Statistics on sexuality are easy to find. Statistics on sexuality that agree with each other are another matter.

Of course, much of this might depend on the way in which a particular study defines "homosexuality" or "bisexuality". A survey that asks people if they identify as homosexual would reveal different numbers from one that asks if people are attracted to members of their own gender, or one that asks if they've had same-gender sexual experiences.

Anecdotally, though, I'd say I've observed more male homosexuals than female ones, but females tend to be more open to having non-defining same-sex experiences. Certainly, that's how things are portrayed in popular culture.


(Friday, INT: CA and TH's place)

JH: So did you have to go through a regimen to become both androsexual and...
CA: ...Gynosexual?
JH: Gynosexual, thank you.
CA: No, I didn't. I was bi right out of the gate.
CA: And I guess, if I'm being honest with myself, Max didn't do it just for me.
JH: It does effectively double her number of potential partners.
CA: Of course. And there's a certain cultural expectation, too.
CA: Being "bicurious" tends to be more accepted in women than it is in men, particularly in our college years... despite the fact that, statistically, it's more common in men than it is in women.
JH: At what point does "bicuriosity" transition to full-on "bisexuality"?
CA: I suppose when you're no longer curious about it. But then, I think you're never too old or too experienced to be curious about things, wouldn't you say?
JH: Well, as much as I'm in favour of life-long learning, I think I can safely say I'm not androcurious... or Wallacecurious or Simoncurious, for that matter.
