    You're Not as Kinky as You Think

    Or maybe it's more that everyone is kinky.

    I really want to know what #8 was on that list.

    The longer I live, the more sure I am that everyone is some level of kinky, and that most people just won't admit it or are afraid of it. Which is a shame for them.

    Straight men prefer heavy women to thin ones.
    I don't think the above is true.

    Straight women enjoy reading about and watching romances between two men — it’s not about the sex, which is downplayed, but the emotion, which is the focus.
    I don't believe this either.

    Straight men have a fascination with other men’s penises, which may be conscious or unconscious.
    This I agree with, LOL.

    I know anecdotes don't always mean much, but from personal experience with a large number of friends and on various websites, etc., straight women definitely find romances between two men to be a huge turn-on. If they're willing to admit it, at least.

    I'd like to know how they define 'heavy'. If they mean a size 6-10 as opposed to a 2, I can believe that. Guys seem to prefer actual curves and some meat on a woman's bones, again speaking anecdotally and based on other studies I've seen. If they mean BBW... I don't think I believe that.

    M/M romance sales to women are booming--one of the hottest trends in digital publishing.

    Hmm, well, I watched Real Sex on HBO long ago and one of the things I remember most distinctly from it was that BBW sex was one of the most popular porn genres.

    Remember, they never said that straight men prefer heavy women in real life; the article was about what sort of sexual material straight men look for on the internet. Women are interested in submission and dominance on the internet, too, but that doesn't mean they necessarily want to actually experience it.

    Most M/M slashfic is written by women.

    BBW is quite popular, but not more popular than... everything else (excusing some things like the granny porn mentioned) which features skinny girls. They may search for BBW more often... but you don't have to search for the thin girls specifically. That's just the norm.

    I guess I'm a deviant then because (a) I don't think I'm remotely kinky and (b) if I'm looking at porn, I want man on woman or woman on woman. In both cases, I can imagine I'm one (or both) of the women but I can't imagine anything with man on man porn. Plus, it grosses me out for some reason. (The same way thinking about my parents having sex grosses me out.)

    I really don't care about the gender, to be honest. I need it to seem real and have good sound. I'm aurally fixated

    I don't trust non-kinky people. Vanilla is for ice cream only!

    I do. Sometimes when I see really thin women on TV, I think that straight men wouldn’t want to have sex with someone like that for fear that they might break her!

    I'd guess pedophila. Or beastiality. Or pedophilic beastiality. (The yuckiness of both has probably affected my spelling. I'm kinky...but not THAT kinky!)
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I know tons of straight women who think man on man action is a big turn on. They admit to seeking out gay porn when they want to look at porn. They probably are more free to admit this to a gay guy than their other straight friends.

    If people aren't at least a little kinky, they're limiting their options in the bedroom IMO. It takes a lot to not get into a routine when it comes to that...and having more options definitely helps.

    But Real Sex was referencing DVD sales, not internet searches.

    That's me. And I admit it to anyone and everyone. I prefer men on men. Not the romance, emotion stuff, that always seems silly to me. Just the straight to the point, good old fashioned men only action.

    And I am a straight woman. Maybe I am a gay man trapped in a straight woman's body?

    As a gay man, I don't like gay porn. I only watch straight porn... Maybe I'm a straight man trapped in a gay mans body. Also, my 51 year old sister reads m/m romance novels and wants to tell me about them all the time, which makes me
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    And so badly written at times as to be unreadable. At least most of the online stuff I've read.

    Hm. I wonder . . . if everyone put images of themselves having sex online, how many of their offspring would search for it and how many would

    Ah, I missed this, sorry! Not sure how. Thanks for clarifying.

    People still buy DVDs, though? ...Why?

    Allow me to repeat:

    Specifically, the broadcast was from 2009, so a couple of years ago, anyway.

    But that would be two separate sources verifying that a lot of straight men like BBW porn. That does not necessarily mean that they like BBWs themselves.
