Are ‘Gay’ Men More Promiscuous than Straights?

Excerpted from Surveys Reveal Sex Practices of Homosexuals, published Sept 15, 2006, by Agape Press:

A survey by The Advocate, a homosexual magazine, revealed that promiscuity is a reality among homosexuals. The poll found that 20 percent of homosexuals said they had had 51-300 different sex partners in their lifetime, with an additional 8 percent having had more than 300

Here are the actual stats for question 9:

Homosexual males only (2294 responses)
104 or 4.5% had 0 same-sex partners in their lifetime
79 or 3.4% had only 1 same-sex partner
330 or 14.4% had 2-5 same-sex partners
264 or 11.5% had 6-10 same-sex partners
306 or 13.3% had 11-20 same-sex partners
399 or 17.4% had 21-50 same-sex partners
288 or 12.6% had 51-100 same-sex partners
276 or 12.0% had 101-300 same-sex partners
248 or 10.8% had more than 300 same-sex partners

(The total of homosexual males in this study reporting more than 50 sex partners in their lifetime is 35.4%. See The Advocate’s website for lesbian-only and combined male and female stats.)


Additionally, question 14 asks Have you ever had sex with more than one same-sex partner at the same time?

Homosexual males only (2304 total responses)
No, never – 893 or 38.8%
Yes, 3-ways only – 748 or 32.5%
Yes, more than 3-ways on occasion – 663 or 28.8%

(Question: Do you suppose 61% of heterosexuals participate in group sex?)

A survey in Ireland by the Gay Men’s Health Project found that almost half of homosexuals said they were having unprotected sex.

The Advocate survey…found that 55 percent of homosexuals said they never (20%), occasionally (10%) or usually (25%) practiced so-called “safer sex.”

The actual stats for question 13:

Homosexual males only (2304 responses)
Always – 1075 or 46.7%
Occasionally – 243 or 10.5%
Usually – 651 or 28.3%
Never – 335 or 14.5%

…The fact that many homosexuals appear to live their lives in sexual overdrive does not seem to concern leaders in the movement. In an editorial from the same issue (August 15) in which the survey results were published, The Advocate said: “[Homosexuals] have been proud leaders in the sexual revolution that started in the 1960s, and we have rejected attempts by conservatives to demonize that part of who we are.”
