And because the way women tend to view sex (it is as much emotional as physical), I do think it is easier for a woman to find same sex
intercourse to be acceptable.
You are partly correct. Yes, women like for sex to be emotionally engaging....
I find the idea of two women engaging in sex together to be repulsive. I am NOT interested in seeing, touching, smelling, kissing ANY part of a woman
(save her cheek, or a dry, closed-lips peck, sort of off to the side.)
Having said that, there are women who I see as "attractive" - or 'cute', or 'beautiful' - still, I haven't the SLIGHTEST interest in 'exploring their
bodies'. *shudder* So rather than say I have "latent homosexual urges", I see it as an appreciation of the beauty of some
humans' - male and
female - physical forms. I have been approached by gay women, and bisexual women, and even on one inebriated party night tried a "real" kiss with a
woman (who I couldn't stand in person) on a dare from my (now-ex)husband. It grossed me out. Ew. Ick. But then again, HE kinda grossed me out,
(In fact, I'm a little prudish myself, because I
would want NOTHING to do with a woman's parts, I can't really understand what men
so compelling about us women... )
Another thought, now that I've read all the responses:
Who we are attracted to is not 'controllable' - I have had extremely handsome men around me that I wasn't "attracted" to (although all the women
around could barely resist them)....and at the same time, I've had unendurable "crushes" on people who were no more suitable for me than trying to
dissolve oil in water.
Hormones are a systematic part of what we are; we CAN NOT turn them on and off at will. Just like we can't stop our own hearts from beating or the
blood coursing through our veins. We are "captives" in these bodies, and at their mercy. Akragon has a thread open now about having an infatuation
with a young lady who seems particularly ill-suited to him personality-wise, and he's struggling with that dilemma. I know how that feels...
Now that I'm post-menopausal I have VERY little interest in sex at all. (Much to my poor, patient husband's chagrine.)
