The sexual habits of the Indonesians are determined by the various religious beliefs that have existed in the country over the years:

1. Animism (hyang) sees sex as both sacred and fun. Male shamans are often gay.

2. Hinduism, which came to Indonesia 2,000 years ago, has a bisexual tradition.

The erotic dancing, both male and female, found throughout much of Indonesia, has links to Hinduism.

Arisan! An Indonesian film featuring gay kissing became a box office hit in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country. Playing to packed cinemas in Jakarta, "Arisan!" is all about homosexuality.

3. Buddhism, which existed in Indonesia at the same time as Hinduism, taught moderation in sexual matters.

Indonesians adopted both Hindu and Buddhist ideas, and combined them with animist ideas.

The Buddhist idea of moderation has a firm grip on Indonesians.


4. A very moderate form of Islam came to Indonesia in the 13th century, but Islam did not become the main religion until the 16th century.

These moderate Moslems are bisexual.

Professor I'bn Saweed Suq'un of Al-Azhar University, says the rate of homosexuality in the Muslim world runs close to 80% in men. REVEALING STUDY: MOST MUSLI

5. Christianity replaced animism in the eastern islands in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The Dutch, who ran Indonesia as a colony, included homophobic Calvinists.

In Holland, in the 17th century, the Calvinists beheaded lots of gay people.


Back in the 1990s, the Indonesians did not have a word for 'gay' or 'homosexual'.

Thus, there could be little in the way of homophobia.

Indonesians are naturally bisexual.

This does not mean that they go in for much in the way of deeply intimate gay sex.

It simply means that the boys usually go around with the boys and the girls usually go around with the girls.

In Indonesia Gay sexual intercourse is reportedly relatively rare.

But you may see an Indonesian policeman sitting on another policeman's lap.

President Sukarno and friend. In the late 1950s, the CIA produced a porn film using an actor who looked like President Sukarno of Indonesia. (Indonesia Killing Hope William Blum). However, in the 1950s, Indonesians were generally tolerant of their president's love life, and so the CIA was wasting its time.

In 2003, in Indonesia, a proposed national bill to criminalize homosexuality failed to be enacted.

Boys dancing for Moslem men. "Beardless boys are not regarded as male, so sex with them is not considered as homosexuality." Islam

The fundamentalists are now trying to change all that and put labels on people.

They want to divide and rule.

In 2016, Mad Nasir, Indonesia's Minister of Higher Education has declared that affectionate gay students should be banned from university campuses.

According to Gay life in Indonesia:

"In 2002, the South Sulawesi administration became the first to pass an anti-prostitution bylaw that criminalizes homosexuality. Two years later, the Palembang administration passed a similar bylaw."


There is a long history of same-sex activity in Indonesia.

"The warok come from East Java, from Ponorogo. They started as the followers of a poet in a fifteenth century kingdom. They're supposed to have magical powers, but only if they avoid sex with women. So they have sex with boys."


Dancing boys - Indonesia.

There were male priestesses among the Dayak, the Buginese and the Toraja.

There were transvestite male-to-female dancers in Java.

At the courts of Aceh and Bali there were young boys who had sex with men.


"Sedattis were catamites, dancing boys. You got them in both north and south Sumatra. Their job was to entertain men. There was something similar in other parts of Indonesia. On Bali, boys, called gandrungs, would dress up as girls, and dance for the men."


Dutch East Indies.

Many of the Dutch who ran Indonesia as a colony were single and gay.

Asian societies were tolerant of gay people.


To sum up:

Indonesia has a tradition of being liberal, communitarian and moderate.

The Powers-That-Be want to divide the population into warring factions.

The Saudis, encouraged by Mossad and the CIA, will continue to promote the extremist form of Islam in Indonesia.

Meanwhile the Saudis will continue to visit the sleazy gay bars and clubs in Jakarta and the Puncak.



  1. How to be moderate in the midst of polarising sexual ethics.

    The best/worst of weapons in the hands public exploiters? Of all aspects in life a push and pull media wind-up. Condemn abuse but let’s keep it - wink-wink - close to the edge. Gay-hate/hate gay-haters.

    Bi-sexual without question, I assume is relatively low? Experimental amongst adults this past decade or two - s’pose, ever-increasing.

    And moving things on they go...

  3. I saw a group young Europeans once, maybe they were Spanish, I don't know, going around the Millennium Dome. But two of the young men were holding hands. I had seen that before when traveling around Europe. I don't think it has anything to do with being gay. They're just friends. In the UK we would be terrified to do that. What a shame.
