Linkadge,

That's very interesting. It seems that people are more bisexual than not.

I'm a gay male and somehow I'm one of the few that has never had sex with a woman or even wants to try. I tried and it was terribly creepy and I could not go through with it. Kissing was just icky.

Yet, I do notice that some women are sexy. I've even cuddled with female friends. It's just when they try to kiss me that we run into trouble. I just get the heebie jeebies....ICK!

My medications, (Celexa, Wellbutrin XR, and Neurontin, (occasionally Ambien)), do not cause any change in my sexual orientation. I still feel that kissing women is very creepy and icky.

Without medication I tend to be very sexually compulsive. On medication I am more able to be selective and healthy with my sexual pursuits.

That paper was interesting psychosage...

Having more connections between my amygdala on each side of my brain seems to be a good explanation as to why I tend to be more spiritually sensitive than most people. It kind of goes with the tradition in some cultures that gay men are the shamans...

Anyway, I find that the ways in which all people express their sexuality fascinating. It's also fascinating that medication can affect someone's sexual orientation....
