Those who practice homosexuality are at greater risk of STDs, as well as bacterial infections, than the average heterosexual.
it has nothing to do with the practice of homosexuality. it has to do with promiscuity. generally, in epidemiological studies regarding STD rates, homosexuals do admit to having more partners, but studies are always skewed when it comes to complete information. homosexuals tend to be more honest when patient histories are assembled. Also, much of this depends upon what disease we are dealing with. African-Americans often have higher rates than do gays or whites when is comes to certain STD's. and globally of course, HIV is more prevalant amongst the heterosexual population.
