In NYC Straight Is the New Gay

I didn't know this. You can be a straight man and only have sex with men in NYC. No really. All Headline News has this article Nearly 10 Percent Of "Straight" NYC Men Only Have Sex With Men. I may be a backwards Christian hick from Ohio but I was pretty sure that when you decided as a man to only have sex with other men, you were booted out of the Straight Club. The article says:
According to WebMD, nearly all studies about sexual behavior find that the number of men who report having sex with men is higher than the number who identify themselves as gay.

Pathela's team asked men if they were bisexual, gay or straight. Then they asked about specific sexual behaviors.

Their findings include:
  • Straight men who have sex with men report fewer sex partners than gay men.
  • Straight men who have sex with men report fewer STDs in the past year than gay men.
  • Straight men who have sex with men are less likely than gay men to report using a condom during their last sexual encounter.
  • Straight men who have sex with men are more likely to be foreign born than gay men.

The survey also found that a straight-identified man who is having sex with men is more likely to be married than a straight man who has sex with women.

The study appears in the Sept. 19 issue of the "Annals of Internal Medicine."
In a nutshell, they find that 10% of stright men in New York City are "Gay Lite". They studied 4200 men many who were foreign born usuing translators where necessary. So I wonder how much of this Gay/Straight man stuff is merely lost in translation. I personally believe this survey was to further the gay agenda more so than to study STD risk factors. After all if 10% of all straight men only have sex with men then the gay lifestyle becomes less perverted and more mainstream. Are they sure it was the Annals of Internal Medicine?
