I assume it's this, or something very similar...

I score a one - 'only incidentally homosexual'. Going back, I think this is because as with most of these things I go with the precise wording of the question, and a couple of those are loosely worded once again.

I guess I'd probably put myself as a two-three on Cassie's scale. A couple of guys have made passes at me, and if I weren't in a committed monogamous relationship I might have been tempted, just to try. But I can't see myself in a long-term homosexual relationship, and I can't see myself in a short term sexual relationship of any kind.

Seeker gave me a link through PM and I actually failed the test. Those orgies questions really stumped me.

Erm...8? (I think I usually shake out at about at Kinsey 5.) I have a fairly strong aesthetic appreciation for the male form, and in my single days I would happily make out with almost anyone, regardless of gender. But the thought of having sex with a man, or of forming any kind of lasting romantic connection with one, always seemed unlikely in the extreme.

So, I guess...homosexual, homoromantic, pansensual?

So Wind, if I believe that I'm a 1 or 2 on the Kinsey Scale and 3 or 4 on this 1-10 scale, what terms would you use to describe me?

Well, I s'pose that depends on your stance on various entanglements with members of your own gender. Kissing but no sex? No-strings-attached sex but no romantic relationships? Mostly all of the above but open to doing otherwise if the right person came along?

The thing is, I haven't done anything gay but I do find women physically attractive.

I don't think I can give an answer to this question. I don't consider myself on any scale, and while I have been attracted to both men and women I am engaged to a man.

I can't help but think that if we stopped discussing gender in attraction, people might assign much less importance to it.

True, but you can't deny that there's always people who are going to be on one side of the spectrum (to the extreme) then others. It's rare but I do believe there's people out there that are 100% hetero or 100% homo.

thats how i feel, i think i could love a woman and be with her, but not sexually, i could admire her body but i dont think i could have sexual relations with another woman

id probably place myself at a 1 as well

I honestly would have to rate myself a 2 or 3. I have been with a man, and while I could never see myself in a relationship with them, I can't say I didn't like it. It may only have been once, and I, having been intoxicated at the time, have to attribute part of it to the un-inhibiting effects of the alcohol. Would I do it again? possibly. But it's something that I don't see myself pursuing. I find myself attracted to women, giving the males of this world a fleeting glance, if any.
