Homosexuality Advice & Information

When discussing human sexuality it is very difficult to neatly slot into little compartments all the complexities associated with individual sexuality and needs. Within the attraction of man to woman, man to man, or woman to woman, lies a whole spectrum of complex sexual and emotional affinities. Everyone is seeking closeness, ardor, warmth and love. All human relationships depend on the individuals within it, and not on restrictions imposed by society.

Some men...

Want sex with other men as a permanent part of their lives
May be curious about male bodies
In their life may experience an attraction to the opposite sex
Feel equally attracted to men and to women
May enjoy looking at men's bodies without desiring sexual contact
Prefer the company of other men for leisure or work in an all-male environment

Some women...

Feel and do all these things with other women
Are usually very loving with close friends without going further than cuddling
Become lesbians out of a genuine sole attraction for other women
May feel very dissatisfied with a male-dominated society
Find men unsatisfactory as lovers or as partners on an emotional level
May be very emotionally involved with a member of their own sex and wish to express their feelings through sexuality

There are so many varying shades of grey within society and social mores that it often makes it difficult for an individual to express their sexual needs.

One man in three has had some form of homosexual experience resulting in orgasm (Kinsey Report). Homosexual encounters between men usually begin in foreplay and end in orgasm, and some men find the lovemaking much less rigid than lovemaking between a man and a woman and both partners usually always reach orgasm. Sex with other men is often thought to be liberating as there are no rules or pressure to perform or satisfy the other person, and men understand each other's bodies better.

Some men have more honest and straightforward sexual relations with male partners both physically and emotionally, than with women. Also a lot of homosexual men get a great deal of physical and emotional satisfaction from being penetrated, which is not available in a male/female sexual encounter. Hygiene should always be the first priority in any act of anal penetration, as disease is easily transmitted in this way.

People are usually never completely 'straight' or completely 'gay' throughout their lives, especially during adolescence. Often homosexual experimentation takes place. Few people can truly say that they belong exclusively to either extreme. Statistics list 1 in 10 as exclusively gay or lesbian, while others fall in the bisexual category. The sexual orientation which is best for a given individual is the one which she or he is most comfortable with. The sexual choices of others should be respected.
