How Many Germans Have Had Gay Sex? Survey Says… 13%

By Stephen Fuchs on

A recent YouGov survey in Germany asked respondents to answer questions about their sexual history, and while the survey covers a range of topics from monogamy and masturbation, a set of questions centered around homosexual experiences, which roughly 13 percent admitted to having.

Roughly one in seven claimed to have slept with someone of the same sex, and 8 percent of the 13 had said that they also have experience in bed with the opposite sex. Of course there will be those who swing both ways.

As we all know, no survey will ever capture the real number, and this survey does reveal that 9 percent of respondents claim to be virgins, but there are surely others that did not want to acknowledge their secret same-sex encounters. But the latest numbers at least give us an idea.

Oh, and if you want to know about the masturbation numbers… men masturbate more than women — almost four times as much.
