One Possibility as to Why People with Anti-gay Leanings Would Consume Gay Porn

Pornhub have released porn use figures showing that in the US the Southern states watch more of Pornhub’s gay collection than non Southern states. These states tend to be more anti-gay rights than the others. Now the article where this has come from offers several arguments as to why this may be so and I would urge you to click here to look at them. However, here I have added another argument, which I believe may offer some explanation. It is based on the notion that heterosexuality is actually not the default sexuality but instead humans are capable of multiple sexualities (à la Foucault).

Social environments, where sex is generally treated as a ‘bad/naughty’ thing outside of marriage, and masturbation the same, may encourage the association of sex with ideas of what is ‘bad’. So a teenage boy, as nearly all teenage boys do, starts masturbation with the idea of doing wrong. At first this begins with heterosexual fantasies. Later, however, as heterosexuality becomes more acceptable in the conversation of males nearing adulthood, the fantasies loose their association with ‘bad’. Yet the arousal had always been triggered in line with a notion of being ‘naughty’ but now with that gone the arousal wanes. So the man goes elsewhere for forbidden fantasies and in an anti-homosexual environment gay fantasies fill that void. This is an argument that would also help explain why so many Catholic priests have engaged in paedophilia.
