Bi Men on the Net

Interesting results from recent online polls completed by men.  Many gay men believe that all the men they have sex with are gay. But there is more than meets the eye about men who have sex with men than most people might think.

The Internet has become a very effective tool for bi men to communicate and to meet one another. We'll look at some recent online poll results, and use them to deconstruct and destroy the myth of the non-existent bi man.
