New article published on bisexual men in Germany

Todd Sekuler, Michael Bochow et al. have published an article on bisexual men from Germany, based on the more than 54,000 EMIS respondents residing in Germany. They assessed HIV testing rates, condom use and risk contact among the following groups of respondents: bisexually active single men, bisexually active men with a regular female partner, bisexually active men with a regular male partner and exclusively homosexually active men. Descriptive statistics were used to explore the sample’s socio-demographic characteristics and to identify relevant inter-group differences in sexual attraction, identity, awareness among contacts of attraction to men, number of sex partners, history of anal intercourse, recruitment of partners online, history of HIV testing and drug use. Bisexually active groups reported relatively few risk contacts, strengthening the argument that there is little support for the existence of a substantial ‘bisexual bridge’ in Germany.
