On the Redeemed Survey, we asked people, “How would you describe your sexuality?”
So far, 2100 people have answered this as of 1am UK time on 7th September 2014. The results are:
- Straight: 589
- Gay / Lesbian: 152
- Bi: 477
- Pan: 267
- Other: 233
- Working it out: 372
The images above represent the data from the 210 people (interestingly, exactly 10% of the people who answered the question) who ticked Other and specified another orientation.
The larger the text, the more people who used the term to describe themselves.
As you can see, we have created two versions of the image. The top one takes into account every term used. As is very clear, "asexual" was by far the most common term used by people who felt their sexuality wasn’t described by the tick box choices listed above. 145 people described themselves as asexual, either solely or in combination with another term.
The second image omits the term “asexual” so the less-frequently used terms can be seen more clearly.
