    This action is discriminatory in itself.

    They don’t take into account that for gay people in certain countries straight porn may be all they can find. Plus a number of gay men love straight porn because of the men.

    Surely it would make more sense to show gay porn and take it from there if they have to find arousal levels. It seems inhuman though.

  2. I can’t see how a result either way would prove a thing. What about gay people who are too intimidated and scared tby the whole experience to feel sexually aroused?

  3. this sounds like a whole new chapter for William Higgins’ Airport Security scenarios. It’s pretty recursive actually.

    Er…how does one do phallometric testing on someone claiming to be lesbian, or is it assumed all gay people are men?

    Furthermore, as not everyone finds porn arousing (me for instance), the whole basis of this test is flawed.
