Nearly half of 18-24 year olds in Britain surveyed say they are not 100% heterosexual

sexual orientationEarlier this month approximately 1,600 people in Britain were asked by YouGov to plot themselves on a ‘sexuality scale’. Invented by Alfred Kinsey in the 1940s, the Kinsey scale plots individuals on a range of sexual dispositions from exclusively heterosexual at 0 through to exclusively homosexual at 6. Where the original study had a large number of methods for placing people, YouGov simply asked people to place themselves on the sexuality scale.  Below I’ve included some of the data points that I found most interesting.

  • 72% of the British public place themselves at the completely heterosexual end of the scale
  • 4% put themselves at the completely homosexual end of the scale
  • 19% say they are somewhere in between – classed as bisexual in varying degrees by Kinsey
  • 43% of 18-24 year-olds place themselves in the non-binary area
  • 7% of respondents over age 60 identified any degree of bisexuality

Thanks for the heads up from Joe My God’s blog about this interesting survey. I found this a quick and interesting read. You can read more about the survey and findings from the YouGov websiteYouGov

Quote of the day: Sex without love

cuddling in bedI had to laugh last month when I was reading a UK blog I enjoy perusing from time to time when I stumbled upon this quote, “Sex without love is an empty experience, but as empty experiences go, it’s one of the best…”  

It is unclear to me if the blogger nabbed that from another of if that was their own words.  Regardless it made me laugh. I’m sure there are plenty who read this blog who would probably agree with his sentiments.

Saturday night video: Sex Ed

I first post this video about a year ago but had forgotten about it until someone had reminded me about it earlier this week so I thought I’d share it again.

This YouTube video of Julia Sweeney sharing her discussion about the birds and the bees with her eight-year-old daughter is absolutely hilarious.  This clip is completely safe for work; I actually teared up at one point from laughing so hard.

Arrest me – please!

leather, uniform, rubber, fetishI think I need to book a flight to Norway and engage in civil disobedience.  Much thanks to blogger, Stan, for sharing this on his blog. I couldn’t help but swipe it.

Stan writes a very NSFW blog called Metro Dystopia.

Say it with a condom

Unicorns are gay horsesI don’t often get merchandise mailed to me but earlier this week, Say it with a condom, sent me a batch of their Pride campaign condoms.  Each condom comes with a message; some more sobering than others, but mostly all quite funny like this one that explains unicorns are just gay horses.

You can order a few of each or as many of one message as you like from their website and 25% of all the profits form their sale will be donated to non-profit organizations that help promote LGBT equality and awareness.
