Don't want to be gay
Posted on: 08/28/2008
i am gay but i dont want to be. i look at gay porno and i masterbate while looking at it. will i be gay forever?
Being a teenage boy is a confusing time because of all the physical changes going on in your body during this time. Many of those changes are related to your sexuality and sexual interests. Looking at gay porn can be one way that you are able to explore your sexual fantasies and become more familiar with your sexual desires. Sometimes during the teen years people experiment sexually with others of the same sex and find that it is not something that interests them over time. Other times
people learn that they truly are attracted to others of their own sex
and they can have a lifetime of satisfying, loving relationships.
Because you feel you don't want to be gay, it might be useful to find a
trusted adult such as a teacher, counselor or family member that you can
talk to about your feelings.
