Spinoff: Sexual Orientation Scale

I agree with others in the original Sexual Orientation thread that there is more to it than just "homosexual", "heterosexual", or "bisexual". I think something like the Kinsey Scale (www.kinseyinstitute.org) explains things better. So, where do you lie on the scale?

0- Exclusively heterosexual with no homosexual
1- Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual
2- Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual
3- Equally heterosexual and homosexual
4- Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual
5- Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual
6- Exclusively homosexual

I used to say 3 but the more I think about this (and I do pretty regularly), I believe I am a 2.

If a news story breaks and no one on the Internet comments, did it really happen?
In practice it's not a question worth answering but with this scale and the way I think I can actually vote.

Personally, I believe that the only people my sexual orientation is relevant to is people I want to have sexual relations with, or want to have sexual relations with me.

However, I think getting topics like this out into the open is very relevant. For example, in college I remember a poll that showed that students though other students drank a lot more than they actually did, and then they were drinking more because they thought it's what everyone else was doing. I think seeing the truth about what other people think and do can be enlightening into our own thoughts and behaviors.

I have and will continue to "think" about sex with a multitude of people in general. Fairly confident that if my commitment wasn't so strong or our collaborative fantasies or experiences changed that I would find endeavors among both sexes. As long as they were in part with my committed partner.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

It always baffles me when people mention thier commitments to their significant others in threads like this. I don't commitment really has anything to do with your sexual orientation. That would be like me saying I'm asexual just because I'm single right now. I'm still a #1, even though I'm not actively engaged in either a predominantly heterosexual, or only incidentally homosexual, relationship at the moment! Just like you (general you) can be in a committed relationship to your husband/wife and still consider yourself a #1 or #2 or whatever.

I guess I just don't see sexual orientation having anything to do with activiely trying to pursue a sexual relationship with that sex.

I see what you mean Who Me - I think CMD and I were kind of bringing in stuff from the other thread, where people were discussing having same-sex experiences while they were married, and whether or not it was considered cheating. CMD - I don't mean to speak for you so please correct me if I'm wrong

WhoMe, essentially the attraction is more of a asthetic thing and not sexual is why I picked #1. I mentioned my husband because that is what is most important to me, the commitment, not the gender. Make sense?
