Well, wait a minute...

Sexual orientation is very hard to pin down in surveys. Depends on how you define "homosexual," plus many people still lie about their orientation.   But a survey from 2011 suggests that 3.5% of Americans self-identify as LGTB, that's about 9 million people, and substantially more report homosexual behavior (8.2%) and same-sex attraction (11%).

1 in 10, isn't it? {nm}   numbersix_99 on Jun 26, 13:27

Around one in 100 to one in 200. That 10% is from Kinsey and totally discredited. So at most 3.5 million men. who might or might not be    forlorne on Jun 26, 13:37

Maybe meant 1-in-10 movie goers. ;-) {nm}   elchan on Jun 26, 13:49

fwiw, the hard-to-please Jeffrey Wells loved it.   Antibody on Jun 26, 12:27

Is there something we should know about J. Wells? Hmmmm... {nm}   PVL Admin on Jun 26, 15:34

Two other good performing movies Berlesque($39M) and Stripetease($33M) had major star power behind them.   elchan on Jun 26, 13:48

That's apples and oranges.. Burlesque was a PG13 musical.. Striptease is better..but it made 12.3 on its OW {nm}   dioneta on Jun 26, 14:27

According to this source Striptease opened @ $33M. They're probably wrong, as it does seem high.   elchan on Jun 26, 14:37

33M was the total domestic. I would also say that women will see movies about naked women more than men will see movies about naked men {nm}   dioneta on Jun 26, 15:02

Well, said. Also, I question the how many gay men, are going to out themselves, by insisting on going to see this movie for the "plot". {nm}   elchan on Jun 26, 15:06

I don't see it as an "outing" issue. Just a numbers issue. Its an R-rated film about male strippers. The ceiling seems limited {nm}   dioneta on Jun 26, 15:09

Uh-oh. Don't say R-rated movies with offbeat subject matter have limited audiences. I hinted at that yesterday and they tore me a new one.   Dave3626 on Jun 26, 16:54

It's probably proportional to the men that get Playboy for the "articles". {nm}   PVL Admin on Jun 26, 15:47

It has articles? {nm}   Dave3626 on Jun 26, 16:56
