Likelihood of having sex with the same-sex in Great Britain (GB) in 2015, by gender

This statistic shows the respondents answers after they have been asked if they would have a sexual experience with a person of the same sex. 72 percent of male respondents and 50 percent of female respondents stated that they would "absolutely not" engage in a same-sex sexual experience. Over a quarter of the female respondents stated that it's "very unlikely, but not impossible" that they would engage in such an activity, whereas 17 of males came to the same conclusion.

If the right person came along at the right time, do you think it is conceivable that you could have a sexual experience with a person of the same sex?
