STUDY: 60% Of College Women Want A Lesbian Makeout Session

Today in questionable studies: after evaluating 484 college students with a range of sexual orientations, researchers from Boise State University in Idaho found that 60 percent of college-age women felt “some level of attraction toward other women.” So does that mean that a majority of women wouldn’t mind kissing another woman, or…?

A professor behind the study Elizabeth Morgan said that the findings could reflect an emotional intimacy in women’s relationships that sometimes tips over into romantic feelings. And while the study also suggests that women might experience same-sex attraction in greater numbers than originally thought, 484 Idaho college students don’t exactly provide a representative sample of anything really.

The same study found that 21 percent of college-age men fantasize about men, 19 percent have kissed another man, and 15 percent have at least some sexual attraction to men.

It could be that college students are more open to exploring their sexual feelings than their non-collegiate counterparts or that campus life in Boise is so boring that homosexual experimentation seems a good way to pass the time.

In another study of 1,277 heterosexually identified college students, only 26 percent of women and 12 percent of men reported same-sex attraction. Curiously, in the same study, 37 percent of women and 15 percent of men reported having had a sexual encounter with someone of the same gender.

That means that 11 percent of the women and 3 percent of the men had a same-sex encounter without feeling any attraction to their same-sex partner. Those of us who have had slept with a member of the opposite sex in an attempt to straighten ourselves out can empathize.

    I think the thing that stands out is the double standard. It’s reflected in how our society treats female-female affecton versus male-male affection. Society encourages female-female affection but treats the male-male version in a disapproving way. I believe that women are to blame for this. Women are especially against male-male affection in the sense that they want the affection of men to be directed at them and them alone.

    Women are the geatest hypocrites and the biggest exploiters of double standards. At heart, women are opposed to male-male sexuality and sensuality.

    These studies, including the Boise one, simply reflect and possibly exaggerate the double standard. They are biased in favor of females and are quite anti-male at heart.

    @jason:

    Wow. Bitter against women much?

  • missanthrope

    NB4 misogynistic, paranoid rant by jason.

    …..oh wait late, damn.

    Michael,

    No, I’m not against women, I’m against the hypocrisy of women. Learn the difference – it might enlighten you.

    Women should not be given a pass simply because they’re women. I’ve noticed in recent times this form of pro-female political correctness which cedes to women the right to do anything they want regardless of the inequality it creates. It’s hugely concerning and should be upper-most in most gay and bi men’s minds.

    This PC attitude is helping to create a huge inequality in how male-male sexuality is treated compared to female-female sexuality. It’s creating a bias which is allowing women to mount the moral high ground for reasons that are based on a lie.

  • jason

    Of course, let’s not forget the number of women who claim to be interested in women for the express purpose of titillating sleazy straight guys. Girls, your vile little games are over.

  • ibarra

    jason, you’re still coming off bitter. try to decrease that noise so that the receivers can get your exact message.

  • jason

    I’m not bitter at all. I’m anti-female hypocrisy.

    As a society, we are allowing women to do things that create inequality for men. As I’ve said before, modern women are not interested in equality with men. What they want is privileges.

    The bisexual double standard is the perfect demonstration of this. Perfect, perfect, perfect. It exposes women for the frauds that they are.

  • BamBam

    jason, it was a survey. I doubt that the women engaged in a massive subterfuge by dressing in drag, taking the survey, intentionally arranging a double standard (because of course its a double standard for both parties to say what they want), and then publish the results in a tone neutral-to-positive of both genders’ bisexuality. You’re not anti-female hypocrisy; you’re anti-medicated.

  • jason

    Bam Bam,

    I’m not saying that women are conspiring in this sex survey. I’m simply saying that women give answers that they think they must give. They align with what they they think is the right answer.

    You only have to look at how females dress when they go to a nightclub and contrast it with the men. Women dress to a different level of modesty compared to the men. They are much less modest than the men. Don’t deny it, you know it’s true.

    This desire of women to align with male heterosexual fantasy is symptomatic of the fact that liberalism/feminism/porn have turned women into man-pleasing whores. Modern women are basically prostitutes.

    Keep in mind that research based on sexuality is not actually completely scientific. It’s not like measuring the performance of two different types of vehicles and comparing the two. It’s not like examining the effect of two different types of bacteria in a cell culture dish. Sex research is completely biased by the social influences which exist in society at a given time. As such, it is positively skewed towards producing results that reflect this.

    Don’t try to challenge me, honey. I’m well stocked with reasoned and reasonable arguments. If women don’t like what I say, tough. You’re being challenged like never before, frauds and all.

  • Enn

    Jason, if you look at female-female vs. male-male attraction historicaly you’ll find that homosexual attraction between men has been seen as more “dangerous” than homosexual attraction between women because women were seen as “sexualy passive”. In fact read Richard von Krafft-Ebing’s Psychopatia Sexualis if you want to see what I mean. (Yes I know Von Krafft’s stuff is mostly wrong but it does tell you about the oppinions of the time) You’ll find that it was mysogynist attitudes that spawed the idea that lesbianism is less negative.

  • Shannon1981

    Jason is a huge misogynist. He derails any threads about anything female related with the same bullshit. Every. Single. Time.

  • Shannon1981

    That being said, I made out and slept with many “lesbian till graduation” types in my time at the University of SC. It was fun, but unfortunately I fooled myself into believing that these otherwise straight women felt real affection for me. Thankfully, I am no longer so young and naive.

  • jason

    Enn,

    But the fact is that women ARE sexually passive. They are receptacles. It’s not misogynistic to say this. It’s an absolute fact of biology. If you don’t like what I’m saying, take it up with the Creator or whomever you deem to have invented women.

    Of course male-male sexuality is more feared than female-female sexuality. It’s because men are more feared than women. It’s as much a gender thing as it is a sexuality thing. You can’t divide male homosexuals out from the fact that they are men first and foremost. Even before they are homosexuals, men are men.

    My gripe is with women who fake their sexuality in order to titillate sleazy straight guys. This includes pretending to be bisexual in order to appear more appealing to these guys. I have no time for these women. The sooner they are exposed for the frauds that they are, the better.

    Honestly, these females are doing a huge amount of damage to the gay rights movement as a whole. Don’t cede to them in the name of pro-female political correctness. It would be like committing suicide.

  • Mark

    @jason: totally agree with Jason!

  • Mark

    Where is 60% of coolege men who want a gay makeout session?

  • Lee

    @jason: How can you possibly say that women are nothing but passive receptacles and still maintain you’re not a misogynist? you clearly don’t understand the term.

    And for the record, most modern intelligent women, gay or straight, are not against male-male sexuality. in my experience, it is more often the macho homophobic dude-culture men who push that attitude. and most of us women are just as off-put by katy perry style straight girl make-outs because it gives people the impression that female homosexuality isn’t real.

    Enn is completely right. If you knew anything about the history of sexuality, you would understand that it was a misogynistic view of women that lead to an apathy towards female sexuality. we didn’t matter because we weren’t really people. so if your goal is to perpetuate that, great job.

I’d dare to say that I’m even more offended by that behavior than you considering I’m the one who has to defend my person-hood and relationship when straight men try to grab my ass or degradingly offer to pay to see more while I politely kiss my wife or hold her hand.

  • jason

    Lee,

    Sorry, Lee, but you’re wrong. Misogyny is a flat-out hatred of women. What I’m about is a flat-out hatred of female hypocrisy and double standards. Learn to distinguish between the two notions – it might enlighten you.

  • missanthopre

    Jason just thinks that some human beings (males) are more human that other humans (women). He hates women and will celebrate anything that he could see as confirming that view as would any racist or homophobe would. He’s a sick, sorry, and sad individual, it’s sad that queerty doesn’t pull the bigoted, intellectual excrement that he posts all over these comments.

  • Enn

    Well…..

    Since Jason will listen to neither reason nor historic evidence, and since no one else has done it yet, I’m calling troll on this one and letting it go. No use feeding a troll, biggoted or otherwise.

  • Mark

    @Shannon1981: you are hypocritical bitch! You are misandrist. Of course, you as lesbian enjoy double standards!

  • Peter

    problem of homophobia is the problem of gay and bisexual guys. What`s the fuck this topic is doing here? All homophobe`s hate is against male homosexual behavior. I dont believe in solidarity GLBT. We have got completely different aims. Because of fake solidarity no one solves problems of gay men and bisexuals. What is for this article? Should we rejoice that at least lesbians are lucky? I am indifferent to them. Also, loyal attitude to a female homosexual behavior does not improve attitude to male homosexual behavior. Stop this nonsense

  • jason

    missanthrope,

    I think you might be jealous that I have insight into the fakeness of a lot of women’s behavior. Perhaps you want the sort of insight that I have.

  • Mark

    @missanthrope: shut up, misandrist!

  • Lil

    “professor” Elizabeth Morgan is full of sh*t!!

    there’s a study about Cambridge university students. they surveyed 546 freshers and the results are interesting: 7.9% of men and 3.7% of women said they were bisexual.while 8.9% of men and only 0.83% of women dentify themselves as gay…so Where are all the lesbians???!!

    http://cambridgetab.co.uk/news/28531

    another survey about Oxford students found that 54.2% of men said that they had had fantasied about gay sex! only 15.2% of women said they had had sex with a member of the same sex, compared with the 31% of men. So does this mean men are more likely to be bi/gay?!

    http://www.cherwell.org/news/2010/04/29/oxford-the-big-gay-truth

    there is a bisexual double standard. why does only bisexual/lesbian women get so much hype??

  • Mark

    @Lil: Of course, male population is more bi-curious. However, standards of porn-industry and show-bisiness suppress male bisexuality and transform to the homophobia!

  • Mark

    The attitude to the female homosexual behavior is much better than than the male. And precisely because of the porno stereotypes ! Attitude toward male and female homo / bisexuality is fundamentally different.
    If we raise the question of double standards, it does not mean that we are acting against lesbians, but gloss over the subject is impossible. Since in this case indicates homophobes on their hypocrisy, and already they have to justify . However, this is not done, but often gay themselves are actively involved in the exacerbation of double standards on bisexuality. Blaming male bisexuality, which is characteristic of many men and repression of which leads eventually to the violent homophobia.
    The roots of homophobia is in fear in front of homo eroticizm (whether it’s love or sex of the two men). Which went from 18 Levit. It does not matter whether the latent bisexual or heterosexual men are typical. All they have to install that “right” masculinity can only lie in heterosexism.
    So what do many gay men, including and gay activists? Male homosexual behavior is driven further into the ghetto. Instead, to show that men can be attracted to other men that it does not mean that they immediately become gay. Prior to denying the very existence of bisexuality in men!
    But the latent homophobes does not change either Pride or “prayers for bobby” or the legalization of gay marriage. They need to create conditions in which they can express themselves without fear of social sanctions. Make it so that sex between men is commonplace!

  • Little Kiwi

    whenever you get some anti-gay religious nut preaching his bigotry to the masses he never talks about two smokin’-hot lesbians bumping muffs. ever. at all.
    it’s all about male-male anal sex. not woman on woman sex. there’s a reason for this.

    @jason: “Women are especially against male-male affection in the sense that they want the affection of men to be directed at them and them alone.”

    This is bullshit. You know who is against male-on-male affection?

    Men.

    Which is reflected in the fact that women statistically make up the majority of those who accept male homosexuality.

    “This desire of women to align with male heterosexual fantasy is symptomatic of the fact that liberalism/feminism/porn have turned women into man-pleasing whores. Modern women are basically prostitutes.”

    ^ No arguments here, I do think that post-feminism has led to women hypersexualizing *themselves* in an attempt to fulfill the role that modern men expects out of them – that of a sexual object, and nothing more.

    Most young women these days do act like whores – they just act like self-empowered ones.

    I base that generalization on anecdotal evidence Of the young women in my corporate office, probably about 90% of them act this way. They sleep around and they’re pretty proud of it. They don’t feel that there is anything shameful in promiscuity.

    But the men act *just the same way* though; the difference is that society views their man-whorish-ness in a more positive light. A man who sleeps around is a stud, a woman who sleeps around is a slut.
