A new study conducted by George Mason University, Indiana University, and Online Buddies, Inc. polled 24,787 gay and bisexual men between the ages of 18 and 87 in the US.

The study aimed to "document the sexual behaviors that gay and bisexually identified men report during their most recent male-partnered sexual event and to describe the situational characteristics and participants' evaluation of these events."

The majority of the participants were white (84.6%) and identified as gay (85.9%). 57.4% received a bachelor's degree or higher.
