I know quite a few people that are homosexual and some really believe all people are a little gay. I believe this study possibly has an agenda but I'll reserve judgement until i can read more about it.

I know a few women that would strongly disagree because they've experimented and just didn't like it.

Out of all the GF i have had in this life only one did not admit to be attracted to women,why do you think women go together at the pub to go to the bathroom holding hands,hell they go in there and compare booty...has anyone anywhere ever seen to men go to bathroom holding hands (other than in a gay bar) and compare bits ?...i have absolutely no doubt woman are attracted to women and i mean all women,and what proob4 mentioned makes sense,women come from women it is not much of a stretch that there is an attraction there...

And women are much better looking than men but that us just my own bias view

I'm an hetero female and think the opposite. I love the female form. I would much rather look at naked women than naked men! Women are gorgeous.

I don't know about this study, I have a problem with the word never as well.

This is just more garbage to get people to associate normality to the immoral gay life style.
That is ALL that this garbage is.

Yeah, that must be it. You cracked the case. It's all a part of the immoral gay lifestyle agenda. It doesn't matter if 100% of the women studied physically responded with sexual arousal when viewing other women. They are all in on the agenda. All of them faked it in order to fool people to associate normality to the immoral gay lifestyle. Totally.

Just like the scientists who dug up all those gay bones Satan buried to trick us into thinking that homosexuality has been common since recorded history. Freakin' agenda.

I think it's because women are sexier!

Plus every guy knows deep down how disgusting he really is and realizes other men are probably similar.

I looked at this study and had to wonder what on earth is the purpose of it and why funding was given to it. It doesn't seem to have had much affect on the population does it?

That word never, as several others have point out is like a brick wall of sheer hypothesis and I can see this view coming up in arguments "Well ya gay anyway" being slung around.

However, if you do look at advertising it is all about your are sexy if you use our products and the pressure on women especially celebrities to look younger and sexier than their years is a huge industry.

I suspect though nature plays a huge part in this in that women are the harmonisers of the species. If they were territorial like men they might view other women as threats, but women communicate and cooperate with each other normally and importantly step in with childcare.

There has always been that quiet 'sisterhood' that most men see existing with their partners and their female friends. The dynamics change when a group of women meet up with their men, my wife often comments on this. Teens herd and all look alike with their fashion choices, watching each new trend etc. They wouldn't do this if they didn't find the wearer attractive.

But I couldn't see where the research said that women would follow up on making a sexual advance to another 'sexy woman'? If you go through an art exhibition there are always women staring in front of beautiful depictions of the female form. They would need to be blind were they not aware of its beauty. Perhaps the sexual response is perfectly normal and its just what we follow up on that counts.

I've never been into labels upon sexuality, and I always assumed everyone has some homosexual drives deep down.

But I haven't been able to reach mine, despite being totally open minded. I've tried to experiment when younger, nothing. My husband has expressed that he would like seeing me with a woman and I just don't get aroused.

At this point, with social mores encouraging it, and studies like this, I am feeling an uncomfortable pressure telling me I am dysfunctional freak because I only get aroused by men.

-And I am sure some will still say in response- you just have to let go of your conditioned blocks! It's natural for you, and you just need to let it go! Frustrating as heck.

You got me thinking, I wonder if the advent of pornography has affected this at all. Considering the female form is usually central to porn, to think it would perhaps become ingrained/associated in your mind with sex and arousal maybe isn't too far fetched?

I very much suspect there is a link but whether it was included in this study, which may have been funded by advertisers is something else.

All studies usually set out to make certain findings often pre-dictated by the client funding them.

Essentially, if people are naked and in a sensual situation, women get aroused (according to the study)

Isn't this the point? It's not the gender of the person that is arousing, but the sexual activity itself. Isn't the same true of men?

I could still be aroused by a couple I don't find attractive, due to the nature of the, uh, interaction. Aren't we wired this way? Endorphins and such? Does it mean I'm gay?

I see the study to be more indicative of overall sexualisation rather than gender specific taste.

Well, what they're saying is that even with women who claim just what you claimed -- these women had physical reactions to same-sex stimuli. This is subconscious, something they're not aware of.

So, really, what this is saying is that (and given that men think about sex every @9 seconds) they may be being turned on by a number of random objects, but are not aware of this, but it emerges as a thought about sex every @9 seconds...I call bogus...I obviously don't believe the 'study' into women either...

I really think this whole thing is way more complicated than measuring a person's response when viewing pornography of certain things. It's also incredibly simple. Who cares if you're happy?

This may be a bit much, and my dear mods and members (ha) forgive me if this is too blue, but I just recalled a conversation I had with a buddy of mine. We were bored AF sitting in a car at 4 AM trying to break into a big store (making sure the night crew were following security protocol) and musing about things. Conversation went to a lesbian co-worker and I said I just didn't find her attractive, even though I thought she was beautiful. Her being a lesbian just ruined it for me. Buddy goes "Yeah, it's like when I'm watching porn, there needs to be a (euphemism for penis) or I just can't get into it!".

So of course I cracked up and gave him a hard time (shutup), but I knew exactly what he was trying to say.

I need to imagine myself in whatever I'm watching, so lesbian porn doesn't do it for me usually. I think women have a very different mindset when watching pornography. I think a ton of that is from societal influences, but also because for women sex is a different experience than it is for men, more intimate, and women seem to have an easier time being intimate with each other.

I think we should probably just not give a crap about any of this. If you find love, that's what's important. I don't care if you're gay, bisexual, straight or whatever concoction describes you, if you find love, I'm happy for you.

I'm a straight white male, and completely in love with a straight white female. I truly hope everyone finds that, and I don't care what you are as long as you're happy.

It's time we eschew these labels and focus on ourselves and what feels right. I don't care if a study proves I'm somehow partly bisexual, I love who I love, and go F yourself if you take issue.

They definitely didn't include my wife in this study. That is some serious BS.

I've been trying to tell my wife this for 8 years now, she just keeps calling me a pig.

I don't mind lesbian porn when we're in the mood for naughty viewing, but frankly, I'd rather watch the guys go at it.

< looks around room >

What? Lesbian porn's just not that interesting or sexy < shrug >

3. I'm not overly shocked by this study. As a gender, women are overwhelmingly sexualized/sensualized by both women and men. The market for 'self beauty' is nearly exclusively a female market. Cosmetics, clothing, undergarments, jewelry, hair, footwear, etc - these markets are dominated by the female consumer to enhance their value as an individual. (80% of consumer spending is by females). Beer and burgers are sold with cleavage to men. Women sell to women and women sell to men. Either way; in advertising, women have what we want.

This is all very bonobo and I would be very interested in the demographics examined and how weighted that was with prefilter questioning. Otherwise being aroused watching others have sex, or listening even for that matter, the auditory factor of arousal is hugely under rated in my opinion, is not the same as wanting to join in, though I am sure it could be. Sex is sexy, what a shocker!

In terms of advertising, I don't think I do have what I want in that respect...although the chocolate end of things does seem to have me down and pegged. Much depends on what you want, I suppose, and whether you want to be a bonobo. I can understand some people letting their genitals make their choices in sex partners, fair play to 'em, but I think we should aim higher in our decision making, shopping choices included.

Gave me a giggle, so star and flag.

I don't go with this.

However, in nature all human children (who are breast fed) have that deep seated unconscious thing going on relating breasts to comfort, security and all. It must be so deep in us on a primal level so that is going to have a psychological effect.

Me ex wife was bisexual. The other long term partner I had was totally not into that. She thought it was a perversion of nature.

I question the whole spectrum and meanings people attach to gender, sexual preference, etc. For example, when I was younger I thought I might be gay. It carried on for a few years then suddenly I was totally straight and have been that way since. I am 100 % woman focussed sexually yet I had that strange time when I was younger. People forget we can change throughout our lives. Our sexuality is not necessarily set in stone from the word go.

Not enough female members have participated in this thread, a shame. I'm sure all the men are such experts and can speak on behalf of women (sarcasm mode). Man, some of you are way too opinionated and think you know when you are not even female.

Clicking through the's only in the sodding Daily Mail and it's the University of Essex that did the study!

If I was to read the Mail, and believe what it says, and what I am led to believe is said about the orange skinned, shoe-loving, looseness of Essex women anecdotally, and as a generalisation, in the MSM...I think we can assume that this female ambi-sexuality is a localised issue and not of concern to women elsewhere.

Thank heavens, I was starting to worry that I wasn't normal.

Too funny.

I'm intrigued as to who funded the study.
