    If a person is born blind, I wonder how would they know whether they are straight or gay, and what the things are that trigger orientation. Although sexuality is innate, there are surely, from a blind person's perspective, social triggers that influence which way they'll swing.

    They still have four other scenes to rely on. Looks aren't everything.

    You pose a very interesting question OP - It certainly got me thinking! I wonder if there are any blind members on the site who may be able to provide some insight?

    Hopefully your topic wont be hijacked into irrelevant bitchiness like many of late.

    If I was in a room so dark that I could not see and a stranger began to hug and kiss me, I would be able to feel the size and shape of their body, I'd be able to feel their bristles, feel how tightly they hug back, smell their sweat and hear their voice. Given the right combination I would probably be turned on.

    Regardless of whether I had ever clapped eyes on a man or not, I think I would be attracted to the everything else that goes with it.

    Is your dream character ever str8 when sexual orientation is the subject of one of your dreams?

    I have a similar but opposite problem. I'm in love with a gorgeous guy who's blind but I can't tell if he's gay...
