  • Straights Are More Gay When Gay Is OK

    We like to think of sexual orientation as something that is pretty stable and that, once established during childhood or early adolescence, doesn’t change much. We certainly don’t think it can change in response to fleeting, casual influences from our environment.

What types of relationships are Americans having? A new study on Americans’ sexual #diversity sought to find out. As part of this study, researchers asked 1,420 partnered participants to indicate whether that #relationship was—during the past year—entirely #monogamous, monogamous but sexless, supposedly monogamous, an #openrelationship; or whether they had not discussed their relationship structure. In thinking about the past year, most of the participants reported being entirely monogamous (78%). More than 1 in 10 partnered respondents were currently in monogamous but sexless relationships (12%). Additionally, 4% were supposedly monogamous, 1.6% reported being in an open relationship, 2.5% had not discussed their relationship structure, and the remaining 1.4% identified their relationship in some other way. The takeaway? Despite growing representations in mainstream media of open relationships, the vast majority Americans are still wedded (pun intended) to #monogamy.
