    READ ARTICLE HERE:

    Apparently, strokes can cause a shift in sexuality.... it has happened that a man turned straight from being gay as well:

    I should add this is anything but an incentive for "sexuality-changing therapies" since both of these were caused by strokes... and we do NOT want to begin inducing these in ppl...

    I'm not sure if I buy it.

    I love how with that shift in his sexuality came many other things like he wanted to become a hairdresser, lost all interest in sport, instead of drinking a few beers he wanted to go dancing all night in the local clubs. Seriously? LOL, how stereotypical.

    "I think I’m happier than ever, so I don’t regret the ­accident. I don’t question ­myself ­any more and don’t care what people think, I’m just me."

    I think this guy had some HEY GURL HEY in him from the start.

    I know someone who was epileptic, ended up having brain surgery and after his rehab had gone from gay to straight.

    You would think so, the problem is this phenomenon gets recorded elsewhere... its rare, but its not an isolated case

    I think it is feasible to think that with trauma, something like sexuality could be altered in a person. After all, libido can come and go with many outside situations, so I would suspect that something in the brain, maybe in the amygdala, might have caused a change.

    That being said, having a stroke to change your sexuality would be akin to trying to upgrade your computer by smashing it with a hammer. Or, electrotherapy would be akin to crossing your fingers for your PC to magically run Safari after a power surge. In other words, while it does happen, it is rare when it does and cannot (and should not) be replicated.

    Trollileo saidI heard something like this once. This guy used to be 100% straight and never had any interest in men. One night his girlfriend tied him up. When he woke up in bed, the girl punched him in the balls as hard as she could and now he's completely gay with no interest in woman. I need to find the article I found this in.



    Totally funny!


    I think most guys would think about switching if women started punching their funbags.

    Or they were just "experimenting" with CBT...?

    Who knows, maybe another knock to his kishkes will set him straight again. icon_razz.gif

    Yeah... I don't buy it. At all.

    Too may problems with his story. Being attracted to men has zero to do with being interested/not being interested in sports. Has nothing to do with wanting to be a banker or a hairdresser. Has nothing to do with anything except the sex.

    Pretty idiotic to think people would actually believe this crap.

    Clearly he was either closeted and found this a convenient time to come out, or is a late bloomer to the realization of his sexuality.

    Well if that was true and something like that could happen and it happened to me I would tell the doctors to not revive me. To go from looking at all these hot guys on here to Women Drama and dealing with them when it is that time of month I would shoot myself if the doctors let me live.

    If he was having a stroke to gay porn he wasn't straight to begin with. Although if this story was actually true, they should strap him to a gurney, and experiment on him to find out more.

    Now everybody, have you heard? If you're in the game, then the stroke's the word.
