Allure magazine recently conducted its first anti-aging survey, which questioned a sampling of 2,000 men and women across the nation. The study examined how every aspect of a person’s life is affected as they age, along with attitudes and perceptions of aging in pop culture.
In addition to uncovering differences between the perception of aging men and women in pop culture, the survey offered several findings highlighting differences between LGBT respondents and heterosexuals.
According to a press release for the study:
· LGBT respondents are more likely to be attracted to people older than themselves by more than 10 years compared to straight respondents
· LGBT respondents think they attract people younger than themselves by more than 10 years more so than straight respondents do
· 73% of LGBT respondents think that women have more pressure to look young now than they did 10 years ago versus only 46% of LGBT respondents think that men have that same pressure
Additional key findings from the survey are located at Allure.com. with the full results to be published in the magazine’s April issue.
