I'm hetero-flexible. You figure it out.

I'd like to see people answer using the Kinsey Scale. I would be a 2 on that thing.

Alfred Kinsey was a sexologist who studied various aspects of human sexuality. He developed this scale, The Kinsey Scale, as a way of more accurately categorizing human sexual orientation. Here it is:

The problem I have with the Kinsey Scale is that it doesn't have a second axis for the range of asexual to hypersexual.

I don't see how hypersexuality relates to actual sexual orientation. If anything, the increased sexual drive could make someone have sex with an otherwise undesired sex, but that is just conditional. And I've never believed that a healthy human being could be truly asexual.

Not interested in sex and romance right now. Maybe in a few years. So as I stand now asexual is probably the best descriptor for me?

I find both men and women attractive, though, and I wouldn't be opposed to dating a man or a woman someday. I'd say more open-minded/bicurious than bisexual though, because I really don't want to say that I'm bi and then realize I'm too chicken to date women. I haven't dated anyone ever so I'm not 100% sure about my actual preferences.

tl;dr identity crisis
Pretty much all this. Being in High School still, there's all sorts of drama, and I don't want to have any distractions, although honestly, to me, it doesn't matter who I like, and it's not all the physical things in a relationship that count, either.

It probably doesn't; it's just something to use as a counterpoint to asexuality; I should have said 'fully sexual', really.
What I mean for the asexuality axis is having something like 'exclusively asexual', 'incidentally sexual', 'more than incidentally sexual', et al. Most of it won't apply to most people, admittedly.

I'm pansexual. If I'm emotionally or physically invested, then I really don't care about the person's gender identity.

I'm gay! I tried to convince myself I was straight/bi in the past for an easier life, but I've always been gay. :p

I'd probably be somewhere right around a 3 or 4, but with that being said, I'm pansexual. While I have been closer to more guys than girls, I don't really attribute that as a sign to my sexuality--they were just merely the ones that I happened to like. I can say that I don't really like girls all that much, although it is less of physical attraction thing than it is that I find most girls annoying. I don't know what it is really, and I'm probably making a big generalization about A LOT of people that I don't know... but I haven't really met any prominent examples or had any great experience to prove me otherwise. There are the exceptions, of course, as there always is, but they were far and few--not enough to shake that feeling. I'm pansexual though, so gender does not really equate into my sexuality like I already said--anybody can have the potential to be attractive to me and catch my eye. Looks are definitely a bonus, but they are honestly just a door opener... it is the personality that really truly matters. Someone could be the most physically beautiful person in the world, but if their a total ***** or something like that, then I wouldn't want them around... Anyway, the point of that was to say that attraction is based on a lot more than physical attributes.

Regarding all this though, I am not that highly sexual of a person. I have my times, but sex is not wholly important to me. I definitely view it as something that is somewhat special, because I would actually prefer there to be some strong feelings with the person, regardless of their gender. I used to think I was asexual because of this, but then I realized that I'm honestly quite the opposite, which is fine by me!

@Alex: Well that's good! Life's a whole lost easier when you're honest with yourself!(:

I am asexual I don't bother to even think about sex. Yes I have had it and did not like it at all, it was soooo gross. IDK my views might change but as of now sex is just not something I am into or for that matter.

I've always been into women and I don't see that changing anytime soon

I'd add more detail about my preference for teh ladies now but my girlfriend would kill me if I did.

On a more serious note I still have a healthy sex drive but emotionally I feel nothing for a person other than my blood brother and the love of my life nowadays.

Straight. I can't ever see myself being in a relationship or having sex with another woman. I do say compliments like "Wow, you're pretty" occasionally if I see a good looking one, but there isn't any attraction. I'm more attracted to men, physically and emotionally. And I honestly don't think that's going to change anytime soon.

I got a 0, but I'm thinking that the quiz was highly simplistic.

Looks like I'm a 0 on the Kinsey scale. Interesting... I agree that it needs to be like a graph with a second axis though.

Straight.

I can admit if a guy Is good looking but I only see the male physique attractive in an art sense or from a physical fitness perspective.

Having said that, I've never slept with a guy, so I might even like it. I doubt its something ill ever bother trying, mind.

:(

I wish I could be this free. Unfortunately I'm far too attracted to masculinity, haha. I'm definitely a 6 on the scale, or maybe like.. 5.9, because I accidentally made out with a girl while drunk. Does that count?

I'm surprised by the amount of people who have replied to this thread stating that they're straight, lol. This is the first sexual orientation thread that I've seen that isn't 90% gay people!!!!!!!
