Homophobic Men Most Aroused by Gay Male Porn

Because guys who you might think of as "homophobic" yet go sign up to watch male porn, are a great indicator of all guys who aren't cool with teh buttsex. Yeah, I could sign up for a study in which I have to watch animals being thrown into combines, but even though I've never seen any such thing, I'll still avoid that shiat at all costs.. now people who secretly enjoy torturing animals on the other hand, they'll probably sign up.

that is a good point, its a selective study at best.

Does anyone have a copy of the full paper (I can just find the abstract)?

Found this.

Caucasian heterosexual male volunteers (n = 64) recruited from the Psychology Department Research Subject Pool at the University of Georgia participated in the study. They were screened during large group testing during which time they completed the modified version of the Kinsey Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale (Kinsey, Pomeroy, & Martin, 1948), the Index of Homophobia (IHP; Hudson & Ricketts, 1980), and the Aggression Questionnaire (Buss & Perry, 1992). They were contacted by telephone at a later date to schedule the laboratory portion of the study. All participants received partial course credit. The mean age of the men was 20.3 years ( range = 18 to 31 years).

Screening Measures
Kinsey Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale. A modified version of the Kinsey Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale was used to assess sexual arousal and prior sexual experiences. This version of the Kinsey is a 7-point scale on which individuals separately rated their sexual arousal and experiences from exclusively homosexual to exclusively heterosexual. Only participants who reported exclusively heterosexual arousal and experiences (i.e., ls on both sections) were selected for participation.

IHP. The IHP is the most widely used measure of homophobia (O'Donahue & Caselles, 1993 ). The items of the IHP assess affective components of homophobia. The scale contains 25 items, and scores range from 0 to 100. Respondents were divided into four groups on the basis of their score: 0-25, high-grade nonhomophobic men; 26-50, low-grade nonhomophobic men; 51-75, low-grade homophobic men; and 76-100, high-grade homophobic men. The score obtained is a measure of "dread" an individual experiences when placed in close quarters with a homosexual; a low score equals low dread, and a high score equals high dread. Because most of the items contain the terms comfortable or uncomfortable, dread can be assumed to mean anticipatory anxiety about interacting with a homosexual person. For example, one item states "I would feel nervous being in a group of homosexuals." Positive and negative statements are used to control for response set biases. The authors reported .90 reliability coetficient on a sample of 300 respondents. O'Donahu¢ and Caselles ( 1993, p. 187 ) commented that the authors of the IHP used a "more empirical and psychometrically sophisticated approach than previous researchers who have produced instruments to measure homophobia."

The men were divided into two groups on the basis of their scores on the IHP: 0-50 = nonhomophobic men, n = 29, M = 30.48, SD = 14.70; 51-100 = homophobic men, n = 35, M = 80.40, SD = 13.2. This split was necessary because of an inability to find an adequate number of exclusively heterosexual men who scored in the high-grade nonhomophobic range (0-25).

Homophobic Men Most Aroused by Gay Male Porn

I bet Gay Men are Most Aroused by Gay Porn.

Gay men are aroused by homophobic men getting aroused by gay porn.

The Dog Ate My Homework: I will never, ever understand why any straight man would hate gay men. IT JUST MEANS LESS COMPETITION FOR YOU, YOU FARKING IDIOTS! Clearly, the moral angle doesn't work on people like this at all. But just based on pure self interest, doesn't it make more sense for straight men to actually appreciate the existence of gay men? Frankly, my idea of a perfect world is one in which all women are straight and all men are gay with the exception of myself.

I agree. But for different reasons.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: Diogenes: This is the what men who are secure in their sexuality sound like.

I don't subscribe to the idea that all men who hate gays are secretly gay themselves, though I think that's sometimes a factor. But I do think that men who are secure in their sexuality really don't give a shiat about the sexuality of others.


I used to hang out at a gay bar because it was 3 blocks from my home, comfy, had a split adult classy section and jukebox/pool section, and was the only damn place in town that could make a decent Irish Coffee or Old Fashioned. Plus locally owned and the owners did a lot for local charities, lgbt focused and others. And had free safe sex stuff at the front door that helped many of my straight and gay broke friends get laid safely.

Sometimes I got hit on, politely demurred, and bought them a drink. Same as my other favorite bar (BF lived 2 hours away for awhile)... well, I just bought the ladies drinks cause I was on their turf.

So coworkers and I decide to get drinks. 5 of us, I suggest gay bar. 2 folks who had been there with me agree immediately. 1 guy agrees after being reassured that it's not a club atmosphere.

Last guy - apparently straight, hardcore liberal - flipped the f--k out and refused to go, sputtering some nonsense as we all just gave each other WTF stares.

We all had suspicions before that but oh did that clinch it.

If you're so damn insecure you can't say thanks but no thanks *if* someone hits on you holy crap. Take out that goddamn plank in your eye already.

What he was really afraid of happening when he went in:
