Straight , Gay or Lying?

A new study of
sexual arousal suggests that men are sexually aroused by either females
or males, but not by both. The study differs from a study of women
published last November by the same team researchers which found that
most women who said they were bisexual showed arousal to both men and
to women.

According to the New York Times article:"The researchers asked the men about their sexual desires
and rated them on a scale from 0 to 6 on sexual orientation, with 0 to
1 indicating
heterosexuality, and 5 to 6 indicating homosexuality. Bisexuality was
measured by scores in the middle range.

"Seated alone in a laboratory room, the men then watched a
series of erotic movies, some involving only women, others involving
only men.
Using a sensor to monitor sexual arousal, the researchers found what
they
expected: gay men showed arousal to images of men and little arousal to
images of women, and heterosexual men showed arousal to women but not
to
men.

"But the men in the study who described themselves as bisexual did not have
patterns of arousal that were consistent with their stated attraction to men
and to women. Instead, about three-quarters of the group had arousal
patterns identical to those of gay men; the rest were indistinguishable from
heterosexuals
."
