Sexual orientation

Sexual orientation is one of the five main components of Sexual Identity. It is the erotic-affective inclination for one sex/gender or another. It can be towards the opposite, heterosexual, towards the same, homosexual, or both, bisexual. Kinsey introduced the categories mostly heterosexual, mostly homosexual, and broadened the bisexual spectrum. The overcoming of the binary sexual model amplifies the proper definition of the orientation. So, we have new categories, such as pansexual, omnisexual, polysexual, demisexual, etc. Besides, concerning how the orientation is, people can be allosexual, asexual, or graysexual (greysexual).
