A recent survey from the U.K. found that 49 percent of Brits between the ages of 18-24 identify as something other than “100 percent heterosexual” when asked to plot themselves on Alfred Kinsey’s sexuality scale. A similar survey in the U.S. found that 78 percent of Americans identified as heterosexual, but only 4 percent of that 78 percent said they were “100 percent heterosexual.” Now, Israel is the latest country to jump on the bisexual bandwagon.
The Israeli website Mako teamed up with the Pannels Institute to conduct a study in which they asked 600 non-religious Israeli Jews over the age of 18 about their sexual preferences, and the results may delight you.
Researchers found that 67 percent of respondents considered themselves to be heterosexual, but only 3 percent of that 67 percent said they were “100 percent homosexual.” The remaining 30 percent said they were somewhere in-between straight and gay.
So what does all this mean exactly? Aside from the fact that more and more people around the world are embracing their sexual fluidity, it also means we’ve found our next vacation destination.
Tel Aviv, here we come!
