    Truly what the fuck does 1% gay mean? In my opinion sexuality knows no bounds I don't even think we need labels but I do find it funny that the preferences to choose fron on this site range from 100% gay or straight to even one percent of either. Any one else have any thoughts...?

    1% maybe mean that you have closed that door, pulled up a desk in front of it, but left it unlocked and forgot the door opens outward..? :smile:

    1% means whatever you want it to mean. Don't over-analyze this. I think the whole "don't label me" ideology is bullshit, but there's no reason people can't give themselves whatever percentage they want. Some 1% guys will want nothing to do with men, others will happily take a cock in the butt. There is no objective standard here, and looking for one is pointless.

    Right. At least percentages, however arbitrary, are closer to seeing sexuality as a continuum rather than a specific pigeonhole. Not all straights or bisexuals or gays are alike.

    To quote South Park..... Everyone is a little bit gay.

    Just like everyone is a little bit strait.

    I just don't believe it's 100% either way, and like sex, sexuality is fluid to a point, depending on the individual, nore do I agriee with the way some users are hell bent in pigoen-holing users to a sexuality grade.

    I'm from the South. We don't 'boil down' our sexuality here. We like it battered and deep fried.

    And we have a winner.

    You're right, OP: Labels are dumb. They are, however, on of our indispensable evils as a species. Using a scale to label is at least better than a binary choice.

    lpsg %s ..indication only
    When i joined i stated 100% Gay, despite my many dalliances into the other side
    Its 'as close as' to how it is currently
    Would have had to revisit it almost daily, at one stage of life? ha
    suspect many others would have also, if they wanted to be totally correct & honest.
    NO WAY is it of any accuracy or of any importance, to be honest
    Glance over at a persons % profile and just regard it as an indication of preference
    at this time, maybe ha

    I used to have a percentage listed, but I took it down 'cause I finally realized that my sexuality couldn't be expressed as just math. If I put down 50/50, or 30/70, or 60/40, does that mean anything in terms of what I might do in any given circumstance? Maybe ... it just means I'm open to a lot of awesome, fun possibilities. I've caressed, licked and fucked both men and women and had a great time doing it all.

    Well you could make a percentage of how many heterosexual versus homosexual experiences you have had.

    So for me 100% heterosexual is correct.

    When I first joined LPSG, my percentages were 70/30, which I felt was internally consistent though not representative of either my actual experience or the way I currently live my life. I eventually changed them to 90/10, which better reflects reality.
