I have always wondered did they ever take a survey on people who are bisexuals if they spend more time or have affairs more with straight or gay people. I am straight which is besides the point, but it seems like something the media don't seem to cover much of.Has this change over the decades as society has become more open to all type of lifestyles. My own personal experiences of bisexuals seem to be 50/50. Any thoughts on this issue?

Well without a big study you'd have to depend on the preferences of the people involved. I'm sure there are some who are 50/50. I don't know that I could really put a number to myself. Maybe 60% male 40% female attraction if I had to. This is one area where science isn't likely to come up with a good answer anytime soon.

In Hollywood it was common of course for bisexual men years ago to often get married to woman as a image thing in many cases. It would seem that if they were truly gay one would wonder why would they bother having a relationship with a woman. Today of course things would be a lot different. But bisexuality opens up another issue, I knew a girl who went both ways years ago with some apprehension but now in recent years has decided to marry a woman a few months ago. She says she really finds more comfort with women then men although years ago, she did feel for a few men and had relationships with them. I ask her does this have anything to do with the societies change. She said it might have. Meanwhile I knew a guy years ago who said he had desires for both sexes but do to the time in history. he pretty much stuck with the ladies. he since has switch with the men in recent history. one might think that one would just go with what they want, but life does not work that way. W e often will do what we don't really want and live out our miserable lives because of it. due to obligations, fear, insecurity etc etc. I remember a guy who told me he was asexual yet he had been marry to a woman for over 30 years. This was I am sure very common with many women years ago. But it is the bisexual stories that have so many different twists to them. I went out with a girl for a year , years ago who said, she really does not know what she wants in that department. I knew she did have an affair with a girl years before. I was semi surprised when I found out, I say semi because, sometimes people really don't know what they want. Conformity is such a dominant force in life.Sad but oh so true.

Then there was a cousin of mine who married a lady. He went to VIETNAM , when he came back he found his wife in bed with another woman.Naturally at the time he didn't go into the gory details of the event, they got a divorce. But from what I heard from my aunt. Her son was shocked, because they seemed to have a good sexual relationship, but it appeared she got more thrills from the ladies. So it appeared she was bisexual, who went the gay route.

Three-ways, obviously, so they can have one of each at the same time.

Yes, the wording of the title can be tricky, but I am sure your getting the drift.

As Sirusjr has said, "without a big study you'd have to depend on the preferences of the people involved." Perhaps you are doing your own personal poll here, dan the man?
I believe that every individual encounters different circumstances and relationships in their lives that would make any potential poll absolutely impossible to devise.
There are far too many variables involved.

Same-sex relationships would theoretically cap the population when it gets to be a certain size. Just like with heavy elements, the protons and electrons get padded out with neutrons when the atom approaches critical mass. So we're talking complex equilibria here that may contain more variables than meet the eye.

My question, should bisexuals be able to marry both a man and woman at the same time?

I am straight which is besides the point, but it seems like something the media don't seem to cover much of.Has this change over the decades as society has become more open to alternated lifestyles. My own personal experiences of bisexuals seem to be 50/50. Any thoughts on this issue?

I find it curious you added, "have more affairs with", opposed to "have more relationships with". Also maybe one day we can drop the "alternative lifestyle" line. We don't peg ppl with alternative lifestyle if they prefer Pizza Hut over McDonalds.

TO SOLIUM- Check the top thread now, better wording?

The whole thing concerning sexuality in my view is that it is not so "black and white" per se. That is, either like one or the other, or 50/50 equal. From what I've read and studies that have been conducted, being sexually attracted to both sexes, no matter how skewed towards one against the other, is much more pervasive than anyone in the general public wants to admit.

More and more people are being comfortable in allowing themselves to be with both it seems, though generally speaking, is still taboo. Yet men like Cole Porter had both...was in love with his "wife" yet was with a lot of men too. Hollywood is filled with stories like that.

As a gay man I do prefer one over the other obviously. However, I find Asian woman extremely attractive and would have no qualm in being with one, if the opportunity ever presented itself. Grace Park from "Battlestar Galactica" and "Hawaii Five-O" is a prime example. What a hottie! Fantasy not withstanding, would I marry her and have a deep relationship? Quite possibly. I can conceive of it. And would I remain true to her, faithful in all things? If I fell in love with her, you bet. Doesn't mean I would have fantasies about some hot dude, but in a committed relationship, I would "shut it down" as it were.

Yet many gay men seem to have a problem with bisexuality. Many view it as a cop out, that they are really "denying" their true, homosexual leanings. Possibly for some that is true. Some may feel that it is better to at least have some straight leanings than none, may make them seem more of a man as it where. But I feel the vast majority are truly that, bisexual men/women.

I think categorizing human sexuality in halves or quarters or in wholes is basically ridiculous. You are what you are. Human, an individual. No one is like you and never will there be another. Be who you are, life your life, love someone and be loved. And count yourself lucky that you did.

Who gives a shit about other peoples sexuality? Do you sit around thinking about it? Really? Maybe it's time to lock this stupid thread.

I agree!

Whether a bisexual woman spends 75% with women and 25% with men (or any other combination) or how much a bisexual man spends with either is so ridiculous.

I suggest that dan do a Google search and find people who care about such bullshit.

Anyone who wonders about such things is obviously wondering more about himself, and his own sexual identity.

Otherwise, were he secure, why would he even care about such a subject?

I am all for non-film score discussion but this is tasteless.

For you Seinfeld fans there's a funny gag where George asks his Ex-Girlfriend, whom broke up with him to date another women, who leads in a dance. Her reply was, "Your an idiot!" LOL

.....BISEXUALS, WHICH DO THEY PREFER?.....


I believe they prefer Bi-peds of either gender, Bi-carbonate of soda for their upset tummies,
Bi-monthly magazine publications, Bi-tuminous coal for heating.....and they often have Bi-yers remorse about some of their pricier purchases.

smile


Some joking aside.....my partner was once married (and has a BEAUTIFUL daughter), so I guess I could ask him. But he and I are now married and celebrate our 32nd Anniversary together just this month, so I guess the answer is, "He prefers me!".....
