    This was originally written as a comment to this post: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4049112

    I was curious about the site's user base so I did a fairly simple analysis based on the data I crawled from this site.

    Here are some results:

    1. Based on all the users who disclosed their ethnicity, on this site:

    Of the 131128 people,

    White : 55.48 %
    Asian : 12.49 %
    Black : 9.25 %
    Latino : 8.02 %
    Mixed Race : 6.78 %
    Other : 2.67 %
    Middle Eastern : 2.27 %
    South Asian : 1.54 %
    American Indian : 0.93 %
    Pacific Islander : 0.58 %

    2. Based on MOTD's of the last 365 days on the site:

    Of the last 365 MOTD's:
    ----------------------
    White : 85.21 %
    Mixed Race : 4.93 %
    Black : 3.01 %
    Latino : 1.64 %
    Asian : 1.64 %
    Unspecified : 1.37 % <--- I checked their profiles and I wasn't sure
    Middle Eastern : 1.37 %
    Other : 0.55 %
    American Indian : 0.27 %

    Note that a few MOTD's (such as theguynextdoor) didn't disclose their ethnicity so I had to manually checked their profiles. theguynextdoor was classified as white. I hope I was right.


    I'm not gonna draw any conclusions here. Now, I'm not trying to use the data to make a point about race or racism. My original intention of gathering the data was more about the user base and their average age but the post mentioned above( http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4049112) made me realized I could gather data on user ethnicity too. And that was what I did (along with calculating average age).

    Now here are some personal thoughts about race that have nothing to do with the data I presented above. Personally I don't feel offended when white guys are not interested in me because of my race. But I also think preference is one thing, racism is another. I usually hold my judgement. I'm not gonna victimize myself. And as a general rule, I stay away from racists. Staying away from negative energy (and fucked up mindset) has always served me well.


    Also... In case you are interested... the average age of users on this site by race:

    Average age of users by race
    ----------------------------
    White : 35.51
    Latino : 29.65
    Pacific Islander : 29.62
    Other : 29.49
    Middle Eastern : 29.20
    Black : 28.84
    South Asian : 28.56
    Mixed Race : 28.44
    American Indian : 28.09
    Asian : 27.30

    Of course there are people who wrote that they were 99 years old on their profiles. But I think a few such cases don't affect the result much.


    Full thing is located here: https://github.com/gnijuohz/ipython-notebooks/blob/master/pydata/realjock.ipynb.

    There are 2 pie charts there... if that makes it more attractive to some people... (probably not)


    Now here's a silly question: white spanish people, are they white or latino?

    P.S. I think SuperPump(http://www.realjock.com/SuperPump, one of the six Asian MOTD's in the past 365 days) is seriously (one of) the hottest guy(s) on this site. icon_wink.gif


    I don't know why the fuck some people are so sensitive here. I'm merely put on some data (which I gathered out of interest) and made no conclusion whatsoever and they are already ready to attack. I have highlighted part of my text (even rewrote) to make it more clear to some people.

    I'm not here with an agenda and I have no intention of arguing with some sensitive jerks. I have a life.

    To those who say I should get a better hobby (better than some data analysis to satisfy my intellectual need... Like what? What the fuck is better than this? Arguing about fucking nothing with you?)

    And, Get a fucking better hobby than being sensitive about a post on a fucking ugly forum.

    On a site with an average age of the users being over 32, you thought people would be more mature. HA.



    Peace out.

    crazycrazydoesdoes saidFunny how the racists are the first to attack. Radd, you're supposed to the first responder to every race thread, what happened? icon_lol.gif

    I'm assuming the OP had some sort of algorithm and didn't go through all bajillion profiles icon_lol.gif


    I only crawled users with their ethnicity specified... And MOTD's of the past 365 days.

    This isn't surprising one bit.
    Actually, especially with gay men, it's kind of to be expected.

    Also not that it matters but I think superpump looks most likely half Asian.

    Anyway thanks for compiling the data.
    The results reflect what most people here were already expecting any way.

    P.S. I too do not understand why so many white guys get so defensive about data like this.
    I mean it's a reflection of data that they also represent so it's not like it was made up.
    Maybe they refuse to accept they have some inherent internal racism that they don't want to admit they have or something idk.
    It's not like it is not known that the white race is the most sought after in the gay community so I don't know why when data reflects this very known fact, some of them get their panties all in a twist.

    What exactly would be "Other" with 2.67% classifying themselves as such? I can't think of anything not represented on that list. Interesting to see the breakdown of users though.

    I have no idea. Other is offered as an option for ethnicity on this site. There are 3500 people who chose this option here: http://www.realjock.com/gay-personals/other

    I think it might mean "I don't want to leave it as blank but I also don't want to disclose it." for most of them.

    Ignore him! I liked your analysis. It was interesting, just from a perspective of another guy who deals with data on a daily basis. How did you get the data of all the MOTD?
    Can you scrape that data also from this website?

    Ofc there will be members here who will dismiss data like this as a non factor but it's actually quite interesting to see how overrated the white men are here. I never vote for MOTD either way.

    I've already discussed this at great length in another post.

    "Other" represents the martians invading this site.

    This is all very real.

    I think Martian is a nationality not a race. Anyways

    There's a statistics forum? I bet that sees as much traffic as the sports forum.

    2. Based on MOTD's of the last 365 days on the site:
    Nope, that was not me.... it's been a few years now.


    Note that a few MOTD's (such as theguynextdoor) didn't disclose their ethnicity so I had to manually checked their profiles. theguynextdoor was classified as white. I hope I was right.

    I've never been all that fond of labels and don't really like to box someone in. I'd rather look at them as a human. Either we find them sexually attractive, for one reason or another.
    My profile used to be fully filled out, then I realized it's just not that crucial that you know every detail or bit of data. So,, yeah, call me white, call me mixed (American Indian and Black Irish) or what every works.

    I just checked, you are indeed in the list, here, on this page, count from bottom, the 10th: http://www.realjock.com/search?recentmods=1&rpp=50&searchpage=6

    I just assumed that list contained the last 365 MOTD's because it's named "recent mods". If so, then that was almost a year ago. I'm not a frequent user of the site so I could've made a wrong assumption.
