First thought that came up was, "...and the author accessed this information HOW?"
Second thought... "flawed sampling, anyone?" The "Online dating site" in question is:
Houston ChronicleSeekingArrangement.com, the "No. 1 sugar daddy dating site." The site polled 11,000 of its gay members, asking how many join dating websites to just "hook up," as well as which cities have the most promiscuous gay singles.
Not exactly Masters and Johnson here.
Lots of members I see, but I don't see how the hunt for a hot hookup with Thurston Howell the (Fifth, by now?) can be translated to an assessment of geographic promiscuity among gay men. That would be like me polling BGCLive (hush, you...) then coming up with "Lookee! Here are the top ten cities for gay men who own Siamese cats!" My sample would probably be more reliable.
Maybe that's not what the poll taker intended, but it's what the article writer infers. ("Secrets about gay promiscuity REVEALED!")
Houston ChronicleAccording to the results, 82-percent of gay men admit to joining dating websites just for sex. The site also asked how many partners the same gay males had over the course of a year. Poll results were based on location of those surveyed and how many admitted to having 10 or more sexual partners per year.
Third thought, "Is the author revealing to the readers his personal assumption that gay (self-identified) men === promiscuous men?"
Fourth thought, "does the Chronicle have editors, anymore?"
Fifth thought was, "PLEASE, let there not be a comment section... phew! Good."
