Scientific Survey Confirms Boston Bisexual Boom, Seattle Blowjob Addiction

What if we told you that half of all Bostonians have posted a Craigslist sexytime ad? Would you be skeptical? Well, if you don’t believe us, maybe you’ll believe SCIENCE!

Unicorn Booty directs our attention to the work of Zamin Dharsi, an inquisitive young student who has produced a helpful infographic of who’s having sex where, in what amounts, and with what length of genitals. His findings may surprise you! Except for the one about how there are more gays in San Francisco than in Atlanta, in which case, well yeah.

Some elements of Zamin’s infographic are pretty indisputable, like how much more often the word “top” appears than “bottom.” In Atlanta, they are perfectly balanced; but in San Francisco “top” is 61% more frequent. Looks like Supervisor Bevan Dufty really did make good on his pledge!

But we are not entirely sure about all of Zamin’s calculations. For example, “1 in every 3 people in Minneapolis has posted a sex ad on Craigslist.” How do you figure? Zamin counts 8,664 ads, and the population of Minneapolis is 377,392 according to the 2007 Census, so even if you assume that everyone only posted once, that still works out to one in every 44 people. Maybe large crowds of people are sharing sex ads, so one ad equals a big group of people? For example, whenever a bunch of Republicans get together gay orgies cannot be far off.

    Wow. Another hard news piece from the new Queerty… *golf-clap*

    Whatsamatter? ‘Run out of real stories to publish?

    It can’t be very scientific when they can’t even spell ‘promiscuity’ properly.

  • SpireaX

    I was hoping the “new” Queerty would avoid this type of nonsense. It was good to hope.

  • Accidental Bear

    Totally enjoyable and pleasurable read! I love graphs! I was to busy laughing to notice any meaningless misspelled words. xoxo

    How does Boston = bisexual boom?

    Absolutely f***ing mind blowing. Queerty poz-bashes like nothing I’ve ever seen. The epidemic is downplayed and its victims are broadly painted as hastening about their own demise. Anyone who disagrees is selectively edited from the comments. Then, the site turns around and publishes this peice of ridiculous “research”, normalizing the very type of behavior that leads to HIV by telling us that in some cities more than half of all gay men are trolling for sex on the internet.

    @Mitch: Queerty is like a booze commercial making fun of drunks.

    Their methodology is suspect. For example, “looking for a top” and “top looking for…” would score equally as “top”, although they express opposite interests.

    where is NY in this graphic?!?

    –“Some elements of Zamin’s infographic are pretty indisputable, like how much more often the word “top” appears than “bottom.” In Atlanta, they are perfectly balanced; but in San Francisco “top” is 61% more frequent”–

    Nope. For the above words to match the infographic; Remove “more frequent” after the “61%”. Because, according to the graphic, the word “top” appears 61% of the time. Not 61% MORE than “bottom”.
