  • About the Edition

    Despite the considerable body of research on differences in experiences of love, sexual orientation and gender status have not received attention. The purpose of this study was to determine if there are differences in Lee"s (1974) love styles, relationship satisfaction and approaches to sexual relationships in terms of gender and sexual orientation. Results suggest that although gender played a role in some of the differences in the dependent variables, specifically Ludus and Agape, sexual orientation had a much larger role to play, significantly relating to differences in Eros, Ludus, Storge, Pragma, Agape and relationship satisfaction. Group comparisons revealed heterosexuals were more pragmatic, gay/lesbians were less storgic, bisexuals were more ludic, and transsexuals were more agapic. Lesbians fared well in terms of their Agape love styles, scoring higher than heterosexual women and bisexual women, scoring similarly to female to male transsexuals, however male to female transsexuals scored significantly higher.
