Freud theorized that people often have the most hateful and negative attitudes towards things they secretly crave, but feel that they shouldn’t have. Well, you know he’s right –and men who are the most opposed to male homosexuality have particularly strong homosexual urges for other men. Get this. A recent study asked heterosexual men how comfortable and anxious they are around gay men. Based on these scores, they then divided these men into two groups: men that are homophobic, and men who are not. These men were then shown three videos; one with straight sex, one with lesbian sex and one with gay male sex. While they were, a device attached to each participant’s penis that triggered sexual arousal (but not other types of arousal like nervousness, or fear.) When viewing lesbian sex and straight sex, both the homophobic and the non-homophobic men showed increased penis circumference. For gay male sex though, only the homophobic men showed heightened penis arousal. Those heterosexual men with the most anti-gay attitudes had reported NOT being sexually aroused by gay male sex videos. But, their penises said otherwise. As Billy Shakespeare said, “The lady doth protest too much.” Yaass, gurl!
…and just in time for gift-giving season Tom Ford brings us the necklace to make your Uncle Joe REALLY nervous at Christmas get togethers. (Also perfect for the retiring porn star!) It’s called “penis pendant necklace,” so there’s no doubt about what it is, Catholics, and it’s offered in silver and gold, in three sizes: small, medium, and large. All are $790, which is democratic –and expensive. It had better be LARGE GOLD, if you’re trying to flatter or impress the giftee. Insert dick joke here. (via Psychology Today)
