Gay Conversion “Therapy”

milkboys News & Opinions 7 Comments

Conversion therapy is the practice of “curing” gay people by trying to turn them straight through counselling and lifestyle restrictions. At the Journey into Manhood program, men pay more than $600 to attend a weekend retreat where they participate in exercises and activities the staff members claim will help them battle their same-sex ­orientation. The only qualification to become a staff member is to have successfully completed the program.

The report meets with the founder of reparative therapy, Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, who is illegally practising on minors in the State of California, and investigates the controversial legal battle to fight conversion therapy for individuals under 18 years of age.

It also attends the annual Gay Christian Network Conference and features interviews with former “ex-gay” leaders including John Smid of Love in Action, who is now married to his gay partner, and hears the gruelling stories of the individuals who have survived this brutal practice.

  1. On a bar graph of human sexuality, with 100% gay at one end and 100% straight at the other, probably 9 out of 10 or more fall somewhere between those ends. As a young teenager, all but 2 of the dozen boys I jerked-off and 69ed with ended up “straight” even though we all had a good time when we were sexperimenting with each other. And almost all of the gay men I’ve been conversant with have fucked their share of women, me included. (OK, I’m coming out – I like pussy. A lot.)

    The only real sexual minorities are those few inhabiting either of the extreme ends of the scale. There are two intrinsic aspects to the human psyche – we are spiritual beings and we are sexual beings. That’s it.

    Gay men go to bed with women out of curiosity, social convention, and in response to the instinctive urge to procreate. And pretty much all of them have done it. I did – have 2 kids. Straight men take that walk on the wild side out of curiosity, or just seeking intimacy and orgasms without involvement. Seriously, luring a straight dick down my throat or up my mangina makes for an especially exciting seduction. And pretty much all of them have done it.

    So, bottom line we’re all just sexual. Most people are more one way than the other, but absolute exclusivity is rare. If you’re as queer as a $3 bill and your fag hag want to fuck you just for kicks, go for it. You’ll love it, and don’t worry – you’ll still be attracted to boys. If you’re straight as an arrow but that guy’s body language is clueing you in, go for it. You’ll live, and you’ll still be straight. (And you might even be back for more.)

    1. You’re always so fucking incomplete …. for being an older gay person who should exhibit more intelligence for your age and experiences.

      “Gay men go to bed with women out of curiosity, social convention, and in response to the instinctive urge to procreate.”

      You forgot the most “important” reasons that gays, not just bed, but marry and produce offspring, is: For FEAR of societal (“religious”) repercussions, primarily … prison and, oh yeah, let’s not forget … DEATH.

      1. Both of you have come forth with strong arguments for your respective opinions.

        Both are equaly valid, so……truth? ;-D
