I'M WITH MY PANEL NIGHTLYCONTRIBUTOR MIKE YARD.

ALSO NIGHTLY SHOW CONTRIBUTORGRACE PARRA.

AND SHE'S A PRODUCER AT HUFFPOSTLIVE COVERING LGBT ISSUES, ALEX

BERG. AND FOR EVERYONE AT HOME,YOU CAN JOIN OUR CONVERSATION ON

THIS IS THE STORY I THINK THATBROKE LAST WEEK.

AND WE JUST HAD TO TALK ABOUTIT.

A RECENT STUDY IN THE JOURNAL OFPERSONALITY IN SOCIAL PSYCOLOGY

WHICH SOUNDS RIDICULOUS.

AND IT SUGGESTS THAT ALL WOMENARE AT LEAST A LITTLE BISEXUAL

OKAY.

>> MEN LOVE THIS.

>> WE DON'T GIVE THAT A STANDINGOVATION?

>> Larry: DO WE THINK THIS ISTRUE?

>> ABSOLUTELY, EXCEPTMY MOTHER.

MY MOTHER IS A GOOD CATHOLICWOMAN AND ONLY HAD SEX FIVE

TIMES.

>> SO I WISH THAT THIS WAS TRUE.

I AM JUST ABOUT AS ENTHUSIASTICAS YOU ABOUT THIS.

BUT I THINK THAT THE ISSUE ISTHAT WOMEN DO HAVE A HIGHER RATE

OF SEXUAL FLUIDITY BUT THE STUDYDOESN'T EXACTLY PARSE OUT HOW

THEY EXPERIENCE THAT VERSUSTHEIR PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE

TO AROUSING IMAGERY>> IS THAT A WAY OF SAYING NO.

>> IT IS A WAY OF SAYING THATTHERE IS A PROBABILITY THAT

WOMEN COULD BE MORE BISEXUALBUT THAT-- .

>> Larry: THEN MEN OR.

>> WELL, DEFINITELY THAN MEN,MORE THAN MEN.

>> Larry: WOULD YOU SAY WOMENARE MORE BISEXUALLY INCLINED.

>> THAT IS ONE WAY OF PUTTINGIT.

I THINK THAT YOU CAN'T JUST SAYTHAT ALL WOMEN, ALL OVER THE

WORLD ARE ALL BISEXUAL BASED ONA SAMPLE SIZE OF 345 PEOPLE.

>> YOU CAN'T?

>> I DON'T THINK SO.

>> I ALSO THINK LIKE AROUSALLEVELS ARE FASCINATING TO

OBSERVE BECAUSE HONESTLY IF YOUWERE TO SHOW ME A PICTURE OF A

CHICKEN FRIED STEAK WOULD YOUPROBABLY DETECT SOME AROUSAL.

>> YOU GUYS KNOW.

>> BUT I DON'T THINK I WOULDWANT TO BONE A CHICKEN FRIED

STEAK.

>> Larry: THAT IS THEDIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND

WOMEN. A GUY WOULD [BLEEP] ACHICKEN FRIED STEAK

>> THAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THESTUDY, I THINK THE STUDY IS TOO

LIMITED.

IT TELLS YOU WOMEN GET AROUSEDBUT IT DOESN'T SAY THAT THEY

WOULD NECESSARILY HAVE SEXWITH.

>> HERE IS THE THING.

IT IS FUNNY YOU SAY THAT, THEREWAS A PREVIOUS STUDY IN 2008

THAT WOMEN ARE SHOWN ALL KINDSOF IMAGES, WE SORT OF

AUTOMATICALLY GET AROUSED AND ITDOESN'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO DO

WITH WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT.

>> Larry: SO WOMENAUTOMATICALLY GET AROUSED BY

ALL-- I THOUGHT GUYS, WE ARESUPPOSED TO BE THE VISUAL.

>> THAT IS THE PERCEPTION.

THERE IS THIS THING CALLEDAROUSAL NONCONCORDANCE AND IT

BASICALLY MEANS AS A WOMAN, IFYOU SEE SEXUAL IMAGES OF MEN OR

WOMEN, YOU GET AROUSED.

BUT THAT IT DOESN'T NECESSARILYMATCH UP TO WHAT YOUR BRAIN

FEELS.

>> I THINK IT'S GREAT THATWE'RE TALKING ABOUT FEMALE

AROUSAL IN GENERAL.>> I AGREE WITH YOU.

>> WE TALK CONSISTENTLYABOUT FEMALE SEXUALITY AS IT

RELATES TO PROGENY AND HAVINGCHILDREN.

BUT WE LIKE HAVING SEX FOR THESAKE OF HAVING SEX.

>> AND YES, LET'S PUTS TIME ANDRESEARCH AND ENERGY.

>> I LIKE HOW THEY JUST TOOKOVER.

>> WE'RE EXCITED

>> AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG.

YOU GO GO GIRL.

>> SO IS THERE A BIAS EVEN INTHE STUDY ITSELF.

>> THE STUDY FOUND.

>> BUT MAYBE PEOPLE HAVEMORE ISSUES DISCUSSING

FEMALE AROUSAL THAN MALEAROUSAL.

>> IT'S BEEN LESS COMMON AND ITHINK THIS IS A GREAT STUDY TO

SHOW WE ARE BECOMING MOREOKAY WITH IT.

>> BUT THE STUDY SHOW THAT ITWASN'T JUST, MEN AND WOMEN, TOO,

WOMEN COULD BE BECOME SEXUALLYAROUSED BY ALL TYPES OF THINGS

LIKE A PICTURE OF A LANDSCAPE.

>> YES.

>> 2007, UNIVERSITY STUDY,LANDSCAPE MONKEYS.

>> IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO LUBETHE TUBE.

>> YES.

>> WE'RE NOT HAVING-- .

>> Larry: HOLD ON A SECOND.

ARE THESE WOMEN IN RELATIONSHIPSOR.

>> I DON'T KNOW.

>> Larry: A LANDSCAPE IS ALL IT

TAKES.

>> BUT WE'RE THE DIRTY ONES.

>> Larry: WE'VE BEEN WORKINGWAY TOO HARD.

>> YES, YES.

>> I HAVE NEVER LOOKED AT ALANDSCAPE AND THEN-- .

>> Larry: I CAN'T IMAGINETHAT.

>> WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THISLANDSCAPE?

THAT'S ALL YOU GOT TO DO.

>> LARRY, WHAT IT UNDERSCORES ISWE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION

ABOUT FEMALE SEXUALITY.

AND THAT WOMEN HAVE REALLY BEENBOXED

BOXED IN IN TERMS OF OURSEXUALITY.

THE GOOD THING ABOUT THE STUDYIS IT IS SEEKING MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT IT, THE BADTHING IS IT IS NOT FULLY RELYING

ON WOMEN'S LIVED EXPERIENCES OFTHEIR OWN LIVES AND SEXUALITY.

SO WE STILL REALLY HAVE THESEDICHOTOMIES AROUND THE WAY WE

UNDERSTAND.

>> Larry: WHAT DO YOU THINKTHESE ARE, MAINLY BIOLOGICAL, OR

DO YOU THINK SOME MAY BECULTURAL.

>> A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH.

>> I MEAN MEN, THEY HAVE ONEGOAL.

THEY GET TO IT AND THEY'RE QUICKABOUT IT.

THAT IS WHY MEN KEEP SOCKS ONDURING SEX, WHICH IS A FILTHY

HABIT. BECAUSE THEY AREREADY TO GO RIGHT AFTER.

>> WE FIND IT MORE ENJOYABLEWHEN THE TEMPERATURE IS WARM.

>> I THINK MEN NEED TO LEARN HOWTO SLOW DOWN WHEN IT COMES TO

SEX.

>> BUT I ALSO THINK THAT ITINVOLVES CULTURAL AND BIOLOGICAL

AND SO I THINK ESPECIALLY WHENIT COMES TO MEN AND MALE

BISEXUALITY, MEN ARE-- IN TERMSOF BISEXUALITY.

STRAIGHT WOMEN DON'T WANT TO GETWITH MEN WHO ARE BISEXUAL, GAY

MEN DON'T WANT TO GET WITH MENWHO ARE BISEXUAL.

IT EVEN TRANSLATES TO HOW FEMALEBISEXUALS ARE PERCEIVED

>> Larry: SO MALE BISEXUAL,FEMALE BISEXUAL.

FEMALE BISEXUALS ARE HAVING SEXWITH SOMEBODY.

>> THEY ARE STIGMATIZEDIN A DIFFERENT WAY.

>> DO YOU THICK HOMOPHOBIA PLAYSA PART IN MEN NOT WANTING TO

SAY THEY ARE BISEXUAL OR HAVEURGES LIKE WOMEN?

>> NO, I THINK THAT-- IT IS NOTBECAUSE I'M NOT-- I'VE NEVER

GOTTEN TURNED ON BY TWO DUDESBUT IT'S NOT BECAUSE I'M

HOMOPHOBIC.>> HOW ABOUT ONE DUDE?

>> NO DUDES, GUYS DON'T TURN MEON.

I CAN'T EVEN MASTURBATE WITHA MIRROR IN THE ROOM, SO-- .

>> IF I SEE ME, I'M LIKE E-WWHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.

SHUT IT DOWN, PUT THE LOTIONAWAY.

>> I THINK AS A HETEROSEXUALFEMALE I CAN SAY THE OPPOSITE,

THAT WOMEN TURN ME ON, I JUSTLIKE THEIR BODIES BUT I DON'T

NECESSARILY WANT TO HAVE SEXWITH WOMEN.

IT'S NOT LIKE I'M TRYING TO-- ITIS NOT-- NO OFFENSE TO THAT, BY

ANY MEANS BUT I JUST.

>> I LOVE YOUR LITTLE SAYINGS.WAIT, WHAT?

>> THAT IS ONE OF THE ISSUESTHAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE STUDY

IS THAT WOMEN ARE HAVING APHYSIOLOGICAL REACTION BUT IT'S

DIFFERENT FROM ACTUALLYIDENTIFYING AS BISEXUAL OR

LESBIAN.

>> THAT IS THE STUDY I WANT.

I WANT TO SEE THE STUDY THAT CANTAKE IT FROM AROUSAL TO HOLDING

IT UNTIL WE GET HOME, THAT'SWHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.

BECAUSE HOW MANY TIMES THEY GETAROUSED WHEN THEY ARE OUT, WHEN

WE GET HOME, AND SOON AS YOU GETHOME, MY FEET HURT, I'M TIRED,

I'M HUNGRY.

I WANT THAT STUDY.

>> WE'VE GOTTA GET YOU SOME LANDSCAPES IN YOUR HOUSE

>> WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
