FTA: "Researchers asked about 300 study participants to watch 30-second videos of people of both sexes masturbating, and tracked the dilation of participants' pupils in response."

There needs to be more studies like this one.

Less talky. More pictures of what bisexual women may or may not look like.

Hell, there's one in the sidebar.

A legitimate use for the Voight-Kampff test....

Your in a desert, and you see a little man in a boat, you decide to flick this man, he's there laying in his boat, soaking wet...


I'd shoot you under the table for "your".

Wait... studying pupil dilation while making them watch video?

Did they graph that against the relative light level coming off the screen?

If the female scenes were filmed with even a slightly lower light level... say a different color room background or a slightly closer camera or something...

Fark is not your personal erotica site.

For your personal erotica site I'd suggest starting here. NSFW, extremely sexy.


I'm pretty sure this is factually incorrect.

I have always thought that girls that claim sex with women is absolutely gross or disgusting and they are 100% into guys were actually butch lesbians deep down, because, why are they so into guys?

bobbette: There is a big deal to be made about sexual preference if you have one that isn't the majority, because you are fewer in number and marked out as different. These things all have implications.


Oh, I grok. Not that I've had it that bad, but similar ostracization has been known to happen among, say, racially homogenous schools. The lone kid the wrong color gets it about as bad. Religion is, in my experience, not the modifier of human behavior it's made out to be. It's the opposite. Religion is what allows people to justify what they'd do otherwise. That why people convert, defect. . . they literally shop for religions. If one makes living too hard, they move to a different one.

So, it's really just that people are stupid assholes who never fail to have an excuse to be jerks to those they see as different. They don't oppose homosexuality because it's a sin; they oppose it because they think it's yucky so they'll pore over every damn line in the Old Testament to find that one phrase they can use as a weapon. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna look through scripture to find evidence that eating mushrooms is evil.

miss diminutive: Honestly, that's the first time I've ever heard of it although it really does make sense from the perspective you mentioned. I could definitely see that kind of physical response being a complete mindfark for those women who didn't know.


Some women have been known to become very promiscuous after a sexual assault. This has often been attributed to a simple crisis of self-worth, but -- and I admit I'm speculating here because data is sketchy to nonexistent -- I think if they had the "defensive arousal" response, becoming a slut is often the only way they can make sense of what happened. "I got horny while being raped, well this must be who I am, then."

It's one reason among many I have a seething hatred for organized religion and their crusade against knowledge. The ability to understand one's own body on an academic level makes a HUGE difference. Sexual assault shouldn't happen, but it does, and the more everyone knows about these sorts of things, the better. Again, my friend managed to survive her assault, well, psychologically damaged but in the long run she made it back to well-adjusted. If all a woman knows is "sex is evil and if you enjoy it you're a whore" herpa derp, the "defensive arousal" response isn't just a mindfark; it can outright break them. If I hear of a churchgoing woman getting raped the first thing I'd suggest is putting them on 24-hour suicide watch just in case.

It's been known for a whole that women have arousal responses to practically any sexual imagery. This is not the same thing as sexual orientation. So unfortunately, this is another case of totally crap sexuality science.

Let me give you an example of how arousal/choice of porn doesn't indicate orientation. A lot of lesbians like watching gay porn. This doesn't make lesbians gay men, or even bisexuals, which would imply significant attraction to 2+ genders over the long term.

I wish all women were bi since I'm actually bi. That would be awesome. But it's not the case.

How about the 10% of males that said they were straight who were dilating at only the men? Why wasn't that reported? I guess they want to keep their funding.

I wonder if the participants were aware that they would be watching people masturbating as part of the study.

I can just see some prudish type thinking they were signing up for a simple psychological study being shocked and appalled that they basically had to watch men and women touch themselves in naughty, naughty ways in the name of science.


That's a good question - were they aware of what they'd be watching? And their responses would have been interesting. Maybe the ones protesting the most (or squirming the most) would be the ones whose pupils dilate the most.

One Bad Apple: miss diminutive: Study researcher Ritch Savin-Williams, a psychology professor at Cornell, said women's less-distinct preference for men may be the result of a defense mechanism that evolved to protect women from forced sexual intercourse. If a woman can become aroused with any sort of sexual simulation, the lubrication that results can protect her from injuries.

Well isn't that a pleasant thought.

Is it pleasant enough to get you aroused ?
