Straight guys are having a surprising amount of gay sex, according to the latest national survey.
Researchers have interviewed more than 9,000 men and women aged between 18 and 44 between 2011 and 2013. Americans were asked to talk about their sexual experiences, who they are attracted to and how they label their sexual orientation.
And guys who identify as straight are having quite a bit of gay sex.
The CDC learned 1.9% of men said they were gay and 2% were bisexual – up from 1.2% from the last survey.
However, 6.2% of men said they had engaged in either oral or anal sex with another guy.
So this means, at least 2.3% of men engaging in gay sex who say they are straight.
‘You do expect some differences,’ said Casey E. Copen, the lead author of the study. ‘For some people … they may or may not have had the experiences they’re contemplating, [especially] if they’re younger.’
