A national sex survey conducted by Indiana University has found that 7% percent of women and 8% of men identify as gay.
The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, conducted by
researchers from the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana
University’s School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, queried the sexual experiences and condom use of 5,865 adolescents and adults ages 14 to 94. While 7% percent of women and 8% of men identified as gay, many more respondents reported same-sex sexual experiences.
Condom use was also found to be higher among minorities and young people.
