  1. Oh please thats normal

    1. @James!

      I agree some of that is normal, just interested if we think the same bit is normal …

      Which part do you mean?

    Drugs Can Not Make You Want To Have Gay Sex Or Sex With Men, Unless Your Already Gay & Been An Closet Case Or Bi.

    As For Taking More Risk, That Could Be Due To The Drug Or Knowing Soon Your Body & Mind Will Get Worse & You Wanna Live Life In The Present, Knowning You Might Not Able To Live Life To The Full In A Few Years Time.

    The drug may of made him obsessive, but it did not chose the things he became obsessive about.

    The cross dressing and gay sex had to have been in his subconscious mind in the first place.

  4. Why do people have to go out of their way to type like retards on the internet?

    It just needs something to blame, it was a placebo.

    1. Jason retards is a discriminatory word mate

      1. And James, you are a retard.

        1. @LULU2

          Charming LULU2.

          You don’t change do ya!

  5. Where can i get this drug?

  6. Jock S. Trap 25 Mar 2011, 11:47am

    ‘According to the Daily Mail…’

    Hmmm that’s more than enough to make me say “Good luck with that then!”

    All this did was bring his true, ‘denying’ self out. He should stop making excuses for it. Like Helen says it may make him obsessive but it wouldn’t pigeon hole that obsession that was already there in the undergrowth.

  7. Jock S. Trap 25 Mar 2011, 11:51am

    All this shows is the lengths some will go to deny everything about themselves. Also once the like of the Daily (Hate)Mail gets involved the creditiblity of that case surely goes out the window.

  8. I’m with Helen on this.

    It is possible that the drug made him obsessive. It may have made him seek behaviour and gratification to an extent that he previously had not done so.

    I do not accept – until there is good evidence to substantiate it that the drug made him desire gay sex, to cross dress, or caused him to be raped.

  9. There’s a myth that cross dressers (once called transvestites) aren’t even gay, many of them are married to women, have chlidren but have this side of them they feel they need to express. I doubt if this drug had anything to do with this man’s sudden addiction to gay sex. His desire for it was always there in his subconscious.

      Excellent point.

      His actions are a bit extreme though, I mean most ‘straight’ men I’ve known it only take between 6 and 10 pints.

      (Oh of beer, not vodka!)

      1. @ Jock S Trap

        That old chestnut of whats the difference between a gay man and a straight man …. lol

        1. Jock S. Trap 25 Mar 2011, 2:20pm

          Yeah Stu but point is in most cases it has been true.

          :P

          1. @Jock S Trap

            I havent been fortunate enough to experiment with whether it is true or fable more than once or twice lol

    2. Hang on, I don’t think it’s a ‘myth’. It’s well documented if anything.

      transvesticism and sexuality have little to do with one another.

      1. @Mendarin – I very nearly jumped to the conclusion you did there, but then reread the additional post that Robert made clarifying his point

    3. Staircase2 25 Mar 2011, 2:51pm

      ‘myth’…….?
      says who?

      as far as I understand it cross dressing is not linked to sexuality – its a completely different aspect which sometimes coincides

      1. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 4:47pm

        However suffer just as much prejudice and discrimination.

  10. An error in my last post. I meant to have said that there’s a myth that cross dressers are all gay. Its hardly the case.

    1. @ Robert

      Glad I read both your posts before responding, as I was about to say – not ALL cross dressers are gay …

      I must admit I don’t get cross dressing, but each to their own …

      I suspect the drug may have made him more obsessive but the subject matters of his obsession (if he is honest with himself) are likely to have been issues he has thought about or held either deep seated desires about or held in denial …

  11. There is nothing about this story I dont find funny.

    1. It is quite amusing …

      Although I suspect not the the mans wife and children lol

      1. 390,000 and someone will be laughing all the way to the next cottage I mean bank, then there’s the book rights, and the tv shows (the ‘I’m not a crossdressing serial take it up the rear sex addict, so get me out of here!@ etc)

        1. Is there a French version of Jeremy Kyle?

  12. We should not dismiss this out of hand because it feels a very uncomfortable statement (misconceived as ‘drugs made him gay’), because we don’t know about the drug involved. From what small knowledge I have, it is possible these behaviours were generated from dopaminergic effects, even if it is not likely. Dopaminergic disturbances are well-documented in drug and gambling addicts. The dopaminergic system is heavily involved in the perception and rewards of risk and addiction. One wouldn’t necessarily have to be gay to indulge in risky and gay behaviours; it’s the element of risk that you perceive that would count (i.e. for a married heterosexual man, participating in homosexual activity is the risk due to consequences on his life). If he says he’s straight then we should believe him.

    Either way, we shouldn’t be laughing at him. This is really a medical issue rather than gay news isn’t it

    1. @somnolent

      The report made it quite clear that the drug was documented as having side effects that made people obsessive.

      Can you document a single case of a drug that made someone cross dress, made them change sexual orientation etc … ???

      1. Oh and it is both a medical issue and gay news. I am sure many clinicians would also find this amusing too

  13. If the drug did this to this chap would it not of done this to others? Or are they all still safely in the closet?

  14. The drugs companies are always out to make a buck, maybe the will they market it and start selling the drugs to men and women who want to be different. By the way the guy should be glad the drug didn’t kill him like some of their drugs do. You know the ones with the warnings on the box.

    1. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 4:48pm

      Erm… that could be interesting.

  15. Imagine if it’s true – they might start selling it at clone zone.

    1. Jock S. Trap 2 Apr 2011, 4:48pm

      Probably already do!!
