Q: I'm a female who is into gay male porn. I love watching attractive men having sex. But when I told my friend my viewing habits she thought it was really weird. Why is it ok for straight men to watch lesbian sex, but its not ok for straight women to watch gay sex?
A: It's perfectly normal for a straight woman to enjoy watching gay men having sex. After all, if you're attracted to men, then why wouldn't you be aroused watching two men having sex?
This is actually very common in non-Western cultures. For example, in Japan, gay-male love stories (known as "yaoi") are very common among popular books, comic books (manga) and movies. The target audience for these stories are straight women. It's also becoming more common for straight women in the U.S. to enjoy these types of stories as well (check out this Cosmo article on the topic). So, it looks like you're just ahead of the cultural curve. :)
