    Default The Kinsey Scale and Human Sexuality

    If i get banned then hell I get banned. If this gets l/d'ed then it gets l/d'ed. ive wanted a thread like this to discuss peoples sexuality ever since I started my studies on Human Sexuality but Ive staved off for too long... so screw it - I want to know what everyone thinks about what and im gonna start with the Kinsey Scale. For those of you who don't know what it is its how pioneer sexologist Alfred Kinsey described human sexual orientation way back when everyone swore you were either gay or straight. It displayed a way that people could be described as may different things and fall in many categories. Kinsey scaled it from 0 - 6 with zero being perfectly heterosexual, 3 being perfectly bisexual (or pansexual), and 6 being perfectly homosexual. Not surprisingly ~80% of his thousands of test subjects fell between 1 and 5.


    anyway i found this halfway decent test (dont mind the text too much the number and percent are what "matters") so if youre curious about yourself or whatever just take it. Its short.

    as for me ... not surprisingly... it was right about on the money.

    Congratulations! You scored 38%!
    Predominantly heterosexual, but more the incidentally homosexual. You're in the grey area. You are probably one of those straight people who's very comfortable with your sexuality, hell you may even play with the gay in the bedroom. You're probably the boyfriend that will go with your girlfriend to the gay club, and you probably dont care when an obviously gay person checks you out or even hits on you. Yay for you, gay people love straight people like you! Another option, you might also be the bi-curious or confused type, but only YOU know the truth. Last option (least in MY head) is you're a bisexual person, who tends to favor the opposite sex over the same sex.

    Hopefully this topic can evolve into a respectful and intelligent intellectual discussion about a very large portion of our lives.

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I dunno... some of our more popular members here are rather... prudish

    Exclusively Heterosexual. You arent grey at all. Based on your answers, you have no interest in the opposite sex at all, and very few people HONESTLY fit into this category. Perhaps you dont, but according to my test, you do. If your goal is to be straight, congratulations you win! However, people in this category might also be our closet cases in denial... if you happen to be one of those? Calm down, it's ok to be gay, there's nothing WRONG with you, and perhaps you might want to look into meeting and talking with people who can help. The coming out process can be tough.

    Convinced, now?

    I got a 14%, same text.

    ...I get the feeling this test is just as skewed as the one that idiot(I forgot who) made a while back about tolerance. From the same site. Coincidence?
