"If one were to try to place Joan Crawford on Kinsey's Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale (where 0 is exclusively heterosexual and 6 is exclusively homosexual), she would probably rate about a 2 ("predominantely heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual"). At this time, lesbian experimentation was sometimes seen as just a way of expressing freedom and lack of inhibition. 'At least you can't get pregnant,' Joan joked many years later, when the subject of lesbianism somehow came up at a luncheon."
-Excerpt from Joan Crawford The Essential Biography By Lawrence J. Quirk and William Schoell
