Note, I'm putting this in the biology forum because there is no "sexology" forum. Also, I'm using this site (a science site) because I am not just looking for the reasons that you, personally, like lesbians, but rather, the scientific reason why they're so popular on a general level.

Think about it: Why do men enjoy homosexual porn of the opposite sex, but that same fetish is not near as widespread among women? How, exactly, does testosterone accomplish one thing, but estrogen does not accomplish the exact opposite?

Most guys give the reason of "twice the fun" for why they like lesbians, but that logic does not work with women liking gay men.

It is the job of scientists to inquire as to why lesbians are so popular among the sex they aren't attracted to, yet that does not work vice versa.

Why is that?

Personally, I think it's highly cultural, not biological.

But if there is a biological component, the "twice the fun" response would have some reasoning behind it when you consider it's the male of the species who is typically more polygomous/permiscuous. So it might be that lesbians - or rather bisexual women - would be more open to a polygomous relationship than heterosexual ones.

Perhaps watching a man have sex with a woman will cause jealousy or a negative response in the male watching the pornography. As such, the male will like lesbian pornography more than male-female pornography.

Furthermore, I've read and heard that pornography attempts to remove the face of the male most of the time in order to give the male viewer the impression that he is the one in the scene with the woman.


This would more than likely be better in the psychology board.

most men want to be in "charge" or control things(me included), so it makes sense when a man does not want see another man have what he has. ( having sex)

A woman only needs 1 man to become pregnant... but 1 man can make many women pregnant (unless they're very serious about being lesbian, and don't allow men near them... but the porn lesbians don't tend to be very strict).

Just my 2 cents.

Actually, a lot of girls like reading homosexual porn of the opposite sex - "slash fiction". It's a genre written almost entirely by women on the internet. As for men liking lesbians - I'd say the reasons differ among them, but someone I asked replied that it stimulated him more than heterosexual porn.

Given that the percentage of heterosexual men outstrips men of any other sexuality, women are valued in porn. Heterosexual men don't like looking at other dudes' penises. Hence, lesbian porn seems to be liked the most.

Men are more visual; women, not as much. Women prefer emotions and imagination. Thus there is more literary erotica geared to women.

As studies have shown, many homophobic men are secretly experiencing their own homosexual desires, and they attempt to hide it behind a wall of antipathy for gay men.


Being a man who, at 18, expressed many homophobic opinions, it ought not surprise anyone that at 30 I came out as gay. Coinciding with my homophobic rants in my youth was the opinion that lesbians were hot, and me and my other friends routinely talked about the desire to have a sexual experiences with a couple of females; the idea of two guys and a girl was always castigated as "gay".


The more I've learned about psychology and human sexuality, the more I've come to the conclusion that men, in particular, young men, use the fantasy of two lesbians in order to avoid the hidden fascination they have with other men.  In short, they're projecting their own deep seated fears about sexuality onto women as a defensive mechanism.

Just a point: The popular conception of testosterone and estrogen as the "male" and "female" hormones responsible for all differences between the sexes is a wild mischaracrerization.

They are both present in both sexes and do not do the same thing (or correspondingly opposite thing) for each sex.
