Young men who have sex with men tend to have good sexual function with little minority stress, according to a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study.
The findings are based on questionnaire responses from 678 cisgender men who have sex with men. Their ages ranged from 16 to 29.
While most participants reported low minority stress and good sexual function, almost 14% of the respondents had erection difficulties and 20% were "somewhat" or less satisfied with their recent sexual experiences.
