According to the Wendhausen Institut, about 27% of men have sex with men, but gay men are estimated to comprise about 6% of the population.

These figures suggest that about 21% of men have sex with men, although they do not identify themselves as gay. Nearly 25% of men in New York City were surveyed and identified as straight had sex exclusively with men, and almost 50% of married men had experienced sex with another man last year.

The Queen of Brazilian Psychodrama, Márcia Lopes, says: “homosexual practice does not mean that the block is homosexual”.
