According to Medical News Today, there are over 25 different sexualities: we’ll only focus on five though. These are asexuality, hetersexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, and pansexuality.

But first, what do we mean when we say sexuality? Sexuality describes a person’s desire to have sex or form a relationship with other people.

Asexuality (Ace)

This is an umbrella term that describes people who do not experience sexual attraction. This is a spectrum which includes people who are repulsed by sexual behavior, people infrequently feel sexual attraction, people who engage in sexual behavior, and many more.


Heterosexuals are people who feel sexual attraction to people of the opposite gender. Socially, we call them straight.


Homosexuals are people who feel sexual attraction to people who are their own gender. Socially, gay describes men and lesbian describes women.


Bisexuals are people of any gender who feel attraction to both their own gender and others. Usually, when people say bisexual, they mean someone attracted to both cis-men and cis-women.


Pansexuals are people of any gender who feel attraction to both their own gender and others. Usually, when people say pansexual, they mean someone attracted to cis-men, cis-women, trans-men, trans-women, and non-binary folks.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Sexualities are fluid and your sexual identity can change
  • Sexualities are a spectrum
  • Gender expression does not equate sexual orientation
  • Terms are imperfect and should be used as guidelines
