A controversial university study has come under fire for claiming that lesbian and bisexual attraction exists because'men think it's hot'. The offending report was published on Science Direct by Menelaos Apostolou, an assistant professor at the University of Nicosia in Cyprus. In his paper entitled'The evolution of female same-sex attraction: The male choice hypothesis', Apostolous comes to the conclusion that same-sex attraction in women stems from male desire - all based on his poll of 1,509 men. The academic went on to say in an interview that a'considerable proportion of men desire same-sex attractions in women', which he cites as a'possible reason' why women have them. But Apostolou's paper was met with derision on Twitter, with critics questioning why'not a single actual lesbian participated in the study'.
