Sexual Identity

How someone chooses to describe themselves based on their sexual feelings, attractions, behaviors and desires. Sexual identity can change throughout one’s life. It also does not have to reflect sexual behaviors. For instance, someone can identify as bisexual without ever having sex with men, or you could identify as straight even if you have had  same-sex sexual experiences.
