Confessions of a Lesbian Feminist Slasher|
It's pretty easy for me to think that enjoying gay fanfic, especially erotica, would raise questions for any reader about their own sexuality. I mean, you read enough "Wow, I thought we were friends but really I wanted to do him all along!" and you've got to start to think about your own life, you know? ;)
At the same time, it's pretty likely that people who are already relatively openminded about their own sexuality find slash more attractive. So I don't know...
Oh, and also there's the whole... just spending time with your own sexuality, spending time thinking about what you find sexy and what you don't. That's been one of fanfic's big effects on me personally, I think. Regardless of what you identify as, that's got to have some effect on how you experience your sexuality.

LOL! That's a good point.
As is your other point, that reading and writing sexually oriented material makes you think about your own sexuality.
