A website published an article that talks about a very weird study that claims straight men kiss and cuddle each other. The study targeted only 30 British undergraduate students to see what straight men do with their friends. The small study revealed that most of the men participating in the study had admitted to kissing or cuddling with their friends. What the study does not seem to suggest is that these men are probably gay.
Straight men don't usually kiss or cuddle their friends, so the men that participated in the study must be gay or bi. When a man kisses another man, that's basically the definition of being gay or bi. So there, that's a thing you know.
The study was published in "Sex Roles: A Journal of Research" and asked a series of in-depth questions to 30 British undergraduate sport students to try and discover what straight men really get up to with their best friends." The article on Attitude's website suggests that heterosexual men have no problem forming close bonds with their male friends. That's called being "bros" or being "friends" and we didn't need a study on that part.
Then the website talks about the concept of "bromance" and it's listed as “someone who is literally there for you all the time” and “will always be there to back you up if you need it,” according to a researched named Adam White.
So basically, every guy who has really good guy friends is in a bromance. Guys who back each other up, guys who talk about anything, and guys who are just really good friends - that's all a bromance, right? What about soldiers in the military who back each other up, talk, and support each other? Are they all in a bromance too? Are they all hooking up when the moon goes down? What's going on here? Can't guys be friends without touching each other? Yes, mostly, but this study picked 30 British guys who are in college. As you know, most people in college nowadays can't figure out their own gender or fold a piece of paper in half, so to imagine the beta males groping each other out of fun is no big shock. It's not like they're doing anything else at college.
The website reported more guy on guy information about the study.
Even more interestingly, all but one of the men asked said that they regularly engaged in “non-sexual physical intimacy,” such as kissing, cuddling, and spooning with their best friend.
“All but one of the men interviewed engaged in cuddling and spooning their bromances, and most had kissed their bromances,” said White. “They said things like: ‘You can lie in bed with your bromance, have a cuddle and just talk.’”
You know guys, you could also play video games, eat food, talk about girls, or do almost anything together that doesn't involve giving each other reach-arounds in your dorm.
It's OK for people to be gay if they want, but don't tell us straight guys are walking around kissing each other. That's the gay part about being gay.
Do you know any straight men who lounge around touching each other?
Yeah, they're gay.
