    Not at all, I'm a straight woman and I consider it one of my favorite shows ever. It's amazing.

    I don't know if straight men would want to watch this show. I'm Bi-sexual and I love this show.

    They could, easily. If they weren't so closed minded and insecure that is. No offense to straight guys of course.

    I think the amount gay sex shown is a bit shocking! for straight men. I'm a straight woman and this is the best show I have ever watched. Though 90% of my reason to watch it is Gale Harold. Yes, when I started watching it, my husband hated just hated it.In fact he would not let me see it with him around. So yes, I think I can definately say straight man are not cut out for queer as folk.

    And yet straight women can deal with all the lesbian stuff, sex and all just fine...I think straight guys can deal with the show fine if they're not closed minded or uptight.

    Well all I'll say is not all straight will have a problem, granted a lot of them are way to uptight to even admit the possibility that gay sex is actually no big deal to them, but the one or two enlightened staight guys out there should have no problem with it.

    Straight woman here, and I LOVE QAF. I've watched it with two different guys I was dating, and they both loved it. The first one was the one who introduced me to the show. Of course, though he was straight, he had been blown by a guy before and had gay roommates at the time. The other guy had actually also been blown by a guy before. Neither was gay nor really bisexual, but clearly they were both pretty open-minded. I don't know how a closed-minded straight guy would feel. But, as a straight woman who is phenomenal in the sack, I wouldn't get with the closed-minded type of straight man anyway. So, well, straight men SHOULD watch it, if they know what's good for them.
