If you’re a woman reading this, chances are you’re a bisexual or a lesbian. Science says so – so it has to be true. If you’re a man reading this, I can finally explain why some seemingly promising first dates never worked out for you. The answer, so we’re told, to both is simple: most women are bisexual, or lesbians.
A study has found that most women who say they are straight are in fact aroused by videos of both naked men and naked women. The study, led by Dr Gerulf Rieger from the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex, involved 345 women whose responses to being shown videos of naked men and women were analysed.
The results, which were based on elements such as whether their pupils dilated in response to sexual stimuli, showed that 82% of the women tested were aroused by both sexes.
Dr Rieger said: “Even though the majority of women identify as straight, our research clearly demonstrates that when it comes to what turns them on, they are either bisexual or gay, but never straight.”
