"Kevin" is a man in his mid-fifties, married, with two children, one of whom is handicapped.
His wife suspected Kevin's interest in men, and she began to search for clues of his deception.
One young Chinese student said that as the oldest son, his culture expected him to marry and care for his parents. He asked me if he should marry even though he could not function sexually with a woman.
Some men who have sex with men (MSM) think they are too straight to be gay, but others see them as too gay to be straight. According to the Centers for Disease Control, about 7% of men have sex with men, but gay men are estimated at about 4% of the population.
MSM may say they are engaged in homosexual behavior but resist assuming a gay identity because they don't identify with the stereotype.
They also don't want to sacrifice the privileges attached to being heterosexual. One Muslim from the Middle East said, "This isn't about being gay; it's only about pleasure." Justin Spring in wrote, "If one does not want to suppress his nature and yet is afraid of expressing it, what is he to do?
These figures suggest that about 3% of MSM do not identify themselves as gay.
