Here's an honest question that you should be able without reading anything into the question (i.e. no flaming....) I'm not interested in getting anyone angry or feeling threatened or challenged, instead I'm creating a spot what this board is known for: some great conversation and thoughful self-consideration as our societal standards and norms are changing. Are you 100% straight because you can't picture yourself anything less than 100% heterosexual- or enjoying your maleness in privacy with a trusted buddy, or whatever... or are you 100% straight because you TRIED something, did something, watched something, etc that 'fixed' your decision to your current self definition? Are there any guys on the board that once had an open minded feeling towards exploring their personal growth- took a risk, made a choice, but decided that they best belonged with a 100% number for themselves? I think it might be very interesting and actually cool for some guys here to share what they have experienced and what factors cause some of our buddies on the board to define themselves as "alpha males..." There's lots of guys on the board that are always advocates of 'do what feels right' and others who feel that any sort of guy-guy contact is, or should be, forbidden. Most guys fall somewhere in between, or are at least pretty even-keeled about letting his fellow buddy's cock get some pleasure in other ways than he'd pursue himself. For the most part, I think guys on the board are fairly open-minded... but those who represent a black and white, no margin of error, completely MF exclusive viewpoint are normally balls-to-the-wall protective of defending their more focused mindset, and our archive is filled with lots of anger and bile- and lots of banned members. So let's hear from these guys in a safe thread where the pressure is off, and your views are securely respected as part of the whole that makes up the spectrum of ideas that are represented on the board. Specifically, what factors have shaped you to define yourself as 100% heterosexual? On a board that unabashedly nurtures the broader and fluid aspects of human sexuality, why do you feel you represent the extreme end of the measuring stick and not somewhere along the line? Looking forward to some well-expressed and thoughtful responses from many of our bros that usually are shut down to very short and oversimplified comments and remarks... and guys let's let them share without shame or fear that they will get cold cocked for what they say!
