Oh no! My eyes are constantly getting googly - I must be everything...Why do we have such determination and unyielding passion by researchers to make the whole world join the gaiety club? Is it that these scientists get a woody holding large test tubes and want to normalize this obsession they have with penis like objects? Why is important? I don't get it- Yah I am an old guy from another era and all I remember about the gaiety club was - They were on one side of the street and we were on the other...They did not attempt to justify what they did...they just carried on doing what they do- and we breeders just turned that other way after having a look at what we thought were freaks....so what...No one bothered them...so why do some constantly bother us?

This whole sexual thing was private at one time- as sex in any form should be. Straights who are fixated on public displays of sexuality should get back into the closet- as should the ones on the other side of the street- My body is private property..and their bodies are private property. What we all do with our bodies is private- Why this sudden movement to make everything intimate and private- public?

Measuring pupil dilation is a strong indicator of whether a person is straight, gay or bisexual. - latimes.com
Despite the fact that this is supposed an new and improved study, it simply confirms findings that were made decades and decades ago.

They eyes on the over all look different. Sometimes you will see a gay male making eye contact..if they don't see that look they quickly turn away. Not to sound like a prick- I always found it intrusive and irritating when a gay looks me in the eye hoping that I would be of the same orientation... They assume for certain reasons that a male is gay...but quickly figure out they are wrong... also- I have seen another kind of look- In the old days I would pass by a gay bar...and see young male prostitutes - The look they had was one of an abused child.
Not to be a prick but I don't appreciate the egotistical condescending attitude.

Gay guys look into everyone's eyes just like ALL human beings to see IF they are a threat or not and it's simply human nature to make eye contact.

I suggest "you get over yourself".

Answering the thread more specifically penile tumescence is the BEST indicator of sexual orientation as one is shown erotic stimuli...NOT dilated pupils.

Phallometry has been shown to distinguish gay men from straight men.[18][19][20]

Wouldn't that only work on half the population?
