The update for sexual orientation in The Sims 4

The update will include three new sections to fill out in the Create a Sim mode. The three new identity checks are...

• This Sim is romantically attracted to... – with 'Men' and 'Women' as checkbox options (one, both, or none can be selected).

• This Sim is exploring romantically – with 'Yes' and 'No' as radio options.

• This Sim is interested in Mess Around with... – with 'Men' and 'Women' as checkbox options (one, both, or none can be selected).

However, this new addition does not mean that there aren't options to do this already. In Sims 4 right now, Sims can flirt with anyone, regardless of their identity.

This will be released alongside the High School Years Expansion Pack. And as we all know, a huge part of high school is finding out information about yourself. This is why the Exploring option is brilliant for those Sims who are finding their own identity. Additionally, this also brings a sense of realism.
