And also Mr Wilson, how can desensitisation lead to for straight males to seek out gay porn and enjoy full on homosexual sex, if they are not already attracted to the same sex?
My thoughts -
As you have read desensitization leads to tolerance, which is the need for greater stimulation. So in a general manner, many users seek out more stimulation by moving into new genres. This I think we can at least theoretically agree upon. In a survey, about 70% of nofappers say that is what occurred to them
So the question becomes, what makes anyone choose one genre over another? From the thousands of accounts, many users move through many genres, But the answer may lie in what Ogi Ogas observed - that TS porn contains two set of cues that when combined are quite appealing to the straight male - a penis and a feminine body. See his Google talk.
Add to this unique combination of TS cues, the extreme novelty (TS doesn't exist in nature), and anxiety from watching TS porn. Both novelty and anxiety increase dopamine and sexual excitement. Thus, a desensitized brain responds to a jolt of dopamine, and starts to rewire to the new stimulus. Again, we must acknowledge that straight men are the consumers of TS porn.
What I have observed is three general patterns with gay/TS porn -
1) guys who are only hooked on TS porn
2) guys who start on on TS porn and mix in gay porn
3) guys with HOCD that may use primarily gay porn
Those with HOCD are in their own class as constant checking is the real problem.
Viewing this from a broader context, it's clear that straight men are the consumers of TS porn, and Ogi Ogas puts forth his theory as to why. Maybe most guys are OK with their TS porn use. Maybe it only becomes a problem when a guy can no longer get excited by other porn or by a real partner. Or maybe it only becomes a problem when they are addicted and cannot stop. In other words, watching TS porn may not be perceived as much of a problem for most porn users. Maybe it only becomes a problem when sexual issues and addiction enter the picture.
As for enjoying full on homosexual sex:
Just guessing but I suspect that the percentage of guys who move from transsexual porn to gay encounters is rather small. Seen very little of this occurring. If a TS porn user acts out, it is usually with a transsexual, not a gay man.
One explanation, is yours - that they are bisexual. Which is possible.
Another is simply sexual conditioning: years of sexual arousal through porn conditions the brain to get off to a specific stimulus. Again, we see this with all sorts of fetishes created by porn. Created because these fetishes simply fade through rebooting. As animal experiments have proved, one can condition animals to become sexually aroused by the smell of death and by other males - very quickly and easily.
YBOP simply asks that people be open to the existent of porn use conditioning sexual tastes - especially during adolescence. Plenty of evidence for that concept.
