Sexual frustration. Sometimes I wonder if it would be easier being gay. Or bisexual. You know, play for one team when the other team sucks (oo err) and then switch back.
A gay friend once explained it to me thus:
A gay man is still a MAN. His attitudes about sex and relationships are the same as a straight man.
Brilliant! Which basically means there’s no beating around the bush, no playing coy or hard to get, no suffering the humiliation of finally getting her to go out with you only for her to say to you, “You are such a *great friend* to me”.
Nope, none of that shit. Just straight to the point – wanna boink? And you know how a guy would not mind sleeping with a female friend? Come on you know it. Haven’t you watch “When Harry Met Sally“? No man can be real friends with a woman because of the sex thing. Somewhere in the back of our heads, we’ve contemplated it. And we weren’t even drunk.
So yeah straight men wouldn’t mind sleeping with their female friends, but their female friends may have a problem with that, unless they play that game which is rare. Because someone’s feelings always get hurt blah blah.
But gay men don’t have that “friends” problem. No stupid ladder theory for them. Friend, schmeind. “You look hot. Let’s have sex. If the sex is crap, then we can still be friends.” Well at least that’s how I imagine gay men would behave. I haven’t watched enough of “Queer as Folk” to know – watching men kissing and fondling each other just doesn’t do it for me. That is, I would watch it more if it weren’t for the gay sex scenes. Ironic!
I think I lost my point four paragraphs ago. Oh yes, I think gay men have it easier because they don’t have to deal with women’s mind games. If they want sex, they can have it – just like a woman actually. Though I could be wrong. I’d hate it if I were to turn gay and then realise that gay men are just like women, head games and all except with penises, no breasts, and rough skin. *shudder*
Ugh. I am gonna go watch some straight porn to reaffirm myself now.
