How often do gay men have anal sex? 

To learn more about gay men and anal sex, Bespoke Surgical conducted an online survey and asked 600 Americans about their experiences with anal. To improve the reliability of the data, researchers selected self-identified gay men to participate in the research.

According to their learnings, 13 percent of gay men have anal sex daily, 24 percent have anal twice a month, and 39 percent have anal couple of times a week. Of the participants, one in six claims to have sex less than once yearly.

When asked about prepping for sex, only 42 percent of gay men use an anal douching, with 21 percent declaring they “sometimes do so,” and 38 percent stating they seldom or “never do.” The researchers also found that gay men who have anal sex daily are 1.3 – 2.1 times more likely to use an anal cleansing product that their less active counterparts.

Surprisingly, just 37 percent of gay men use a condom when engaging in anal sex, while 21 percent “occasionally do” and 16 percent “never do.”
