Why are men attracted to lesbians?

Think of it this way: in a lesbian clip there's no chance of the camera suddenly focusing on the guy for some inexplicable reason. Lots of (straight) guys find that to be a massive put-off when watching porn. They want to see the girl - they don't want to see a close-up of the guy's disgusting "ugnk ugnk UGNK" face while he's busy doing... stuff.

IllumInaTIma:
One beautiful lady=Good
Two beautiful ladies=Very Good
Two beautiful ladies loving each other=Very Very Good

For me, it's as simple as that.
However, by that logic, I'm genuinely curious if females find gays attractive.

I do indeed find gays attractive. For the basically the same reasons. Though I also have to add that straight porn is normally for men. You would think that wouldn't make a big difference, but it really really does. Female porn actresses are almost all gorgeous, while men normally just have to have a big penis and know how to use it. I mean really, this is what I get to look at...

I'll pass, thanks.

Well for one, I'm mostly into 2D Erotica. So I'm already strange.

But I only find lesbian stuff to be erotic under particular circumstances, like one domineering and one not acting completely submissive.

I think the poster who said it doubles the amount of breasts kind of won the thread.

For me i'm simply not interested in what the man's doing in pornography because i don't relate to him nor do i care or get turned on by him. I'm only interested in the woman so as far as i'm concerned guy's in porn are simply a waste of space. You may as well stick a woman in their place because it wastes fewer pixels.

Professor James:
I'm a straight man and I never really been turned on by 2 girls banging each other. Can someone explain the appeal? I guess it's because a lesbian will never be attracted to me or even a fantasy is why I'm not turned on.

Long Answer: It's more women to look at.

Short Answer: 1+1 = 2

And yes I am generalizing.

It's not complicated. Sex is hot, straight guys don't find men attractive so would rather not see a guy's dick their fantasy and there's double the hotness. Yes, it doesn't make a great deal of sense in reality, but it's far from the strangest, most nonsensical fetishes around.

I think a lot of people here are over thinking it... It's because one woman is hot. Two women banging is hotter.

It's not about closing your eyes and imagining your there, it's all about physical appeal. And two sexy women going at eachother is physically appealing because men like boobs 'n' stuff.

The one that always gets me is the close up. "Ooh yeah, now I'm seeing the back of a ballsack whacking off the bottom of an ass crack". Has anyone ever found that angle sexy? Look I don't know but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that what women and gay men like about men isn't their undercarriage.

It's a fantasy for straight males pretty much, that's why it's made.

Not my particular cup of tea when searching for videos of that nature, but I do find some lesbian scenes rather hot.

Captcha: hear hear. Well said captcha, well said.

I'll let you in on the sad, simple, disgusting nature of men: Boobs=Good. Therefore Boobs+Boobs=Great!!!!!

I wish I were making this up. Sadly I'm not.

Honestly, I think it's made out to be much more common than it really is.

I've personally never been at all attracted to images of lesbian sex, even if I find the women involved to be attractive individually. The strongest reaction I've ever had to lesbians in real life is 'oh, they make a really cute couple.'

I've actually heard of a study done on this, and one of their findings was that sperm motility increases when men watch two women having sex, even more than watching "straight" porn. Whether that study can be trusted, I don't know, but I thought it was interesting because it might indicate it being more than just a fetish, that there might be some biological reason behind men finding lesbian porn arousing.

Lesbian porn bores me. Except for extreme lesbian porn it's all foreplay, and I usually skip that part in straight porn.

The same reason women are attracted to gay men. Anyone who doesn't believe that this is a thing...One, stop being a dumbass, and two, look at any teenage fandom featuring more than one attractive male character. You will find a ton of evidence.

Even as a pansexual I have to admit...lesbians are hot. Might have to do with the fact that almost all men in pr0n are ugly or masculine. I prefer femininity over masculinity, except in women. Basically, I prefer feminine men, and either extreme and everything in between for women. (Yeah, I know. It's complicated.) But anyway, yeah, lesbians are hot.

We also need to find a non-offensive male term for a gay man, like lesbian for women. Why should gay women get a gender specific, non-offensive word for themselves?

I'm not attracted to real lesbians. Most lesbians in porn are not real lesbians, they're oversexed straight girls who don't mind doing it with another girl for money.

Otherwise, many guys do not like seeing penises so lesbian porn gets around this.

Personally I don't have a problem with penises but I don't like watching penetration. So lesbian porn, (if I even watch porn these days - I'm too old now), gets around that. When I was younger it was an interesting learning tool. Who knew better how to please a woman than a woman? They were the best to learn off. But most porn these days is pretty disgusting to me (comparable in my mind to Saw movies versus 70s horror films).

Some do, yes.
We had a few girls in school/uni that did.

They however found girl on girl very unappealing.

To each their own.

Twice the boobies and no other mans penis. Win win.

Because when straight people go at it, there's always a good side and a bad side. The good side is the woman (or man, if you're a woman, and the bad side is the man (or woman, if you're a woman). With lesbians, you get all the good stuff, i.e. boobs and whatnot, and less of the bad, i.e. cock. Really it makes sense.

I've heard from girls that they like an attractive pair of gay guys going at it, so go figure.

I heard that men actually produce more sperm when they see another man while ejaculating. Something about competitiveness, i'd imagine.

Like we're thinking, "I can out-sperm you!"

Why do girls find two guys having sex or making out hot? For exactly the same reason.
I think it's because two attractive women doing something sexual is attractive. That's why I like it.

That's interesting to me that one increases motility while the other increases volume. I wonder if MFF threesome porn does both simultaneously.

Dear Lord, how did we get on this subject, anyway? :)

I actually kind of wonder if this whole lesbian turn-on thing is overstated. After all, the vast majority of porn targeted towards straight guys involves straight pairings even when no actors are involved. It's entirely plausible that the guys with the lesbian turn-on are just a very loud minority with many guys who don't have the turn-on lying about it to fit in.

Kevlar Eater:
Dunno, but I've seen *real* lesbians kiss before irl, and to me, it's as appealing as two men or a straight couple locking lips -- disgusting.

So you just have an issue with kissing.

Delicious women making out or better. What's not to get? It is of course in the eye of the beholder.
But what I am concerned, lesbians are very beholding.

Norithics:

As for me? As a bisexual male, I love lesbians! Where it gets a little embarrassing, however, is the fact that I'm really only nominally interested in the sexual aspect. What I really, really love is lesbian fluff. Like the freckly, gregarious farmgirl holding hands with the bespectacled geek, that kind of thing. I don't know what it is, and it makes me feel like the mirror universe version of a slash-fanfiction writing yaoi fangirl, but. I dunno! I just really like it, it's insanely adorable and fills me with warm fuzzies.

I was going to try to explain it, but you've actually nailed it. While I'll admit I don't read or see softcore stuff usually (although I'd find it very cute likely), there's something romantic or cute about lesbians that straight/gay-male pornography just can't nail. Another example of what I mean is if you compare say disco music to women's music (yes, it's an actual genre). The former appealed to gay males and tended to be more overt and frisky in terms of mentality. Women's Music though, well, look at the well known track Fast Car by Tracy Chapman.

This isn't a song about getting laid, but rather about settling down elsewhere. About escaping with her partner to somewhere where they may escape into the city so they may live together. How I can probably relate to Norithics a bit more in terms of his love of "lesbian fluff" (his words, even if it's possible to take it the wrong way hideously), is how much I like the band S (which is a band with only one member, Jenn Ghetto who used to be in Carissa's Wierd). S songs sound so heart-felt and deep, especially with the raw sound she gives to her work.

While I can't confidentially say S is part of the women's music genre, since I feel guilty about attaching labels that the artist may disagree with, it does share a lot of similarities with the genre. Just the fact it seems to be written by a female for another female, as strange as it is, makes it even more romantic and, yet, sad than if a male was even remotely a part of the equation.

Two possible reasons; because twice a good thing is double the fun,
or because the guy doesn't get off to the sight of dicks.

Personally I'm in the latter category.

You like women. You like sex. Put two together. Done. I'm not sure there's much more to it.

Shadowstar38:
Because watching people bang is hot, and the breast ratio doubles.

Not exactly the way I would phrase it, but yeah, double the body part(s) that makes a straight man attracted to a woman is a definite turn on. Also, there's the fantasy that in the midst of this lesbian love session, a man can jump in and join them.

Also, great profile pic.

Zombie Sodomy:
Lesbian porn bores me. Except for extreme lesbian porn it's all foreplay, and I usually skip that part in straight porn.

And there is my reason for not liking lesbian porn. Sure I can work with it, but I'd rather see the actual action. If simple adding of boobs and vaginas betters the quality of porn for hetero men, then lesbian orgys should be the only product that is selling for hetero men.

edit: But at the end of a day, we are talking about sexual preferences and trying to reason with that is a task doomed to fail. Something gets you on, it gets you on. This one can be conveniently given an easy answer by those who like it, but try doing that with necrophilia.

Well, for me, I'm not really...Well, I don't know how to word this without someone claiming I'm a troll, and instantly getting banned for not supporting trans-fat genderqueen bi-sexual historians in tight outfits.

But, really, the idea of two people having a homosexual realtionship is something that deeply disturbs me. While I would NEVER go and try to hurt someone's feelings on this matter, I still would prefer if they just stayed away from me, and I will (And do) likewise with them. My opinion isn't special, and it may not be right, but in my eyes it is, and it IS my opinion. I'm heavily turned off by watching two lesbians go at it. Just as a statement, I'm pretty sure that I'd be even more turned off by two dudes.

Sorry to anyone who flings both ways or one way, I don't mean to offend. You guys are cool, do what you do, and I'll do what I do.

I don't know, I'm attracted to women and not men and lesbian porn is like double the woman and none of the dude... Although I do enjoy it I feel it loses a lot when you think about the fact that it's aimed at guys and few, if any, lesbians actually make love like that...

because we want what we can't have?

Professor James:

I'm with you, honestly.

Because lesbians are women - and heterosexual men are attracted to women...

Even if it's not for you, surely the logic is quite clear?

The same reason that most countries that ban homosexual marriage and male homosexuality, it's perfectly legal for lesbian behavior, especially if a man has multiple wives.

There is the sexual attraction to two women getting it on, the double boob ratio I believe was mention, and the fact the two women are performing sexual acts on each other for the dominating man's entertainment.

Apologies to Kelis.

Possible reasons:

1) No strange penis to think about and/or view.
-Quite a few straight men don't like seeing another man's penis, and I'm betting that there's also a great deal of disguised envy at porn penii - 7 inch, 8 inch, 9 inch, longer and wider penii than the average guy, it sometimes takes a bit of work to imagine that the 12in Dong From Hell is actually My Dong in Her Mouth because... my god that's a huge Dong. I mean, it's a huge dong. It's just... it's like Watchmen all over again, man. There's just giant Dongs everywhere, man.

2) A sense of strange empathy; straight men love the female body, so seeing someone else appreciate it in the way straight men do creates a sort of bond.
-Perhaps only in the way that someone will feel a bond with me when I post "I love Ashleigh Brilliant!" and they think "OMG! Someone else knows about that guy!". It's not a deep and serious connection but it's a positive starting place. And yes, whoever is going "OMG! Someone else knows about that guy!", we've been through a lot together, and most of it was your fault.

3) More women to enjoy at once. Up to a point.
-It's like a buffet of women. One woman is like a steak - awesome. But after a while even steak gets boring. Two women is like having steak AND portabello mushrooms - both great, having a bit of one then going back to have a bit of the other makes both better. Three women is starting to get a bit cramped because I'm only one man, ladies, and my partner and I need to have SOME time to rest in between our 45 second spurts of furious squelching noises. And with three of you, one will be bored while we're recovering. That's why two is great, but three is one too many; while we're recovering you two can entertain yourselves, maybe give each other orgasms (you really need to teach me how to do that. I mean, I keep trying but you say "It takes more than a minute to bring me off." which is just... it's like trying to imagine what it's like to eat ice cream in space, man. Sure, it's possible, and lots of guys have done it. But they all had like a lifetime of training, special equipment, a whole organization dedicated to getting them into space to eat ice cream, and I'm just a guy working as a labourer, so how can you expect ME to last long enough to bring you off? I mean... wait, what was the question again?

4) An ultimate male fantasy: Conversion Via Penis.
-My Dong is so powerful that it turns Lesbians into (My) Penis Worshiping Women. Girls may like other girls as much as I do, but when My Dong enters the room, THAT'S what the girls want, yo. My Dong brings all the Lesbians out of the bush and they're like "It's better than boob!" Damn right it's better than boob. I can teach you, and I won't even charge!

5) Fantasies are often about things we can't have.
-Most guys are fantastically lucky to get one woman to like them enough to have sex with them. We also know that the chance of there being two women who like us enough to have sex with us at the same time is damn near impossible, unless we're paying a rather large sum of money. So we fantasize about the things we can't have. Lesbians. Anal sex. Facials. Being deep throated. Her swallowing. Public. Bondage. Kinky stuff - like European stuff. Whole Chicken stuff - like Japanese stuff. Living Turducken Stuff - German stuff. (Little known fact: Up until OSX, if you typed "German" into a porn search engine on a Macintosh the computer would say "That is not available on this Safari." and would bring up a page of clinical psychologists in your area.)
