    In your opinion, are there more gay men or more lezbian women.

    Ie, is it more likely for a guy to be gay or for a women to be lezbian?

    I was just wondering, so thanks for any responses.

    I think you should conduct a survey in a gay bar.

    Getting demohraphics on sexual orientation is a difficult job. First of all, if you only sample people from a certain city or country, it's only going to represent that city or country. Second of all, you can never tell if people change their minds or lie. Third of all, the results would not show the numbers of the closeted gays and lesbians.

    Therefore it would be very difficult to actually have a percentage or likelihood factor for people to be gay or lesbian. I do however strongly encourage anyone who is interested in conducting such study/survery/research.

    My gut instinct says that the probability is similar, but that's just a close to worthless thought.

    Apparently something like 1 in 10 men are gay, but only like 1 in 50 women are lesbian...
