I'd discussed before how I'd always been averse to reading gay porn until I wrote my own, in which case it almost magically stopped bugging me. I described it as 'seeing the act as tab p into hole a', which some objected to, but it was really one of seeing the relationship independently of the physical components.
Given that as my basis, I've got a writing challenge, for those willing to accept it. Let's see if all the straight writers can actually write a hot gay sex scene, and then see whether it changes their perceptions of gay porn or not.
If several of us offer a short gay story (even a single chapter), and compare our results, we can measure/guestimate how bothered we are by it both before and after the experiment, plus what effect individual authors have. I'm curious whether my experience of writing a book in my brother's honor is transferable to others or not.
