Why do some gay men prefer to watch sex between two heterosexual men? Where does this desire come from? Is it innate or is it learned?

Why ‘Mostly Straight’ Men Are a Distinct Sexual Identity
Watching straight guys having some type of gay sexual experience is a fantasy for many.

This divide stems from a common understanding of human sexuality: The female variety of it is more malleable, more inherently open to experimentation and variety, than the male variety. In doing so, she shows that homosexual contact has been a regular feature of heterosexual life ever since the concepts of homo- and heterosexuality were first created — not just in prisons and frat houses and the military, but in biker gangs and even conservative suburban neighborhoods. And what I argue in the book is that even that research is situated within some long-held beliefs about the fundamental difference between men and women that are not accurate from a feminist perspective.
