Who Knew Homosexuality Was So Compelling?

P.Z. Myers points us to the strange rantings of a certain Paul Cameron, who has the following to say about the irresistable allure of homosexuality:

"Untrammeled homosexuality can take over and destroy a social system," says Cameron. "If you isolate sexuality as something solely for one's own personal amusement, and all you want is the most satisfying orgasm you can get- and that is what homosexuality seems to be-then homosexuality seems too powerful to resist. The evidence is that men do a better job on men and women on women, if all you are looking for is orgasm." So powerful is the allure of gays, Cameron believes, that if society approves that gay people, more and more heterosexuals will be inexorably drawn into homosexuality. "I'm convinced that lesbians are particularly good seducers," says Cameron. "People in homosexuality are incredibly evangelical," he adds, sounding evangelical himself. "It's pure sexuality. It's almost like pure heroin. It's such a rush. They are committed in almost a religious way. And they'll take enormous risks, do anything." He says that for married men and women, gay sex would be irresistible. "Marital sex tends toward the boring end," he points out. "Generally, it doesn't deliver the kind of sheer sexual pleasure that homosexual sex does" So, Cameron believes, within a few generations homosexuality would be come the dominant form of sexual behavior.

Hot damn! Why wasn't I told gays had so much fun? Why, I feel like rushing out straight away and hopping onto the Gay Lifestyle™ now that I've heard how wonderful it is!

Paul Cameron has either been driven insane by paranoia or he's actually a covert recruitment agent for the oh-so-ominous "Gay Agenda"; I don't see how else one can explain a rant like this one. In fact, I don't see how Mr. Cameron could possibly know that gay sex is so much better than the straight kind unless he's tried it (and liked it) himself. After all, it isn't as if there are people going around handing out samplers of the "Gay Experience" like sachets of perfume. The man doth protest too much, methinks.
