Well, this is actually quite affirming. Ever since I found out about the Kinsey and Klein scales, I've attested that I was somewhere between a 1 and a 1.5. The questions were short and few, but 1.1? Right on par with my self assessment. That said? Realistically? Guys are really quite icky in real life.

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid

I scored an average of 1.1


01 2 3 4 5



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
5 = predominantly homosexual, incidentally heterosexual
6 = exclusively homosexual


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.
