On a scale of one to 10, with one being “completely straight” and 10 being “completely gay,” what number are you?

The answer might seem obvious to some. “I’m a one, absolutely!” “I’m a 10, of course!” But “Between the Shades,” a documentary released Tuesday on iTunes, suggests that human sexuality is far more nuanced than labels or even a linear scale can capture.

Jill Salvino, the film’s director, created the documentary from more than 50 interviews with people representing a variety of sexual orientations, ages and races. The film includes parents and their adult children, singles and couples, and people who identify as gay, straight, lesbian, trans, intersex, queer and gender nonbinary.

Among those in the film who were asked the question, “How gay are you?” nobody answered one or 10. Most fell somewhere in between, although one person ignored the scale entirely.

“The film is about love, at the end of the day,” said Ms. Salvino, an Emmy-winning filmmaker who lives in New York. “It’s about what labels a life. It’s about how we think of ourselves, what we call ourselves, what other people call us and where we feel comfortable.”

Since watching the film, I’ve asked the question “How gay are you?” or “How straight are you?” to many of my friends, starting some interesting dinner conversations. But it’s a conversation that feels right for the times in which we live.

Oh geez, I’m a big swishy poof. I’m as gay as Liberace’s sequined platform boots.  Lol! 

Actually, I find these categories limiting and annoying. There is nothing obviously “gay” about me, yet I love sucking ladyboy cock and getting fucked in the ass by ladyboys. I have also found that over the years, as I have become more accepting of my proclivities, that I also like cute, and feminine Asian boys. 

Of course, I am also attracted to females. Though, honestly, I prefer ladyboys/femboys.

Damn, that’s really a hard one to answer. When I first ventured into the lady boy world, I considered myself 110% straight, and remember wondering why all of you guys talked about watching shemale porn, I just couldn’t get into it. Now, I would say that a good 60 to 70% of the porn I watch is trans with even a bit of gay porn in the mix. 

I guess I’d still rate myself about 75% straight, although it’s a pretty crooked sort of straight if you know what I mean.

I like them too maybe they are forbidden fruit and also because they are rare IMO as it is maybe only one out of a hundred like that.  Mincers who could be pretty ladyboys if they wanted to go that route.   I guess the Thais think these mincers are ladyboys.

Indeed, the transgressive element is major turn on for me as well with all this ladyboy business. It feels naughty and sexy in just the right way-so hot.

I'm straight. End of! I'm thoroughly turned off by all the trappings of masculinity ... except a cock :confused0089: but body or facial hair, beer bellies, male pattern baldness, big biceps, strong forearms, etc, etc, make my cock recoil in disgust. Also, if one has the desire to have one's rectum pumped full of spunk like a cream doughnut, then ...well ...difficult to square that with heterosexual behaviour.  But when it's a sexy young ladyboy doing the pumping ... well ... not guilty m'lord.

 

None of us are gay. There are proper gay websites for that kind of thing ... so I've been told :unsure:

What a brilliant answer to the gay question. I agree. None of us are gay. But as you said "... well ...". Definitely not guilty! (in my mind anyway).

I was not sure where to post this, but I figure since this thread has a gay theme . . .

So, I recently put up my profile on Grindr, again. Have been off the damn thing for years.  In case you din’t know, Grindr is a “gay” hookup site. Beside the usual gay males, they also have T-girls, femboys, CDs, and fem twinks on there, which are the types I am looking for. I actually managed to get laid by Filipino ladyboy that I met on there a couple of years ago. 

Anyway, even though I stated my preferences very clearly in my profile, I still get regular gay dudes contacting me from there. I find this most annoying. I guess it’s what I gotta put up with till I can find what I am looking for.

Wondering if any of you guys know of any good hookup apps where you can meet “some of ours” here in the US.

Guess I’m not such a huge fag after all. Pulled the plug on that stupid Grindr profile, and I have a date with an actual female this weekend. I feel so butch! 

Though, I may try Grindr the next time I visit Thailand.

When I want a real gg I think of Pic 1:man_in_love:

........

When I want a boy I think of Pic 2 :winking0023:

Fortunately I have had the pleasure of the latter a few times :spiteful:

So how 'gay' am I ? :biggrin:

I was always shit at Countdown. No wonder. Fucking distractions like that, and Carl Vord back in her prime. Always with the short skirts too.

I have always considered my self as straight. Very straight. I am definitely atracted to feminine energy and beauty.

But as I get older, I can't say that I can be classified as straight because my attraction ranges in variety. And I like adventure and doing seedy things and the convenience of sex with those having the sexual appetite of males.

I love women. But also somethings of women are boring to me now, or even not attractive (like nagging).

Ladyboys are more exciting to me than women. Although its primarily sexual and not long term.

Femboys are hot. So are feminine traps. Currently I'm into femboys more than ladyboys.

Asian feminine twinks can also turn me on for porn. Not as much in real life.

And I've watched gay porn before.

 

I can move up and down this spectrum depending on my mood. I think a big part of it is the novelty. If I experience a lot of one thing, I want to move to something new.

 

So on a scale of 1 being totally straight and 10 being totally gay, I would say today I am a 4, yet 10 and 20 years ago, I was more like a 2. I just like to explore and try new things.

I watch a little porn. How much is a little you ask?. Well not every day, and every so often I will look at gg porn. It just does not have that spark that LB porn does. The good ones I mean!..

LB's being born males, do seem to know which buttons to push. I do have a problem with what I class as over weight in both types. The ultimate is a LB with just a small amount of ab showing. 

Whether they have boobs or not does not bother me, just as long as they are sexy. Nothing worse that those that just lay on their backs waiting for it..

A bad boob job is a turn off for me. Better off without than a lot I have seen. How these boob doctors lay straight in bed at night puzzles me!.

Also phimosis is a turnoff on a LB.

All in all I would say I am a 3 or 4 on Sith's scale. I still look at good looking gg's, but as a sexual challenge the LB's have it.

I've tested myself by watching gay porn, just to see if I responded to it. Answer is not really; sometimes I'm a bit intrigued by it but never turned on. It's the feminine form and behaviour which turns me on. I guess that's nonsense when with a lb and there's two cocks and bum holes at play, but I actually do prefer the very girly lbs. Amazons and the more dominant lbs rather scare me off. And I much prefer the feel of pussy to arse.

Why lbs at all then? It's their more overt and aggressive sexual nature; the fact that their libidos match ours. Too many GGs seem to either dislike sex (perhaps just with me - haha), or they're going through the motions with it, or genuinely want to please you but aren't much enjoying it themselves. Some of course go off like firecrackers, but more the exception than the rule. Yet nearly all of the time a lb will get horny with you. It's not you - It's the idea of having sex (a very male behaviour). Horny bitches!

I prefer women but I also prefer lb sex, if that makes any sense ... It's simply a lot more exciting. (On Sith's scale I put myself at 2.5 !)
