For the straight or the semi-straight out there....
OK, I'll admit it...and already have several times throughout my DU time...I'm mostly hetero. But that classification doesn't even match up as I haven't had sex in years.

My question:

What people of the same sex attracts you that you'd never feel sexual attraction to? If you know what I mean.

1. I'll go first.
Denzel Washington. He is one hunk of a man. I'm not attracted to him sexually, but I would love to be him.

2. Seeing "Ocean's Eleven"....
I definitely enjoyed Clooney and Pitt strutting around as buddies. They seemed to get a kick out of how ridiculously attractive they both are.

6. Don't want to hijack Keph's thread, but
I always loved cool, blond Nordic women...Elizabeth Montgomery, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly and Inger Stevens were the women of my dreams as pre-teen until...I realized that George Clooney and Mel Gibson were more my particular ticket

8. Well, I'm not really quallified either
Edited on Fri Feb-13-04 10:28 PM by khephra
I've actually slept with as many men as I have women...which isn't saying much. The only out I have is that I've been pretty much hetero in mindset for the last 5 years.

I don't really fit into any neat grouping of sexuality. I'm pretty asexual at this point.

5. I'd love to be Rocco Siffredi
He can handle six women at a time and still look a male model after he's done.

He's a nifty dresser as well.

21. Wow, you read my mind!
Yup, Rocco's got my vote as well. Him or Peter North.

7. I Would Have Done Marvin Gaye
Edited on Fri Feb-13-04 10:36 PM by ribofunk
His voice just pierced me to the heart. But he would have had to sing the whole time. :)

And, when all is said and done, I went to high school in the 60's. On general principles, I wouldn't have kicked Mick Jagger out of bed either.

On Edit: Dear God, I'm completely hetero and I can't believe I'm saying this.

10. Not quite
You don't have to be g/b/l to be attracted to people of your opposite sex.

13. It's like this (I think, Keph can correct me if I'm wrong)
I'm straight, but I can think Johnny Depp is a hot guy. Doesn't mean I find him sexually attractive necessarily, but I find him attractive.

I think that's what the question is...but I could be wrong. :-)

16. LOL! - Do I come across as a guy?
Not to threadjack your topic, but that does beg the question. :shrug:

I've said all along that while I'm a straight woman and prefer men, prefer to date men, prefer to someday have a LTR with a man, there are some women that I can definitely see the appeal. Not a big deal really. I think Ellen Degeneres is my kind of woman. :-)

Edited on Fri Feb-13-04 10:58 PM by khephra
unless I've met them, I just misread your previous comments. ;-)

People think I'm a woman... :shrug:

19. I have never had any gay urges to my knowlege
but Andy Garcia is a damn sexy guy. All that I am not. Attractive in so many ways. (That is quite enough honesty for one night, thank you.)

22. I've heard that lesbians really like Gabrielle Reese....
I was reminded of this by your reference to Elle McPherson. Girls seem to admire girls who have that specific physique. Hmm.

23. Who is Gabrielle?
Physique isn't that important to me - but since I don't often sit around thinking about girls it's hard to come up with a good sampling. Usually I will think "wow, she's hot" in passing when seeing someone on tv or whatever -

I am mostly attracted to people mentally. I think my best friend Megan is "hot" - because she's one of the most beautiful human beings I know and I love her dearly, but physically she'd probably not be considered hot by the mainstream. A damned shame, too! Some guy is REALLY missing out on her!

Elle, I've thought was hot for years. She truly is a beautiful woman.
