Is straight the new bi?

    It definitely seems like more and more self identified straight guys are allowing themselves to explore beyond our culture's borders of what separates straight and gay. We are learning to connect more deeply as human beings without the restrictions that have been placed on such behavior ever since the dark ages. I view this as part the evolution of human consciousness. What do you think?

    Only with lots of booze and no women around. That's where the expression "a hole is a hole" comes from.

    It's pretty much always been like that- in homosocial environments where there's perceived safety, men can become intimate emotionally and sometimes physically.

    It was like that in ancient Greece, then in Rome (even during the so-called dark ages), in the Renaissance, and in the Enlightenment. The 'dark age' for male sexuality was really the 20th century, with the widespread idea of 'homosexuality' and 'heterosexuality' as mutually exclusive concepts. Maybe that's passing away? I don't know, it's hard to make any conclusions.

    I don't think so; self identifying as straight doesn't make you straight.

    ...an example,

    "I like to eat meat when I'm real hungry, but I'm a vegetarian."

    Totally disagree, brother. I'm not talking encounters that result from drugs or alcohol. I'm talking connections that occur from the realization that we are all human and sexual beings.
