  • Homosexuality and Lesbianism are currently at their Peak in America
 

It speaks volumes about the Free World when we learn that homosexuality and lesbianism are currently at their peak in America. It is all about consent and what sort of engine the individual has in matters of sex.

An extensive study was arranged and it showed a trend that was on the upswing in the United States. Covering the generations from 1973 to 2014, it showed that same-sex carnal enjoyment has more than doubled in the Land of the Free. Also homosexual and lesbian relations have virtually grown to four times their previous rates in society. 

The very culture has transformed from the inside out in the last 40 odd years. It is not just about gay, lesbian and bisexual tolerance. It is about the right to enjoy sex with a person be it a he or a she or a s/he.

There is a greater acceptance of alternative lifestyles and a wide range of sexual practices too. Not only has the paradigm of cultural folkways changed towards greater freedom but people now consider it their birthright to express their real sexuality and come out of the closet. 

The study was published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.

About 33,728 people were taken into consideration. The General Social Survey was looked into by the psychologists to get a fair view of the changing situation over the decades.

Questionnaires were handed out to the participants. Males who have sex with another male have increased from 4.5% to 8.2%. Females who have sex with another female have increased from 3.6% to 8.7%.

Bisexuality (which is the natural condition of human nature) increased from 3.1% to 7.7%. In the Millennial Generation that grew up taking selfies and surfing the Internet, 7.5% of men had a homosexual experience while 12.2% of women had a lesbian relationship sometime in their lives. The changes were at their peak among Caucasians and in the Southern States and the Midwest.  

Lesbianism was greatest for women who were relatively young. It seemed to be a “graduation thing”. The same trend was not noticeable for gay men though. Between 1973 and 1990, the tolerance levels for gays and lesbians did not show any improvement.

Then the rates of laxity and permissiveness just skyrocketed. By the time 2014 rolled in, the tolerance levels were nearly 49%. Among the youth, it was even greater and stood at 63%.

Even bisexual behavior, which is like having your cake and eating it too, is common in society. In this the Millennials are different from their predecessors, the Generation X flock. Time, the magician, seems to have changed everything, even our most intimate activities.
