There Are 11 Sexual Orientation In The World, Which One Is Yours?

I never gave a second thought to sexual orientation because getting attracted to boys is considered normal for girls. You suddenly like boys and want to talk to them and with time you know that it’s just more than talking, you like them. You date and if you really like him, you make love. It is normal and simple.

I didn’t think much of it when I heard about the word ‘homosexual’, ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’ because, for me, it was their choice. It wasn’t until I saw a documentary on transgender people and realized how difficult it was for them to understand their gender and their orientation.

Now, Sexual preference suggests a degree of voluntary choice, whereas the scientific consensus is that sexual orientation is not a choice. So if you know someone who isn’t conforming to the societal normas, let them be and accept them.


Someone who doesn’t experience any sexual attraction. Some asexuals experience sexual arousal and may even masturbate but do not feel the need to engage in sexual activity with other people.

Pan Sexual

Someone capable of being attracted to people of all gender identities and any biological sex. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are not determining factors in their romantic or sexual attraction to others.


Someone who is attracted to the opposite gender. I don’t think I need to explain more, our parents are the examples.


Bisexuality is a romantic and sexual attraction towards both males and females.


They are just sexually and romantically attracted to their same gender. They include gays and lesbians.

Poly Sexual

Polysexuality is sexual attraction to multiple, but not all, genders. A polysexual person is one “encompassing or characterized by many different kinds of sexuality”. Polysexuality is distinct from polyamory, the desire to be intimately involved with more than one person at once, or pansexuality, which is an attraction to all genders and sexes. Polysexuality encompasses many, but not necessarily all, sexualities.


A sapiosexual is a relatively new word that describes a person who views intelligence as their biggest form of arousal with a partner. Intelligence and observing those using it in action is the greatest turn-on for them. If you have heard, intelligence is the new sexy?


This refers to people who aren’t able to feel a sexual connection with someone until they feel a romantic connection with them.


This refers to people who feel romantic attraction to both men and women. Biromantic asexuals seek romantic relationships for a variety of reasons including companionship, affection, and intimacy, but they are not sexually attracted to their romantic partners.


This refers to someone who prefers to have sex with themselves over having sex with others. If masturbating is all you want to do, you could be an autosexual.


This refers to people who don’t feel any type of romantic attraction at all. However, they can still feel sexual attraction.

While there are different sexual, asexual orientations out there and it’s fine if you don’t adhere to one. As humans, we should allow people to just be. What’s wrong if they like someone irrespective of their genders? Why do we have to label right or wrong? Our law needs to be updated, including the article 377.
