[...] - persons disinclined to sexual behavior with members of the opposite sex have been at a considerable reproductive disadvantage.

This is based on some unmentioned assumptions and also unnecessary to the article in general. --Robbe

I disagree on both counts but not strongly enough to fight about it. However, I am including the complete text here for context:
"Heterosexuality is romantic or sexual desire for, or sexual activities with, persons of the opposite sex. It is overwhelmingly the most common sexual preference or orientation.
This is not surprising when we consider that heterosexual behavior (coitus) is responsible for the reproduction of human beings - persons disinclined to sexual behavior with members of the opposite sex have been at a considerable reproductive disadvantage."



Surely there's *someone* more recent than Kinsey to refer to? --MichaelTinkler

Yes, surely, but I don't know them so I wrote about what I know. Kinsey should still be referenced as the researcher who first explored the subject, though. Probably any extended discussion of sexual orientation belongs there. --Dmerrill



"These studies have been discredited, because they relied on prison inmates, hardly a representative sample of the general population."

Ok. Let's see the ref. :-)
