The difference between "tops" and "bottoms" with regards to their safer sex behavior may not necessarily indicate that bottoms are more open to condomless anal intercourse; it may just indicate the different capacity for decision-making. Population size and self-reported characteristics and sexual preferences of men-who-have-sex-with-men MSM in Germany based on social network data.
Background In the absence of detailed information about the population size and behaviour data of men-who-have-sex-with-men MSMthe estimation of prevalence rates of sexually transmitted infections STIs and the de of public health interventions become difficult.
The aim of the present study is to estimate the lower boundary of age-specific population sizes and retrieve self-reported information from this population. Methods We used publicly accessible data from a large online dating and social network website for MSM in Germany to retrieve data on the age and regional distribution of profiles. The profiles were also stratified by their information on the preferred position during anal intercourse, safer sex, and sexual identity.
A total ofuser profiles correspond to an average Although the information on the absolute s for different age groups is limited by the search engine, age-specific relative frequencies were found to increase from Around one third of profile owners stated to be versatile with respect to the preferred position in anal intercourse.
Conclusions Online social network or dating sites can provide some information about specific populations in the absence of other data sources. The presented are the first to report age-specific rates of MSM per 1, male inhabitants in Germany and may be useful to estimate age-specific prevalence or incidence rates as well as to inform health promotion activities and modelling studies for MSM in Germany.
