TRUE CONFESSIONS

Hetero Guys Open Up About Their Gay Porn Fetishes With Each Other

Young man is sitting in bed and watching pornography on laptopIt all started when a user by the name of “father_figa” posted this question on a Reddit AMA thread:

Do any straight guys watch gay porn as a fetish rather than an aspect of your sexual orientation?

Followed by this confession:

It is my guess that a lot of straight guys consume gay porn. It is also my guess that the stigma of doing so is far less than it used to be. Many people today consider transsexual porn to be primarily of interest to straight males. I view it all but do not consider myself gay. I have a very high sex drive and perhaps a smattering of sexual addictions. I am happy with myself and my gf is fully aware of this. So, guys, tell me if i’m the only one.

As it turns out, he’s not the only one.

The post received almost 75 comments from allegedly straight dudes the world over talking about their interests in man-on-man porn, and offering a fascinating peek into the private masturbatory practices of heterosexual males.

“Sure do man,” one commenter said. “Not gay, no real intention to do a dude. But holy crap man, a man giving a blow job is so awesome, they just know what theyre doing.”

“Fuck it,” another person added. “I’ll be the one dude to be honest, yeah I watch some gay porn. I find they are less fake about it most times, a lot less fake moaning and such.”

“I watch gay porn because my dick tells me that’s what I want to be watching,” a third guy wrote. “I’m not gay, I just sometimes get this urge that says ‘watch a man rail another dude in the ass.’ “

(We can relate. We sometimes get that urge, too.)

A few guys got even more specific about why they prefer watching two dudes go at it as opposed to a guy and a girl.

“I like the violence in some gay porn,” one gentleman said.

“I don’t like watching sloppy, gaggy blow jobs and on the whole gay porn has much cleaner bjs at least from what I’ve seen,” another one confessed. “I generally watch college vids, hazing type deals, straight for pay, nothing with kissing/caressing.”

“I don’t watch stuff with ‘masculine’ guys,” a third guy wrote. “I only watch twinks.”

Of course, not all straight guys said they enjoyed gay porn. Plenty admitted that the whole M4M thing just wasn’t for them.

“Nope, doesn’t interest me at all,” one guy said. “Honestly I have a difficult time with a lot of normal porn if there’s too much guy in it.”

(We can only assume by “normal” he meant “straight.”)

“I can’t maintain an erection when two gay dudes show up on the screen,” a second guy wrote.

“I certainly don’t seek it out because it doesn’t really do anything for me,” a third guy added, “but I’m not disgusted by it or anything. If it’s working for you, go for it.”

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Reddit thread without a few pieces of unsolicited advice. There was this helpful tidbit of wisdom:

“If you’re watching gay porn to get off you’re probably at least little tiny bit gay. Nothing wrong with that.”

And also this:

“I don’t watch porn at all, so I cannot answer your question.”

So what’s the takeaway from all this?

Well, as we previously predicted, straight men are a lot more bisexual than even they might know. The fact that their starting to open up about their gay porn fetishes, even if only on an anonymous Reddit thread, is a mark of progress. Hetero guys seem to be growing more comfortable with talking about previously taboo subjects like gay sex.

“I do believe it is possible to have an interest or even attraction to homosexuality but not be homosexual,” father_figa ultimately concluded on the thread. “That is what I was trying to find via the conversation.”
