No: Programs to "convert" or "cure" homosexuality have widely been discredited. The largest organization in the us that performed these "conversions" recently closed and apologized for all the harm that they have done. While desire cannot be changed, a person may choose not to act on those desires. This is a personal choice but should not be done with the expectation of "turning straight.". ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hi I am gay and my boy friend does not like it when i get an erection and i don't either so i was wondering if there is a way i can stop getting erect?

I’m 21 years old boy I’m gay I can’t help it I’m still a virgin I’m always afraid to have sex I’m scared from stds how can I break my fear thank you?
Why ?: Fear is a normal reflex. Any casual sex will expose you to any STD's acquired by a potential partner in any of their prior encounters.

Is Being Gay Wrong?: No. Simple, sweet, and honest. Who we find attractive, who we love or want to love and how we want to express our love sexually is a gift of being human. In all cultures and species there is a small percentage of the population who are wired to be homosexual or homo-social. Being gay is a gift. Feeling love and wanting to be loved is one of the highest gives we can receive in our lives. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's pretty simple: Assuming a relatively normal childhood without history of sexual experiences before puberty, at around the age of 12 or thirteen, when the other boys start noticing girls, the gay kid will start noticing boys. Sexual attraction and arousal are powerful forces in teenagers and gay males know pretty quickly what they are attracted to but are forced to repress those feelings by societal conventions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not necessarily: As long as a child is brought up in an emotionally healthy family- whether that is a relationship with two people of the same or different sex- the child should live an emotionally happy life. The nature of the relationship of the parents does not predict whether the child his/herself will be in a gay relationship or not. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Born that way: It is interesting that those who say you choose that are not scientists - they are radical priests or politicians. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it is not a choice but something wired in you. There have even been studies on brain imaging to show this to be the case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
