This article discusses the demographics of inceldom.


Although involuntary celibates are often stereotyped as white, polls and surveys suggest otherwise. This poll from braincels shows that whites constitute only 28% of that forums population, with the largest racial demographic being currycel. The largest poll by showed that only 50% of its members were white[1], which is quite small for a Western web forum. Social Anxiety Support by comparison is about 99% white.

According to a peer-reviewed study, the stereotype that is mostly white is incorrect. The paper stated, "It is impossible to say whether the majority of users are white men, but our data implies that this may be less true than expected". "However, there is one major and important difference to other [...] communities: The community is more heterogeneous than other [...] communities, because users are not united by a common goal, but by a feature that its individuals share, i.e., not being able to engage in social and/or sexual contacts". "There is no definite evidence that users are predominantly white, contrary to what is often reported about incels"[2]

Growth in Numbers[edit]

Professor Simon DeDeo estimated there were 700,000 incels in the U.S for men over 25 years old,[3] while for those over 18, the number is 1.3 million.[4] Among American vicenarians, women were 10% more sexually active than men.[5]

Brian Gilmartin in the 1980s estimated that 1.5% of all American men are incelibate, estimating them at 4.7 million people. [6]

A 2012 report by The Centers for Disease Control claimed that within the past year roughly six per cent of men ages 25 to 44 have not had any sexual partners. The Washington Post correlated this figure within inceldom; thus making roughly 6% of that age group virginal incelibates (per Washington Post).[7]

Inceldom affects twice as many males as females in Germany, at 10 percent and 5 percent respectively according to Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen.[8] For further statistics on inceldom in Germany, check out Absolute Beginners#Demographics.

This graph from Lyman Stone of the Institute for Family Studies that shows that male 12-month celibacy between the ages of 22-35 grew to around 14% of young men as of 2016. [9]


The share of men under 30 who aren't having sex has nearly tripled to 28% in 2018 in the past decade according to the Washington Post using data from the General Social Survey.[10]



Statistics polling those between the ages of 22 to 35 show that inceldom is something that primarily affects men. Inceldom rates have been growing for both singletons and married men while it has remained stable for women. According to data by General Social Survey (GSS), a greater share of men are sexless, both among wedders and nonwedders.[11]

The strangest anomaly within this data is that married women have more sex than married men. Which begs the question, are married women cheating more, or are married men becoming willful cucks?


The gender that is most affected by inceldom can depend on location time and specific circumstances. For example, some reports claim that during the Paraguay War, 90% of the male population was killed. Another report claimed that out of a population of 221,000 in 1871, only about 28,000 were male. In laymen's terms, the turn of the 1870s decade was one where 9 in 10 humans in Paraguay were female and only 1 in 10 was male. Assuming a heterosexual model, this created a situation in the late 1860s Paraguay wherein femcels probably outnumbered mancels due to a massively lopsided sex-ratio.[12]
