Diamond, Lisa M.
Developmental Psychology, v34 n5 p1085-95 Sep 1998
Interviewed 16- to 23-year-old non-heterosexual women regarding development of their sexual orientation. Found that a majority failed to report at least one of following: childhood sexual orientation indicators, stability in same-sex attractions, or awareness of same-sex attractions prior to conscious sexual questioning. Lesbians reported greater same-sex attractions than bisexuals. Few reported exclusive same-sex attractions. (Author)
