The following research shows what we already know intuitively about sexual orientation.
It does however bring to light some interesting features
1. of the nature of bisexual orientation among approximately 19% of the population ,
2 of the possibility that the modern British society may be nurturing bisexuals and
3. that there is no smooth continous Kinsey scale across the general population.
The researchers found :
Firstly : there are heterosexuals, bisexuals and homosexuals in the UK population.
Secondly : the vast majority of the population are heterosexuals, (72%)
Thirdly : a small minority of persons are homosexuals ( 4%)
Fourthly : 19% of the population have bisexual attraction
There is variation in the nature of the bisexual attraction in this 19% of
the population with the vast majority of this group 15% of the 19%
tending to heterosexuality , 2% in the middle and 2% tending to
homosexuality. It is among bisexuals that something akin to a Kinsey
scale could be considered.
Fifthly : significant numbers of those 18 to 24 years old consider themselves to be bisexual. modern British society may be nurturing bisexuals

The Anglican Mainstream expresses concern about ” The Bottom Line”

Pink News reported on a letter, Dr Lisa Nolland, lay minister and blogger for Anglican Mainstream, sent to her MP in which she claims that legalising same-sex marriage will lead to children being taught risky sexual practises in school, including “eating human faeces”.
The letter states :
I am deeply concerned about the impact of gay ‘marriage’ (which the Prime Minister continues to endorse) on children and young people.
The Terrence Higgins Trust is a ‘charity’ which has been generously funded by the state to work with kids age 14 and older in schools around the country. Its site materials are labelled as mainstream sexual ‘health’ and endorsed by the NHS. The NHS page for Young People even directs kids to a page on the THT site which features its ‘Playzones’, THT-sponsored venues for semi-public, anonymous, promiscuous sex in dark toilets and saunas, with tips on illegal anal drug use and cleaning up the blood produced by such sex acts afterwards. ‘Playzones’ are endorsed by the NHS and the London Metropolitan Police.
Another NHS- and THT- endorsed sexual ‘health’ book for ‘gay’ children 13 and up in Dorset is called ‘The Sexy Stuff’.* These organisations are essentially endorsing high-risk sex activity like rimming and anal sex. The latter is 20 times more risky that vaginal sex, because of the fragile construction of the rectal wall and the very real possibility of tearing the membrane and subsequent leakage back into the blood stream of rectal content which is packed with pathogenic organisms. It is one of the reasons MSM (men who have sex with men) experience such high rates of STIs./STDs (including HIV/AIDS). In this country HIV/AIDS rates among the MSM community (ca. 1-2% of the population) comprise almost 75% of new HIV infections sexually acquired in the UK (2010), and this figure continues to climb. In terms of expense, it costs more than £300,000 per patient for a lifetime of care. One in 11 MSMs in London is estimated to be HIV positive, according to the BMJ (British Medical Journal, p. 11, 31 March 2012). According to THT, ca. 1/4 of those remain unaware of their status. Even THT admits AIDS is still a killer (680 died in 2010).
I understand no one wants to sound the alarm because this stuff is so appalling, and any critique of gay world is damned as homophobic and a harbinger of professional suicide. Such is the result of the pressure exerted on almost every one of our mainstream institutions by LGBT rights groups. However, this content is dangerous and damaging and if gay ‘marriage’ becomes legal we will get far more of this directly pumped into schools. This has already happened in Massachusetts, which legalized gay ‘marriage’ in 2004. The following year kids (11 and up) received the appalling Little Black Book** in a school context. Gay marriage entails gay sex. Legalising gay ‘marriage’ will make mandatory the teaching about gay relationships and gay sex. In the powerful name of LGBT rights, graphic materials like those produced by THT will become much more mainstream for underage teens. If gay relationships are included and protected under the umbrella of the institution of marriage, anyone who tries to take a stand against the promotion of this material will be seen as anti-gay and effectively silenced. Even now, it is nigh impossible to get anyone in public office to address this egregious content – who will venture to do this when gay ‘marriage’ is legal?
This is a simply massive issue which has been whitewashed, denied, and ignored by this ‘pro-family’ government. We are in fact damaging children and young people because we are allowing special interest groups access to school populations, knowing that on their sites (which kids are assured provide good advice) they are tacitly or overtly encouraged to experiment with high-risk, psychologically and physically dangerous sex acts which can cost them their lives. We teach our children to wash their hands after going to the toilet; THT’s site resource, ‘The Bottom Line’*** (p. 16) describes individuals who gain sexual stimulation by eating human faeces as part of their sex ‘play’. What madness is happening here?
As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, ‘Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act’.
I look forward to hearing from you.
The article concludes :
Catherine Murphy, Head of Public Affairs at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “As exercises in wilful ignorance go, Dr Nolland’s letter will take a bit of beating. Not only does she entirely miss the point of sex and relationships education, that is to educate and support young people to develop healthy relationships in adulthood and to value themselves and their sexuality, she also deliberately seeks to conflate the issue of equal marriage with the sexual mores of a tiny minority of gay men. This is, for want of a better word, bizarre.
“The Bottom Line is a resource that is produced for adult gay men. It is not something that we have ever or will ever use in schools, irrespective of the legal status of equal marriage. Dr Nolland’s proclamations are quite simply scaremongering of the silliest kind.”

1 in 2 young people say they are not 100% heterosexual
Invented by Alfred Kinsey in the 1940s, the Kinsey scale plots individuals on a range of sexual dispositions from exclusively heterosexual at 0 through to exclusively homosexual at 6. Where the original study had a large number of methods for placing people, YouGov simply asked people to place themselves on the sexuality scale.
Taken as a whole, 72% of the British public place themselves at the completely heterosexual end of the scale, while 4% put themselves at the completely homosexual end and 19% say they are somewhere in between – classed as bisexual in varying degrees by Kinsey. Of the people that do place themselves in this 1-5 area, the majority incline away from homosexuality – 15% are closer to the heterosexual end, 2% directly in the middle and 2% are closer to the homosexual end.
With each generation, people see their sexuality as less fixed in stone. The results for 18-24 year-olds are particularly striking, as 43% place themselves in the non-binary area between 1 and 5 and 52% place themselves at one end or the other. Of these, only 46% say they are completely heterosexual and 6% as completely homosexual.
People of all generations now accept the idea that sexual orientation exists along a continuum rather than a binary choice – overall 60% of heterosexuals support this idea, and 73% of homosexuals. 28% of heterosexuals believe that ‘there is no middle ground – you are either heterosexual or you are not’.
But what does it mean to be at 1 on the scale, and what is the difference being here or at 2? According to the research, progressing further away from ‘completely heterosexual’ (0) towards the midpoint (3, or ‘completely bisexual’) increases the chance that you have had a sexual experience with a member of the opposite sex. 23% of those at level 1 have had a sexual encounter with a member of the opposite sex, while 52% of people at level 2 have had such an experience.
Clearly, these figures are not measures of active bisexuality – overall, 89% of the population describes themselves as heterosexual – but putting yourself at level 1 allows for the possibility of homosexual feelings and experiences. More than anything, it indicates an increasingly open minded approach to sexuality. In a further set of questions asking if respondents could conceivably be attracted to, have sex with or have a relationship with someone of the same sex (if the right person came along at the right time), level 1s were at least 35% more likely to say they could than level 0s.
