Data from the study indicates Black men are multidimensional and thoughtful as it relates to when it’s appropriate to first have sex when dating.

Not until marriage: 8 percent (16 percent for women) Black women are more conservative than Black men, certainly, but men are far from cavalier when it comes to first having sex in dating relationships. More than half of Black men (52 percent) surveyed want to marry their current partners, 38 percent indicate not being sure and only 11 percent say they have no interest. Only 11 percent of participants state they are not optimistic about finding a companion, but 15 percent believe they will never be married.

No hard, fast rule: 42 percent (47 percent for women) 2.
Two or three dates: 21 percent (3 percent for women) 3.
Eleven percent say they have experienced a sexual encounter with another man, and 15 percent agree/strongly agree that a man can have a homosexual encounter and not be classified as gay; 65 percent disagree/strongly disagree that a man can remain straight after one homosexual encounter.
