French young people experience with homosexuality January 2019

Have you ever had a homosexual relationship?

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
French young people experience with homosexuality January 2019 In a survey from January 2019 conducted in France, 12 percent of responding young females and eight percent of responding young males stated that they had already a homosexual relationship and enjoyed it. It may be stated that younger generations are more open about sexuality and gender, and generally 86 percent of French citizens think homosexuality is a way of life that should be accepted by society.
Younger women and sexual practices

According to France Televisions, 30 percent of young French women aged between 18 and 34 years stated that they never had a homosexual relationship but will be open to it if the opportunity arose. In comparison, only 11 percent of responding men declared the same. There were also 72 percent to mentioning that they do not wish to have a gay relationship, compared to 56 percent of women surveyed. This open-mindedness could be linked with the evolution of sexual practices among younger generations. Thus, since 1990 the proportion of women aged 20 to 24 years having already practiced oral sex increased in France. Similarly, the share of women who already practiced sodomy was also more important since 1992. The evolution of society, as well as internet, appears to have allowed women to dare to experiment more.

Being gay in France

In 2011, 31 percent of French men aged 18 to 34 years were in a relationship with a same-sex person, compared to 34 percent of women the same age. Gay marriage is legal in France since 2013 and the number of same-sex weddings reached a record number of 10,552 unions in 2014. However, LGBT people in the country still face difficulties sometimes. In 2015, more than 60 percent of French aged 18 to 24 years already came across homophobic statements online.
