(Meta) The grand Buffyverse sexuality survey!

12th February 2008 (22:34)
Tags: ,

This came from a suggestion by candleanfeather  , which I've expanded into a fullscale survey on as many Buffyverse characters as I can fit into an LJ poll. :-) The idea is simple enough: rate each person on whether you think that they're gay, straight, or somewhere in between, using the Kinsey Scale

For the purpose of this poll, I'm looking for either what you think is actual canon, or what you think ought to be canon if only the writers had been willing to go there... but not for what even in your most slashfilled dreams you acknowledge could only be crack!fic. Assume also that I'm talking about souled Angel and Spike, since vampire sexuality is an entire other can of worms... 

For reference (if you don't want to click on the link I gave), the Kinsey scale can be summarised as:
0 - entirely straight 1 - mostly straight 2 - fairly straight (or, bi but prefers the opposite sex) 3 - bisexual (prefers both sexes equally) 4 - fairly gay (or bi, prefers same sex) 5 - mostly gay 6 - entirely gay.

Please feel free to expand on your answers in comments. Or criticise me for missing out your favourite character; or tell me that the Kinsey Scale is archaic and discredited or that it's wrong to reduce human sexuality to a series of numbers; whatever... :-)  And for the benefit of the more pedantic among us, I'm also asking for your opinion on their sexual orientation, not sexual experience (which is what the Kinsey Scale was originally devised to measure.)  Also, feel free to pimp this survey vigorously to get as much varied feedback as possible!

ETA: My discussion of the results of this survey is here.

My only criticism is that you should maybe add some other figures of interest particularly ones that crossover into Angel - Wesley, Drusilla, Darla - and that you should have a parallel rating for kink.

I've rated Faith higher on the Kinsey scale than is necessarily the case, partly because I think that the crucial thing with her is that she is a pushy bottom. Darla's bisexuality is partly a dominance thing, come to that, and it shows in her family.

I would have liked to add more characters, but the poll limit was 15. If there's enough interest I might do another poll in a separate post for 'Angel' characters, which could also include Darla and Drusilla.

Thanks for answering!

I think the vampire point is a good one as I would rate Angel and Angelus completely differently. Spike I did as I don't see the difference.

I think the problem you'll have is that it will tend to skew away from actual canon here.

No guesses for how I rated Andrew.

Didn't Andrew want Warren to build him a female sexbot? Granted, he may have just been covering, but he could be a 5 instead of a 6...

Just a couple of quick thoughts:
Buffy: straight - with one exception.

Xander: regular guy, everyman, and thus in the classic "everyman" slot - mostly straight, but not 100%; and something happened between him and Spike in that basement.

Willow: slightly bi, but most of that would be adolescent denial. Post-outing, prefers women 9 times out of 10. (Partly because she's self-conscious enough to keep convincing herself of that.)

Giles: Well, there's Ethan. On the other hand, there's several women. I'd say he's... more aware of his options than most, and might have the experience to back it up, but Ethan is his Faith; it's the person, not the dick.

Cordelia, Joyce and Riley: straight as whistles.

Angel and Spike: will fuck or fall in love with anything, especially when evil, but with a slight preference for the opposite sex (not necessarily just for sexual reasons, mind - they're both alpha males).

Oz: Tricky. I'm not sure Oz has a sexual orientation; he's cool enough that he could fall in love with a guy, shrug and go with it. Based on evidence, though, I'd say he's on the left side. Same with Anya, really, though she'd rationalise it more.

Faith: pretty much bi.

Tara: pretty much gay.

Dawn: see Xander, though possibly slightly more open-minded.

Andrew: pretty much gay, but so deep in the closet he might occasionally forget it.

I think I pretty much agree with your interpretations. Though I'd say that there are two exceptions with Buffy, depending on whether you include the comics. ;-)

Cordelia, Joyce and Riley: straight as whistles
You don't think that Joyce was having a hot lesbian affair with Pat from her book club the summer Buffy ran off to LA?

you sang me spanish lullabies

Just some thoughts on my voting.

Buffy: I had to give her a 1, because she seems like she's almost entirely straight, but her comment in the latest issue and her something of an obsession with Faith lead me to believe she could be in a homosexual relationship if the conditions were right.

Xander: Had to give him a 1 too, because though he appears to be entirely straight, I can't help but feel that he could swing the other way just a little bit.

Willow: A 5. I know some people argue that she's just plain bi, I tend to disagree, simply because I had crushes on boys when I was little (and probably would have gone out with one too, had I been asked), but now I've realized that it's just women for me. Still, I wouldn't label Willow as entirely gay.

Tara: Actually, I'm surprised people have given Tara 4s. I personally gave her a 6, because I never felt like Tara ever gave off a vibe of liking guys even a little bit, nor do I feel it was ever implied.

Spike/Angel/Anya: All 2s. The subtext is there, I think, but I don't think they'd ever act on any urges or feelings towards the same sexes that they might have.

Dawn/Cordelia: Had to give them both 3s. I can't really explain why, I just feel like they would just be bisexual. Again, though, not sure if they would ever pursue anything with the same sex.

Andrew/Faith: 4s for both of them (at least I think so -- now I can't quite remember). I feel like Faith would date guys to feel powerful, but she'd feel more comfortable in a relationship with a female. Andrew seems really, really gay, but I really believe that he goes both ways.

Giles/Joyce/Riley: All 0s. I just don't get a vibe from any of them.

I encourage epic comments. It's what I was hoping for when I posted this. :-)

Your assessment of Willow matches mine (and she reminds me of several people I know in real life, too)... As for Tara, I think her comments on Buffy's date in 'Older And Far Away' ("I mean, I'm not a great judge, but I think he's cute") pretty much confirm her as a 6.

I think Faith is a 4 who believes she's a 2. She enjoys sex with men but only connects emotionally with women. (or parent figures.)

I totally forgot about Pat before voting... now I question this too.

and my questions has let me going to that scary place. Let's get out of there.

Anyways. I think is pretty much safe to say Joss likes his characters to have options. He's so pro slash that I could honestly see most of them with any sex given the right scenerio.

Riley would be the obvious exception because I think no one in their right mind can see him as a sexual anything. And don't give me that look. Buffy went to a mental institution and sleeps with corpses. she's not in any right mind here.

Buffy: Not so you'd notice. But only because I'm hiding it. Here, now let me hold your hand and stare romantically into your eyes by the hospital gurney. Don't ever ask Faith what happened between ditching school and breaking into the sporting good store (long enough for night to fall) -- that doesn't count because my boyfriend was a eunich that year.

Xander: No evidence of even the slightest interest here. Nope.

Willow: Loves Oz. Loves Tara. Enjoys banging Kennedy. Goes all three ways. Will insist she's a lesbian for the cred, but all the real lesbians know she's bi.

Giles: Straight. Ripper? Well, that's another thing.

Cordy: Just a little too uncomfortable with gay-Harmony and just a little too relieved by vamp-Harmony.

Joyce: Likes the boys.

Angel: Likes the boys, too.

Spike: Basically straight, but willing to experiment. Notice the canon inamorata: Halfrek, Angel, Drusilla, Harmony, Buffy, Gothica, Anya, Illyria. Could there be a girlier set? (viz Connor)

Oz: Straight

Faith: Has a lot of experience with boys but doesn't like them much. Hungry and more for Buffy.

Anya: "It did get a little sexy didn't it?" Leans in to kiss Willow. Really likes the Xan-penis. Perfect 3. Perfect in every way, if you ask me. *hearts*

Riley: Pure lesbian.

Tara: Pure lesbian.

Dawn: Probably straight, so far as we know.

Andrew: Pure 100% gay. There's abundant vague data on this question pointing toward gay until the filming by the window. A heterosexual man, with even a tiny, sliver of heterosexuality, would never be able to break his gaze away from the Kennedy/Willow kiss. Girls kissing girls is the one completely mysterious yet infinitely universal hetersexual male fixation.

Huh, I'm surprised how much "straight points" Faith is getting.

As for my own votes, I've never pegged Xander as nothing but completely straight (though it could be just because of my hate towards the homophobic = secretly gay idea). As for the vampires, I've always thought that Angel(us) would swing both ways, but Liam was completely straight, while Spike was more or less straight but William was a bit bent ;)

Also, you might be interested in this multifandom poll did a few years ago.

Posted at: 13th February 2008 10:26 (UTC)

As one who voted that way maybe I can clarify my thinking if that would help.:-)

I'm going by canon here as every single sexual interaction she has is with Men. Everyone of her stories from the gator, to the schoolgirl & whips and the fact that she only ever talks about guys form part of this canon evidence.

I think its a given that Faith isn't bashful about telling about her sexual escapades therefore imho the fact that she doesn't mention a single woman amongst them is telling.

Of course people are right that she has a low opinion of men but then I think that is a twisted self esteem issue and is what provokes her reaction to Xander.

On top of that we have two statements from the characters mouth herself if you count S8 as canon (I don't) where she says she doesn't swing that way, or we have her driving stick statement. Which imho stake it for now. Of course Joss may pull a Willow but the interaction with Giles makes that unlikely.

The only person she hits on when out of prison in S4 Angel/S7 Buffy, Gunn & Robin. Whereas we have some obvious flirtation between Willow & Fred.

I think the bi thing which doesn't quite surprise me as much stems from the Buffy obsession and the oft misread heart/stake window thing. I read that just as a straight forward envy/jealousy obsession she wants Buffy's life not Buffy, although Faith's mental state makes it more complex than that. Therefore extrapolating BI from there is logical even though I don't agree with it compared with the weight of evidence in the other direction.

On Xander I agree as well. How many gorgeous women does a man have to sleep with, lust after, dream about to be classified as straight. I put him as a 1 because of his reaction to Andrew's Bakula quote.

Willow is the one I had most difficulty with canon says she's gay, with a sledgehammer subtley at times but given her love of OZ I never quite rings true. Plus we have the flirtation with Wesley (an unfortunate outgrowth of the actors reallife relationship) which complicates matters.

Interesting to see how much debate there's on some characters, not so much on the general orientation, but on the precise position of the side.

As for my vote, I went with the "how I see the actual canon" road. For Xander 0, because, for me, all the allusions in his case were played for fun ( mostly a wink to the slashers)and never led to any consistent development. O for Joyce, Cordelia, Riley and Dawn (at least until now) too. A 1 for Buffy (due to recent developments), Giles (because of Ethan, who had he been on your poll, would probably have been rated 4). Oz, no idea, probably a 1 but I didn't rate him. A 2 for Angel, Spike and Faith. It's hard to decide for the 2 menpire between 1 and 2, but if bisexuality is a trait from their human personality, (however repressed it was in their time as human beings), there's no reason to believe it has been erased in their vampire selves, soul or no soul. Faith is indeniably attracted by women or at least Buffy, but her only relations known are male. A 3 for Anya,a 4 for Willow (she has a preference for female relationships but I can see her going back to Oz in certain circonstances), a 5 for Andrew (he has some fantasies about women, but it could be only denial. :) ), and a 6 for Tara.

Cuddles Tara-Dawn

Came over here by way of beer_good_foamy ...

It looks like I'm right on with most people on most of these ... I put Dawn down as mostly straight, but in retrospect she was still a bit too young to know herself.

I'm not convinced Andrew is as gay as everyone else thinks he is ... in fact, I wonder if, like Dawn, he simply hasn't matured enough to even reach that point. Although passing right by two women making out and not noticing is a big clue!

The one I disagree with the most is Tara. Although she might have issues with men, having come from such a sterling family, I've always pictured her as a person who could love anyone, regardless of their sex or any other external difference. I think Tara could have been just as capable of falling for Xander as for Willow; and Willow's probably the same way.

I think Tara could have been just as capable of falling for Xander as for Willow; and Willow's probably the same way.

And yet every time the subject of men comes up, Tara makes it pretty clear that she's not interested. She even seems slightly amused that anyone would think she might be.

TARA: You thought Dracula was sexy?

ANYA: How 'bout you, ever play Shiver Me Timbers?
TARA: I'm not really much for the timber.


TARA: I don't know. He seemed ... cute. W-was he cute? I mean, I'm not a very good judge, but... I think he seemed cute.

And then you have the only vaguely metaphorical conversations with her family in "Family", her row with Willow in "Tough Love", etc... I'm all for reading subtext, and being a matriarch-type person she's definitely full of love for others, but as far as I can see there's not even the slightest hint in canon that Tara was ever romantically/sexually interested in anything but women.

Apart from everything everyone's said up till now:

The person that gave me most trobule was Oz. I mean... he could be anything. He's just Oz, and that an entirely new quality.

On the down side: I really need to ask some of mine American friends to buy me all Season 8 comics and send down here to Japan. I'm feeling left out *goes away with her head down*

Lock Oz in a bedroom with either a gorgeous, pouting voluptuous temptress or a bronzed oiled-up hunk or a weird shapeshifting entity of indeterminatate gender, and his reaction in all three cases would probably be "Huh.".

Straight - Buffy, Cordelia, Xander, Joyce,
Angel (any unsoulled vampire probably bi in that they'll use sex as a weapon against either gender), Spike, Oz, Riley, Dawn, Wesley, Gunn, Fred

Bi - Willow, Giles (I'm saying that maybe he and Ethan experimented in the 70s), Faith (at the least shell have experimented, although she only rode stick in the show), Anya (given her fetish love, I expect experimentation in her past),

Gay - Tara, Kennedy, Andrew

Oops I hit the wrong key att he wrong moment!

Methinks this tells much more about the fans than about the characters...

I really can't answer it because the scale is just frustrating. Also I don't think it's relevant to separate orientation and experience. Think of season 7 Dawn who's basically the same age as Willow was in season 1.

Sexuality is complicated and mostly depends on age and society. Of course it's easier to think that we have one sexual identity caused by orientation, but identity is nothing but what we believe we are plus what we want others to believe we are.

Season 1 Willow didn't seem sexually interested in girls at all.

The oldest characters (Angel and Spike)were rule breakers, being vampires, and had enough experience to be open about everything when it comes to sexuality. So is Anya for about the same reason.

When you have lived hundreds years, there's probably very few things you hadn't tried.

The other characters are still very young. So who knows? Buffy seemed to be into males only but she might try girls some day and have an epiphany about lesbian sex. Tastes change.

I used to drink ony white wine, then I drank white and red...and nowadays I'm sticking to red.

From what I've seen, Giles is the only character for whom I could tell that he's rather heterosexual but wouldn't mind bisexuality and could enjoy homosexual intercourses (but with Ethan only ! ;- )).

As for Andrew, I saw him as rather a-sexual actually.

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 13th February 2008 14:13 (UTC)

I don't think it's relevant to separate orientation and experience.

I'm genuinely undecided as to whether orientation is a fixed thing, but people can emphasise certain parts of it and suppress others either through choice or social conditioning, or whether it actually can change over time. (If you forced me to choose, I'd say the first. Experience and new environments can show people a part of themselves they'd previously ignored.)

The problem with including experience in a scale like this - as Kinsey himself did originally - is that Willow would be an X until 'Graduation Day' when she becomes a 0. She'll remain a 0 until either 'The I in Team' or 'New Moon Rising' depending on which episode you think she first sleeps with Tara, when she becomes a 1. At some time late in season 4 she become a 2, and at the point where her relationship with Tara has lasted as long as her sexual relationship with Oz did, she becomes a 3. After that she progresses steadily through 4 to 5... but she can never become a 6 because of that period spent with Oz. I'm not sure that sort of rating system would be meaningful for this sort of discussion...

I used to drink ony white wine, then I drank white and red...and nowadays I'm sticking to red

I cleverly forestalled any criticism by anticipating it. :-) (Though personally, I think categorisation is fine as long as you remember it's supposed to be descriptive and not prescriptive.)

It's curious that only 1/3 of the characters have more than 50% of people agreeing on the same rating - Buffy, Riley, Joyce, Tara and Cordelia being the ones most people are sure about.

Fun poll! Instead of leaving the Longest Comment Ever, I wrote a post about how I voted and why.

0 and 6 were out for me, as I firmly believe that everyone can recognise beauty where ever we see it. Acting on it is another thing. Therefore we can be attracted to either sex, but maybe not enough to have sex.

Was going to leave it there, but I suspect that demons would use any means to attract prey. Therefore Angel, Spike and Anya would, at some point in their long life, have indulged with both sexs

Comic Spangel

Buffy-Mainly straight but bi-curious though in denial about the Faith thing I think.

Xander-Mostly straight but I see him fighting off the urge to explore.

Willow-Prefers women now though I see her as liking men too. She did love Oz and was heartbroken when he left the first time.

Giles-Mainly sees women but would not mind so much being with another man. There is no way I can see him not having been with Ethan.

Riley, Dawn, Joyce, Cordelia- Straight. Never got that vibe from any of them.

Angel/Spike-I think that they mainly see women now though they are fine with men. Like Giles/Ethan there is no way I'm buying that they were never together that way.

Oz-Hard to say though I said straight. He might not make a big thing about it, I just get that he likes women.

Anya-Men though she might try it out with a woman.

Faith-Bi, though it depends who she likes which lately (expect for Buffy) happens to be men. Lots of subtext of what she/Lilah thought the other meant.

Andrew, Tara-Gay. Never saw Tara have the slightest interest outside her joke in OMWF about being "cured." Andrew I see as really in the closet.
