"A psychiatrist at New York University who studies human sexuality has devised an incredibly specific test to get to the bottom of how gay/straight/bi/queer everybody really is! It’s called the Flexualitytest, and in a little under 15 minutes you can finally pinpoint your real sexual orientation once and for all.” - Madison Moore

For those of you who squirm at the idea of labeling your sexuality, get ready for this: According to the Flexuality test, the terms “bi-“, “homo-” and “heterosexual” aren’t clear enough words to determine an individual’s sexuality. Add to the mix: “ambisexual”, “heteroflexible”, “polyamourous”, “queer” and “supersexual”.

If you ask me, this is just a fancier, more complicated version of the Kinsey Scale. Click here to take the test which will determine results a person with a brain can figure out on their own.

"Why are more and more straight men locking lips in public—and does it mean the end of homphobia?" - Lucy Tobin

More men are openly kissing in public

Note: While we’re on this topic, a new book titled The Science of Kissing by Sheril Kirshenbaum explores this human expression for love, attraction and lust.



Love, love, love this parody. It makes us want to throw on elaborate hats and leather trousers immediately.

I just never got a job [in Hollywood], and I never got a job [in Europe], after [coming out]. I did a couple of films, I was very lucky at the beginning of my career…and then, I never had another job here for ten years probably and I moved to Europe…Hollywood is an extremely conservative world that…pretends to be a liberal world…show business is ideally suited for heterosexuals, it’s a very heterosexual business, it’s run mostly by heterosexual men, and there’s a kind of pecking order…There are lots of women and lots of men in the business that the powers that be decide are the right people and they’ll stand with them for quite a long time…Like Jennifer Aniston will just have one too many total flops. But she’s still a member of that club. And she will still manage to, like a star forming in the universe, a whole lot of things will swirl around and suddenly solidifying into yet another vital tasteless romcom, a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula…A lot of straight actors are actively searching for gay roles because it is something different to do. I think that’s fine but that does mean the gay actor who used to just get to play the gay part—like me—has been reduced to drag really.

PSA poster assignment

I give this assignment an A+!

Dating site OK Cupid researched the sexual lifestyles of their heterosexual and homosexual male subscribers and found some interesting results:

1.) For the most part, gay men are not sexually interested in straight men.

2.) Gay men are not anymore promiscuous than their heterosexual counterparts.

3.) Heterosexuals have gay sex too.

4.) Surprisingly the Midwest, Pacific Northwest, West Coast, the upper reaches of New England and pretty much all of Canada is ‘gay curious’.

5.) Heterosexual males are apparently more adventurous, aggressive, competitive, confident, dorky, horny, into sports, kinky, optimistic, polite, romantic, religious and violent while homosexual males tend to be more ambitious, artsy, compassionate, generous, introverted, literary, political, spontaneous and trusting. Although both gay and straight men are equally into drug use.

Clearly a lot of these results are not facts we never knew before. But, it’s still interesting information regarding the differences and similarities between heterosexual and homosexual men. See more here.
