Developed by Alfred Kinsey, the Kinsey scale attempts to describe a person's sexual experience or response, with 0 being exclusively heterosexual and 6 being exclusively homosexual. It remains widely used today, although most modern psychologists and sexologists consider it relevant but not adequate to describe the full spectrum of human sexual experience and desire.
The Kinsey Scale
|1||Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual|
|2||Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual|
|3||Equally heterosexual and homosexual|
|4||Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual|
|5||Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual|
|X||No socio-sexual contacts or reactions|
