay because you can't hide them, there they are. So from tacky
Why do some straight men, who are not pursued by women, assume that gay men would want them sexually?
My understanding of the situation is this:I do believe that men are generally much more willing to have casual sex than women. Its a stereotype but for a good reason, as a group we're pretty indiscriminate.Now anyone who assumes that others would want them sexually, they have a big ego.If they are not pursued
