Stranger's Sex Survey 2023: Genders, Politics, and Perversions Covered in This Year's Dirtiest Answers

Stratum’s 2023 Sex Survey:

Taken by 4,600 Stranger readers, this year’s survey’s 65 questions helped us shed some light on the sexually charged lives of Seattleites. Among the things we learned, respondents were most likely to be between 26 and 45 years old, identify as gay or bisexual, and be gender nonconforming (read: not a cis man or woman). Most people who took the survey identified as bisexual (20%), and of those who didn’t identify as straight, more identified as queer (33% of lesbians, 28% of nonbinary people, and 11% of cis men) than as gay (18% of bisexuals, 8% of gay men, and 5% of lesbians).

This year’s respondents were also more likely to identify as transgender or nonbinary than last year, and more likely to identify as bisexual than in 2022. We saw a decline in the number of people who identified as lesbian, and an increase in the number of people who identified as pansexual, polysexual, or omnisexual. We also learned that bisexuals are more likely to be women (59%) than men (41%).

In terms of sexual orientation, the results were mixed. While over 90% of gay men identified as exclusively gay, only 66% of lesbians identified as exclusively lesbian. Among queer respondents, 47% identified as exclusively queer, while 53% identified as queerly bisexual.

In addition to identifying as bisexual, over 20% of respondents identified as monogamish, while 14% identified as non-monogamous, 3% as polyamorous, and 8% as open to all relationship types. A majority of respondents, 44%, were looking for a committed relationship.

In terms of relationship status, 70% of respondents were married or in a relationship, while 30% were single and looking. Among those who were single and looking, more were looking for a monogamous relationship (44%) than a non-monogamous one (8%) or an open relationship (3%).

Prospective observational study of peripheral intravenous cannula utilisation and frequency of intravenous fluid delivery in the emergency department: convenience or necessity?
