    Do these two terms mean exactly the same thing? Just wondering.

    You're probably going to get varying opinions on this... here's my interpretation:


    Straight = straight.

    Str8 = Says he's straight, but is secretly gay/bi and can't admit to it. (this different from "closeted" because this also refers to guys who are presumed to be gay when they might just be effeminate straight men) or refers to masculine gay guys.

    I think they're synonymous. The former is just textspeak.

    I think there is no hidden meaning, I just think that we are so used to the guys who say they are 'str8' to also profess interest in men whether it be sex or just 'comparing.' If I were to tally the guys who have PM'd me about comparing/etc, I would say like 80% of them used str8 instead of straight (out of the ones who identified as straight/str8 of course).

    straight - heterosexual
    st8 - heterosexual in txt speak. used on the net for dudes with curious leanings unexplored or strictly confined to camming/flirting online.
    merrily forward - can't even say straight :tongue1:

    On this site...

    Straight = Heterosexual

    "Str8" = (Typically) Gay/bisexual in denial, or in the closet.

    Wow I had always thought the two meant the same thing. I figured str8 was just shorter for straight like l8=late. Oh well lol.

    There's also Bii - that's someone who's basically asexual because they're addicted to video games.

    straight = heterosexual
    str8 = heterosexual
    str8-acting = self-loathing homosexual

    Then there are the ones who say they're "st8".
    Those are the gays guys who can't type.
