Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Men by Jane Ward

A straight white girl can kiss a girl, like it, and still call herself straight—her boyfriend may even encourage her. But can straight white guys experience the same easy sexual fluidity, or would kissing a guy just mean that they are really gay? Not Gay thrusts deep into a world where straight guy-on-guy action is not a myth but a reality: there’s fraternity and military hazing rituals, where new recruits are made to grab each other’s penises and stick fingers up their fellow members’ anuses; online personal ads, where straight men seek other straight men to masturbate with; and, last but not least, the long and clandestine history of straight men frequenting public restrooms for sexual encounters with other men. For Jane Ward, these sexual practices reveal a unique social space where straight white men can—and do—have sex with other straight white men; in fact, she argues, to do so reaffirms rather than challenges their gender and racial identity.

Ward illustrates that sex between straight white men allows them to leverage whiteness and masculinity to authenticate their heterosexuality in the context of sex with men. By understanding their same-sex sexual practice as meaningless, accidental, or even necessary, straight white men can perform homosexual contact in heterosexual ways. These sex acts are not slippages into a queer way of being or expressions of a desired but unarticulated gay identity. Instead, Ward argues, they reveal the fluidity and complexity that characterizes all human sexual desire. In the end, Ward’s analysis offers a new way to think about heterosexuality—not as the opposite or absence of homosexuality, but as its own unique mode of engaging in homosexual sex, a mode characterized by pretense, dis-identification and racial and heterosexual privilege. Daring, insightful, and brimming with wit, Not Gay is a fascinating new take on the complexities of heterosexuality in the modern era.

MensXP: Indian Gay And Straight Men Talk About Relationships & Sex Part 2

Gay sex isn't a sin, it's brilliant

Spontaneous sex: a dream for a straight couple, a nightmare for the gays. It is sometimes needed: for an extra helping hand, as an added pleasure, or if the vagina has problems lubricating. Did you hear that, producers and directors of Brokeback Mountain? That no-entry sign is also erected after burritos and on a hangover. Nobody wants a nasty accident.

Yes, we can perform missionary

Let's talk about gay sex — because even in , misconceptions are seemingly inescapable. Maybe that's because sex between men or women, for that matter is still all but absent from mainstream media. In fact, the Elton John biopic "Rocketman," released in May, is reportedly the first big-budget studio film with a sex scene between two men. Or maybe it's because gay sex that does leach into popular media tends to misrepresent typical sexual encounters — often to an embarrassing extent. For example, most gay men would not describe quick, spur-of-the-moment tent sex, as featured in the film "Brokeback Mountain," as typical. Here are the most common myths about sex between men, and the reality behind them, based on several interviews with gay men living in the US. The film "Brokeback Mountain" features a sex scene that gay men say misrepresents a typical sexual encounter.

We're being facetious, of course. A study looking at the differences in orgasm frequency among gay, bisexual and heterosexual men and women suggests that same-sex partners are better at bringing their lovers to ecstasy than their heterosexual counterparts. On top of that, 86 per cent of gay women said they always orgasmed, compared with just 66 per cent of bisexual women and 65 per cent of heterosexual women. Of course, the other glaringly obvious conclusion from this study is that men in general, regardless of sexuality, orgasm more than women, as pointed out by Professor Frederick, who told CNN:. What makes women orgasm is the focus of pretty intense speculation. Every month, dozens of magazines and online articles highlight different ways to help women achieve orgasm more easily.

The basic mechanics of gay male sex remain a mystery to many. It's not surprising, considering the lack of gay representation in entertainment and the disturbing void of sex education in schools. Ever hear of a "no promo homo" law? It's a heinous education law that expressly prohibits teachers from discussing LGBT issues -- including sexual health, which can lead LGBT youth to feel invisible, anxious, or depressed. I don't know about you, but all I got from my health class in Catholic school was a small stick of Old Spice deodorant and the unsettling feeling that Jesus would know when I masturbated.
