Study Reveals Complexity of Gay Men’s Relationships

Sydney, Australia (10 November 2015) – Results of a national survey of gay men’s relationships suggest that their partnerships are highly varied and far more complex than just whether they are monogamous or not.

Of the 4215 men who participated in the study, almost 70 percent reported having a regular partner, but this included 26 percent with two or more regular partners. 

“The diversity of partnerships observed through this study indicates the complexity of gay and bisexual men’s sexual behaviour,” said Professor Garrett Prestage. 

The Monopoly Study was a collaboration between the Kirby Institute and the Australian Research Centre in Sex Health and Society. You can read the full statement here; and the study itself here.
