Women are bisexual or gay but never straight, so says the results of a study conducted by the University of Essex.
The conclusion has been drawn after women, who classed themselves as straight, demonstrated positive signs of attraction to other women during a research program.
Results also indicated that women who labelled themselves as lesbians did genuinely demonstrate virtually no attraction to men, but a strong one to other females.
The experiment involved showing women a variety of clips of men and women with sexual overtones, with the subjects responses being recorded, including pupil dilation.
Dr Gerulf Rieger from the University’s Department of Psychology spearheaded the research, analysing 345 women.
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”.
He also added his findings regarding gender roles in homosexual relationships:
Although some lesbians were more masculine in their sexual arousal, and others were more masculine in their behaviours, there was no indication that these were the same women.
This shows us that how women appear in public does not mean that we know anything about their sexual role preferences.’
Interesting. The results, however, are more than likely not an endorsement for men to invite a female third party into the bedroom as a surprise, before any fellas go getting too excited.
