Mostly Straight: Sexual Fluidity among Men

We rated this book:


Over the past several years it has become more accepted to come out as LGBTQ. The stigma that was once attached to it is no longer as bad as it once was, especially when I was younger. But we still live in a world based on the dichotomy between straight and LGBTQ. There is, however, growing research into a category of sexuality that defies easy explanation since it does not fit neatly into one of our boxes, and that is someone who is mostly straight. Ritch Savin-Williams brings his research into this vastly understudied field and gives us a view into a world of men who identify as mostly straight but have feelings toward men at times, whether that is often or not that often. It points toward the idea that one can’t be readily identified within one neat category anymore. This is a fascinating book. Mr. Savin-Williams brings us detailed information about each person he has interviewed across his years of research and explores how things change over time. He explains that it might be time to stop thinking that sexual identity stops at any one time and recognize that it is constantly evolving and ever-changing. This is an important book for an ever-changing field.
