Pornhub recently released data on the top porn searches broken down by gender. The survey found “gay male porn” as the second highest searched topic by straight women. This begs the question: What about straight dudes? How many of them are also looking at man-on-man porn? And what might be their motivations for doing so?
Being the curious gays that we are, we decided to dig a little deeper, scouring the internet for clues. And what we discovered is, well, surprising. Apparently it’s not just the ladies who prefer two dicks in their porn. Self-professed straight men enjoy it, too.
We recently reported on the growing number of heterosexual men who have begun openly embracing booty eating, both as givers and receivers. Anilingus is a behavior that has, historically, been attributed to gay men. So where did these straight guys get the idea to have their own butts eaten? And where did they learn the skills and strategies involved in performing a rim job? The obvious answer: Gay porn.
In our research, we learned that straight men don’t just watch gay porn for sex tips. They also watch it to get off. Now, we weren’t born yesterday. Anyone can say they’re heterosexual, and plenty of gay guys on our favorite hookup sites pretend to “Str8” and “just looking for a quickie while the GF is outta town.” But hold your preconceived notions for just one moment. Isn’t it possible there are more gray areas in human sexuality than anyone really knows, or is at least willing to admit? And isn’t looking at porn in the privacy of one’s own home the safest place to explore one’s curiosities?
So stay with us here as we take a peek at what guys are saying online…
In a forum titled “straight…but wack off to gay porn, anyone else ;)” on the totally reliable internet discussion website Topix, heterosexual “Mikey” from Trenton, NJ confesses:
so i have a gf of almost 3 years and recently started to jack off to gay porn, i dont know wht it is about it but it kinda turns me on, i was just wondering if anybody else is in the same boat as me. would love to hear from you!!
“Whoknew” from Georgiana, AL responds:
Well mikey, i have to go with you on this one. I would never want to engage in gay sex, but watching it somehow makes me hard as a rock. I have only watched a movie once, but I read stories on the net some. Matter of fact i am hard now just thinking about it.
A similar forum exists on the website Jackinworld, which claims to be the world’s “ultimate male masturbation resource.” On it, one commenter writes:
I’m straight, but i do watch gay porn and guys masturbating. I thought that was weird until i looked at the other reviews. Good to know a lot of guys do that.
Thank goodness i am not the only one. Im Straight but watch gay porn. I love girls, but gay just turns me on from time to time.
Then there’s this little gem:
im str8 but ive masturbated with my friends and one time one of my friends and i started oral, then it lead to anal. ive wanted to try again because it felt so good but im afraid to bring it up again. so i masturbate and think about it insted.
Hold up. Did a man who identifies as heterosexual just admit to engaging in x-rated behavior with his straight male friends? Maybe there is a god after all.
Thanks to a reader tip, we looked up heterosexual men who say they’ve either experimented with or thought about experimenting with other guys.
In another Topix forum titled “Is it normal I fantasize about sucking cock (I’m a guy)”, JJ22X from Glasgow makes a shocking disclosure:
I don’t know why. I consider myself straight, I’ve always been attracted to women, I’ve had sex with women and it’s all good … But when I’m horny I sometimes have this fantasy of while laying down on my back and having a gorgeous girl ride my dick, a man to stand over me with his big cock and I can really imagine myself saying give it to me. Being pinned down and sucking away I wouldn’t be able to say no. Even writing this I have a hard on lol.
The poetry continues:
Not just that, I wonder what it would be like to be fucked, just to have a big warm penis sliding inside of me taking advantage of me, sometimes I even picture myself jerking off slowly with a sexy girl to the left, and having a guy with a juicy cock to the right, and having to choose which one I want.
But JJ22X isn’t the only one who seems to feel this way. The thread has more than 1,200 responses from other allegedly heterosexual men claiming they, too, grapple with the desire to suck on a big warm wiener.
Collegeguy from Dublin admits:
Im not attracted to guys but get really horny thinking about giving a guy a bj…would like to try it to a friend sometime to be honest
Logan from Cardiff says:
to be honest ive giving head lots now and i know im not bi or gay i love girls but love sucking big cock
JJp from Toronto chimes in:
im straight but my biggest fantasy is trying that. i have never done this – too scared but if discreet i want to try with proper guidance
JJp, if you’re reading, here’s a little guidance for you: Just put it in your mouth.
Countless other forums in which allegedly straight men share their deepest, darkest gay fantasies exist all over the internet — like “I Am Straight But Secretly Want To Suck A Man’s Penis”, or “Straight Men That Have Experienced Giving Head — Any Regrets? I’m Thinking Of Trying It.” (We’ve got to hand it to these guys for being so straight-forwarded (pun intended!) with their subject lines.)
Of course, we don’t doubt for a second that many, if not most, of these so-called heterosexuals are really just horny gay teenagers in the Midwest who are up way past their bedtimes hoping to get their rocks off by posing as bi-curious men in internet chat rooms. But this article by Chris Rockwell called “Head Case: A straight mans’ [sic] penchant for the male organ,” published on the blog Nerve seems pretty legit, despite the glaring grammatical error in the essay’s title.
Rockwell establishes right off that bat that he identifies as straight. Or at least “not gay.”
“Let’s establish something up front,” he begins. “I’m not gay.”
But, he admits, “the only thing that mars my practically unblemished record as a straight man is my undeniable — at times, overwhelming — desire to suck a cock.”
He then spends the next 12 paragraphs rambling about his lifelong obsession with the idea of performing fellatio on another male.
“Occasionally I’ll fantasize about watching straight porn with a guy before jerking off together and emulating the acts on the screen,” he writes. “Or lining up a varsity swim team and making like a circus seal. Put simply, I think penises are awesome.”
Rockwell concludes the essay by saying he’s not bisexual. Having sex with both men and women, he feels, would be too “exhausting.”
“I just want to try deep-throating,” he writes. “Consider me try-sexual.”
So there you have it, folks. Direct from the hetero guy’s mouth. Straight guys might be more bisexual than you think.
The trick now is getting them off the internet and into our bedrooms.
