OK, I was just in the galleries section and say this photoshoot of this hot guy:
and he was taking it up the ass but I wasn't surprised to see that he was still sold as a straight guy, which may or may not be true I guess..
but the point I wanted to make is that nowadays it seems like 75% of any gay porn involves straight men. Someone once pointed out on this forum that this sends a very bad message and influence because they become so infatuated with straight guys, or the thought of being with one that they lose interest in other gay men. It becomes an unhealthy, unrealistic obsession and can especially have psychologic effects on anyone who is not out of the closet or having problems dealing with their sexuality.
It's gotten kind of ridiculous because it seems like a gay porn company will throw the straight label on every model they can regardless of it's true and it will probably sell more.
This is directly from the seancody website:
We normally cast guys who are between the ages of 18 and 40. We like uninhibited, easy-going guys who love sex. We don't limit models to one particular type, so race, body hair, sexual orientation, dick size and the like are not important. However, you must be in good shape and muscular, toned, or lean builds are definitely a plus. Most of our models are straight, but we also love working with gay men who can show the straight boys how it's done!
I know this is just porn but to some it means that they can have sex with men and STILL be straight. This becomes a big problem because there are lots of guys out there who have problems with accepting their sexuality and when they see this they tend to believe it's true. I knew two guys like this. One of them had been with over 10 guys and he still considered himself straight. The other one had a girlfriend and was cheating on her with guys on the regular and he didn't consider himself anything other than straight. Guys like this will watch the porn and it will reassure them that they are straight themselves.
I have even heard some gays say they will NOT date any man who is gay or bi. This dude over here I found on youtube made a video about this.
embedding is disabled so you have to go directly to the video... anyway that guy is a dumbass
back to the subject, this poses other questions:
- Do lesbians have this strong of an obsession towards straight women?
- Have you ever heard of straight women who try to hook up with gay men the way gay guys try to with straight guys?
- When exactly did this phenomenom begin? I remember going on some gay porn a few years ago when I first became curious about it and I never seen it everywhere like I do now.
- Do you think this is true and do you think shoving straight men down our throats (no pun intended) has a negative impact on gay society?
One time someone from this forum posted a link to a blog someone wrote on this topic. It was very interesting but I don't remember it.
