Straight men watch gay porn. What is the reason?

As we previously reported, the study from Youporn has shown that almost one in four straight men and two in five straight women watch X-rated films about same-sex relationships. The experts from Radio 1 were interested why it happens and they have revealed some possible grounds of love to gay porn that comes from heterosexual watchers. So, one of such a reasons is a riot against gender stereotypes. A straight man who is under pressure concerning masculinity and ‘the real man must’, watches gay porn to show himself that he overcomes stereotypes, because it is exactly what a stereotypical ‘real man’ must NOT do.

Another reason is valuating themselves. Men look at other men to see their body shape and sexual abilities to compare themselves with the men they see and to make conclusion on whether they could be considered sexually attractive. And once again, stereotypical masculinity works here. If the man does not fit ‘traditional’ standards, he looks at ‘non-traditional’ ones hoping to fit them.

And the third reason is a banal curiosity. The man may be straight-identifying, but as another study has proven, there are no people who would be 100% heterosexual. Whether we admit it or not, we are all sexually fluid, so we may at least ask ourselves ‘What if I try it with a person of my sex?”. And we do ask ourselves about it from time to time, even without realizing it. So men watch gay porn to answer themselves whether other men could make them feel sexually excited, whether they want such an experiment.
