Study Finds Homophobic Men Most Sexually Aroused By Gay Porn; In Denial

homophobia is gay, homophobic men secretly gay, homophobic men are gay, A new study confirms what we suspected all along – the bigger the homophobe, the stronger the homosexual urges.

Men who aren’t attracted to other men aren’t threatened or made uncomfortable by sex between two men. Comfortable and secure in their sexuality, they simply aren’t aroused by gay sex. Men who protest “no homo” were found to be most aroused by gay porn over straight and lesbian porn, and in complete denial about it.

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 heterosexual 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.

Homophobic men were the most sexually aroused by gay male sex acts.

Perhaps some homophobia immersion therapy is in order?

Thanks, Science!

    Awesome to bring attention to this study!  However, just wanted to let you know that the study referenced is not ‘new’, but is actually from 1996 and has made its way into psychology’s canonical texts.  We’ve confirmed homophobic guy’s internal homosexuality for quite a while now! 😀

  • Maybe this explains all the flaming anti-gay senators and ministers who get caught with their pants down…

  • the whole part in grey is from psychology today, as is stated under the article. maybe it would be nice to pay attention for example.

  • I posted a reply to him too before noticing that you said where it was found.  I hate when people fail to read the whole post before they start flaming.

    It’d be nice if you would incorporate journalistic ethics into this story – like citing your sources for example.

  • Duh, we didnt need science to know that one!!! That has been obvious to everyone for years they just have the Facts Now!!! The Nutz!

  • William N. Cate III

    Journalistic ethics?
    I wouldn’t expect much of that if I were you, Jarrett.
    Not from Unicorn Booty.

    Way to read, smart guys.

    Umm not to point out the obvious but on the bottom of the article just above the links to other articles it says this was posted via Psycology Today which is a link to the original article….
    Like most Articles on unicorn booty some are sourced from other websites and UB just adds their touch in which it uses textboxes to show the extract from the articles/sources and most of the rest is usually theirs..

    This article from Psychology Today is fairly recent, but the study they’re citing is indeed from 1996. This isn’t *news,* bootyboys.

    maybe its true maybe it isn’t ….that homophobics are really gays unrevealed.everyone is attracted to one or both sexes.the opposite sex  or to the same sex.i think its individually acceptance that makes one say publically which one chooses ,Each person accepts what he/she chooses.but we shouldnt judge an individuals preferance.There are other reasons for  peoples views, I have religeous views ,and those are different from someone elses.It’s all a matter of choices,Some publically say what they choose and some choose privately and dont want others to know their  preferances ,Being gay for me is not a choice i choose not to be gay.See i made a choice and i stated it publically.

  • Really, you “chose” not to be gay? Right… What you “chose” to post makes you look naive and small minded.

  • Truckstops, airport toilets and frat houses have been hot pick-up spots for homophobic closeted gayboys for years…. all this time they could have just gone to a nice ambiant lounge for a good cocktail to get a date.

    They’re simply afraid of their own curiosity because society has taught them that it’s wrong and sinful.  If they would just calm down and engage their curiosity with a trusted friend and get it out of the way, they wouldn’t be so preoccupied with IT or what gay men are doing behind closed doors.

  • boomzy

    Well this would be an interesting study to have been a part of. lol. Okay, we are going to watch some porn and measure how turned on you get.

    LMAO! I knew it!
