- Desire between the sexes is NOT a matter of choice, was reported in last week's front page of the New York Times Science Section. In other words, sexual orientation is genetic.
Straight men, it seems, have neural circuits that prompt them to seek out women; gay men have those prompting them to seek other men. Women’s brains may be organized to select men who seem likely to provide for them and their children. The deal is sealed with other neural programs that induce a burst of romantic love, followed by long-term attachment.
