Almost Half Of Heterosexuals Under 45 Have Anal Sex Says CDC Report

The U.S. Government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that about 40% of heterosexual Americans aged 15 to 44 have or have had anal sex with a member of the opposite sex.

iO9 breaks it down:

According to the National Survey of Family Growth, which surveyed thousands of people between the ages of 15 and 44 in 2006-2008, anal sex is really popular with heterosexuals. 44 percent of straight men report having anal sex at least once in their lives, and 36 percent of straight women do too. Though more straight men than women were enjoying anal sex, women were enjoying gay sex more. Twice as many women (12%) reported having homosexual sex at least once in their lifetimes compared with men (5.8%).

Given that the study was done from 2006-2008, it’s not unlikely to posit that the rates may actually now be slightly higher.

Wonder what Rick Santorum would say?

It sure puts a strain on the definition of homosexuality doesn't it?
If you practice fallacio have anal sex or preform cunnilingus are you gay…
Or are you gay only if those acts are preformed with someone of the same sex.
And if so… how does this constitute immoral behavior?

If heterosexuals have anal sex more than homosexuals, shouldn't they have the highest HIV total numbers?

For example, how can the tiny GLBT community with a 1% to 3% population demographic consistently have BOTH:
(a) the highest HIV rates and
(b) far and away highest total number of HIV infections in America
since AIDS was discovered 30 years ago? Shouldn't all the safe sex and condom talk for the last 30 years have made a difference in the GLBT HIV infection rate by now?

Furthermore, maybe heterosexuals in America are just not having anal sex anywhere near what the GLBT community is having and the GLBT
just like to say, "straights are doing it to", i.e. they like blame someone else. And what straights are really going to take sex surveys anyway? The CDC acknowledges that these number can be wildly inaccurate.

But if a Gay person, KNOWINGLY infects other Gays, wouldn't that be a Gay-On-Gay crime? And wouldn't that be a FELONY? Perhaps 1st or 2nd Degree Murder if they die of AIDS? And considering gays have the highest HIV infection rates, wouldn't that make all these Hate Crimes against GLBT almost insignificant when compared to the number of Gay-On-Gay crimes of knowingly infecting their partners?
