Why do guys like lesbians? All the guys in my class are always talking about how hot lesbians are. What’s the deal with that?
The female figure has long been admired by both genders, as thousands of classic works of art through the ages will attest. And while men do have Michelangelo’s “David” to brag about, the male body seems comparitively utilitarian next to a female’s – not only does hair sprout from the most awkward of places on its lumpy form (unless you’re David), it’s equipped with a goofy-looking sex organ which is anything but discreet (David included this time). For this reason, the unsightly image of a male can be pretty distracting for a porn-watching guy trying to get a job done.
I’ve probably referred back to this previous post describing men as “visual” creatures at least three times now, but that’s only because this biological truth helps explain so many of our actions. If a woman’s form is what turns men on, the sight of a pair of women will naturally provide double the stimulation for such visually sensitive beings (three, of course, even better; four can cause heads to explode.) In other words, the more women in view, the more vivid the fantasy of ladypart layered upon ladypart becomes. Lesbians offer an increased number of sexual images to focus on without the distraction of some unappealing dude.
However, by no means are all men into lesbians. For example, some guys actually prefer adult movies which feature at least one male because it helps them imagine themselves in the scene. That is, as long as he remains in the background – some male O-Faces are more disturbing than any penis can ever be.
But ultimately, I wouldn’t get too hung up on this recent obsession you’ve detected. Often the “lesbian thing” is a phase younger guys go through when they first discover that girls can have sex with girls. They’ll likely lose interest when they get older and finally realize that the porn industry’s interpretation of lesbian relationships is about as “real” as the breasts of its actresses.
