Flaunting Your Spot on the Kinsey Scale

In 1948, when Alfred Kinsey released the first of his reports on sexual behavior, he introduced the world to the idea of a continuum of sexual orientation. The Kinsey scale went from 0 (totally heterosexual) to 6 (totally homosexual), with the numbers in between for various degrees of bisexuality. It’s worth noting that Kinsey was focused on sexual experiences, rather than fantasies or desires, so Dr. Fritz Klein later developed the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid to capture the nuances of attraction, behavior, fantasies, and more.

In any case, I just discovered that the Kinsey Institute sells these fantastic baseball jerseys that are just perfect for letting the world know where you are on the scale (as long as you’re an exact number and not 3.749)
