A new study finds that Americans are more accepting than ever before of same-sex canoodling. And not only do they think it's okay — they're trying it for themselves.
Nearly half — 49 percent — said "sexual relations between two adults of the same sex" was "not wrong at all" in 2014, a team of researchers from Florida Atlantic University, San Diego State University and Widener University found.
The team looked at the results of the General Social Survey, a large ongoing survey of around 30,000 U.S. adults conducted by the University of Chicago since 1972.
In 1973, just 11 percent of Americans said they thought homosexual sex was "not wrong." By 1990 that percentage had risen just slightly, to 13 percent, the team wrote in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
