    I guess I am more interested in those who rank themselves in the higher mid-ranges...Like 60 to 80 percent either gay or straight. One thing that this site is great for, is reinforcing the notion that sexuality is a continuum, not black and white, and fluid. I never declared my perecentages because I feel differently all the time about it, and sometimes my activity is tipped one way, other times another way...

    But to those guys, for example, who describe themselves as 70 percent straight, what does that mean to you? Are you just super gay-friendly, or is it that you experimented as a teenager with dudes, or get the occasional bj from your buddies, while staying happily married. I totally buy it, my best friend falls into that category.

    Anyway, share your assessment of yourself, as it relates to the percentage you have declared.

    I do see it as black and white, there is no 10 or 80 % gay, you either are or you arent.
    the only exception I see is for bisexuals and that is still not any percentage of being straight.

    I based my percentage solely on sexual attraction. There are lots of females I think are beautiful but I have zero sexual desire for them. At the same time, I'm not a 'super-gay' who screams and faints at the sight of 'flap'. I watch A LOT of straight porn but I have NEVER been turned on by any of the women in porn. Whenever I watch straight porn I never fantasize about being the guy, I ALWAYS imagine I'm the girl. I don't fit into many of the gay cliches or stereotypes.

    I decided to go by sexual attraction because that was the easiest for me. 100% gay, no question. To choose a percentage based on my 'behaviour' of watching straight porn or by how much of a stereotype I am (or am not) would be difficult for me because I wouldn't really be able to work out a formula or calculation - I didn't come here to do boring old maths equations.....I'm an all or nothing person - fiddling with percentages is too much bother.

    I am attracted only to men. I want to have sex only with men. Therefore I see myself as 100% gay.

    Sorry if my post is rambling, I wrote it in a stream-of-consciousness way rather than a well thought out idea.

    I say 20 because I know I am not running off bucket loads of testosterone. I prefer the word sensitive and considerate to camp.

    My 20% comes from the way I like to dress/interact with people. I'm carefree, loving, innocent. Some people would call that camp, but it is who I am. I also find I get on with guys easily and am attracted to some, although have no sexual desire for them, just their company.

    I don't use the per cent system because it just does not fit me. My desire for women (and specifically for my wife) is 100%, but my desire for certain men is also 100%. Nothing is half-ass or otherwise less than total about my attraction to either sex.

    I love women. I have only ever been intimate with women. I've never done anything with a man. For me the 1% just shows my willingness to be open minded and explore avenues of pleasure if the occasion should arise. I could see even possibly having a j/o buddy but I have no interest in anything beyond that. But hey who knows, anything is possible.

    Frankly I could care less about, gay, straight or bi. How about, I am a just a human being with a sexual nature.

    Well amen to that thought! I agree that it is exceptionally great to have these percentages on this site and reinforce the notion that sexual orientation really is a continuum, or is situational at the least.

    Explain mine? Well, I've had sex with women and enjoyed it so I sure as heck am not 100% gay, but I've had sex with a bunch more men so I sure as heck am not 100% straight. I prefer sex with men, and haven't had sex with a woman in almost 15 years, so I figure I can't be anything more than 20% straight. That seemed like too much...but since I do watch straight porn sometimes and get off on it, 1% straight seemed like too little, so I went with 90/10.

    Each of us decides based on our own subjective thought process so we really shouldn't question other people's assignments of percentages. However, to me, if you are a guy who joins the Large Penis Support Group, and looks at pictures of other guy's cocks here, and posts pics of your own cock for guys (and ladies) here to look at, you can't really be 100% straight. 99% maybe, but the 100% straight guys would not even ever come to this site.

    Why not? There's no rule that says you have to look at cock pictures.

    Physically I like both men and women, but mentally I have problems understanding women, so that´s the reason why I consider myself mostly gay ;)

    Because even that physically and sexually I DO like women, I almost never have sex with them LOL

    Nine out of ten sexual partners that I have had have were men, so that pretty muchs explains my percentage.

    I have known my sexual preference since puberty. I've always been attracted to guys and in the school yard I knew I was different from other boys.
    It is obvious to me my percentage is 100% gay.

    I wrote about it here. Being Different and Gay Pride.

    No matter which gonads you have, your body normally produces the opposite sex hormones even though very small amount. I am not sure how much sexual preference or behavior depends upon the individual blood level of sex hormones, however, I don't think there can be 100% extremities in sexuality. just my humble opinion.

    I like to share male sexual energy without having sexual acts with males. Well built straight masculine Males and gorgeous Model type feminine Females are my Preferences to have encounters with. Jerking with and/or Sharing a beautiful woman with a man's man like me is a little fetish of mine.

    I see it the same way, except the occasions did arise.

    I dont have any inclination for sex with guys.
    It has happened that some guys felt like
    going down on me and I've let them
    so I figure, 100% cant be quite accurate.

    I've had sexual experiences mostly with women, but also with a few with guys. Actually I've had some relationships with guys that are really deep and emotionally and sexually satisfying. I would also say that I'm open to having affairs with women and men equally but have found in actual life, I meet more women than guys who are interested...at least in terms of the ones I find attractive. I'd say I'm generally more attracted to women on the whole than men, but some men really can do it for me.

    I have very good male and female friends an really enjoy the company of both. But when it comes to sex, I don't have any desire for women. I tried twice with a girl. The first time there was intimacy between the both of us, I really felt a connection, which felt really good and genuine, but just no sexual desire despite the fact that she was a very beautiful girl. The second time I was very drunk and very horny and we had sex, but it just didn't feel right. But I am happy I gave it a try. At least now I know for sure...

    With boys it is a completely different story. I can get the desire, and act on it, without the need of true intimacy. Each time I had sex with a guy it felt just right. I can get horny from seeing a nice boy, never from seeing a nice and beautiful women.

    For me, the percentages mean how likely you are going to settle down for the rest of your life in a heterosexual relationship, or in a homosexual relationship. For me, I'm sure I'll be with a woman in the end. If there's a bump in the road like "oh my God viewing cocks on the internet!" I don't think that takes away at all from my end destination.

    I'd say, that a sexuality *can* change over time. I guess it's only logic, since we do evolve, mature and grow. It's the same thing with tastes in a lot of other things, they can grow stronger or fade away to be replaced with something else.

    I, myself, am gay though, oh so gay. ;) The 1% is from atleast being able to view Doms, Shys, Teasings, Hcs and others cams while they sometimes show boobies or more (even though I most of the times say "Euw". :p).


    So.. bisexuals according to you are..? I sure hope you'll never be so drunk, or out of your mind, that you experience some man-on-man (even if it's not as far as fucking), then your whole world will be shattered!

    Oh, Jonesy! That sentence in bold seems a bit on the dangerous side. :/ You're saying that a persons clothes and the way they interact with people comes from their sexuality? Sounds a bit judgemental. Just because you're gay, doesn't mean you're sensitive, considerate, carefree, loving or innocent (it's just a coincidence I am, hihi.. :wink:). :p I might have read you wrong, but it sounds like you're linking those personality treats (together with a sense for fashion; "the way I like to dress") with a (gay) sexuality. :eek:

    OMG, you have a picture uploaded! That shocked me! ;P

    Those deep relationships you've had sound so fulfilling (no pun intended, HONESTLY :tongue:), I'm jealous! :)

    As mentioned above, in the middle, between the eas
    Mine is because I am not sexually attracted to men. I think men are beautiful, like all human beings, and I sometimes enjoy checking to make sure my parts are the correct size and configuration, but even the few brushes I have had with men in a sexual context were experimental and half hearted at best. I am grateful never to have been afraid of new experiences, but when I think of sex I think of women exclusively.
    That's why.
