Woman Loves Eiffel Tower

Just as the world is starting to get used to homosexuality, a new type of sexuality is introduced. Today, “Good Morning America” discussed interesting cases in which people love inanimate objects. Yes, we’ve heard of this before with the man who has sex with cars, but now there’s a name: Objectum-Sexuality. Take for instance Erika Eiffel, who had a commitment ceremony and recently changed her name to reflect her bond with the Eiffel Tower. And the French landmark isn’t the first thing she’s loved. “When other teenagers were dating each other,” said Erika, “I was dating a bridge.” [ABC News] Keep reading »

Sexual Preference From A Fertility Gene?

One of the questions in the nature vs. nurture regarding homosexuality is if homosexuality is hereditary, and those in same-sex relationships can’t reproduce, why hasn’t homosexuality disappeared? A new Italian study might explain part of this. According to findings from the University of Padova in Italy, homosexuality in males might be caused by the same genes that increase fertility in females. This would mean that in the same family, if a male inherited this gene, he would be gay, and if a female inherited this gene, she would be more fertile and possibly give birth to more babies than normal, making up for her brother’s lack of offspring and passing on the gene. Now, this conclusion seems to make sense for gay men, but not for lesbians, and the researchers think there’s an entirely different explanation for that. [LiveScience] Keep reading »

Study Shows Link Between Brain And Sexuality

Gay men and straight women share some characteristics in the area of the brain responsible for emotion, mood, and anxiety, researchers from Sweden’s Karolinska Institute wrote in a study, and heterosexual men and homosexual women’s brain scans were not symmetric, with the right hemisphere slightly larger than the left. Following this study, which suggests that nature has a role in sexuality, researchers are wondering whether doctors will be able to look at the brains of newborn babies and predict their future sexual preference. Further investigation is needed, but this could make coming out to parents a whole lot easier. Child: I’m gay! Parent: We’ve known since you were a newborn! [Reuters] Keep reading »
