Sexuality Continuum

Sexuality ContinuumOur sexual orientation and preference is probably not one discrete and rigid reality. Many believe that our sexuality, and our sexual preference, lies somewhere along an emotional and physical continuum from 100% homosexual to 100% heterosexual. Not only might it be found somewhere along a continuum of sexuality, but it might also have the element of being “fluid.” That is, depending on our education, development, emotions, needs for intimacy, etc., as the years go on, our sexual preference may move along the continuum. Sometimes therapists use this continuum concept for clients who are aware that their preference for emotional, and sexual partners may be other than heterosexual.
