Down and Dirty with the Sex Stats – are you giving him what he wants?

The results of a new Gay and Bisexual Men’s National Sex Survey are out!

Tired of men’s sexual behaviour studies being dominated by heterosexual norms, a new research was carried out to shed some light on the sexual repertoire of gay and bisexually identifying men.
Collected via an internet survey, over 24500 men aged 18-87 were surveyed from all 50 states of the USA and compiled into a report published at the end of August this year. (I wonder if the authors managed to engage in any “hands on” research…)

Now, a fun, interactive summary of the stats has been compiled by our friends over at manhunt.com – check it out.

It seems that us young’uns are more likely to bottom, yet the older you are the less likely you are to experience pain whilst doing it!

You might be surprised to learn that the last time they had sex 16.4% of guys ejaculated in the mouth with a further 15.6% on the face – aren’t we a dirty lot! Perhaps even more surprising for some is that 55.4% of guys said they like to swallow cum, or is that just surprising for us “well-behaved” British folk over here? It would be interesting to see how this figure compares with women…

Personally, I was surprised to learn that 4/5 sexual acts occur within a house. Looks like the days of tea rooms and cottaging might be over for many. Yet, there are subtle indicators throughout the stats to suggest that promiscuity has far from declined – e.g. only 75% of those surveyed kissed their partner last time they had sex; and 36.7% of guys never have sex again with their first sexual partner.

For me, the big stat this is missing is how many guys identify as top, vers or bottom. Plus there’s no mention of condom use. But otherwise this makes for an informative read! I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of it. How do you compare?

The full report is available from The Journal of Sexual Medicine. Oh, and in case you were wondering, from those surveyed: the mean age was 39.2; 79.9% identified as homosexual; and the ethnic split was 84.6% white, 6.4% Latino and 3.6% African American.

The Perfect Excuse For You To Grow That Moustache You’ve Always Secretly Wanted

Been yearning to grow a moustache but your boss/partner/dog won’t let you? Is your upper lip dying to show the world how stylish it can be? Well here’s your chance: November 1st marks the start of “Movember” all around the world! Thousands of men now have a valid excuse to leave their razor alone and to indulge in some [extra] self-grooming as they partake in this hearty awareness and fundraising campaign – all in the name of men’s health.

Let me allow the official site to explain more:

“On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

“Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.”

And if all that moustache growing seems like too much work, there are events and competitions to keep you interested, plus your valiant efforts are rewarded by Gala Parties all around the world at the end of month. OR, log on to the site and sponsor another guy’s epic handlebar tash.

Since 2003 over £100million has been raised in total! With the numbers involved growing year on year. And all you’ve got to do is…NOT shave! To find out more, get involved, or learn about the charitable beneficiaries, go to their website.
