UK researchers have shown women nude photos of women and men and found that all women who defined themselves as heterosexuals experienced intense sexual arousal from images of both sexes. Lesbians, on the other hand, showed a clear preference for female nudity

On the other hand, women who declared themselves lesbians exhibited a clear preference – with very strong responses to female nudity and almost no response to the naked male pictures. “The lesbian response to the study is reminiscent of men who also tend to show a clear preference for nude images of the species to which they have declared to be attracted,” the authors write.
Another conclusion that emerges from the study is that there is not necessarily a correlation between male appearance and male response to nudity. Dr. Reiger said that among the lesbians who participated in his study were also those who were outwardly dressed and dressed in masculine features, but no correlation was found between this performance and the response to the videos. “Some lesbians exhibited a more masculine response than others to the videos, To determine that it was those who were also masculine, “he said
