    Alcohol and Sexuality

    ● If you're straight, and have homosexual tendencies when drunk, are you gay?

    ● Likewise, if you're gay, and have heterosexual tendencies when drunk, are you straight?

    ● How does this affect the notion of being born gay/straight?

    [Saw part of this question on the Steve Wilkos show. The poll applies to the first two questions.]

    It tends to go the other way when I drink.

    Re: Alcohol and Sexuality

    Your questions illustrate the problem of describing sexuality as an exclusively dichotomous reality.

    Being drunk clouds ones judgement, but it also loosens the mind and removes mental barriers to actions and thoughts. If anything I would say if someone is drunk and they have sexual attractions that are not normal for their orientation it is probably due to repressed sexual desires/fantasies that the person has. And no, I do not think these things would make a homosexual heterosexual or a heterosexual homosexual.

    I do have to admit that the more I drink, the less a certain part of me is willing to become perfectly straight.

    and now that I am an old fart, this tendency has only worsened.

    alchohol loosens you up and removed inhibitions....and fears.

    so if alchohol makes you feel sexually attracted towards men..and even has you act on, then yeah...one could argue that the alchohol is allowing you to expose your repressed homosexual feelings.

    I, however, become become even more hornyier towards women when I drink.

    Re: Alcohol and Sexuality

    Everyone is a little gay. Some people who try really hard to suppress the little bit of simple affection they have for other people. It doesn't change who you are. It makes you normal. Those suppressions aren't so strong when you're a bit zonked. Also, let's remember, a lot of things that someone might perceive as "gay"... aren't really. Unless you actually go to bed with someone, you're probably fine.

    Re: Alcohol and Sexuality

    Neither. Sexuality isn't black and white like that.

    I'm straight. Yet there are a few isolated cases where I've been attracted to a woman. It's different than my attraction to men. The only way I can think to describe it is a "proto-attraction." It's like it never completely developed into the capacity to have full romantic feelings for a woman, but there's a vestigial trace of it buried somewhere in my psyche.

    Does that make me gay, or even bi? I don't think so, no. It just makes me human. I'm complex and not perfectly black or perfectly white. Most people aren't. Even people who are "straight" or "gay." And some people are considerably more gray than that - bisexual, pansexual, hell, some people are asexual. All normal.

    Re: Alcohol and Sexuality

    I am no more attracted to women when drunk than I am when sober. Then again, I have no "latent, subconscious" attractions. I am well aware of my bi-sexual leanings and fairly open about them. As I am in a committed, long-term relationship, I no more act on those attractions when drunk than I do when sober.

    Then again, I can count the number of times I've been drunk in the last 5 years on one hand with fingers left over, so...
