Researchers from Cornell University claim that no-one is 100 per cent straight, and all of us get aroused by both men and women While you may think that you’re only attracted to a certain sex , this may not be the case, according to a new study.
Researchers from Cornell University claim that no-one is 100 per cent straight, and all of us get aroused by both men and women.
In the study, the researchers showed male and female participants porn involving men and women.
While they watched, the researchers measured how much their pupils dilated – a known indicator of sexual arousal.
Results revealed that women’s pupils dilated while watching men with women, as well as women with women.
Additionally, men’s eyes dilated while watching both women and men masturbate.
Speaking to Broadly , Ritch Savin-Williams, who led the study, said: “We show straight men a picture of a woman masturbating and they respond just like a straight guy, but then you also show them a guy masturbating and their eyes dilate a little bit.
“So we’re actually able to show physiologically that all guys are not either gay, straight, or bi.”
The researchers hope the findings will allow sexuality to be seen as a spectrum, rather than categorising people.
Dr Savin-Williams added: “I do see this loosening of the boundaries.
“I think that’s happening for both sexes. It’s probably a good thing, because it gives kids growing up more diversity, more options, so they don’t feel like they have to fit in [at all costs].
“Straight women and straight men feel much more comfortable than ever before in going into the realm of the other sex in terms of gender role and how they act.”
