Plos One medical journal — gay and bisexual men over 70 were more likely than their straight peers of the same age to have had more than one sexual partner recently.Those men were likely to continue having sex with multiple partners, while straight men and women became less sexually active.Women who have sex with women, and other relationship types, were discounted due to small sample sizes.The study, conducted by researchers at the University of East Anglia, King’s College London, and University College London surveyed more than 5,000 adults during the 2022 mpox outbreak, looking at how sexual activity changes with age, in order to develop scientific models for sexually transmitted infections, reports Sky News.
