Defending the Raven

Bisexual. Married. Man. Open. Read On.

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid

Got this from Drew. My reults below. Not a surprise AT all.

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid

I scored an average of 3.05

0 1 2 3 4 5 6
Heterosexual Bisexual Homosexual

Meaning

This result can also be related to the Kinsey Scale:

0 = exclusively heterosexual
1 = predominantly heterosexual, 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, incidentally heterosexual
6 = exclusively homosexual

Summary

The idea of this excercise is to understand exactly how dynamic a person’s sexual orientation can be, as well as how fluid it can be over a person’s lifespan. While a person’s number of actual homo/heterosexual encounters may be easy to categorize, their actual orientation may be completely different. Simple labels like “homosexual”, “heterosexual”, and “bisexual” need not be the only three options available to us.

  2. I scored a 1.14. I’m not surprised at all, either. But I’m wondering if that .14 is because I hang out here all the time….?

  3. No, Cymber, it’s because of your latent obsession with Salma Hayek.
