Why are most men ok with two women being sexual but not two men?

Superb Opinion

  • Two reasons: first, they've spent their lives being bombarded with the message that women are absolutely gorgeously beautiful, and that men are hideous and disgusting, and second, the differing expectations placed on men and women.

    You're probably not going to like hearing this, but: society demands A LOT more from men than it does women. Don't believe me? Look at Ukraine. Men are not only forced into a war they have nothing to do with, but aren't allowed to leave the country at all, just in case the government decides it needs them to die, too. But women? They're free to leave whenever they want. If you have a Y chromosome, your life is only your own so long as no one in office decides it should be public property.

    Most of the demands place don us aren't nearly as severe, and a man, it's basically expected that you'll refuse some; that SOME aspects, you're going to tell society to go to Hell. And to an extent, you'll even be rewarded for this; guys who break the rules are seen as "cool". Women who do? Well, there's a surprising number of people who respect women for that, but respect isn't approval, or fondness, or status, and most people- to say nothing of society as a whole- will come down on her like the fury of Satan. Women are most definitely NOT given the leeway men are, and they're also not given the trust.

    Consequently, they're not taken as seriously. In ANYTHING. Not as leaders, not as builders or dreamers, and not as predators. Victims? Well, that's the exception, because victims aren't actors; they're the acted upon. So two women fooling around together? No harm in that. (Yes, this means that if you're a woman who gets raped by another woman, most people won't care.) Especially since women are (often subconsciously) still seen as being the ones who wait around for men to find them; two women together are just killing time before their future husbands choose them. But two men? Two men going so far as to reject the role society requires of them? THAT is intolerable. THAT must be punished, and prevented from happening again. See, the leeway we get only goes so far; it doesn't surpass our perceived disposability. Notice how tolerance of homosexuality (among those who didn't get there on intellectual grounds) only starts when people come to accept that it's ingrained; it's something you ARE, not something you DO.

  • We don’t perceive it as being as intimate or intrusive. Think about when a guy ejaculates inside you. You’re absorbing him, part of you is becoming him. Taking him inside you is more profound than us shooting our cum everywhere externally. It’s not as big a deal. It’s like peeing. But let a guy pee inside you…

Most Helpful Girls

  • I think part of it is due to acceptance of sapphic women. Another part of it is due to fetishization, especially in the sexual sense of the relationship (this never makes me feel good). But for gay & bi men, people have a harder time accepting it. Why? I have no clue. It's literally the same thing.

  • I know that many heterosexual men have a fantasy that involves two women having sex. I guess they see no problem because it pleases them. Whereas seeing two men having sex might is considered "gay" by the same men. They find it offensive.

  • One reason: PORN!

  • It's because guys feel that male homosexuality is an attack against their personal sexuality. Guys have a fear that other guys will label them into the "gay" category and exclude them from guy things.

    • That makes the most sense to me here! Thank you!

  • A homo is a homo. It doesn't mater if you're a man or a woman.

  • Most women are bi that's why it hard for you to understand, gays stuff disgusting to me.

    • I'm not sure if that's true.

  • Peer pressure

  • This isn't the dumbest question I've read but it's in such area.
    The answer is obvious we like women.

    • It's not dumb. Men are dumb because I'm straight and like men but don't feel attracted to seeing two men OR two women together. So why do men feel attracted to two women and feel women should not mind that and don't in general feel its acceptable that a woman would- by their definition - therefore enjoy seeing two men together "cos we like men". They still think that's wrong. It's a double standard that I find annoying and don't get. I'm straight and I have no issue with hay people of any gender living their lives however they wish. But I'm not sexually turned on by two men together just cos I like men. I may be turned on by two men being with me and giving me attention so yes I can see a man enjoying two or more women doing stuff to them. But not to eachother. I guess men's brains are just wired differently. Not dumb to ponder that difference.

    • If you can't find two men attractive just because they are gay that's a you issue. And calling that dumb well I guess that's just going from a mind blip to homophobic if you ask me. Think whatever ya want but the answer is simple a straight guy likes women, and if there is another woman that ain't gonna make him unattracted somehow well unless he's homophobic and finds it gross I suppose. But then that goes back to what I just said to you.

    • Haha well my best mates are gay and I like gay bars. I didn't say I wouldn't look at a man - whatever his sexual orientation - and find him attractive. I said I don't find it a turn on to view two men together.

  • Because most guys are straight, and don't want to jerk off to two men going at it

    • So by definition your saying straight women would jerk off to two men and not two women?

    • When did I even imply that?

  • They don't have an issue with either they just don't want to see one of them.

  • Women are hot. Two women would be twice as hot.

  • I'm not into men sexually.

    • I am. But I don't get turned on by either two women or two men together.

    • Personally I want MF only.

  • cuz they aren't into men
    they r into women n doubling it is doubling the fun ig🤷‍♀️

    • But as I say to my boyfriend I am into men but I don't wanna watch two men together. I don't get it

    • we aren't as visual as guys ig

  • *shuffles* --- I'm vanilla. Eyeballs 👀👀

    • Hahaha 😊

    • @crimsyjo yourself?

    • I liked your humor! And nooo... i don't think I'm vanilla. But I'm sure there are more extreme than me too. I'm happy with where I am.

  • cause most men are attracted to women and are disgusted by thinking of men sexually in general.

  • The double standard is so real

  • They probably lost 1/3 of their brain when they turned 13. Cringe factories they are for real for real

  • Because straight men are attracted to women, not other men. So to us, other men kissing is gross, women kissing is hot…

    • But do you have an issue with a woman saying two men is hot and two women gross? Cos I find men do think it's different. And with the "I'm straight" argument... well I'm straight and don't find either hot.

    • @crimsyjo nah that’s her prerogative we all find different things attractive

    • That's true. I just find guys I've spoke to and gone out with are very strong in their opinion and that their view is right over mine.

  • Most men don’t like another guy in a 3-some because they think it’s gay

    • I know. Yet my boyfriend doesn't get that even tho he wd hate a guy in a threesome I'd hate having a woman. Double standards!

    • I don’t mind a 3some with another guy. I’m just not having sex with him because I’m straight. My wife can take us in different holes or in turns. She can also have another woman if she wants. When there’s a will there’s a way.

  • Double standards I think

  • Because they are interested in women

    • I'm interested in men. Doesn't mean I get turned on by two men doing it.

    • Not everyone is the same. I like it

  • Its a pride thing, our brain is wired to see it as the guy's inability, it won't last long though
