The Kinsey Scale

The Kinsey Scale is a tool to help apprehend the continuum of sexuality beyond the strict categories of hetero or gay attraction. The scale was originally developed through Dr. Alfred Kinsey and used by researchers to evaluate a patient based on their sexual and romantic history. After the evaluation, the researchers assign each affected person more than a few from zero-6, with 0 being exclusively heterosexual and 6 being homosexual. For instance, if you are more often than not heterosexual, but occasional have encounters with someone of the same gender, you would be a 1-2 on the Kinsey Scale. More recently the scale has advanced, allowing people to self-determine and sexuality is this type of non-public identification. Another criticism of the Kinsey Scale is that viewing bisexuality strictly on a scale from heterosexual to gay, does now not renowned bisexuality as a class in it is very own right.

sexuality is a little tricky to understand because there’s really no exact science that pinpoints how or what someone should feel. Read more about this with MYSC to be informed. and that has everything to do with the fact that individual’s sexuality preferences vary heavily from one person to another.

but if you're looking for a general definition of what it means to be bisexual, feeling romantic or sexual attraction to more than one gender could be a sign, according to the human rights campaign.
