Grindr users are not that gay, at least according to a new survey.

More than 300 users on the gay dating app, contacted by Pink News as part of an informal study, did not identifying as exclusively attracted to men.

The study used the Kinsey scale, based on the work of sexologist Alfred Kinsey, which ranges from 0 (exclusively straight) to 6 (exclusively gay) and also allows identification as asexual (X).

Pink News found that the average answer was around five, with the most frequent answer being five, followed by six and then four when they contacted users from their office in central London.

The informal survey follows a YouGov poll released last week that found more than half of young people do not identify as solely heterosexual or homosexual, but instead view their sexuality as far more fluid.

YouGov found that when British people were asked to plot their location on a “sexuality scale” 49 per cent of participants aged between 18 and 24 chose something other than 100 per cent heterosexual.
