    Ok, I've been thinking about this. How do the percentage ratings go for here? I see some dudes with 10% homosexual, what does that mean?

    For me I picked 100% homosexual. But if Beyonce invited me back home, I can't say I won't try something because I think she is hot. So how would the percentages here tie into the Kinsey scale, I wonder?

    I don't know about the kinsey scale but let's just say for 90% hetero 10% homo 9 out of 10 times the guy or gal would choose a member of the opposite sex and one time out of ten would choose a same sex person for 'copulation' hehe. Or better would be that they like the opposite sex but admire or like to look at the same sex too. The more % homo I guess the more they would like to do with someone of the same sex. It might be hard to explain but I've found it neat and interesting, seems accurate...

    Basically, the farther you are from 100% heterosexual, the more often you think members of the same sex are hot, or the farther you are from 100% homosexual, the more often you think members of the opposite sex are hot. At 50-50, you're about even.

    It's really hard to quantify.

    Knight and Jonb I think that you hit the nail on the head there, I think that it is great that this site has the % thing coz it is much harder to categorise most people into the str8, bi or gay stereotypes. Because I prefer girls I generally would put str8 on a profile even though I do like guys sexually too. I don't put bi generally coz it is thought that then you don't care which sex you get like the 50-50 senario. Here we can show what our sexual preferences are more accurately which is much better. The number of people that are 100% anything is generally less than the ones inbetween so this way we can all get a clearer idea of what we are all into.

    I put down 100% hetero because I don't find men attractive and wouldn't ever engage in sexual activity with them. I have had one homosexual experience but it's not something I'm looking to repeat. I've had many opportunities but it's not going to happen.

    I'd say that if you're attracted to women at all, and like you said, would be willing to go home with Beyonce, that makes you at least 10% hetero. Maybe if Beyonce is the ONLY woman you would consider doing anything with, that might be more like 1% hetero and then not worth counting. For instance, I'd probably let Trent Reznor have his way with me if he really wanted to, more because I am in complete awe of his talent than because I am in any way sexually attracted to him, but that's never going to happen so I don't bother counting this.

    Ultimately though, does it really matter? pick something in the ballpark of where you think your attitude is and this will help give people some idea of where you stand. Since there are lots of guys on here who are gay or bi that's helpful, and I'm sure that's all it was intended for. A helpful tool for those who want to use it, but not exactly scientific.

    No no...too much thinking here. I used the scale for reference to make my question.

    I second the response of Knight and Jonb...But I do like the percentage thing on this site - does make you put things in perspective and think...

    Dr Alfred C.Kinsey published a landmark study called Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male. You might have heard of it. This was the study where he suggested that many men are not 100% homosexual or 100% heterosexual but rather somewhere in between, or as he put it, in highly technical terms, "The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats".

    He went on to create what became the "Kinsey Scale" to better describe this sexual orientation continuum. The publication of the Kinsey Scale was really the birth of the modern concept of human sexuality.

    The Kinsey Scale
    0 - Exclusively heterosexual with no homosexual acts
    1 - Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual act
    2 - Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual act
    3 - Equally heterosexual and homosexual acts
    4 - Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual act
    5 - Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual act
    6 - Exclusively homosexual acts


    So, NineInchCock_160IQ, following The Kinsey Scale may we say you're in scale 1? Please do remember that in the total population, single and married, between adolescence and old age there is only a very small percentile 100 % hetero-, or homosexual. Perhaps instead of the percentage ratings used at LPSG at this very moment we use the Kinsey Scale ?

    Well, lascap, the Kinsey scale's also a sliding scale. In my case, some days I feel like a 0, some days like a 1, a few like a 2 or a 3. And some days I not only feel like a 3, but my condition for any sex is that both men and women are involved. And on a few days, I don't feel like having sex at all.

    Kinsey himself measured the continuum by years, three-year intervals, and lifetimes. Naturally, lifetimes had fewer 0's and 6's, while years had the most 0's and 6's.

    Jon,

    Thank for your supplement.
    This all confirms the hypothesis that 100% hetero- or homosexual in a lifetime is minimal or at least not the standard.

    I’m wondering what parts of the male anatomy do 100% heterosexual men find beautiful/sexy, and what parts do they dislike? Or, alternatively, who do they feel are examples of attractive men/unattractive men?

    Before all the "100%" guys start freaking out, consider this: women regularly talk about what parts of the female body they like, or what women they find sexy/beautiful. And even though I am gay, I could easily give a whole list of things about the female body that I think are beautiful, or name women who I think are examples of feminine beauty. I don’t think that being able to identify sexual attractiveness in someone means anything necessarily about your sexual identity but it can move you up The Scale and opens your view.

    I ask because I am interested in how we form our sexual attractions, and I think that part of the way we do that is by forming opinions about what is beautiful or sexy, both in ourselves and others. And necessarily as part of that, we form opinions about what we consider the ideal of our own sex, an ideal which presumably we try in some way to match. Which means that men think about what is attractive in men. Let’s face it, most men are very visual, and it would be very out of character for someone visual to not think about what makes someone attractive, even someone of his own sex.

    Obviously, asking "100%" men seem reluctant to admit they admire or even ever think about another male’s body. Can it be the "fear of queer" so many "100%" men have? Can we ask a "100%" man to look past his competitive nature and find an appreciation for the appearance of a man other than something that would relate to atheletic performance or strength places pressure on his ego that views himself as a true man and a homosexual as something less or is it because of asking to consider an alternative that many are afraid to accept? I'm not asking a 100% heterosexual to step outside his sexual identity. I honestly think most "100%" men are kidding themselves if they reply that they don't give the male form a second thought whatsoever but day in day out surf in the photo galleries.

    spoolworm: I'm basicly 100% heterosexual, but I chose the 10% gay because however straight you are....you never know ;)

    I don't find mens bottoms a turn on or something like that, but I have to admit I like watching hetero-porn with big dicks. If I was 100% heterosexual these big dicks would probably be a turn off, any dicks for that matter.

    For that matter showing off in the showers is also basicly a bit gay...so. Out of honesty I chose 10%.

    This doesn't mean I will ever have sex with a man, it just means that I may occasionaly find a man has attractive features.

    I've had girlfriends who i had intercourse with, but that was
    before i ever was with guys.

    But would i sleep with a woman now? Probably not, only because i wouldnt
    want to lead someone on.
    I can get off with a girl, but my emotional and physical ties are really with guys.

    So, that is why i posted 100 percent homosexual...but perhaps i should change it to 90/10

    Another interesting thread. I'm finding myself coming back to this issue every once and a while,but more frequently when visiting this site.

    Part of what makes this group so cool is that there are some of us, women & men, who find that this is a place where we can say anything we want about ourselves & our sexuality. The "Large Penis" aspect definitely gives us a handle,as it were, to organize our thoughts and feelings, and to express those things without feeling judged. I've had conversations with people here that I've never had in any other part of my life. It seems as if there is some sort of sisterhood and brotherhood going on here that defines description. So when I'm here, I don't have to be anything, not straight,not gay,not bisexual. I can just be me, expressing what I feel or think about some issue, with no internal or external obstacles.

    So maybe I get to be 100% sexual when I'm here & I can like or appreciate all I see, listen to, or share.

    So, it's that much easier to resist the urge to categorize yourself while you're here, then? I guess I see where you're coming from. It's not like I would try to explain my "10% attraction to guys" to many of the friends I hang out with in real life. It's a bit of a headache, and I prefer to keep that part of me to myself unless I feel like I really trust someone.

    I keep tabs on a few members here and we talk through IMs, and it's much, much easier to talk dick and body stuff -- even with other guys from the forum. It's probably easier because I don't have to worry about getting a bad reaction; it's just someone on the other end of the computer. No big deal. I bet it's because, for whatever reason we're here, we can all share the comfort of being able to let loose without judgment. Some take that a little further than others, of course, especially if they may be typically heterosexual on a day-to-day basis but can feel comfortable acknowledging, for example, someone of the same gender may be attractive.

    Is it necessarily a sexual, lustful attraction? Not always. And can we talk freely about showing off? Probably. Or, what about getting in touch with our deeper feelings and emotions in a safe online forum? You bet. Not that this feeling of freedom leaves out people who are already pretty outspoken or comfortable with themselves and don't feel the need to hide anything. To that I say, go on with yo' bad self. But to those who can take down that personal boundary -- that must make a world of difference.

    But it is important to make a strong statement to the (your) world and one should fight for equal rights, respect and trust as long there is sexual discrimination.
    It's easy to say: I don't have to be anything, but remember the world will give you a label any way. It will happen by the Tax office, City hall, your Gouvernment or local church.....so it's better to speak up and fight for your right.

    If more and more people are being able to let loose without sexual judgment and get in touch with there deeper feelings and true emotions the world can be a more happy place with respect and understand, just like LPSG.

    Kinsey's scale only measures sexual experience, not pyschic attraction to the opposite or same sex. There may be some co-relation there, but not necessarily.

    For example, by counting my sexual experiences, I'm a "4" but in my present mindset, I'm definitely a "6".

    Not the scale but the report "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" and it's data measures the physical experience. The scale "classification tool" does measures physical and/or psychic response !!

    "The data on the heterosexual-homosexual ratings, do take into account these homosexual contacts in which the subject fails to reach climax. Accumulative incidence curves based upon heterosexual-homosexual ratings may, therefore, be somewhat higher than the accumulative incidence curves based upon overt contacts carried through to the point of actual orgasm."


    Hereby just level 0 and 1 see show you difficult it is to be a 100% and 0 Kinsey Scaled straight guy.

    Heterosexual-Homosexual rating scale " The Kinsey Scale":

    0. Individuals are rated as 0's if they make no physical contacts which result in erotic arousal or orgasm, and make no psychic responses to individuals of their own sex. Their socio-sexual contacts and responses are exclusively with individuals of the opposite sex.

    1. Individuals are rated as 1's if they have only incidental homosexual contacts which have involved physical or psychic response, or incidental psychic responses without physical contact. The great preponderance of their socio-sexual experience and reactions is directed toward individuals of the opposite sex. Such homosexual experiences as these individuals have may occur only a single time or two, or at least infrequently in comparison to the amount of their heterosexual experience. Their homosexual experiences never involve as specific psychic reactions as they make to heterosexual stimuli. Sometimes the homosexual activities in which they engage may be inspired by curiosity, or may be more or less forced upon them by other individuals, perhaps when they are asleep or when they are drunk, or under some other peculiar circumstance.""
