    Why are there homosexuals?

    ROCK ON!

    Like anything there seems to be an enviromental and a genetic component. Is there any scientific revelations to either? Skip the political or religious stuff. This is in interest of evolution and WWGD.

    It's probably easy stuff for the studied.

    Lots of different answers and lots of different opinions/ideas will be forthcoming, I'm sure. There is a British actor by the name of John Barrowman who is openly gay and is probably most well known for playing the omnisexual Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and Torchwood (love him!). He did a really interesting show on BBC several years ago called "The Making of Me" and he explored a lot of different areas and talked to a lot of different people who are researching this very thing. It's worth a look.

    What would Grok do? The same as we do - get with whoever looks best to us and who answers our need to be loved, however we define that concept. I can see that there would be tribal advantages to spectrum sexuality; which is what I, as a ten-years monogamously hetero married card-carrying bi, think most of us have. Can't honestly see the advantage to pure-play hetero sexuality. Yes, reproduction is vital, but it isn't the only hallmark of a successful tribe (and who says you have to be in love/attracted to your co-procreater anyway?)

    That Love is all there is,
    Is all we know of Love;
    It is enough, the freight should be
    Proportioned to the groove.
    (Emily Dickinson)

    In the lingo of this forum, grease the groove and you'll be amazed at the results/gifts that ensue.
    I'm a newbie and lurker and have been impressed thus far by the thoughtful sanity of your posts, but to frame the question, imho, is to invite the bigots.

    Honestly, I've always thought that they provided the glue that made ancient tribes work and communicate socially, acting as match-makers and peace-makers in early societies where heterosexuals were too locked into procreation and strict gender roles. The ability to sit by both firesides, if you get my meaning. Very useful people to have around, even if they weren't producing the usual litters than straight people of the time were producing.

    um... no. Even a rectal exam is, well... unpleasant. And they're using extra lube!

    Homosexual women don't generally do a lot of "butt banging" with each other, but it is not completely unheard of.
    And what about tops... they like to butt bang, not be butt banged...
    Also... lots of straight guys enjoy butt banging ladies but not getting butt banged themselves, and many ladies enjoy a good butt bang from their guy.
    Oh, and lets not forget the straight men who are into a bit of kink and like to be butt banged by a lady (often a a girlfriend or wife) wearing a strap-on who is giving out the butt banging. (It's called pegging if you are interested.)
    The ladies involved generally quite enjoy doing the butt banging as well in that situation. Modern toys are a good thing I suppose.

    What was your context for "butt banged" again?

    Different strokes for different folks... literally.
    I used to have a female friend who swore to me that was the only way she could orgasm... and that she had multiples that way every time. *shrug*
    I do understand that lube is very important to the process though.

    That's like comparing intercourse to a pap smear. Quite a different experience, in my opinion!

    It does actually. What cracks me up is the fat ugly straight men who get all anxious about being in the same room as a gay man, as if anyone would want their flabby arse anyway lol. I'm bisexual female, happily married to a hetero male but I freely admit that I love reading slash fiction, so hot..
