Some turn to videos in absence of school lessons.

LONDON — A survey conducted by a gay men’s health non-profit through a magazine found that nearly half of gay and bi men learn about sex through porn leading to concerns from activists that doing so results in risky sexual practices, Pink News reports.

GMFA, a London-based gay men’s health charity, surveyed 1,023 via FS Magazine and found that 82 percent said they got no education about gay sex in school. About 41 percent reported learning about anal sex through porn and 34 percent reported learning about oral sex through porn. About 13 percent of respondents said they had unprotected sex after watching bareback porn while 56 percent said they found bareback porn more “appealing,” Pink News reports.

“It’s an indictment of the lack of inclusivity in our sex education that so many gay men feel they got little or nothing of value to them from school,” Matthew Hodson of GMFA said in a statement to Pink News. “Considering the high levels of health inequalities that gay and bisexual men and women suffer, ensuring that all pupils receive honest, inclusive sex and relationship education should be a priority.”
