Many gay men fantasise about being intimate with straight men, and there's nothing inherently wrong with these sexual scenarios. Participants viewed images of faces that were digitally manipulated to be more masculine or feminine, and then indicated which face they considered more attractive. Women's preferences are more complex than men's, as indicated by prior research demonstrating that ovulation, contraceptive use, self-perceived attractiveness, and sex drive all affect face preference.

This is the easiest reason to cite for the cultural phenomenon of gay males seeking "straight-acting" gay men, or even straight men only. Nobody gets everything he wants in a relationship. In and of itself, there's nothing wrong with this. Straight men are also off-limits. As adults, when we sexualize those same figures, it offers us an unconscious way to feel safely attached to them. Some even prefer straight men over gay men!
