Attractive people are more likely to be down with gay sex

Scientific advancement has saved countless lives, increased the quality of life for millions and helped us understand the world around us with ever-deepening clarity.

And now a new study published in Social Science Quarterly does… absolutely none of those things.

But hey, it’s fuel for fantasy and we could all use a little bit of that now and then.

According to researchers at Iowa State University, attractive people are more likely to hold accepting views of gay sex as opposed to less conventionally attractive folks.

Looking at responses from the 2016 General Social Survey and the 1972 National Election Study, researchers compared how respondents reacted to “moral issues” like marriage equality, gay sex and abortion.

These particular studies involved evaluations of the participants’ physical appearances, and people who possessed more conventionally attractive attributes were more likely to approve of same-sex lovin’.

Other topics like marijuana legalization saw no difference based on physicality.

“These results support the hypothesis that greater opportunity to indulge in a behavior — as good looks typically provide for sexual activities — reduces the sense of moral stigma surrounding that activity,” Robert Urbatsch of Iowa State University speculated.

If the theory sounds a bit thin, that’s because it is. Other factors like upbringing and exposure to non-straight peers would likely influence a person’s belief structure more than how readily available sex may be.

But it’s also not the craziest idea we’ve ever heard.
