Sounds like platonic love to me.  I'm not sure what you're getting at here.

On the other side... you fall in love with a person, not counting his or her sex. So I can only say that I've lived like a hetero for many years now, but I don't know what happens the next time. And that's all right with me.

Uh, Dominic, if you look at men in general and penises in particular, and you aren't even vaguely attracted to the idea of having sex with them, you can forego the experiment.  You can tell that you aren't gay.

Judging someone for what they do in bed with another consenting adult is bad no matter whether you've tried the activity or not.  If I had sex with another guy and decided that it made me feel grossed out and horrible inside, I could then condemn all gay people as disgusting and try to outlaw such a horrible practice, according to your argument.

That's a really, really bad argument.

I agree with Susan, you know if you're gay or not without having to try the experiment. I'm pretty sure I'm heterosexual but just in case I tried having sex with gay men twice. I was proved right, although there may be a slightly feminine side to me. It may be true that some men are substantially gay but because of their upbringing they suppress their feelings. The resulting state of cognitive dissonance is probably not very good for them and/or those around them.

Comment by Susan Stanko on June 7, 2016 at 7:51am

That is a horrible argument.  You don't to have sex to know what type of person you are attracted to.

A very Happy Birthday, Terry. I know I am a day late; however, I send you my warmest regards. 

I want to say a special thank you for your books; they are excellent reads: 

The Secrets of the Avebury Stones: Britain's Greatest Megalithic Temple

and 

Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice

I look forward to and will be watching Amazon for your forthcoming book.
