‘Undesirable’ Gay Men Have Riskier Sex

A new report in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior scientifically verifies what we all already know– that the gay community’s obsession with beauty has consequences. Researchers at the University of Toronto interviewed dozens of gay men to determine what qualities were considered most desirable and found “that young, white, middle-class men are considered much more sexually desirable than men who are racial minorities, over 40 and poor” and that “for gay men, being considered sexually undesirable can have serious health consequences, ranging from psychological issues to risky sexual behavior.” The study notes that gay men are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior if they consider their partner more attractive.
