The Spectrum of Sexuality

28 Jul

Have you heard of the Kinsey scale? I have not and I just came across it recently and I was very fascinated to read about it so I thought I share it here on the blog for the world to discover their sexuality. Just kidding. I guess anything about sexuality ‘arouses’ (pun intended) my curiosity.

According to the Kinsey scale, sexuality can be scaled between two opposites, heterosexuality and homosexuality.



Rating   Description

0           Exclusively heterosexual

1           Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual

2           Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual

3           Equally heterosexual and homosexual.

4           Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual

5           Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual

6           Exclusively homosexual

X           Asexual, Non-Sexual

The last bit is rather funny and interesting at the same time. I cannot imagine anyone being asexual except perhaps plants. I am sorry but I don’t think monks and highly attained Beings are asexual. I think they just channeled that energy towards spiritual realisation and/or benefitting others.

Hence, I think Tantra is such a powerful and effective method toward reaching enlightenment. I say that because all beings are consumed by desire and Tantric methods taps into such a powerful source as sexual desire and convert it into spiritual transformation. How this is done is beyond the scope of this little blog post but I might get into that later. Anyway, what’s your scale and can you guess mine? Hehe!

    LOL! Sexuality is a preference and its not an act.

    David, how can gay people use tantra to channel sexual energy to gain attainment?

    Dear rawr,
    Finding a qualified Lama, dedicating themselves towards studying the Dharma, Dharma work, collecting lots of merits and requesting the Lama for Vajrayogini initiation. Vajrayogini has a a very powerful means whatever sexual preference that you are.
