There is no one 'the list'. This isn't really a UX question. It's a psychology/biology/sociology question. –  DA01 Mar 7 at 20:17

But to keep it semi-on topic, Facebook recently came out with their list of sexual orientation options: thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02/15/… –  DA01 Mar 7 at 20:19

I think the usability question is how to best empower your users to describe themselves in a meaningful and useful way. This is a very timely question as evidenced by facebook. Were the question rephrased to represent that, it would be absolutely within scope for this site. –  Charles Wesley Mar 7 at 20:31

Don't list sexual orientations. There are 4 options: Man seeking Woman, Man seeking Man, Woman seeking Man, and Woman seeking Woman. –  Mickael Caruso Mar 8 at 1:01

We have always assumed that there are only 2 types of people: men and women. Which is wrong. Facebook has finally realised it.

Sexual orientation is not much more than 2 lists of "genders" with a 1 to n relation.

Example: Person X may be a transsexual man looking for both bigenders and Cis Females.

This may be an exaggerated example and not suitable for the target audience for your website, but the point I'd like to make: it really not as simple as 4 options (men looking for men - men looking for women - women looking for men - women looking for women)
