The female of the species is more arousing than the male…
We already knew almost a quarter of straight millennial women prefer girl-on-girl pornography to porn that depicts their actual sex lives so this news could seriously legitimise the mysterious straight-girl appeal of lesbian porn.
A new study has found women who identify as heterosexual become aroused when exposed to stimulating female images.
The study was led by Dr Gerulf Rieger from the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex, He explains:
“Even though the majority of women identify as straight, our research clearly demonstrates that when it comes to what turns them on, they are either bisexual or gay, but never straight.”
"Most women responded to both videos of attractive men and women with substantial [genital] arousal as well as pupil dilation," meaning their physiological responses were bisexual.
While the study confirmed that women who identify as lesbians are more attracted to women, it also found that NONE *of the women, gay or straight, were more attracted to males. Crazy!
Is it because men have fetishized bisexual women, making it more socially acceptable? Or is it actually true that we’re all a little bit gay?
We’re not sure there’s an answer for it. Sexual arousal is a powerful and complex thing. It’s also pretty great.
