New Book: "Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Men" Says 'Homosexual Contact is a Normal Part of Male Experience'
A new book is asking us to examine the double standards for people who identify as straight experimenting with members of the same sex.
When women dabble in the Sapphic side of things, Dr Jane Ward says, society either (unkindly) sees it as an attention-grabbing move, or (more kindly) that they're exploring the fluidity of female sexuality.
But there's no such leniency for straight men - if a hetereosexual guy gets it on with another straight man then it must be because he's desperate, locked up on a submarine or in prison, or gay (but pretending not to be).
In 'Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Men', Ward argues that homosexual contact is a normal part of male experience - but society has always felt the need to explain it away.
