Sex Young America’s Entrepreneurial Spirit
posted by February 1 at 12:30 PMon
Kris and Jeff, a young gay couple living in New England, have started selling their used underwear via tubes on the Internet dedicated to used-underwear sales. Their site is called, um, TwinkUndies.com. Kris and Jeff are offering their undies and the undies of various jock friends—gay and straight—for the low, low price of $29.99 for boxer, briefs, or bikinis, or $39.99 for boxer-briefs. The couple hopes to expand into a growing niche and, in my opinion, mystifying niche in the amateur gay male porn market: straight boys doing it with their gay friends.
“I think the term straight is misleading,” said Jeff, via email, when I asked him why his straight friends would be willing to appear in porn with him. “I think there have been studies done that show that most people are actually bisexual, and sexuality actually fluctuates throughout one’s life…. So doing gay porn isn’t anything that is strictly going against the ‘straight’ guy’s ‘being,’ it’s more just a consideration of money and whether or not they are comfortable doing these things in front of other people and not just inside their minds.”
Recent studies have shown that sexuality fluctuates throughout one’s life—if one is a woman. Male sexuality tends to be more fixed. But sites like Sean Cody, et al, are proof that America is pumping out a seemingly unlimited supply of young straight/straight-identified men willing to engage in gay sex—and, unlike those grim gay-for-pay porn stars of the past, these guys seem to enjoy it. Perhaps because, as this study found, more young straight men don’t see one or two gay sexual experiences as somehow disqualifying them from identifying as straight.
