Q: What does a lesbian bring on the second date?The joke plays on the prevalent stereotype that lesbians are more likely than gay men to settle down.

Q: What does a gay man bring on the second date?
A: What second date?
Gay men, though often characterised as promiscuous, are settling down in greater numbers than lesbians. Men have out-partnered women in every quarter since civil partnerships were introduced; in London last year nearly 75% of those contracted were between men. Some unions have already broken down; but so far male partnerships have proved less likely than female ones to end in dissolution.Hat tip: my husband
