  •  See, I agree with that. (none)
    "Most" could be 60% or even 70%.  But 92%?  Heck, not even 92% of men are straight!
    •  You'd be surprised. (none)
      A good friend of mine who is gay one day came up to me in the cafe we used to hang out in and said, in a really upset way, "I slept with a woman!" I asked him how it happened and he said, "I don't know! There was wine!"

      So, I guess Kinsey was right about most people swinging both ways in the right circumstances.

    •  True, but . . . (none)
      Most gay men I know (I'm straight, so maybe they are jsust BSing me?) have at least tried to be straight (more than once)at some time in their lives,  so they could move the number.

      •  Tried to be straight... (none)
        I think you'll find that means they had a "beard" on their arm at some major function, such as a high school prom, or that they dated women who'd taken chastity oaths (my understanding is that they're very popular with closeted guys in some areas).  Pretending to be straight by boffing just shy of a dozen women--that stretches it a bit for me.

      •  I've got a few.... (none)
        ...lesbian friends who've had more heterosexual sex than I have, and I'm a straight guy. And I know a straight guy who fellated two guys, just to see what it was like. As far as I know, he's only been with women since then.
      •  Two (none)
        I'm gay but have slept with two women.  Sort of proud to say that I have slept with only slightly more men.  Serial monogamist, and happily so.

    •  A lifetime is a long time. (none)
      Ten isn't really that high. Let's say you're sexually active for 20 years, that's only one every other year.

      Not a lot, especially when most will ring up several or more just in college.

    •  Statistics... (none)
      Yea that is phrased the wrong way...it obviously assumes 92% of straight men (which I am assuming is the larger majority of men).

      You would be surprised I think if your straight guy friends told you the truth on how many women they have slept with.  The thing is, truth.  I don't know if women have a natural adversion to a man that has had a lot of sexual partners or what, but it seems like they never want to 'stay' with someone that 'knows his way around'.  Very odd...maybe something biological.  All (yes, All imo) know this...and lie about how many people they have slept with because it does not fit into the 'relationship view' of the woman he is pursuing.

      I gave up on that a long while ago...if a woman asks I tell her the truth, because quite frankly, if she is asking, it is doubtful a long term relationship is in your future with her, since it should not matter at all if you are falling in love with someone.
