Knowing Your Sexuality | Sexual Orientation

Hey dear, welcome back to my blog; if this is your first time here,  “welcome”. You’re so dear to my heart.

I have been thinking……..yes, about the sexuality of a thing. We’ve always heard about gays and lesbians, It’s acceptance or rejection in one society or the other. First thought that crossed my mind was if these people were born that way or chose to live that way. Could I have a tendency towards any sexuality other than being “straight”?

This is because I have come to know that asides homosexuality (gays and lesbians), there are over….
20 other types of sexualities. I’ll identity the 12 most prevalent types. Hopefully, you should fall into either of them.
  1. Homosexual:
We’re very conversant with this type of sexuality. This refers to a person who is sexually attracted to someone of same sex, I.e. Boy to boy (gay) and girl to girl (lesbian).
  1. Heterosexual:
This is generally known too as a person attracted only to the opposite sex. It is also referred to as being ‘straight’.

  1. Bisexual:
This type of person is always attracted to both men and women alike. I elaborated more on this Here after the finding out that my one of my girlfriends was bisexual.
  1. Metrosexual:
This refers to a straight man who embraces homosexuality lifestyle; refined change of taste in clothing, excessive use of designer hygiene products and so on. They usually very attractive too.

    Sapiosexual:
This is someone who i sexually attracted to others because of their intelligence.

  1. Demisexual:
This type of person isn’t sexually attracted to anyone until they’ve developed a strong emotional or romantic connection with you. They need to become friends before they can be sexually involved but when they eventually get there, their attraction tend to get very intense.
  1. Asexual:
This person is not sexually attracted to anyone for any reason whatsoever and it is very natural.
  1. Biromantic:
A biromantic feels romantic attraction to both males and females. (Note: Sexual attraction & romantic attraction are two entirely different things)
  1. Demi-romantic:
A typical demiromantic won’t feel any romantic attraction until they’ve formed a very strong emotional bond with the person.
  1. Asexual:
Anyone with this sexual orientation won’t feel any kind of sexual attraction at all, but is still capable of being in a healthy relationship.
  1. Autosexual:
This type of person would rather have sex with themselves (masturbate) instead of having sex with others.

  1. Omnisexual:
As the name depicts, this person feels an equal amount of attraction or affection to everyone. They don’t prefer a particular gender over the other.
Phew! (cleans sweaty face)
That was quite a list and I am glad you read it through. And I certain that you now know what your sexual orientation is. You know where you belong.
Well……errrr…(laughs) Ok. From this list, there are times when I can display asexual tendencies even though mood swings would have t take the blame (smiles) but, I am more of a Demisexual, heterosexual and sapiosexual.
I’d love to know yours too, in the comment section. Self acceptance is key.
