StraightGuise | Reasons straight men have sex with men

We are talking about heterosexual men who have sex with other men we are not talking about Gay, Bisexual or closeted men.  Joe Kort a psychotherapist compiled the list below in an attempt to identify the many reasons heterosexual men have sex with other men, it is included here purely for your consideration on this topic. However, it is a limited consideration because its’ clinical focus, it seemingly pathologies sexuality. It seemingly assumes that if a man engages in a sexual activity otherwise inconsistent with his expressed sexual orientation , this is somehow deviant requiring clinical intervention.  My concern being a denial of human sexual diversity and that the individual has to remain confined to a set of acknowledge behaviours consistent with certain labels.    Admittedly, if the man finds his own behaviour problematic and seeks change then this clinical approach may be appropriate.

Whatever the reason be respectful of you and others, forget the guilt and play safe
