Skip to comments.Homophobic Men are Aroused by Gay Male Porn (Barf alert) Dated 2011

Even a man who thought that women want to have sex with their fathers, and that women spend much of their lives distraught over their lack of a penis, is right sometimes. This person, the legend that is Sigmund Freud, theorized that people often have the most hateful and negative attitudes towards things they secretly crave, but feel that they shouldn't have.
If Freud is right, then perhaps men who are the most opposed to male homosexuality have particularly strong homosexual urges for other men.
One study asked heterosexal men how comfortable and anxious they are around gay men. Based on these scores, they then divided these men into two groups: men that are homophobic, and men who are not. These men were then shown three, four-minute videos. One video depicted straight sex, one depicted lesbian sex and one depicted gay male sex. While this was happening, a device was attached to each participant's penis. This device has been found to be triggered by sexual arousal, but not other types of arousal (such as nervousness, or fear - arousal often has a very different meaning in psychology than in popular usage).
When viewing lesbian sex and straight sex, both the homophobic and the non-homophobic men showed increased penis circumference. For gay male sex, however, only the homophobic men showed heightened penis arousal.
Heterosexual men with the most anti-gay attitudes, when asked, reported not being sexually aroused by gay male sex videos. But, their penises reported otherwise.
Heterosexual men who reported having the most anti-gay male attitudes were more aroused by gay male pornography than heterosexual men who had pro-gay male attitudes.
What this means is that some hostility towards gay men from other men could be down to some men who have homosexual attraction forming particularly negative views in reaction to not accepting their own sexuality.
What this doesn't mean - as I have seen others write- is that homosexuality is caused by anti-gay attitudes, or even increased by it (the study cannot even test this, as homophobia was not manipulated across conditions. It was not a study design that can test causality). The point is that these men already have this arousal naturally, but that they block it because they do not see it as socially acceptable. So they form extra strong anti-gay attitudes as a means of appearing heterosexual to others, and perhaps trying to convince themselves they are entirely heterosexual. There are, of course, loads of gay men who are secure in their sexuality, so it clearly can exist without anti-gay attitudes.
It also doesn't mean that heterosexual men who are homophobic are the most aroused by gay male pornography across all groups of people of all sexual orientations and all levels of homophobia. That is not a valid conclusion to reach based on this study; there were not even any homosexual people in the study so we have no way of comparing their arousal with the homophobic heterosexual men in the study who were aroused by the gay male pornography.
(in an earlier draft when I said homophobic heterosexual men were the most aroused, that was in comparison to the men who were not homophobic going into the study. They were the most out of the group tested - heterosexual men)
why bother reading vomit?
Do you have something to tell us?
Even if I am homophobic, so what? I’d much rather live in a homophobic society than a homoerotic one. It’s one or the other. There’s no third option.
But let ONE critic let out a single peep and all they can do is scream:
"You object cuz YOU'RE ONE, TOO..!!!:
Freud was not right.
I know what i like, and what disgusts me. I do not ever confuse the two.
I want to see a study where homosexuals are “aroused” (in this case meaning convicted) reading the verses that deal with their sin in the Bible.
Read the headline. First off is what is this crap about phobic meaning to be afraid of. I do not live in fear of homos to me they are sick in the head. Secondly seeing two of them even walking down the road makes me sick so this crap about being aroused is pure utter B/S
Well I would like to know how exactly they determine who or who isn’t “homophobic”. Like is a person who happens to have the opinion that marriage is between a man and a woman a suitable candidate?
why even post this pro turd poking crap/
Sigmund Freud was a cocaine addict who smoked 20 cigars a day.
How would I know?
This stuff is so repugnant to me, that I would never watch it.
Dream on poofters.
Why post this crap here?
Reminds me of the Deathrow Gameshow but without the electrocution.
Maybe it’s their way of seeing a horror picture now and then. Phobics are scared, by definition; some people like to go to scary movies.
UH NO. Our mental sciences today have become a joke.
Did the gay movies have effeminate men in it? Were there ugly women in the movies?How did they measure what homphobia is and at what level? Was the enlargement of circumference statistically significant? Was there a control group? Did they include spontaneous tumescence?
The study has too many holes...and sucks....Oooops
Never seen “nauseated” auto-corrected to “aroused” before.
Freud was the Elron Hubbard of his day.
