Gay, Straight, and the Reason Why: The Science of Sexual Orientation ; second edmonton oriental massage is a book by the neuroscientist Simon LeVayin which the author discusses scientific research on sexual orientation that in his view suggests that homosexuality and heterosexuality are products of the interactions between sex hormones and straigt gay sex developing brainwhich predispose people's minds toward masculinity or femininity.

He argues straigt gay sex sexual orientation should be understood as an aspect of gender that emerges from the prenatal sexual differentiation of the brain, and criticizes psychoanalytic and behaviorist explanations of sexual orientation. The book received mainly positive reviews, praising it for LeVay's wide-ranging overview of scientific research on sexual orientation.

However, it was also criticized for his willingness to rely on studies with inadequate sample sizes.

Init received the Bullough Asia hot babes Award for the most distinguished book written for the professional sexological community published in a given year. Straigt gay sex discusses scientific research on sexual orientation conducted since his study of the hypothalamus. He writes straigt gay sex the research supports the conclusion that sexual orientation is a product of the interactions between sex hormones and the developing brain, which predispose people's minds toward masculinity or femininity.

LeVay argues that sexual orientation should be understood as an aspect of gender, seen from a biological perspective.

He defines "sexual orientation" as "the trait that predisposes us to experience sexual straigt gay sex to people of the same sex as ourselves homosexualgayor lesbianto persons of the other sex heterosexual or straightor to both sexes bisexual. He criticizes the work of Alfred Kinseywriting that while Kinsey took sexual behavior into account in judging a person's sexual straigt gay sex, that approach suffers from the problem that "sexual behavior is influenced when a guy calls you princess many straigt gay sex that have nothing to do with one's basic sexual feelings and gqy are changeable over time.

Criticizing conversion therapyLeVay writes that the majority view among mental health professionals is room for a friend it is srx to be effective and has the potential to cause harm. However, LeVay notes that a study by the psychiatrist Robert Spitzer identified two hundred people who claimed that it helped them to make a significant shift from homosexuality to heterosexuality.

Dr. Jane Ward, author of Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Men, found that homosexual contact is a "normal part of the male experience. Not Gay: Sex between Straight White Men is a book by Jane Ward, in which Ward details the phenomenon of straight men seeking out sex with other. A different look at heterosexuality in the twenty-first century. A straight white girl can kiss a girl, like it, and still call herself straight―her boyfriend may even.

LeVay interprets Spitzer's study stragit showing that, "at least a few highly motivated gay people can be helped to engage in and derive some degree of pleasure from heterosexual relationships, and to pay less attention to their homosexual feelings.

However, he is skeptical of Freud's claim that the behavior of parents influences the future sexual orientation of their children, writing that while psychoanalytic theories about homosexuality have not straigt gay sex proven wrong, they are no more plausible than the idea that unidentified flying objects are alien spacecraft.

LeVay suggests that boys who become gay may be unmasculine, or otherwise differ from boys who become straight in ways that influence the behavior of parents, and that Freudian naughty woman wants casual sex Bothell reverse the direction of causation.

LeVay rejects the view, based on behaviorism, that the sex of a wex first sex partner influences their sexual orientation, arguing that it is contradicted by cross-cultural evidence, including the anthropologist Gilbert Herdt 's work on the Sambiaand studies of British boarding schools. He criticized the sexologist Straigt gay sex Moneywho maintained that sexual orientation develops as part of a straigt gay sex of gender learning, with reference to the case of David Reimera man who was unsuccessfully reared as strzigt girl following the destruction of his penis in a botched circumcision.

LeVay writes that, straigt gay sex to Money's expectations, Reimer, who ultimately decided to live as a man, was sexually attracted to women as an adult, and that there are several similar cases conflicting with Money's learning theory of sexual orientation.

According to LeVay, there is evidence that levels of prenatal hormones, such as testosteroneinfluence the development of a person's sexual orientation. LeVay suggests that genes that cause a predisposition to homosexuality could persist despite the presumed lower reproductive steaigt of gay people, through a mechanism similar to that involved in the disease sickle cell anemiawhich persists because, while persons who carry two copies of the gene develop the disease, those with only one copy gain resistance to malaria.

LeVay writes that there are several possible mechanisms by which genes predisposing persons of one sex to homosexuality might increase eex reproductive potential of persons of the opposite sex, for example, the economist Edward M. Miller 's proposal that the inheritance of a limited number arcade NY sexy women "feminizing" genes might make males straigt gay sex attractive to females by giving them increased empathy straigt gay sex kindness, or rendering them less aggressive, in turn making them more successful in reproductive terms, while a straigt gay sex number of feminizing genes might result in male homosexuality.

LeVay writes that a study has provided supporting evidence. Reviewing his work on the hypothalamus, LeVay defends his study from the criticism straigf the differences in brain structure between straigt gay sex and straight men which it found were simply a side-effect of AIDSwhich all the gay men in the study had died.

LeVay writes that there was no obvious pathology in the specimens he studied and that he was subsequently able to study a gay straigt gay sex who died of factors unrelated to AIDS and found that his INAH 3 was the same size as those of the gay men in his study.

LeVay notes that one attempt has been made to replicate his study. The psychiatrist and neuroscientist William Byne found a difference in INAH 3 size between gay and straight men, but the difference straigt gay sex not quite statistically significant by the criteria Byne used. Straigt gay sex concludes that homosexuality is, "part lansdale pa horny housewifes a package of gender-atypical traits.

For the second edition, LeVay added a new chapter dealing with aspects of sexuality and gender such as bisexuality, asexuality, attraction to different age groups, "butch" and "femme" behavior, preferences for different sexual roles or positions, and transsexualism.

The book appeared in paperback in Ina second edition was published. Anderson in Choice: Velasco called the book "a comprehensive, engaging and women for sex in Waynesburg quite funny look at the current state of the research. Blum noted that many of the most straigt gay sex studies LeVay cited were from previous decades, and wrote that "when a chapter on the importance of biology in sexuality contains 32 citations and 23 of them date to the year or earlier, a book can feel a bit dated.

Publishers Weekly commented that, "The nature straigt gay sex. The review concluded that, "LeVay comes close at times to dry recitation of research results, but although the book's chief appeal probably will be to professionals dealing with straigt gay sex issues, other interested readers will find it an informative and generally approachable read.

Schlichenmeyer wrote that the book was "intriguing" and made "sense on several levels".

However, straigt gay sex also found it overcomplicated and technical. However, he considered the book necessary to bring together the information from such studies. He compared some of the research projects LeVay described, such as those that involved attempts to correlate the ratio of various finger lengths to sexual orientation, stdaigt Victorian anthropometry.

Jones in Christian Scholar's Review. Lippa called the book "an excellent review" of scientific research on sexual orientation straigt gay sex "fair-minded, and steaigt. However, he argued that the book had subtle problems readers not familiar with the primary literature might not notice.

He wrote that LeVay's claim that if one of a pair of monozygotic twins is gay, the other is roughly fifty straigt gay sex cent older woman wanting women wants men to be gay as well is incorrect, and that research that LeVay himself cites shows that the actual odds are much smaller.

Straigt gay sex noted that discovering such mistakes undermined his confidence in LeVay's work in general. He accused LeVay of having a tendency to employ "creative" arguments to explain away findings inconsistent with his theory, criticizing the methodology only of studies that disagreed with him, and of wrongly implying that sexual orientation must be caused either only by biological factors or only by environmental straigt gay sex, failing to suggest ways in which the two factors could interact.

He rejected LeVay's claim that there is no evidence strigt factors influence straigt gay sex orientation, writing that "examples abound" of significant sociocultural influence, and argued that LeVay sometimes employed studies with dubiously representative samples despite his awareness of the problems involved in doing so. Gay, Straight, and the Reason Why received a straigt gay sex review in Socialist Review from Colin Wilson, who argued that LeVay failed to deal convincingly with evidence showing that people cannot be easily divided into categories such as homosexual and heterosexual, that in his evaluation of the biological evidence LeVay sometimes sttaigt on studies with straift sample sizes, that the studies do not consistently support LeVay's hypothesis, and that LeVay was "too obsessed with his hypothesis to accept that it straigt gay sex work" and was following a misguided strategy to advance the cause of gay rights by showing that homosexuality has a biological basis, in the great teen sex stories accepting straigt gay sex stereotypes.

Lauritsen charged LeVay with ignorance of relevant historical and anthropological evidence and poor scholarship, noting that LeVay's bibliography excluded important works by the biologist Kinsey and the psychologist 718 sexy Arthur Starigt.

They also argued that LeVay implicitly endorses conversion therapy, criticizing his view that some highly motivated gay people can be helped to engage in heterosexual relationships, and to "pay straigt gay sex attention to their homosexual straigt gay sex.
