I was sitting in my room on the computer when I suddenly got an urge to "try something new" with another woman. After I had repented, flogged myself several times, and promised to offer a burnt offering for forgiveness to the All-Powerful, All-Omnipotent, and All-Merciful Ruler of the universe, I skipped back to my bed and said a long, remorseful prayer. Refreshing.


 

Just kidding :p But, on a more serious note, is this common among either gender? I might just be asking some really weird questions, but does anyone else ever have a moment when they're attracted to the same sex? Is it offensive to people who are naturally inclined to be gay to "experiment"? Personally, even when I was a christian, I didn't know how to deal with the whole issue. It seemed so snotty just to say something like "I love the sinner and not the sin" (picture a victorian noblewoman fanning herself and in a fake, high-pitched voice going "hahahahaha" right after saying this). Now I don't really care. People should be able to be with who they love regardless of who it turns out to be. But I never thought that I'd ever have those types of feelings.


 

Any other thoughts?

I agree totally but everyone has to responsible for themselves and those they involve themselves with.  I am not against consensual sex (amongst adults, not including animals) but take some responsibility that your partner is of like mind.  Nobody should use another "just for sex" if that is not the same expectation of their partner of the moment.  We should always treat any other person with respect.  My opinion as a survivor of an unlawful act upon my person by someone I trusted (not a homosexual experience but still relevant).  And it wasn't one hell of a ride.  My point is to always be respectful, experimentation is natural, it is okay, just make sure your partner is on the same page.
I also fear the contempt that my family would also pour on me if (or when) they found out that I had acted on such feelings. I know it's none of their business, but I don't know which one would hurt more for them: my atheism or sexual experimentation.
When a family member pours out their contempt at a 'loved one' finding some joy in a simple pleasure that hurts no one and is nobody else's business, I have to ask why we even refer to family as 'loved ones'.
Obviously they frame the scenario differently in their heads.  It seems like 'love' is quite often a very fucked up and dysfunctional thing.
Yes, well around mother's day I hear a lot of self righteous proclamations about the unconditional love of a mother and I nearly want to puke.  If my own experience with that fallacy were unique I could chalk it up to aberration, but after years of volunteering with organizations that provide services to various groups of need I have come to realize that mothers can often more easily discard their children than they can the trash with whom they choose to share their bed.

I dislike the expression 'unconditional love'.  I would say being my mother's child is actually a pretty significant condition.  In a biological sense, that bond can't be severed, but in a symbolic sense it can be.

 

But that's not my point.  Love is a feeling.  Just because someone experiences that feeling doesn't mean it guides them to moral or principled behavior toward the people they love.  "Do person X and I love each other?" and "Do person X and I have a healthy relationship with each other?" are two very different questions.

Well, for me, love is something that I feel for a person that isn't based on aspects of their life that aren't a part of mine.  I have a cousin whom I love as a brother and there isn't anything he could do that would change that - although he could, and has, convinced me to leave him alone.  If I found out tomorrow that he was a serial murderer of children I would be incredibly repulsed by his crimes but I would still love him and wouldn't want him to get shot by the police or beaten to death in prison.  I would love to still exchange letters with him and read his hilarious rants about all sort of things.  When I hear of parents who never want to hear from their children again it just always makes me shake my head.
Good point. I guess it really comes down to the struggle between their close-mindedness and your right to live life however you want. When I was religious I didn't know how I'd deal with it. Being religious is crutch.
Love thy neighbour.

Personally I am not attracted to men at all but wouldn't dare judging anyone on who is attracted to the same sex.

 

Many people who claim to object homosexuality are simply hypocrites that tell their neighbor how upset they are about same-sex marriage and then go online to watch some lesbian porn.

 

I thought a bit about why in general lesbians are considered hot but two males getting jiggy(FYI I love that word) and came to the conclusion that female-female relations are seen as a very sensual and very feminine and therefore attracts a lot of male attention  but a male-male relation makes men look less manly.

 

That is just my humble opinion about this matter

 

And YES, I do enjoy lesbian porn.

I don't know - I haven't seen much man on man sex, but what I have seen looked about as manly as it could look because there were, surprise surprise, only men on which to look.

That's not the point.

Imagine you were a straight male. Let that sink into your mind a bit. Think about beer, football and fart as loud as you can. Now you're in the right mood.

As a male you are very competitive because you want to show the world how superior to other men and therefore manly you are. You simply feel the need to show dominance over pretty much everything.

Now think how manly a guy must look who is getting banged by another guy.

 

This is obviously a bit exaggerated but that's what I mean when I say it makes men look less manly.
