CDC Survey Finds A Surprising Number Of Straight Dudes Have Had Gay Sex

 

It’s happening, folks. The world is turning more gay by the minute and we’ve got the numbers to prove it.

According to the latest national survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more Americans are identifying as bisexual than ever before. Not only that, but more straight guys are admitting to having had gay sex.

Researchers interviewed more than 9,000 men and women ages 18 to 44 years between 2011 and 2013. Respondents were asked about the types of sexual experiences they’ve had, whether they are attracted to the same or opposite sex and how they label their sexual orientations.

Here’s what they learned: 1.9 percent of men said they were homosexual, which is on par with the CDC’s last survey conducted between 2006-2010. Meanwhile, 2 percent of men said they identified as bisexual, up from 1.2 percent in the last survey.

And this is where it gets really interesting. Because 6.2 percent of men said they had engaged in either oral or anal sex with another guy.

Let’s grab our calculators and do a little basic math here…

If 1.9 percent of men said they were gay and 2 percent said they were bisexual, but 6.2 percent said they had engaged in same-sex sexual activity, that means 2.3 percent of men engaging in same-sex sexual activity are straight. Or at least straight-identifying. Or maybe bi-curious?

“You do expect some differences,” Casey E. Copen, the lead author of the study, said. “For some people … they may or may not have had the experiences they’re contemplating, [especially] if they’re younger.”

Our next question is, obviously, where do we find these men?
