The latest Wonder Wall survey asked gay men a whole new set of questions, many of which were based on user submissions. This survey was unique in that it collected results over a 12 month period, allowing for a larger number of votes. Take a peek into the minds of the men all around you and see if you feel the same.
It appears that the most telling quality about a man's sexuality for men aged under 35 is his mannerisms at 24%, followed closely by his friends. The range of possible answers included clothes, voice, mannerisms, grooming, hobbies, and friends, with the lowest response being clothes at 13%. However, the mix of answers only demonstrates just how diverse one's expression of their sexuality can be.
There is clearly a degree of stress surrounding the quality of one's penis when it comes to relationships between men, with around 50% of all 306 voters across both age groups expressing this concern. This figure may align with similar research looking at both men and women when it comes to apprehensions about their body, especially with regard to sex.
Around 50% of gay men believe that sexual attraction to certain races is societally taught, with the remaining believing that it is mostly biological in nature. Racism in the gay community and broader community is well documented but only deeply understood by those who experience it. This question should only invoke further discussion rather than stand as fact.
