I believe most people are bisexual to some degree. I also believe there are more bisexual people than exclusively gay or straight people.

The best advice in that column is that if you try it and don't like it you shouldn't beat yourself up. Then again, it's not as easy for guys to admit to bi-curiosity.

Anyone who is homophobic is either consciously or subconsciously bi-curious.

Once I found myself on the subway surprisingly imagining having sex with a female passenger I saw looking at me...and so naturally I had to beat her senseless.

I think the most interesting thing in the article is when the author admits that bi-sexuality for women is gaining acceptance in this society rather rapidly, but bi-sexual males are still villified.

Are they vilified as much today as 10 years ago? I don't think so. I think the view on male bisexuality is changing too, but not nearly as quickly.

According to Kinsey, men are more likely to be bisexual then women and then men who profess they're "totally straight" are the same men who are too clueless to realize why lesbian porn doesn't really turn them on.

btw, what's this crap in the article about only 6-10% of people throughout history have had same-sex attraction. That's a definite number pulled out of someone's ass.

Yeah that was weird and contrary to one of her main points.

I find that even many gay men fail to think outside the box when it comes to bisexuality. Just the other night I had another gay man who barely knows me tell me that my being bisexual means I don't know what I want. The same ones who say their sexual orientation isn't a choice are basically telling me I need to choose one or the other. The same ignorance and narrow-mindedness they face from people who don't understand them being gay, they turn around and project on bisexuals. I don't think they're "villifying" me, but it sure is condescending when people think they know you better than you know yourself, and try to tell you that you're "confused."

I'm past being "bi-curious." I'm bisexual and just because some people are confused about it, doesn't mean I am.

I must confess that twenty-five years ago that is how I felt about bisexual people.

Alas, education, fact, wisdom, and common sense have taken their toll on me and I now suffer from enlightenment.

YAY ME!

male/male has been happening for ages between humans and animals. just because someone is homophobic does not mean they are bi or gay. it does, in most cases point in that direction, but there are other causes.

people need to just do what they want. a man with a man, a women with a women, or a man with a women affects no one other than the two )or more) that are in the act. let them be. if you do not care for it, don't do it. end of.

I think people start out as bi-curious and just end up whatever sexuality they become.

Bi-Sexual is not to be confused with Bi-Curious.

Bisexual is when you know you are attracted to both sexes.

Bi-Curious is when you are trying to figure out what you are attracted to.

Just experiment and go with what you feel.

Eventually you will know what you want or just take it day by day.

Good luck. <3

I don't believe there is such a thing as bisexual.
Either your gay or straight, period.
I'm gay... I don't pretend to be straight.
Bisexuality to me is just a term for those gays out there pretending to like girls when in fact, theyre not.

Case in point... refer to post #10. Yet another gay man who thinks bisexuality doesn't exist because HE isn't and doesn't understand it. How incredibly ignorant.

But any person who states "It's my fantasy actually to be imprisoned together with 12 dozen guys, each one of them willing to rape me. Man, that would be fun" as CesarUy did, may be just a little F'd up.

Absolutely true. It's like those who say "you can't like both apple pie & pecan pie, it has to be one or the other...."
Hogwash.

Actually, I think it's just the opposite. There are more people attracted to both genders than are willing to admit it.

Your statement makes as much sense as saying, "There are straights (men) out there pretending to like guys."

I don't think so.

It is about the same in the womyn's community. But lesbians will say they would NEVER go out with a bisexual womyn, then tell you some horror story about someone they know who fell in love with a bisexual womyn who then left them for a man. Like them being bisexual could be the only reason they were left and they had no responsibility for it! They were left, why should it matter whether it was for a man or woman?

I enjoy sex with another man from time to time but having a relationship with one such as I do with my wife or had with girlfriends before I got married isn't anything I'd desire. It's strictly sex and one may argue it's glorified masturbation. My relationship with my spouse would quickly fall apart if the only thing that I wanted to do with her was to have sex.
Most of the guys I've been with in the past several years have also been married and they were or are just looking to get their rocks off as I do.
