Sex—it may not be challenging to learn about but difficult to enjoy. The majority of us get the basics of sex education in our early teens. Magazine headlines teach a lot. But even then, some topics are still forbidden.

In recent years, substantial advancements have been made in gay rights. Still, the idea of gay sex is yet considered taboo. Most popular magazines rarely cover gay matters. What is more, even if they do, they rarely include the private details of gay sex. Thankfully that is starting to change.

Straight or Gay: Promiscuity is Equal 

Many believe that gay people sleep around more than straight people. However, a recent study of roughly 3.2 million gay and heterosexual individuals reports that all were equally promiscuous. Six is the average number of partners for both gay and straight, men and women alike.  Also, 98% of gay people have had sex with less than 20 people, and for 99% of straight people.

Sex is Not Just Anal

It is popular belief that sex between two gay men is always anal sex. Is that true? Not necessarily. One study of 25,000 gay and bisexual men shows that only 36% of men reported being the recipient during anal sex, whereas 34% said they were the giver. There are many nuances associated with having anal intercourse, including proper hygiene, lube, protection, abdominal pain, and much more. In fact, of all the sexual behavior men reported during their last sexual event, anal related sexual activity was the least common.

To that end, the prostate gland is the male g-spot. Stimulating it can be done through anal penetration or externally near the anus. Still, only a relative few interviewed frequently orgasm from anal sex alone. One survey reported that of 7,153 gay men, 24% of said they almost always orgasm just from anal stimulation, while 37% said they could sometimes.

Animals Enjoy Homosexual Intercourse

Many mammals, insects, fish, and birds naturally engage in homosexual intercourse. Scientists report that as much as 8% of male domestic sheep show a distinctive preference for other males, even when there are fertile ewes (females) ready to have sex.

The Bigger Penis, The Better The Sex?

In Atlanta, GA, roughly 52% percent of gay men said size definitely matters to them. However, they may have their work cut out for them since only 8% of the men interviewed claimed to be above average in size. The truth is, size can matter to some, but it does not always for most. Most men merely yearn for an intimate, loving relationship that satisfies their emotional and sexual needs. Penis size does not usually factor into that sort of relationship, especially if you are proficient at knowing how to use your sword.

Every Man Wants To Top

In the survey mentioned above of 7,153 gay men, merely 16% said they preferred to top when having sex, while 41% men wanted to bottom. Even so, the majority of men say that they enjoy switching it up. Switching up allows versatility, generosity, and equal play time. What could be better!
