    ‘‘I love a quick cuddle. Just so you remember your friends are around and are there for you.” This is John, a self-identified straight guy who took part in a study investigating attitudes toward same-sex cuddling at a university in the U.K. Researchers found that 97.5% of heterosexual, male college athletes have shared a bed with another guy and 93.5% have indulged in spooning. “We very often have hangover cuddles and naps together,” reported another participant named Max.

    The top comments I read don't exactly agree with the findings but that's always the dangers with qualitative studies as from what I read it seems to be centered around individual accounts. If someone hasn't had those experiences then they are likely to disagree with it.

    Obviously I'm not straight and I'm not on a sports team either but I think the study probably does reflect some truth because my (straight) friend and I are quite tactile like I lean on him on the settee when I'm tired, we sometimes spend all day in bed together watching films/drinking alcohol before going out at night etc and sleep in the same bed too (we're all for spooning) and because he is straight, regardless of my sexuality it is platonic, not unlike the study showed.

    I just read the article. A stupid, straight-chasing fag probably wrote it, and it makes gay men look pathetic.

    Hahaha true. And notice that they specified "sporty young men" and not men in general. lol Gays are so obsessed with changing people's sexuality.

    No, not gays. Maybe some gay men. If anyone wants to change people's sexuality, it's homophobic breeders who run conversion camps, and call homos pedophiles.

    Those of us that are *coughs* older can tell you that straight men being affectionate in this way is nothing new.

    I can also tell you that one of the the reasons there has been animosity towards gay in the past is because straight men didn't like others to think there may be more to it than being friendly. An example of what they used to get angry with gay men about is at least one comment on this topic.

    Respect. It works.

    Just like homophobic fucks keep whining about the gay agenda, and trying t change gays or kill them let's not omit that.

    Yeah I agree. IMO nobody should try to change and/or alter anyone's sexuality. People are who they are.

    My brain isn't working yet. I want to make sure I know which quote you're talking about. Is it this one: "“heterosexual” guys are much more likely to exchange strictly sexual favors. I dont see guys on sites like craigslist looking to cuddle."
