    Kinsey scale poll

    Currently a friend of mine is doing his thesis about the fluidity of sexuality, in it he uses the Kinsey scale witch is an oversimplified way to "measure" someones sexual preference.

    Although it might not be the best way to measure such thing I got curious and polled my whole class.
    Now I would like to poll you guys!

    There are different variations on the scale (some have 5 levels, others have 6). Iv'e chosen this variation, just select the option that you think best describes yourself (applies to both guys and girls)




    If you feel uncomfortable or have contrasting beliefs please refrain from flaming, let this be a civilized poll where people can contribute positively, thanks!

    I don't think this scale is complex enough to measure my sexuality. I guess I'd fall into 1-2.

    Gynephilia and androphillia are more useful determiners of sexual orientation than homosexual and heterosexual IMO.

    Also it might be more useful if there was some kind of quiz that took your responses to certain questions or asked you to rank attractiveness and then assigned you a score rather than having people select themselves, because they'll tend to be biased.

    Yeah, this is a really simplified scale that doesn't consider all of the variants of human sexual preference
    And the quiz idea sounds great! The poll however is to see how people look at themselves

    So, someone who is bisexual but tend to favor men should vote 2?

    If you're female, then yup (If male, then it's 4)

    I don't really know how to rate myself. I don't really care about sex, but am not disgusted by it or anything. I'm sexually attracted to women. I've never tested it, but I could see myself having sex with another guy under unextraordinary circumstances.

  8. #8
    Option 0 or X

    I want women, but no woman would want me...

  9. #9
    7. Two chicks at the same time, man.

  10. #10
    Somewhere between a 2 and a 3, probably. But i'm not interested/attracted to real people. So I have no idea if that scale would still apply.

    I identify as a 3 despite very little actual sexual experience with the same sex. But I had a fairly conservative upbringing so that taught me to be fearful of expressing attractions to other men.

    One of my roommates says she thinks I'm a 4 because stereotypes.

    While I would only have a sexual relation with another woman, I do find myself able to find men visually attractive.

    0 to 1. I only ever had one sexual partner (my wife) and am mostly attracted to women (which means I mostly watch straight porn).
    But under the right circumstances I agree that a sexual encounter with a man would not be impossible.

    It neglects the fact that bisexuals can change their mind every day.

    The scale should go 0-15 with the number representing how many ounces of spirits it would require for you to willfully engage with the same sex. Anything over 15 being an R for rape.
