People say there is more to being gay than just sex?

I am heterosexual. I have close female friends. We don't have sex. But if I wanted to have sex, I would be gay.

So what is the difference between a friendship and a relationship, if it isn't sexual feelings and attraction?

  • Sexuality is defined by sexual feelings. If you have sexual feelings towards a same sex person then you would be homosexual whether or not you engaged in any sexual act. Just as if you were celibate but had sexual feelings towards an oppoiste gendered person.

    Friendship is the definition of a TYPE of relationship and I would say that while some emotional relationships can be as detrimental as physical there is a definate difference when it comes to sexual orientation.

  • Riddle me this... what's the diff between a friendship and a relationship between a hetero man and woman? Is that all about sex... uh, no, at least not all the time! So why would being gay be just about sex? Geez. Come on... this was just posted to start drama. Nice job though on that front, i'm sure it will do the job! lol

  • So how is being gay an identity? What else comes with the sexual attraction?

  • When you're in a relationship, are you just interested in sex with that person? There's always more to a relationship than just sex. But sexual attraction is a part of that. Same thing with gay people.

    I really don't understand the question at all.

  • I am heterosexual, and my husband and I share much more than just sex and sexual attraction. I also have both male and female friends, both without sex or sexual attraction. It's way off the mark to think that love relationships - gay or straight - are only about sex.

    Yes there is friendship (which you can have with anyone) and sexual attraction.

    So how is being gay an identity?

    It is just sex.
