Study: 40% of Gay Men Recently Engaged In Anal Sex

Researchers studying the sexual behaviors of gay men have found that fewer than 40% of their study group reported recently having had anal sex. Research leader Joshua G. Rosenberger:

Of all sexual behaviors that men reported occurring during their last sexual event, those involving the anus were the least common [less than 40 percent]. There is certainly a misguided belief that ‘gay sex equals anal sex,’ which is simply untrue much of the time.

As Think Progress points out, this study goes towards dispelling the myths of gays and gay sex.

The new data provides an important opportunity to dispel the myth that all gay and bi men have (and should have) anal sex….All of these findings can help advocates promote sexual lives for men who have sex with men that are both healthier and more personally fulfilling.

See NARTH, this is how a study is actually performed.



Originally from Denver, now living in the Low Countries of Europe. Spent four years in the Navy, got out when I realized I was a big ole flaming mo. Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
