Men identifying as “Mostly Straight” because “Bisexual” is still “Too Gay”

Savin-Williams is a professor emeritus of development psychology at Cornell University and the author most recently of Mostly Straight: Sexual Fluidity Among Men. We hear a lot about the Big Three Sexualities — straight, bisexual and gay. Most of us assume that these three orientations encompass the universe of sexual identities. But there is a new kid on the block: The mostly straight male.

To the uninitiated, mostly straight may seem paradoxical. How can a man be mostly heterosexual? If you’re a young man, you might assume that either you’re straight or you’re not, meaning you’re likely gay and maybe bisexual. Yet the evidence suggests that more young men identify or describe themselves as mostly straight than identify as either bisexual or gay combined.

A 2011–2013 U.S. government poll found that among 18- to 24-year-old men, 6% marked their sexual attractions as “mostly opposite sex.” That’s nearly 1 million young men. Yet when these men were forced to choose between straight, bisexual or gay, about three-quarters marked straight because for them bisexual, even if it is understood as “bisexual-leaning straight,” is too gay to accurately describe their identity. Given such constraints, these young men were left with no place to truthfully register their sexuality, thus forcing them to be less than honest. Talking to them, I found that in the most general sense, a mostly straight young man is sexually and/or romantically distinctive; we might say that he’s fluid or flexible, supposedly uncharacteristic of male sexuality. Traditionally, our understanding has been that if you’re male and have even a slight attraction to the same sex, then you must be gay. Even if this isn’t immediately apparent, we tell men, it will become so once you come to terms with your true self and exit your “phase” of bicuriosity or questioning. Women, by contrast, we give more space to be sexually fluid, as the sizeable literature on the subject attests.

The mostly straight man belongs to a growing trend of young men who are secure in their heterosexuality yet remain aware of their potential to experience far more. Perhaps he’s felt attracted to or fantasized about another guy to a slight degree or intermittently. He might or might not be comfortable with this seeming contradiction, a hetero guy who, despite his lust for women, rejects a straight label, a sexual category and a sexual description that feels foreign. He’d rather find another place on the sexual/romantic continuum, some location that fits him more.

I can't see a problem with "mostly straight." It's just a less clinical term. I myself am "mostly nice"...it doesn't mean I'm cruel or hissy, it just means for the most part, I'm not. It might also get complicated for a guy if he's looking at the number of his partners. If he's been with 20 girl and 3 guys, I can see how they'd consider themselves "mostly straight." Their thinking might change at a later date...or not.

There's a lady right now that I'd totally have sex with, and about 30 men I would. So, I guess technically I'm "mostly gay" or bisexual or whatever we call it.

I can't believe that anyone still buys into the porn bullshit. 90 per cent of guys that do porn are damaged and usually from poor socioeconomic backgrounds with all sorts of issues, the biggest being their sexuality. They are usually from backgrounds with homophobia and judgemental family. Of course they would lie and say they're straight even though their have cocks up their asses and shoving cocks in their mouths like it was oxycontin.

Male sexuality is black and white. You are never going to get a true shade of grey because of environmental factors that distort results. If you eliminate homophobia then you will get a true reading of male sexuality, but until then it's all supposition peddled by those with an agenda.

I know men who are bisexual but they call themselves "gay" especially to gay men as a lot of gay men don't understand bisexuality or will claim that they're lying, closeted, in denial, etc.

R55, "pansexual" is just another term for being bisexual. There are pansexual people but they are into sex acts that are illegal like pedo/hebephile stuff or sex with animals. See link, A rarity as a black serial killer, Coleman preferred to victimize African Americans - with Marlene Walters his only white murder victim - and once said he was forced by blacks to kill other members of his race. By the time he killed 9-year-old Vernita Wheat in Waukegan, Ill., on May 29, 1994, Coleman was well known to Chicago-area police as a sexual predator. While only once convicted and sent to prison (where he forced three other inmates to have sex), his rap sheet contained four arrests for rape. He had even been accused by a half-sister of sexually molesting his 9-year-old niece. A prison psychiatric profile found Coleman, a ninth grade dropout with an IQ on the lower edge of normal, to be 'a pansexual willing to have intercourse with any object, women, men, children, whatever.'

Neither of us would be good for each other in a legit full-on relationship. Generally speaking, he and his gf are great together socially, and cuddly, and romantically. She just doesn't suck dick like I do. I also don't ever want to spend the night with him cuddling, and planning our meals together - not my thing. I like what we have now. Is that so wrong?

I do find it hilarious that bisexuals keep complaining about erasure and bemoan the need to label sexuality and yet they constantly twist themselves in knots coming up with an seemingly never-ending stream of new labels to avoid saying 'I am bisexual'.

Just an aside, I've never understood the notion that bisexuals and homosexuals are similar, these are two completely different and distinct sexualities. A gay men will never truly know what it means to be bi, nor vice versa.

I listen to bi guys talk about their attractions for men and women vacillating over years, months, or even day-to-day. I listen to bi guys talk about being sexually attracted to men and women, but only romantically attracted to women. I listen to bi guys talk about being attracted to dicks but not men. I listen to bi guys talk about 'discovering' a sexual attraction to men in their 20s, 30s, 40s or even 50s.

I, as a gay man, can try to understand the experiences of bisexuals, but I will never truly know or relate to these experiences because I'm not bisexual. Just because we're all lumped into this expanding group of letters (LGB++++++) doesn't mean we can't acknowledge there are fundamental differences between bisexuals and homosexuals.

You see, my daddy started fucking me when I was 8. He was a huge, built cattleman. 6'4" and weighing at least 275 pounds and built like a shit brickhouse. He forced his huge, unwashed, cheesy cock into me. No lube. Just spit, or gun oil if he had any. He would degrade and feminize me. He made me wear my sister's dresses and patent leather shoes. Often he would parade me around town in my sister's dress and raise the hem and show laughing passers-by my tiny cocklet. I was so degraded! I've never been so humiliated! He would make degrading gestures by putting his thumb and forefinger close together, leaving only a tiny space between them, and indicate this was how small my puny clit was. He called me a f@g, a punk, a buttboy, and a queer. He made me dance degrading dances and sing humiliating songs for my uncles and grandpappy. These were heavyset, weather-beaten cowboys with handlebar mustaches, thick biceps and meaty thighs. They would laugh while I danced for them, jacking their huge cocks. I was forced to service their nasty, huge cocks. Then they would pack my rectum full of hot jizz.

If you have such hatred and animosity towards anything gay, why not go to you own "non-gay" website? Why do yo come here to a GAY site. Oh wait, is it because there are so few of you non-gays the miniscule traffic to any such site wouldn't begin to cover the costs?

Keep in mind Breitbart is probably in this thread trying to push their agenda of breaking up our community.

That said, Bisexuals are notorious for pursuing trans women for sex, but refuse to consider them for normal relationships. They seem to do the same with gay men or female bisexuals touristing with Lesbians. When bisexuals start loving same sex partners or trans, I think they will be more respected. We are as worthy of love, legitimacy and relationship status as hetero relationships. Your lgbt sex partners should not be dirty secrets.

I really don't think most straight women are that desperate, yes there will be few who feel their biological clock is ticking and will settle for a bi man.

If anything is truly toxic, it's slathering your face in chemicals every day.

Getting white guys to fuck me or let me fuck them has never been an issue. Finding ones worthy of being married to is another thing altogether.

Men (and perhaps a good chunk of women) who are "sexually fluid" are almost undoubtedly psychopaths. Which is why gay men and lesbians are often disdainful of bisexuals. Male psychopaths tend to be sexually fluid because their brains are structured in a way that makes them prone to boredom and in need of novel (and often socially prohibited) experiences. Sexual fluidity (especially in men) is a huge red flag.

I think that the main problem there is, is that many people don't understand that there are many manifestations of bisexuality and that it doesn't imply the desire of running out with a person of the same gender, or the compulsion to have sex with everyone (especially, other men). The homophobic assumption that gay sex is somehow perverted and immoral and it reflects some form of pathological behaviour, is one of the things that lies at the root o the perception of "gayness" as something shameful. The other part is the misrepresentation of gay people are ridiculously effeminate, promiscuous drug-addicts (again, assumption of mental disorder), weak, incapable of behaving in a respectful or socially responsible way, obsessed with hedonism, etc.

While a part of gay culture is like that, it is unfair to assume that everything is like this and also, many straight people are like that - go to any of the resorts in the Mediterranean like Magaluf or Agia Napa, and you will see lots of straight people being promiscuous, getting drunk and doing drugs and being obsessed with partying and hedonism. And I am not only talking about young people, but there are individuals in their 50s and 60s acting the same way. The only difference is that in the case of straight people, this is assumed to be "mere fun", whereas in the case of gay people it is seen as an all-consuming obsession and something that a reviled minority shouldn't do, lest our lack of sainthood validate the prejudices that many can barely hide.

Also, to say that the only straight-obsessed men are older gay men is untrue; bisexual men and younger gay men also seem to be obsessed with the idea that straightness is somehow better. This is because the acceptance of gay people seems to be linked to generality (which is to say, gay people are viewed as a concept, rather than a community of real, diverse individuals who deserve to be accepted as they are, and not because they are perpetual victims who must be pitied and sanctified), but many people seem to have a problem when they see a gay person not complying with certain social mores, or not acting like a good, grateful little sidekick. The newer generations are very guilty of this, and they seem to be more concerned with looking the part and being politically correct, than with the actual support and acceptance of gay people as we all are.

So, as long as homosexuality is typified as something anomalous and unhealthy, many people will have extreme problems wanting to have anything to do with it. Also, the truth is that the world is filled with hypocrites who want to have someone to hate, all the while convincing themselves that "they are not the same" because of some feeble subterfuge.

So yes, I understand why this phenomenon takes place, and why many men are afraid to become associated with gay culture or even come out as bisexual; after all, we are all social beings and we need acceptance and a sense of belonging in order to exist. the real problem starts when these bisexual men twist themselves into knots to justify their same-sex attraction and vilify gay people just to make themselves feel a little less ashamed of their own emotional conflicts with their sexuality. Until these things are not solved, sadly, being linked to "gayness" will always be a source of shame, opprobrium and revulsion for many.

I think this is fantastic. Only eldergays seem to have a problem with this. I read another study from the UK stating almost half of UK's youth don't consider themselves straight.

It's great to shy away from the gay identity because the so-cakked gay Identity created a fake and unreachable lifestyle most new generations don't identify with.

Youngsters are tired of having sexuality associated with style, happiness or even sexual freedom. I'm a millennial and don't know one gay that is effeminate or that likes musicals or fashion etc. The new generations can't identify with this stupid idea of old that gays have some " essense " that always shuns masculinity and creates a beast that is supposed to be happy all the time, to know everything about style ( a la queer eye the most toxic show to sell this image) and be "fabulous".

There are lots of guys like this. They enjoy sex with men and women but only have romantic for women. They identify as straight for that reason.

I identify as gay but I mostly slept with girls as a teen because I was too intimidated to approach other boys. When I got a little older, late teens-early 20s, I stopped fucking girls because of all the romantic baggage that seemed to accompany it.

It's also not the case that 'not straight' means gay. That's a really stupid assumption.

I don't care what you call yourself, but if you're a man who routinely has sex with other men, no matter what else you do, you are NOT straight. By the very definition of the word straight. There are a myriad of words that might and probably do apply to you (bisexual being one of them), but straight is NOT one of them.

I'm yet to meet one single straight person who hasn't slept with the same gender. Once they learn I'm gay but not "those type of gays" they open up to me. I actually met my bissexuality husband through mutual friends when he confided to me he likes men too.

Efemniate men are a minority it's just the truth, that's why they're mocked because they're not common. We should respect them but at the same time you need to understand that no dude bro ( gay straight or bi) will open up to a gossipy guy acting like a 12 year old school girl.

I have to laugh. While this stupid, repetitive thread sputters to its eventual death, straight-identified men all over the world are blowing their loads into other men, oblivious to ancient queens denying their existence.

They fuck women, love women, date women, marry women. They do all the things straight men do but with one addition. They also fuck men.

It really is that simple. And the OP's link is correct. "Mostly straight" is a better identifier for these men than bisexual, which implies the man views his relations with both sexes more or less equally.

But it really doesn't matter much to mostly straight men. They're out having fun while you argue about how they define themselves.

We get that; we really do. But a lot of these posts are explaining the mindset of the "mostly straight" dudes, who, obviously, don't completely agree with your definitions. There's all this defensiveness about "these guys aren't straight." Yeah, again, we understand that, but people are trying to expound on what the "mostly straight" guys are thinking, which is apparently that "straightness" encompasses sexual conduct and a host of other behavior, characteristics, interests, and cultural touch points.

As has been pointed out many times, not everyone defines themselves accurately. Many are in denial, for many reasons.

You can define yourself as a vegetarian all you want, but if you eat bacon cheeseburgers, you're not actually, really one. You're just lying to yourself and others.

It's not *defensive* to say that they're not really vegetarian, just like it's not *defensive* to say that a guy who claims to be straight but who has regular sex with other men isn't actually straight.

I wouldn't be arguing if he claimed to be 'mostly straight' if they mostly have sex with women, and only have *relationships* with women. The denial is that someone who regularly has sex with members of the same sex cannot call themselves 'straight' without lying to themselves and to others.

Again, there's nothing controversial about this. I'm not denying behavior exists, or denying that some are in denial about their behavior. I'm making no judgement calls at all.
