I'm a female, but most of my sexual fantasies are between two guys. Most of the things I've seen about sexual fantasies have stated that who you fantasize about is who you are attracted to. So does this mean I'm attracted to gay guys?

While fantasies can sometimes be about who we're attracted to, for sure, just as often they aren't. Plenty of people have fantasies about things they wouldn't be interested in trying. Attraction, on the other hand, is about real people - who you find yourself attracted to in person.

Of course, at some point you may very well find yourself attracted to a guy who identifies as gay, but fantasies and attraction aren't necessarily linked as strongly as you seem to be thinking.

Does that help?

If I've learned anything from reading fanfic, it's that there sure are a *ton* of straight women who fantasize about man on man action.

There's a ton of possible reasons for that. For one, many straight women enjoy fantasizing about men in sexy situations. A lot of people fantasize about watching other people have sex. Combine the two, and maybe your subconscious just kind of overlooks the societal notion that there's supposed to be a woman in there someplace. And that's definitely not the only possible explanation.

The only way you know who you're attracted to is to notice how you respond to real people in real life.
