STRAIGHT OR MOSTLY STRAIGHT

-

If you are a straight dude who occasional­ly experience­s same-sex attraction­s or interactio­ns, you’re not alone. Ritch C. Savin-Williams, a professor of developmen­tal psychology at Cornell University outlines this sexual identity in his book, Mostly Straight: Sexual

Fluidity Among Men. According to his research, there are plenty of men who are not 100 percent straight, but don’t consider themselves gay or bi either. A poll conducted by the US government between 2011 and 2013 found that 6 percent of men between 18 and 24 years old consider themselves “mostly straight.” Savin-Williams argues that millennial­s are more open-minded about sexuality and gender than older folks. He believes that young men are more likely to embrace the “mostly straight” label, because they “are secure in their heterosexu­ality yet remain aware of their potential to experience far more.”
