Is bisexuality the default human sexual orientation?

As Kinsey described, sexuality is on a 6 point scale. Exclusively heterosexual at one end, exclusively homosexual at the other. But 4 in-between. In this sense only then, bisexuality is more normal than either extreme.

If we go by how many admit to sexual behaviours this will obviously change since most will identify themselves as heterosexual. But if we also ask if they've ever had a homosexual experience, fantasy, looked at and enjoyed homosexual porn, the answer changes significantly. So how many homosexual experiences before identifying as heterosexual doesn't make much sense?

According to this non-scientific poll's results (but with over 50,000 participants,) only about 33% are exclusively heterosexual, 10% exclusively homosexual, and 57% some sort of bisexual.

Are we right to categorize people by sexual orientation ? I prefer to think it's the sexual "situation" that turns me on which can vary in type and even gender. I was at an all boys' boarding school and naturally a lot of sexual activity was indulged in between boys of all and differing ages. In the holidays however, we still had sex with girls, not necessarily more enjoyable than the dorm activities at school. It could be less or more according to the situation and one's partner. We didn't think of ourselves as either homosexual or heterosexual - just "sexual". When the new term started, talking and boasting (with some exaggerations, no doubt) about the girls we'd had in the holiday even spiced up our "gay" activities. No "or..or". Just "and".
