The Storms Sexuality Axis is a sexuality scale developed by Michael Storms, a psychologist at the University of Kansas. Storms had been studying sexuality and erotic fantasies and he felt as if there were conceptual problems with the Kinsey Scale. He found that bisexuals engaged in as much heterosexual fantasizing as heterosexuals and as much homosexual fantasizing as their lesbian and gay counterparts. He ascertained from this that bisexuality seemed to somehow incorporate total heterosexuality and total homosexuality in a way not indicated by the Kinsey Scale. Storms also wanted to distinguish between bisexuality and asexuality. In 1980, he proposed a new sexuality scale using an x-y axis. The Sexuality Axis has been criticised for implying that asexuality is a 'negative' option, and completely separate from other sexualities.
