Gay Men Only 2 Percent of U.S. Population, 52 Percent of HIV Cases

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control finds that gay men, who make up only two percent of the U.S. population, constitute 52 percent of Americans with HIV.

The CDC report also noted that 63 percent of those recently infected with HIV are men who have sex with other men.

"Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) represent approximately 2 percent of the United States population, yet are the risk group most affected by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)," the CDC report says. "Most gay and bisexual men acquire HIV through anal sex, which is the riskiest type of sex for getting or transmitting HIV."

One of the reasons for the higher infection rate is promiscuity, the CDC said.

"Having more sex partners compared to other men means gay and bisexual men have more opportunities to have sex with someone who can transmit HIV or another STD. Similarly, among gay men, those who have more partners are more likely to acquire HIV," the report said.

The report also found that African Americans with HIV get care for their infection at the lowest rate, followed by Hispanic men and then whites.

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Yes it does(from what I've read) - the tissue et al in that area is VERY sensitive, and can cause bleeding(among other things) very easily.

Yes, AIDS was created in a laboratory by wicked men - but aside from this, it's even more than that(as explained right here).

CDC official: Gay men’s disease rates highest since 1980s HIV/AIDS outbreak

Men who have sex with men face a syphilis infection rate at the highest it’s been since the 1980s, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) official.

“We’re concerned about our high levels of syphilis among men who have sex with men – really we’re back to the level of disease – burden of disease – in gay men that we were seeing before HIV in this country,” said Gail Bolan, director of the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, at an event lobbying for federal funding to fight sexually transmitted diseases in the United States. The comments were reported by CNS News.

Some groups bear a disproportionate burden of STDs, according to a 2014 CDC fact sheet, and “While anyone can become infected with an STD, certain groups, including young people and gay and bisexual men, are at greatest risk.”

In a section of the fact sheet on the “Troubling rise in syphilis infections among men, particularly gay and bisexual men,” the CDC wrote, “Trend data show rates of syphilis are increasing at an alarming rate (15.1 percent in 2014). While rates have increased among both men and women, men account for more than 90 percent of all primary and secondary syphilis cases. Men who have sex with men (MSM) account for 83 percent of male cases where the sex of the sex partner is known.”

According to the CDC, “Having more sex partners compared to other men means gay and bisexual men have more opportunities to have sex with someone who can transmit HIV or another STD.”

In 2013, Vancouver Coastal Health and the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control said that levels of syphilis infections in homosexual and bisexual men were the highest they’d been in more than 30 years in the Vancouver area.  In 2015, the Public Health England also released a study indicating a sharp increase in syphilis and gonorrhea among gay men.

Study: more Americans are having gay sex — or at least admitting to it

Updated by German Lopez on June 1, 2016, 1:10 p.m. ET 
http://www.vox.com/2016/6/1/11829834/gay-sex-survey-lgbtq

A new study has some fabulous news: More Americans are having gay sex — or at least admitting to it — and the country as a whole seems increasingly okay with it.

The study, published Wednesday in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, found the percent of adult men who reported having sex with at least one man increased from 4.5 percent in the early 1990s to 8.2 percent in the early 2010s. The percent of adult women who admitted to having sex with at least one woman also increased from 3.6 percent to 8.7 percent. And the percent of adults who reported having sex with both men and women went up from 3.1 percent to 7.7 percent.

The findings are based on data from the nationwide General Social Survey. The findings don't necessarily mean that more people are having gay sex; they could show that more people are admitting to it.

There's a good reason why people would be more willing to admit to the act: According to the study, 49 percent of US adults by 2014 said they see nothing wrong with "sexual relations between two adults of the same sex." That's up from 11 percent in 1973 and 13 percent by 1990.

Millennials, as is typical with LGBTQ issues, were the most accepting: 63 percent said they see nothing wrong with sexual relations between two adults of the same sex.

Beyond showing more people are enjoying their sexual lives more freely, the findings signal a huge, quick change in social and cultural acceptance of same-sex couples. And based on the age demographics, it's likely that acceptance will continue to grow in the future.

Survey finds excess health problems in lesbians, gays, bisexuals

Gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals reported more health problems than straight men and women, in a large U.S. survey.

For the first time since its launch in 1957, the National Health Interview Survey in 2013 and 2014 included a question about sexual orientation.

With nearly 69,000 participants, the survey revealed that lesbian, gay and bisexual adults "were more likely to report impaired physical and mental health, heavy alcohol consumption, and heavy cigarette use, potentially due to the stressors that (they) experience as a result of interpersonal and structural discrimination," researchers wrote online June 28 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Overall, 67,150 survey respondents were heterosexual, 525 lesbian, 624 gay and 515 bisexual. The average age was about 47.

Gilbert Gonzales of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville and colleagues found that compared to heterosexual women, lesbians were 91 percent more likely to report poor or fair health. Lesbians were 51 percent more likely, and bisexual women were more than twice as likely, to report multiple chronic conditions, compared to straight women.

Gay, lesbian and bisexual people were also more likely than heterosexuals to report heavy drinking and smoking.

While gays and lesbians reported worse psychological distress than heterosexuals, bisexual people suffered the most, the survey showed.

For example, about 17 percent of heterosexual men had at least moderate psychological distress, compared to about 26 percent of gay men and about 40 percent of bisexual men.

Similarly, about 22 percent of heterosexual women had at least moderate psychological distress, compared to about 28 percent of lesbian women and about 46 percent of bisexual women.

Gonzales told Reuters Health that the health disparities are likely due to the stress of being a minority, which is likely exacerbated among bisexual people, who may not be accepted by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.

"While there aren’t that many studies focusing on bisexual adults, previous studies have indicated they’re probably at greater risk," he said.

Other factors too, along with so-called minority stress, may account for health differences between heterosexuals and lesbian, gay and bisexual people, Gonzales said.

For example, he said, survey respondents may not have had access to marriage, which wasn't legalized at the federal level in the U.S. until 2015.

"It will be interesting to see how legal same-sex marriage will affect these health disparities," Gonzales said.

In a note published with the study, Dr. Mitchell Katz says the disparities may decrease with the growing acceptance of sexual minority populations.

"Health care professionals can help by creating environments that are inclusive and supportive of sexual minority patients," writes Katz, who is an editor of the journal.

"In caring for people who have experienced bias and discrimination, support is a very potent medicine," he writes.

"It’s important that all our federal surveys begin to collect sexual orientation status and gender identity," said Gonzales. "This kind of work would not be (possible) if the question wasn’t asked."

STD rates reach record high in United States
10/20/16
http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/20/health/std-statistics-record-high/index.html

(CNN)There were more reported cases of sexually transmitted diseases last year than ever before in the United States, according to the latest STD surveillance report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The annual report, which was released on Wednesday, showed that the rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis -- the three most commonly reported STDs in the nation -- increased between 2014 and 2015, reaching an all-time high.

Reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis rose by 19%, gonorrhea cases rose by 12.8%, and chlamydia cases rose by 5.9%, from 2014. All three STDs are curable with antibiotics, but most infections go undiagnosed and untreated, according to the CDC.

"We have reached a decisive moment for the nation," Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention, said in a written statement (PDF).

"STD rates are rising, and many of the country's systems for preventing STDs have eroded," he said. "We must mobilize, rebuild and expand services -- or the human and economic burden will continue to grow."

The report included data on chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis from state and local case reports. Federal health officials actively track such reports, which involve a variety of private and public sources.

Data on other STDs, such as human papillomavirus, herpes simplex virus and trichomoniasis, are not routinely tracked and were not included in the new report. While HIV is a STD that is actively tracked, it also was not included in this report.

Who is at most risk?
Last year, there were more than 1.5 million reported cases of chlamydia, a disease that can damage a woman's reproductive system and make it difficult for her to get pregnant if left untreated. Young people, 15 to 24 years old, accounted for nearly two-thirds of last year's chlamydia diagnoses -- and half of the gonorrhea diagnoses.

There were 395,216 reported cases of gonorrhea last year, and the STD has become progressively difficult to treat. Scientists at the CDC warned in July that the bacterium that causes gonorrhea, called Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is developing resistance to the antibiotic drugs used to treat it.

Men who have sex with men accounted for the majority of new gonorrhea cases last year, and antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea was found to possibly be higher among the group, the new report showed.

Overall, young people and gay and bisexual men face the greatest risk of getting a STD, according to the new report. It's estimated that about half of the nearly 20 million new STD cases reported annually are among 15 to 24 year olds.
