This study interviewed 46 non-gay identified, non-disclosing MSMW to identify the venues where they meet male sexual partners and the strategies they use to reduce the likelihood of discovery when at such venues.
I suspect it’s much more underreported.” She suggests that society has not been willing to learn more about female paedophilia (where adults are sexually attracted to children) and female child sex abuse (where they either act on those impulses and sexually abuse children, or do it for different reasons).
“We find it abhorrent because it challenges our ideas of women and motherhood,” she explains.
I'm sure most people have a preference, that doesn't mean they're always going to get that preference.
But I'm still looking for a great guy who will take me for who I am, not what I am.
And someone who won't reject me just because I'm a single mother of two daughters.
And I'd love to have a couple more kids soon enough, but only if, I find the right one for me and my daughters. I also can sing, cook, play the flute, and other things as well.
Knowing the size of the economy is the critical first step for enabling law enforcement, the judicial system, and policymakers to make informed choices about how to fight the harm that happens within these black markets.Most (74%) reported meeting a male partner in a sexual venue (e.g., bar/club, park) in the past year.Strategies to reduce the risk of discovery while seeking male partners included: 1) avoiding certain venues; 2) attending venues away from home; 3) meeting partners on the Internet, 4) preferring venues that have potential non-sexual uses, 5) having sex at the partner’s place, and 6) limiting their on-site sexual activities.These findings provide insight into the coping strategies these men use to manage the conflicting needs to conceal their behavior and meet sexual partners.Considerable recent media attention has been paid to the phenomenon of “men on the down low” – that is, non-gay identifying men who have sex with men and women (MSMW), but do not disclose their same-sex behavior to their wives, girlfriends or others (Denizet-Lewis, 2003; King, 2004; Vargas, 2003).
