Study Shows Big Increase in Acceptance & Practice of Homosexuality


A study shows an increase in both homosexual sex and acceptance of homosexuality among Americans. While the number of people who are now reporting homosexual activity has doubled since 1990, it's still a pretty small number of the population. What's more interesting is the huge increase in acceptance of homosexuality since the 1990s, which used to be as low as 13 percent. Now, from a low of 13 percent in the 1990s, 49% of Americans now believe homosexual behavior "is not wrong at all." Read the story for yourself at this link.

 Here's an excerpt:
A growing number of Americans are having gay sex, or at least admitting to it. And that's OK with more and more of us.


"People over time are reporting more same-sex sexual experiences than ever before," said Brooke Wells, a social psychologist at Widener University's Center for Human Sexuality Studies.

The behavioral trend, reflected in an annual survey conducted between 1973 and 2014, was fueled largely by people who had sex with both men and women. There has been little change in the number of people reporting exclusively homosexual behavior.

The changes were reported Wednesday in the Archives of Sexual Behavior. The research team included faculty from Widener, Florida Atlantic, and San Diego State Universities. A total of 33,728 people answered the survey over the 41-year period.

The number of U.S. adults who said they had at least one same-sex sexual partner doubled between the early 1990s - that question wasn't asked earlier - and the early 2010s, from 3.6 to 8.7 percent for women and from 4.5 to 8.2 percent for men. Bisexual behavior rose from 3.1 to 7.7 percent, accounting for most of the change.

The survey found that only 1.7 percent of men and 0.9 percent of women said they had exclusively homosexual sex.

Meanwhile, the percentage of respondents who said they believed same-sex behavior was "not wrong at all" rose dramatically, from 11 percent in 1973 and 13 percent in 1990 to 49 percent in 2014.
