Bisexuality is the possibility of having a sexual interest in people of both sexes and having an emotional or sexual relationship with them. A bisexual person may not be equally interested in both genders, and the level of that interest may change over time.

Self-perception Self-perception] is the key to bisexual identity. Many people engage in sexual activity with people of both sexes, but do not identify as bisexual. Similarly, some other people only have sex or do not have sex, but still identify themselves as bisexual. There is no “behavior test” to determine if a person is bisexual.

Bisexual identity

Some people believe that a person was born heterosexual, gay or bisexual (for example, due to prenatal hormonal effects) and that their identity is intrinsic and immutable. Others believe that sexual orientation is the result of socialization (for example, imitation or rejection of the father and father models) or of a conscious choice (for example, the choice of lesbianism as element of feminist political identity). Others believe that these factors influence each other. The biological, social and cultural factors being different for each person, they are bisexual, gay or lesbian, heterosexual or genderless. asexual] everyone’s sexuality is very personal. The “value” assigned to sexual identity is not based on its [sexual] origin. Many people see bisexuality as a phase that people are going through. In reality, any sexual orientation can be a scenario. People are different, individual sexual feelings and behaviors can change over time. The formation and consolidation of gender identity is an ongoing process. Bisexuality is a phase in which many people realize their homosexuality when we are generally socialized as heterosexual. Many others have identified themselves as bisexual after a fairly long process of identifying gay or lesbian men. A Ron Fox study of over 900 bisexual people found that 1 in 3 people had already been identified as lesbian or gay. A dotted line may still be valid for the entire period. It may be a temporary step in the process of sexual discovery, such as bisexuality, homosexuality and heterosexuality, or it may be a long-term stable identity.

Is bisexuality common?

It is not easy to say how widespread bisexuality is, as only a few studies have been done on the subject. Most studies of sexuality have focused on heterosexuality or homosexuality. Kinsey’s research in the 1940s and 1950s showed that, depending on sexual activity and interests, 15 to 25% of women and 33 to 46% of men can be bisexual. In many ways, bisexuals are hidden in their populations. In our culture, it is often assumed that someone (by default) is heterosexual or (depending on their appearance or behavioral characteristics) homosexual. Since bisexuality does not fall into these standard categories, it is often rejected or ignored. If accepted, it is considered a “heterosexual and partial homosexual” identity and not a single identity. Bisexuality threatens the vision of the world because it raises the question of the validity of strict sexual categories and promotes acceptance of the existence of different sexual domains. Since there is no stereotypical bisexual behavior or behavior, it is generally believed that bisexuals are heterosexual or homosexual. To raise awareness, bisexuals have started to form their own visible community.

Bisexual relationships

Bisexuals, like other people, have a variety of styles of relationships. Contrary to popular belief, a bisexual person does not need to be sexually involved with a man and a woman at the same time. In fact, some people identified as bisexual have never had sex with that sex or another (or both). When it comes to heterosexuals, gays and lesbians, [sexual] attraction doesn’t always have to be treated if it wants to. Like bisexuals and homosexuals, many bisexuals can choose to be sexually active with one partner. You can have long-term monogamous relationships. Other bisexuals may have free marriages that allow same-sex couples, tripartite relationships or multiple same-sex relationships (identical or simultaneous) of the same or different sex.
