Researchers concluded that the latest findings suggest that women are never heterosexual.

"Even though the majority of women identify as straight, our research clearly demonstrates that when it comes to what turns them on, they are either bisexual or gay, but never straight," said Rieger, according to The Telegraph.

The findings are published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
