The authors, Henry E. Adams, Lester W. Wright, Jr., and Bethany A. Lohr, started with 35 straight men identified as homophobic and 29 straight men that were not. Both groups were shown heterosexual, lesbian and gay male porn while their erectile responses were measured.
“Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli,” reported the researchers.
