Gay women tend to be exclusively sexually attracted to women, while straight women are more likely to be aroused by both sexes, a study says. Researchers asked women about their sexual preferences and compared these with their arousal levels when shown videos of attractive men and women. The University of Essex study concluded that no woman is "totally straight". The new study, led by Dr Gerulf Rieger from the University of Essex and published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology , measured the arousal of women using eye tracking devices and direct measures of physiological sexual response.

To determine what the women were aroused by, Rieger and his team showed participants videos of naked men and women and then analyzed their responses, using predictors such as pupil dilation and genital arousal.
Although lesbians are much more attracted to females, most women who say they are straight were aroused by videos of both naked men and naked women. The study , led by Doctor Gerulf Rieger from the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex, showed a series of videos of naked men and women to women and recorded their responses. It found 82 per cent of the women tested were aroused by both sexes, based on indicators such as whether their pupils dilated in response to sexual stimuli.
