Poll: Only half of young Brits are attracted exclusively to the opposite sex

In a sign that attitudes towards expressing sexuality are shifting, a survey of 18 to 24 year-olds in the UK found just over 50 per cent are ‘only attracted to those of the opposite sex’.

As the age groups got older, the proportion of people who were only attracted to the opposite sex got higher, The Times reports.

Countless celebrities have revealed they are attracted to both sexes in recent years – including model Cara Delevingne, Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart, pop star Miley Cyrus, Will Smith’s daughter Willow and actor Keiynan Lonsdale.

Of those aged between 41 to 54, the survey found 76 per cent were solely attracted to the opposite sex – but 81 per cent of 55 to 75 year olds gave the same answer, the Ipsos Mori poll found.
