At least not according to some men who feel their sexual activities and their sexual identities don't have to -- and do not -- align. In this episode of The HuffPost Love+Sex Podcast co-hosts Carina Kolodny and Noah Michelson speak with two of these men: Mike, 36, and Christopher, 20, both of whom identify as straight even though they have sex with other men. Kolodny and Michelson also chat with Chelsea Reynolds, a doctoral candidate at the University of Minnesota , whose investigations of online identities was partly inspired by her discovery of straight men cruising Craiglist to find male sexual partners: If you want to download and/or listen to the podcast offline, head to iTunes or  Stitcher .
