A new survey conducted by GT (Gay Times) magazine has found that gay and bi men are more likely to engage in bareback sex after using drugs or while drunk.

“The GT drug survey came about because we were bemused at the amount of news stories in the mainstream media about gay and bisexual men and drugs,” GT editor Darren Scott said. “It seemed, to me at least, that this had become an accepted misconception of gay lifestyle with little fact to back it up.”

The survey asked 1,000 gay and bi male readers about their relationships with sex, drugs, and alcohol. It found that three-quarters of respondents use drugs recreationally, and that those who do were far more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors.

Here are the survey’s other findings:

  • Two thirds of respondents said they had sex while under the influence of recreational drugs, and 60 percent said they were more likely to have sex with a stranger while on drugs.
  • 55 percent said they were more likely to have group sex while on drugs, while 10 percent of them said they did not know their HIV status.
  • 30 percent admitted that taking drugs had led them to have bareback sex, and 54 percent confessed to having bareback sex while drunk.
  • More than half of respondents admitted to consuming cannabis, one third to taking cocaine, MDMA/ecstasy, and 11 percent to consuming crystal meth.
  • One in 20 admitted to injecting drugs or “slamming.”

“We set out to ask our readers to be as frank as possible about their lifestyle choices so that, at last, there would be some facts to either backup or debunk the many notions that are frequently alluded to,” Scott said. “What we found was fascinating, and sometimes upsetting, but if just one person now takes extra care when mixing sex with addictive substances in future, then we know we’ve done something right.”
