5 Ways Gays Outflank Straights When Hunting For Love Online

GAYS DON’T WANT STRAIGHT CAKE

Whenever ignorant soldiers worry about homos checking out their bodies in the shower, it’s mostly a vain projection — they wish we wanted them. But by tracking how often gay users actually scope out straight profiles, OK Cupid found that only 0.6% of gay men and 0.1% of lesbians have ever done so. Overall only 0.13% of straight people’s profile visitors are gay which suggests that while bedding a hetero remains a gay sex fantasy, few homos ever actually pursue it online. The more interesting question might have been how often straights check out gay profiles, especially since our sex lives remain so interesting to anti-gay foes and gay-friendly pals alike.
