Sexual Orientations

Sexual Orientation refers to the nature of an individual's sexual preference, usually classified according to the gender of those whom they find sexually attractive.

Orientation includes a psychological aspect, such as the preference of erotic desire, and/or a behavioural aspect that focuses on the sex of the individual's sexual partner(s).

The most commonly used categories of sexual orientation are heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality and transexuality.

People of alternate sexuality have historically been subject to misunderstanding, innuendo, hatred and condemnation - while other civilizations have welcomed and endorsed these lifestyles (sometimes covertly).

Here we explore all the options, while separating fact from fiction. Vive la différence!
