For us, the most important critique is that he still adopted a zero-sum game of sexuality. Surveying Bisexuality in Our Research Researchers desiring to measure sexual orientation have at their disposal a number of imperfect measurement vehicles. This is signiﬁcant because it severely questions the reliability and generalizability of much quantitative research on sexual 38 3 Measuring and Surveying Bisexuality minorities (Savin-Williams 2001b). Simply put, if it is unclear what is being measured, data will be hard to interpret, and ﬁndings will only have so much value.
It moves us from one-dimensional models into a two-dimensional model by accounting for the strength of desire alongside the direction of desire (toward males or females). It also ameliorates the problem of the zero-sum game earlier described, and also allows for a continuum of sexual desire, rather than a discrete categorical scale like Kinsey’s. Participants would be expected to put a mark measuring the strength of their desire for males and females separately, explaining it to them as measuring the heat or intensity of their desire.
Given our sociological approach to our data alongside our concern for interdisciplinary research, we sought to combine two approaches to studying the data. Our main interest was participants’ lived experiences, so we asked them to explain their sexuality, personally, through in-depth interview. We then also asked them to ﬁll out a modiﬁed Klein Grid, to give us an understanding of how they conceived of their sexuality and their sexual desires. We were concerned about the complexity of the Klein Grid, however, particularly related to participants’ ability to distinguish between multiple measures of sexuality (Galupo et al.
