Well, studies reveal that is in fact true. A past study by the American Psychological Association was orchestrated to investigate whether homophobic men tend to show more sexual arousal to homosexual cues than those whom are non-homophobic.
The study published, reeled in 64 heterosexual Caucasian males between the ages of 18 and 31 years old. All of the volunteers reported a behavior of being aroused strictly in heterosexual situations. Answering a series of questions regarding anxiety and comfort levels when around gay men, they were then split into two groups based on their scores. The first group was labeled as homophobic and the other was labeled as not homophobic.
They were positioned to endure three to four-minute videos — one of heterosexual sex, one of lesbian sex and one of gay male sex. To detect and measure sexual arousal, the men had devices attached to their penis’s during the videos.
Concluding the video, results concluded that both homophobic and non-homophobic men displayed increased penis circumference when watching straight and lesbian porn. However, only the homophobic men showed heightened penis arousal during the gay male porn; the non-homophobic men remained flaccid. Although it was the homophobic men who stated to have no feeling of sexual arousal by gay male porn during the screen, their penises reported otherwise.
