With this documentary Gay or Straight, is it a choice?, Thierry Berrod offers the 4th installment of his series on sexuality. After the passages leading from seduction to birth (Inner Adventure), after the evolution of juvenile love into adolescent desire (The Outer Adventure – From Baby To Kiss), and infidelity, the suffering of the break-up (Faithful Polygamists – From Kiss To Kiss), we depart on the discovery of the sources of homosexuality. 

Natural selection predisposes us to heterosexuality and reproduction. A portion of the population thinks this is a choice or a decision. But not only. Since several years science interrogates the roots of sexual orientation, homo and hetero. Have we really a choice?
