Can Straight Men Be “Converted”?
“If a guy sleeps with another man, then he’s not straight.”
I’ve always shuddered when people subscribe to this bullshit logic. Hard dicks are hard dicks, and friction is friction! Things happen. If I got drunk tonight, hooked up with a chick and blew my load, would I be any less gay tomorrow morning? Would I be required to identify as bisexual based on that singular experience? Nope! I’d still want to bury my face in hairy man asses… So why can’t we accept that some straight men have or have had sex with other men?
We touched upon this topic briefly in last week’s Straight Guys Are Gay column, but today we’re going to specifically focus on the concept of “conversion”. I had a friend back in New York who swore up and down that he turned a married lawyer into a full-fledged gay man. The guy had been coming over and fucking him regularly. Their sex was allegedly so amazing that he talked about leaving his wife, and he did, but not for my friend.
You see, at some point, the lawyer disappeared and stopped responding to my friend’s e-mails for nearly a year. I tried to reason with him that he probably felt guilty about cheating on his wife, but I was very, very wrong about that… We were out at a bar one night, and my friend spotted his old fuck buddy grinding his ass against some muscle bear’s crotch. When he made an attempt to go talk to him, the pair quickly made a beeline for the exit.
He received an e-mail from the lawyer a few days later, explaining that he just got a divorce and started seeing someone else. My friend obviously felt betrayed by this knowledge—considering he was supposed to be that “someone else”—but he also took some strange pride in “transforming” this buttoned-up straight guy into a total cock slut.
But did he actually do anything? Or were the lawyer’s desires there all along, buried under a heaping pile of societal expectations, religious repression and other baggage? This is a very particular example, but what do you think overall—is it possible, even in the slightest sense, that a straight man could be “converted” by a homosexual experience?
