My therapist gave me this book about sexuality to read. There's a lot of interesting stuff in it, but it's loaded with too many statistics. For example, this book says that gay people are, like, ten times more likely to experience depression and suicidal thoughts. Gee, that makes me feel great. But it also had a reassuring section saying that you don't need to have sex to figure out your sexuality. Does a heterosexual guy need to fuck a girl to figure out if he's straight? No. That's basically the book's arguement. That makes me feel sooo much better. My virginity is something I plan on keeping for awhile.
This book also lists a ton of myths about gay people. One myth that I laughed at was that all gays want is sex, sex, and more sex. And nothing else. We could say the same thing about heterosexuals, so how the hell is that a fair assumption? Another myth is that lesbians are attracted to EVERY girl they see, and gay guys are attracted to EVERY guy they see. This is like saying a straight girl is attracted to EVERY guy she sees. The myths were very interesting to read.
Another thing I found interesting in this book was the part about the "gay spectrum." Apparently, there's a scale this dude named Alfred Kinsey designed that goes from 0 to 6. 0 is heterosexual and 6 is as gay as it gets. 3 is bisexual, as it falls in the middle of the scale. I don't really know how I would rate myself using this scale, and I'm not even sure I agree with putting a number on your sexuality.
There's a shat ton of other stuff in this here book. I can't wait to discuss it with my therapist this Thursday. We're gonna have a lot to talk about.
