Summary of "Sexual Satisfaction, Solitary and Dyadic Sexual Desire in Men According to Sexual Orientation."

Research on male sexual desire and satisfaction, according to sexual orientation remains insufficient. An online-survey was fulfilled by 415 men (142 gay; 273 heterosexual), and participants completed the SDI-2 and the GMSEX. Main findings suggested that gay men scored significantly higher on both solitary sexual desire and attractive person-related dyadic sexual desire subscales, but not on partner-related dyadic sexual desire subscale, compared to heterosexual men. Despite sexual orientation, partner-related dyadic sexual desire positively predicts sexual satisfaction, whereas solitary and attractive person-related dyadic sexual desire negatively predicts sexual satisfaction in men. Overall, gay men appear to experience higher levels of both attractive person-related dyadic and solitary sexual desire. Also, experiencing sexual desire towards a partner predicts positively, whereas experiencing desire to engage in sexual behavior with oneself and towards an attractive person predict negatively sexual satisfaction in men.
