Understanding Gay Male Sex as a Heterosexual
The world is becoming an increasingly more accepting environment for members of the LGBTIQ community. Admittedly, we still have a long way to go until all beautifully diverse sexualities are accepted, in all corners of the world.
Here are some of the most ridiculous gay male sex myths debunked. Addressing them just might speed up the process of making the world a better place for our wonderfully diverse sexualities. (By the way, we have some specials running) to help you lovely men celebrate and explore your sexuality)
- Sexual experiences at a very early age are indicative of one's sexual orientation as an adult.
The myth exist that individuals who have been sexually abused as children are prone to ‘become’ gay. The Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, USA, dispelled this myth in 2006 and found the assumption is completely unsubstantiated. The findings argued that many heterosexual individuals have had traumatising sexual experiences inflicted by members of their own sex, but are still heterosexual just as many gay individuals have had early traumatising heterosexual experiences, but remain gay.
- All gay men have multiple sex partners with STI’s
Many heterosexual individuals have multiple partners who don’t practice safe sex. It is the responsibility of all individuals who choose to engage in casual sex with various partners to practice safe sex. Implying that reckless sex is limited to only gay men is blatant bigotry.
- Gay relationships have a ‘man’ and a ‘woman’ role player during sex
The world has been indoctrinated for a long time that a ‘normal’ sex must have the feminine and masculine traits, physically and psychologically, to be ‘natural’. Sex is certainly not solely based on masculinity and femininity but rather on the compatibility of personalities and physical attraction. Some gay men practice anal sex and come to think of it, both parties will have uhm well, you know, the tools to try it both ways. Gay sex, just like heterosexual sex, is about what both parties feel comfortable with.
- All gay men have anal sex
Some people just aren’t as fond of sex as others. Many people opt not to have sex by penetration but to rather explore other methods to be sexually satisfied such as oral, role-play, BDSM and toys. If both parties consent to anal sex, they should be able to do so freely as many heterosexual partners practice anal. For some obscure and unknown reason many societies have a way of condemning anal sex between men, but condones the behaviour if it occurs between a man and a woman.
