Bisexuality is the romantic or sexual attraction to males and females. The American Psychological Association states that "sexual orientation falls along a continuum. In other words, someone does not have to be exclusively homosexual or heterosexual, but can feel varying degrees of both. Sexual orientation develops across a person's lifetime–different people realize at different points in their lives that they are heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual." Sexual attraction, behavior and identity may also be incongruent, as sexual attraction or behavior may not necessarily be consistent with identity. Some individuals identify themselves as heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual without having had any sexual experience. Others have had homosexual experiences but do not consider themselves to be gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Likewise, self-identified gay or lesbian individuals may occasionally sexually interact with members of the opposite sex but do not identify as bisexual. The terms queer and polysexual, or heteroflexible and homoflexible, as well as the titles "men who have sex with men" and "women who have sex with women," may also be used.
As for percentages: Some say 60% of men are (http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index … 654AADN7lE)
This suggest about 60% of woman are. (http://shine.yahoo.com/love-sex/study-s … 84654.html)
Maybe not the best sources.
What's your take?
Do you think it's true that 60% of men and women are bisexual? Do you think it's a choice? Do you think some are just bicurious?
I'm just curious what you think about it. Would you be comfortable dating someone bisexual permitting that they're only with you? Does it matter to you if a lover is bisexual or if they are dating other people of the same sex? Any thoughts?
