In the study, bisexual men reported being sexually aroused by erotic videos of both men and women. But a device attached to their genitals told another story. Michael Bailey, PhD. That conclusion doesn't fit with the experience of San Francisco psychologist Geri Weitzman, PhD, who runs a Web site listing bisexual-friendly professional services.
There are so many men who say — and demonstrate — that they love men and love women and are happy with it. Rieger and Bailey are looking in the wrong place for men's sexual identities, says Sheeri Kritzer, a Bisexual Resource Center board member.
Identity, she says, comes from above the ears, not below the belt. It goes on the old stereotype that men think with their [penises]. Bailey's sexuality research tends to draw fire. His book on transsexual men, "The Man Who Would Be Queen," is still under attack from some in the transgendered community. Last year, Bailey, Rieger, and Looking for bi guy guys published a study in which they measured female sexual arousal.
They concluded that women — whether they identify themselves as homosexual or heterosexual — have bisexual arousal patterns. That's because the genitals of women participating in the study became aroused when they watched porn, regardless of whether it featured men or women. Men, they say, are different. The current study, reported in the current issue of Psychological Science, enrolled 30 heterosexual men, 33 bisexual men, and 38 homosexual men.
Nine of the heterosexual men, 11 of the bisexual men, and 13 of the homosexual men did not become genitally aroused by the videos and were dropped from the final analysis. The men viewed an minute nonsexual film, followed by several two-minute sexual films and another neutral film. The sex films depicted either men having sex with men or women having sex with women. The men indicated how aroused they felt by moving a lever up or back.
Their genital arousal was measured by an elastic device attached to their penises. So did their genital measurements. Bisexual men said they were turned on by both sets of videos — but their genitals responded to one or the other, not to both. This study fits the picture that They have an object of their sexual desire and go for that. The pattern is that they have this object specificity — it does not change.
To make these conclusions on so few people, that is not good science. Unfortunately, this has gotten much more media play than it deserves. If you torture the data, they will confess to anything. It does not mean there are no bisexual men.
She points to the large of men who were not genitally aroused during the study. Yet they said that when bisexual men did not respond to all of the videos, it meant they were gay or straight. None of the study's flaws is fatal, says Rodriguez Rust. The problem is with Kritzer and Bailey's interpretation.
A of study subjects clearly did respond to both males and females. The study's conclusion — that it remains to be demonstrated that men have a bisexual response — is curious, because it is not supported by the findings. Behavior is what you do.
And attraction is what I consider your true sexual feelings for your own sex or for a member of the opposite sex. Rieger says that for most homosexual and heterosexual men, these three aspects of sexuality are the same. That's not the case for men who say they are bisexual — even if they have sex with both men and women. Whether homosexual or straight, they show bisexual arousal. It does not seem to be related to what they really are interested in. This is very different from what we find in guys.
Weitzman says Bailey and Rieger oversimplify the many elements that determine a person's sexual orientation. She points to the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid, a tool that some psychologists use to determine a person's sexual orientation. Many factors go into this determination: attraction, behavior, fantasies, emotional preference, social preference, lifestyle, and self-identification. This is creating an environment where it isn't even safe to come out in the gay community.
But I say when a person who is gay or straight, and finds another person and has a loving relationship, we should be glad, whatever sex that other person may be. Since it's clear that both men and women have sex with both men and women, Rodriguez Rust wonders why so Looking for bi guy guys people find it hard to believe in bisexuality.
