Homosexuality.....inherited trait or state of mind?


Personally I think sexuality is partly inherited and partly due to state of mind.
In the past there was a lot of research done into ways that gay men could be "Straightened out". Perhaps it can be done, perhaps not. I think it's like recovering from mental trauma, abuse, accidents and madness. The psychotherapy teaches the sufferer to mask the symptoms of their state from the rest of the world.

Personally I see nothing wrong with people following their sexual instincts, gay or straight. The problem is that religion and social stigma get in the way of the individual feeling comfortable with who and what they are.

A lot of the ignorance goes back to the schools where kids get tauught about sex and sexual health. The condom is introduced with some general advice on best practice but anal sex, frottage, kissing, oral sex and masturbation are not touched on. The unknown leads to misconceptions, embarasement and guilt. All for nothing.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

You must have had a lot of psychotherapy.

pumpitup52 Hi, no I've been lucky enough to have avoided therapists so far. However I know wuite a few people with mental issues and this is what I've learnt from them.
