      Sexuality is a very big question that there aren’t super strong answer on at the moment. There are lots of questions about if it’s genetic, epigenetic, nature or nurture. And currently it’s not clear any more than say why people might like a particular food

      However the current science’s best understanding is that firstly it is inherent, (i.e. It’s not a conscious choice that a person makes) and secondly that it’s fluid to an extent (i.e. your preferences can change over time)
