Part of a physician’s duty is to assess behaviors for their impact on health and wellbeing. When something is beneficial, such as exercise, good nutrition, or adequate sleep, they should recommend it. Likewise, when something is harmful, such as smoking, overeating, alcohol or drug abuse, and homosexual sex, they should discourage it.
The consequences of homosexual activity are distinct from the consequences of heterosexual activity. People engaged in homosexual activity increase the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), physical injuries, mental disorders, and a shortened life span.
One major difference between homosexual and heterosexual relationships is promiscuity. A 1978 study of homosexual men found that 75 percent of self-identified, white, homosexual men admitted to having sex with more than 100 different males in their lifetime: 15 percent claimed 100-249 sex partners; 17 percent claimed 250- 499; 15 percent claimed 500-999; and 28 percent claimed more than 1,000 lifetime male sex partners.
A more recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported an upswing in promiscuity among young homosexual men in San Francisco. From 1994 to 1997, the percentage of homosexual men reporting multiple partners and unprotected anal sex rose from 23.6 percent to 33.3 percent, with the largest increase among men under 25.
A 2001 study also found that males associated with the gay community were nearly four times as likely to have had more than 50 sex partners in six months as those who were not associated with the homosexual community. In other words, the homosexual community creates more pressure to be promiscuous and to be so with a cohort of other more promiscuous partners.
Excessive sexual promiscuity is a recipe for transmitting disease and generating an epidemic. The HIV/AIDS epidemic has remained a predominantly homosexual disease in the U.S. primarily because of the greater degree of promiscuity among homosexuals.
A study based upon statistics from 1986 through 1990 estimated that 20-year-old homosexual males had a 50 percent chance of becoming HIV positive by age 55. As of June 2001, nearly 64 percent of men with AIDS were men who have had sex with men.
Syphilis is also more common among homosexual men. The San Francisco Public Health Department reported that syphilis among the city’s homosexual and bisexual males was at epidemic levels. According to the San Francisco Chronicle:
“Experts believe syphilis is on the rise among gay and bisexual men because they are engaging in unprotected sex with multiple partners, many of whom they met in anonymous situations such as sex clubs, adult bookstores, meetings through the Internet and in bathhouses. The new data will show that in the 93 cases involving gay and bisexual men this year, the group reported having 1,225 sexual partners.”
A Baltimore study reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that homosexual males contracted syphilis at three to four times the rate of heterosexuals.
Promiscuity among lesbians, although less extreme, is higher than among heterosexual women. Lesbian women were 4.5 times more likely to have had more than 50 lifetime male partners than heterosexual women and 75-90 percent of women who have sex with women have also had sex with men.
Another major difference between homosexual and heterosexual relationships is physical health. The medical and social science evidence indicate that homosexual behavior is uniformly unhealthy.
Men having sex with other men leads to greater health risks than men having sex with women because of the nature of sex among men. Anal intercourse is essential sex for many homosexual men, and although it may be practiced by heterosexuals at times, homosexual men engage in it to a far greater extent.
Also, mouth-anal contact, a common practice among homosexual men, is the reason for the high incidence of diseases caused by bowel pathogens in male homosexuals.
Human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate anal intercourse. The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penis penetration. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm.
In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic.
