More than 40% of London has had or would have gay sex

New Time Out survey reveals what London does between the sheets, and gay sex seems to be very high on the list

More than 40% of London has had or would have gay sex
14 February 2013

An amazing 60% of London’s women and 23% of the UK capital’s men either have had or would have a same-sex experience.

That means almost 42% of the city’s population are in to gay sex.

It’s the shock figure coming out of a Time Out survey which also reveals 80% of Londoners watch porn, three quarters think they are better than average in bed and half would sleep with their best friend.

Among other statistics, it also revealed that gay men were getting a lot more sex than others. It reports 12 of gay guys claim to have had over 100 sexual partners. Just one in one hundred straight men said the same and only a tiny 0.006% of women.

The average partners-per-person is 13 for straight men and 60 for gay men.

But if that makes it sound like the British capital is a sexual utopia, don’t be fooled.

Londoners confessed a host of embarrassing sexual incidents, including passing wind, being caught and getting cramp.

And, the people having sex most often: not the young, free and single after all – but happily married couples. Presumably with each other.

You can find more results, graphs and maps to show you London’s most sexed-up neighborhoods here.
