Sexual Behavior Vs. Attraction Among Straight Men Discussed On HuffPost Live

Posted: Updated:

HuffPost Live tackled the ongoing debate over perceptions of straight men who have sex with other men in an Oct. 11 segment.

"I don't it necessarily has to do with being straight or gay ... if you have a straight girl who sleeps with a lesbian, lesbians will still say she's straight, and so will society," said "Lesbians Explain: Sleeping With Men" creator Arielle Scarcella. "If a straight guy sleeps with a gay guy, he's totally gay. He could sleep with 100 women after that -- he's still gay."

Bert Archer, author of The End of Gay: And The Death Of Heterosexuality, offered a slightly different take. "Sexual attraction between straight men is never [permitted]. Sexual behavior sometimes is, but the admission of an attraction is [never allowed] if someone is defining themselves as straight."
