Would you be turned on by looking at your mom naked?

Context is key.

HTDC's avatar

Doesn’t masturbation itself classify as being turned on by one’s own genitals?

Fyrius's avatar

Some of them probably are. That’s called narcissism.

They always add themselves to their own fluthers too.

Kind of a ridiculous question… in short, no.

Despite popular connotations with homosexuals, we’re people too. Generally, people dont get “turned on” by themselves. Being a homosexual doesn’t mean every penis/vagina you see becomes a sexual object or desirable just the same as a heterosexual male isn’t automatically attracted to every woman or vagina he sees.

Haha this should be good.

dpworkin's avatar

Aren’t you, homosexual or not? Or don’t you ever masturbate?

AstroChuck's avatar

Don’t be ridiculous. Silly question.

Well, let’s put it this way: if someone were turned on by their own genitals, they probably would be homosexual, otherwise it wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense. It’s one of those square-rectangle things. People who are turned on by their own genitals are most likely homosexual, but not all homosexuals are turned on by their own genitals.

I mean, yeah, sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and I think “damn, what a sexy son of a bitch”, but I’m not really turned on by myself. Other times it’s just like “this is boring, I want to see someone else naked now”.

I do think I look sexually attractive, though. But I try to.

@HTDC

No, because it’s the visual or mental stimulus that you are masturbating to, not thoughts or images of your own genitals.

silverfly's avatar

I can’t think of anything to say. This is a weird question.

HTDC's avatar

@DominicX True, but isn’t masturbation (unaided by external stimulus) a turn on caused by one’s body? I get what you’re saying though.

CMaz's avatar

It made me laugh! That gets a GQ.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I am attracted to all sexes and when I look at my vagina, nothing happens really.

janbb's avatar

Removed by me.

Arp's avatar

@janbb Some can :P

DominicX's avatar

This is freaking me out, though, because you don’t know how many people have told me that my boyfriend looks like me. I think it’s more that I try to look like what I am most attracted to rather than that I am attracted to myself. But I probably would do me if I came across a clone of myself…I try to emulate what I am attracted to.

@HTDC

It’s just a physical reaction to a physical stimulus. Plus, it’s hard to masturbate without some kind of image (either a fantasy or a real image).

laureth's avatar

@HTDC – I would tend to think that it’s aiding the body to reach climax; the desire to do so could be caused by anything.

I’m vaguely bisexual, but that doesn’t mean I fondle my own breasts because they’re attractive. :)

wundayatta's avatar

Did you ever take a picture of your own genitals? Say for someone else’s pleasure? Did you review the picture to make sure it was a good one?

I think there is a certain narcissism in many of us, if not all of us. I mean, if you don’t admire yourself, who will? Besides which, to pose for a porn layout, or even to pretend to do that, well, you might be able to pass a mirror without stopping, but if you’ve got your dingle out in your hand, and it’s doing it’s thing… oh never mind.

MissAnthrope's avatar

I’m partly amused, partly shaking my head at the ignorance in this question. Seriously?

You know how some guys go, Dude, if I had boobs, I’d never leave the house? Well, that’s just dumb because a) they belong to you and it’s way more fun if someone else touches them, and b) you see them every day, which means a certain amount of erotic desensitization.

Arp's avatar

@MissAnthrope I didn’t mean to offend anyone, just curious :|

MissAnthrope's avatar

@Arp – Thanks.. I amended because I realized “offended” was too strong of a word. xo

CMaz's avatar

The issue with your question is the thinking that homosexuals have some other way of seeing their genitals then “others”.

Replace genitals with any other word.

Are Homosexuals turned on by their own grilled cheese sandwiches?

Captain_Fantasy's avatar

Whoa… Deep thoughts there

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I don’t know about anyone else but I do get a bit turned on by looking at my own and also touching them. Uh oh.

wundayatta's avatar

@ChazMaz I’m afraid that my grilled cheese sandwiches leave me kind of empty.

MrsDufresne's avatar

@Captain_Fantasy Yep, my brain is still reeling….in a good way….lol.
@ChazMaz ROFL

My short answer:
All people are at one time or another.

SeventhSense's avatar

I’m not gay but I must say I’m fond of my penis. I have this one picture and the mouth of an old girlfriend….I’m thinking of framing it…. But I can only imagine the horrified relative: “Oh that’s sweet… was this Oktoberferst this girl with the kielbasa in this picture?...“Wait what’s that..” “Oh my God! You’re sick! Get the children we’re leaving!...”

simone54's avatar

Are you?

KatawaGrey's avatar

I’m not entirely sure how to answer this question but I love the responses.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir: I gotta say, your response inspired and interesting mental image for me.

judochop's avatar

Sometimes my penis stares up at me and whispers sweet nothings. It usually happens in the morning. We bond for a little bit. I hold him and he warms my hand. We have a mutual love for each other.

Shakes head

laureth's avatar

@judochop – and when he’s feeling a little sick, do you hold him through all the fever, convulsions, and throwing up? You must really love him!

Dr_C's avatar

I’m sorry.. i was far too distracted staring intently at my genitals to pay any real attention to the details of this question…
is anyone else turned on right now?

KatawaGrey's avatar

@Dr_C: Who isn’t turned on by your genitals?

janbb's avatar

@Dr_C Why don’t you show us a picture and we’ll see what comes up?

Dr_C's avatar

@KatawaGrey rawr!
@janbb not in public…. but maybe we can work something out along the lines of “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours”

janbb's avatar

@Dr_C I’ve never played doctor with a real doctor before!

Dr_C's avatar

@janbb there’s a first time for everything… and I mean everything

SeventhSense's avatar

Looks like Spring Fever…

janbb's avatar

@SeventhSense I told you I was on Spring Break. Penguins gone wild!

Carinaponcho's avatar

I get turned on by my own genitals and I’m heterosexual. I’m just very narcissistic.

lemmy's avatar

I get turned on by my chin, my hair, my nose, my toes, my hands, my breath… days are so hard.
