I just want to know

Unread post by jenny01 »

Hi! So just to let you know I am straight and I hope I don't offend anyone with this post.
So my parents are super protective about the outside world so I don't really know a whole lot about the different kinds of sexuality. I was just wondering if someone could explain them all to me and what they are? Like I know gays and lesbians but there are so many different ones that I don't fully understand. Thanks!

Hi Jenny01,

Our website is chalk FULL of awesome resources on this topic. I'm gonna link you to a few of them but I'd encourage you to look at the "sexuality" tag or the "lgbtq" tag. Another thing I suggest you check out is our Glossary! It's extremely extensive and a great way to find out what you don't know. These links are a great place to start but I encourage you to keep looking and reading. There's so much awesome info on here!

Links:
The Rainbow Connection: Orientation for Everyone
Sexuality: WTF Is It, Anyway?
S.E.X.: The Scarleteen Book!
Q is for Questioning
What's Sex?

Hope this helps,
Val
