    Ancient Greece would be puzzled.

    So I've hear some homosexual people say how they are disgusted by vaginas and straight people say they are disgusted by gay porn and dicks. I consider myself mostly straight but I saw gay porn and it wasn't disgusting, It just didn't excite me, I just feel nothing watching it, I don't throw up either, its just something that's there, if I was to throw up I think I had an actual issue there.

    Its actually dehumanizing to call other people body parts disgusting.

    I am puzzled, I can understand the act of gay porn not being exciting to most straight men but to say its disgusting and I would throw up watching sound like just straight up lying to make yourself look straighter than straight. Is this people's ego speaking? Males you have a dick, right? Your familiar with your own best friend in your pants? Why disgusted seeing another 2 then?

    There was a great YouTube video where straight young males were watching gay porn for first time and give reaction, not a single one throw up, and not a single one felt it was disgusting, so what's up with all the childish reaction to something as minor as that?

    Am I missing something?

    What's up with an overexaggerated reason to disliking something.

    I'm looking too hard into this also.

    Could be something cultural, could be overcompensating behaviour, like you stated. But most people I know who talk about it aren't straight; they're either gay men revolted by vaginas, or lesbians with penis aversion. These can come down to any number of things depending on the person in question (sometimes trauma, sometimes not), and I think at the end of the day, if someone doesn't like something, they don't like it and that should be enough. :slight_smile:

    Among the middle aged in the US, there was a lot of that when we were younger.

    Just to be thought of as gay was big threat to your manliness, so to prove you are 100% straight you had to demonstrate how repulsed you were by gay porn, and at the same time when those same people weren’t worried about their masculinity they didn’t make a big deal about it.


    One interesting reaction was from a closeted friend. I mentioned the details of a specific sexual act with a women and with a knee jerk response he said ew gross with the look of disgust on his face.

    So.....

    I don't get discusted by porn or by male genitalia or vagina.

    Watching porn is just a way to help relieve yourself and different people have different preferences. There are some things in porn though, where I do draw the line.

    Male genitalia and vagina are natural part of human body.

    Even though I wish I would be fully male, then I don't get disgusted, just very uncomfortable, with having female characteristics and don't want them. I don't know, if thats weird that I don't get discusted. I have worked as a carer, so I have seen it all and maybe that's why.

    For me, I think it depends on context. I wouldn’t say that male genitalia disgusts me in of itself. I’ve watched Naked Attraction, for example, and didn’t need to have a bucket nearby. I certainly don’t feel the need to go around telling people that male genitalia are disgusting.

    However, the thought of being involved with male genitalia in a sexual context is a completely different thing. I have done it, and whilst I would say that some elements are more boring than repulsive, there were other elements that did actually make me feel sick.

    The other thing I would add though, is that it’s not purely about genitals. It’s the whole package that makes the experience unpleasant, so broad shoulders, build, facial hair, smell, etc. It’s just not for me.

    I've been asked by a couple of straight men before if I'm equally as repulsed by men kissing because it's not aesthetically pleasing to me. The answer to that is no. My reaction depends on the context, for example if I were watching a TV show and the main character was a gay man who was picking the wrong guy, then I might be annoyed at the main character because dammit! Or if it's the dramatic climax of the story and it's a healthy couple that I was rooting for that get together then I'm happy. However, if I just see two guys I don't know in public kissing, I don't have any reaction to it, I might if they were making out in front of the pasta aisle and I wanted pasta, then I'd ask them to move out the way because I want pasta.

    However, people tend to assume that I'm incredibly disgusted by or hate men. I'm not sexually attracted to them, but I'm not repulsed. Rather, I'm just apathetic to men's bodies. I'd be disgusted if someone sent me an unsolicited dick pic because that is disrespectful of my boundaries, but I've seen them on TV before and yeah, they exist, but I don't want to throw up or anything like that.

    People are always odd about it when I compliment men. They'll say "I thought you were gay?", yeah and? Style recognises style. I think it's a shame that it's not as socially acceptable for other men to compliment each other and that when women compliment men it is almost always taken as flirtation. I wish I could compliment guys without them taking it as being hit on.

    The above rings true.

    I'm not repulsed by anything having to do with human bodies. I can look at images or film of the human body and find them all interesting. They're all so different! Some aren't as kept up as others, either because of biology, effort, nutrition, and so forth.

    I can easily be turned off by certain more extreme sex acts and the thought of watching them or participating in them.

    A complex topic, but I believe in some cases it may come down to their upbringing, society and/or religious views, all of which can tell us that any same sex interaction, be it simply admiring the form of another with the same appendage as yourself, is wrong. This may lead to them to degrade or dehumanize everything that does not fit into their sexual view of the world and for some, reaffirm their own sexuality or rebuke any insecurity the may have. If these views are strong enough, I suppose it could lead to physical sickness brought on by their mental conditioning.
