Heterosexual female. Married. Oddly, though, even though I've always been attracted to men, and prone to epic crushes on them, it's generally their faces that really fascinate me, while, visually, I tend to find women's bodies more aesthetically pleasing. I've done my share of pondering, over the years, as to whether there might be some latent bi tendencies, there, but aside from the fact that I do believe everyone falls somewhere along a continuum, I honestly can't visualize an actual, physical relationship with a woman. I think it's just something about identifying with that form.

Or anyone who looks a bit like him.

That doesn't really count though, does it?

Hell no.  Again, I am straight, but that is one handsome son of a bitch right there.

I can relate to this. Aesthetically I find the female body more visually appealing. Though I've not really been able to find a correlation in this and an actual desire to be with women. I've met lots of men I'd pursue but never a woman.
Thank you for considering my point of view; however wrong it may be to you.

Everyone is allowed one man crush! I use mine on Tim Tebow. I could understand any man finding Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Sean Connery[1], or Matt Damon attractive.  I could prob rationalize a few more men for this list.

Every time my wife makes fun of my man crush on Mr. Pitt I throw my Mr. Connery voice at her.


It's fun.
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering, "I love you" repeatedly as they struggle to break free.

^ My theory has always been that I am confident enough in my sexuality to admit when someone of the same sex is physically attractive.  Do I WANT to have sex with any man? No.  But I am perfectly willing to admit it when someone is good-looking.

2.    Although I have dressed in drag and gone out in public on several occasions

Hmm, not done that one yet. I do go out dressed strange a lot of the time, chavs in my town tend to think I'm in drag when I decide to wear a kilt, yet a 3 year old kid say, "look mummy, that man's in a kilt", which suggests to me 3 year old kids are smarter than chavs. I don't think I've got the body to pull off drag, I figure it might be good fun to do just once. I was tempted to do it when I was performing for Young Storyteller of the Year (didn't get it ;)) I was demonstrating the traditional tale of where Thor goes in drag to pretend he's Freyja in order to seduce a giant to get Mjolnir back...see, why didn't they do this in The Avengers? I'm sure Tony Stark would have joined him.

A friend of mine went to a convention in London dressed in drag (and hetero too, meaning this association of drag and gay is utterly wrong) and he bumped into Cat from Red Dwarf, just wondering the streets.

I have loved...I mean intensely loved a few men in my life and had no problem telling them so. But, I am waaaaaaay too attracted by the female body and waaaaaaaay too un-attracted by the male body to even come close to bi-sexuality.

Love is one thing, and I have no problem expressing my love for ANYONE.

Yes, this is exactly the kind of thing I mean. My friends are like it too. Don't see why it's a big deal for some folks.

Quote from: Garja
^ Nah, you just come off as British.  Of course the two are virtually indiscernible to the average American.

Possibly, but believe it or not there's actually a lot of British people out there who'll think it's weird. At school I would DEFINITELY have been accused of being gay. Not that I don't mind people thinking I'm gay as long as they're not somebody I'm attracted to, to me that's a non-issue (don't understand why people think it's offensive), but in the school I went to that paints a target on your back...well I already had one of those already for just being a weirdo anyway.  ;D

However, maybe my old house mate snuggling up to me on the sofa a purring like a kitten might make us look like a happy male couple enjoying a romantic evening in front of the TV. ;) Ah....bromance.

Hetero. But why it always has to be about gender preference? I really don't get it. Gender preference is only one of the many dimensions that describe people's sexuality. The rest of the dimensions usually remain untouched. Go to a randon porn webside and you will find many categories that are even more "unorthodox" than gay porn.

At the time, I was 6 ft tall and about 180lbs. Little heavier now but yes I had fun every time I did it.

BTW, I am glad that you did not seem to take offense to my comment about Brits seeming gay to American, it certainly was not intended to be but I was concerned about it after I wrote it.  I really dont know what it is either... I am not sure why this exists in American culture.  I mean, I'm a pretty enlightened guy and even I get more of an impression of 'femininity' from Brits.  I know its just cultural differences and has nothing to do with sexuality at all... its weird.

Awesome, it's a bit out of the way, but it'd cool to go to. We've got a few storytelling festivals here in the UK, like Festival At The Edge. Looking at the acts I only recognise Michael Harvey, I've not actually seen him but I've got one of his CD's. To be fair I don't actually know of any American storytellers so it's nice to hear of US Storytelling Festivals. Saying that, I know Pete Castle performed at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.

Hehe, seen that before but it's awesome. :)

I think I can see why it exists. Stephen Fry, Eddie Izzard, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost (I'd say there's a bit of bromance there), Red Dwarf, Doctor Who, The New Sherlock Holmes movies, probably some other movies/series and famous Brits. ;)

But you could watch films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, This Is England and Trainspotting and see a different window portraying the British (a much more violent on than say, drinking tea and cuddling in drawing room). :P All very good films, if you want to watch a good film tackling the issue of racism 'This Is England' is one worth watching.

To be fair, we get the same kind of snippets of the US, we tend to see what you're like through film and TV more than reality. I have this image of Americans being really bad, impatient and angry drivers. ;)

And er...I think Gnu illustrates a fair point, Monty Python probably isn't helping.

Gnu, I cant take credit.  My wife saw it on Pinterest a few weeks ago and showed me... it was the first thing that popped in my head.

Have you been watching my wife drive?  In all honesty we do tend to be a very impatient lot as a whole... of course I work with 15 year olds all day so that may slant my opinion a bit to be fair.

How about trisexual?  (As in will try almost anything...)
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

That's commonly known as "kinky".
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
