Sex: Bad

Quite dreadful, prurient journalism by Gay Star News - note the clickbait photo, and hopelessly unreliable online survey (Oh a poll by men who log onto the GMFA website, aimed at gay men in London with HIV, that'll be representative) .

Something closer to the facts...

Ian Howley of GMFA told us his thoughts on these stats: “We know that the majority of gay and bisexual men use condoms some of the time. There is an idea out there that everyone doesn’t use condoms, and for a lot of people who responded to this survey this is the case. But many of these men are in long term relationships, or are married/civil partnered or said they were in a monogamous relationship. When you look at these stats, it’s only a small percentage of gay men, who are having lots of unprotected anal sex, who are at a high level of risk. So to say everyone barebacks all of the time is untrue”

  1. And they follow the daft modern fad of using "the majority of" when "most" does perfectly fine. Probably makes them feel intellectual.
