SEXUAL ORIENTATION QUESTIONS: As demonstrated in the surveys described on this website, there are many different options for the wording of sexual orientation questions. Questions generally assess either: 1) sexual orientation identity, 2) sexual behavior, or 3) sexual attraction.
Here we provide both a history of measuring sexual orientations and a set of measures that have been utilized to assess sexual orientation. Many of the measures are included here only for their historical importance and are described in more detail in the history section.
For a set of recommended questions go to the Recommend page on this website.
