Contrary to Popular Belief, Most Gay Men Are NOT Having Anal Sex

There seem to be so many stereotypes concerning the sex lives of gay men, but just exactly how accurate are they? Depending on what study you read or what research paper you come across, it appears that most gay men do not regularly engage in anal sex. As a matter of fact, the range of gay men who actively enjoy anal sex is somewhere between 36%-50%, depending on your source. (Most research points to the lower end of that range.) Do these findings surprise you?

The Good Life reports, "In the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers from Indiana University and George Mason University surveyed nearly 25,000 gay and bisexual men in an effort to better understand how they experience sex. The study hopes to combat "the almost exclusive focus" on HIV in most academic research on gay male sexual behavior, as well as to increase understanding of the "diversity and complexity of these men’s sexual lives." To do that, they asked gay and bisexual-identified men ages 18 to 87 to chart their most recent sexual experience. Did it involve kissing, cuddling, masturbation, oral sex, anal sex?

The results: Despite the popular perception, "sexual behaviors involving the anus were least common," researchers found. Around 75 percent of participants reported kissing their partners, giving oral sex, and/or receiving oral sex in their most recent sexual encounters. By contrast, only 36 percent of men reporting receiving anal sex and 34 percent of men reporting giving it."

Why do some men abstain from anal sex? One could assume it may be choice, stigma or anxiety, to name a few. That being said, the fact or the matter is that all gays do not engage in anal sex. There are obviously many men gay men who prefer not to partake. The truth is, enjoying anal sex is not synonymous with being a gay man, which may comfort some of the straight men who read this blog and just happen to enjoy anal stimulation. (Stay tuned straight guys, later this week we will be discussing your anal habits!)

Being gay is about having an deep emotional relationships with another man and not necessarily about the type of sex acts one actively participates in. There are many gay men who have loving and fulfilling relationships and a tremendously fulfilling sex life without participating in anal sex.

Star Trek Beyond, Looking, and Absolutely Fabulous made for a Big Gay Weekend!

It was a great weekend for gay men in terms of entertainment, with three fabulous movie choices. Did you watch any or all of the movies above, and if so what were your thoughts?

Star Trek Beyond has landed atop the weekend box office. Paramount's latest outing with the Starship Enterprise soared to $59.6 million in North American ticket sales, knocking Universal's "The Secret Life of Pets" from the No. 1 spot, according to studio estimates Sunday. (Source)

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie - Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone are back with a drunken, crazed slapstick vengeance in "Absolutely Fabulous The Movie!" And fans would expect nothing less from these "utterly useless," (to quote the screenwriter) yet divine ladies. Now if you have never heard of "AbFab" or Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, then your LGBT card should be revoked until you binge the series. It's become a rightful part of the gay cultural fabric. (Source)

Looking: The Movie - It's a bittersweet finale, but one we are lucky to have. "Looking" could continued for many seasons but the series will forever exist in this small and contained collection. The honestly that lives in "Looking" will thrive on HBO GO's servers for years, allowing younger gay audiences to stumble on for years to come. Unlike "Queer As Folk," the relevancy of "Looking" will likely stand the test of time. (Source)

This Young Gay Republican Wants to Explain Why the GOP is Better for the Gays

So why would an LGBTer support Trump? Here is one young mans point of view. (H/T-Instinct)

As the nominees for the 2016 presidential election have become more clear, a new survey finds LGBT voters support Hillary Clinton for president over Donald Trump by a 4-1 margin.

The New York-based Whitman Insight Strategies made the findings public on Wednesday as a result of a nationwide survey it conducted of 338 likely voters who identified as LGBT.

According to the survey, 84 percent of likely LGBT voters back Clinton, compared to the 16 percent who support Trump, a significant margin showing more than 4 in 5 LGBT voters would vote for the former secretary of state.

That shows greater support for the Democratic candidate in 2016 among LGBT voters than exit polls showed among gay, lesbian and bisexual voters in 2012. At the time, exit polls revealed President Obama won 76 percent of the LGBT vote, compared to the 16 percent won by then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
