Now Playing Tracks

We got to see a free rehearsal of PNB dancers doing Balanchine’s Jewels tonight. It was in the studio with the audience in chairs around the edges so it was almost like being on stage with them and it was magical. Pretty sure I haven’t been as excited by ballet since the first performance I ever saw like 10 years ago (OBT doing Serenade, of course).

Willingness to Engage in Romantic and Sexual Activities with Bisexual Partners: Gender and Sexual Orientation Differences

Despite knowledge of negative attitudes toward bisexuals, it remains unclear if this extends to people’s willingness to engage in romantic and sexual activities with bisexual partners. The current study examined gender and sexual orientation differences in willingness to date, have sex with, or be in a relationship with bisexual partners. Participants (N = 801) completed an online survey that included a measure of willingness to engage in romantic and sexual activities with same-gender and different-gender bisexual partners. Results indicated that heterosexuals and lesbians/gay men were less willing than bisexuals to engage in romantic/sexual activities with bisexual partners. Additionally, people were generally less willing to be in a relationship with a bisexual partner than they were to have sex with or to date one. Thus, negative attitudes toward bisexuals appear to extend to people’s willingness to engage in romantic/sexual activities with bisexual partners, and such willingness differs as a function of gender and sexual orientation. Efforts are needed to educate people about bisexuality and to dispel myths that contribute to negative attitudes toward bisexuals. Such efforts have the potential to reduce stigma and discrimination toward bisexuals as well as reduce health disparities related to bisexuality.

More details from the paper itself:

…[H]eterosexuals and LGs were less willing than bisexuals to engage in romantic/sexual activities with bisexual partners… The differences in willingness between heterosexuals and bisexuals as well as between LGs and bisexuals were stronger for women than men, suggesting that lesbians and heterosexual women may be more concerned than gay and heterosexual men about bisexual partners. However, the differences were significant for both genders, so we encourage readers to use caution when interpreting this gender difference.

Also consistent with hypotheses, heterosexual women were less willing than lesbians to engage in romantic/sexual activities with bisexual partners, but this was not the case for heterosexual versus gay men…

…[P]eople were generally less willing to be in a relationship with a bisexual partner than they were to have sex with or to date one… Gay and heterosexual men exhibited this pattern, as they were less willing to be in a relationship with a bisexual partner than to have sex with or date a bisexual partner. A slightly different pattern was exhibited by lesbians and heterosexual women, as they were less willing to be in a relationship with a bisexual partner than to date one, but there were not significant differences between their willingness to have sex with a bisexual partner and their willingness to date or be in a relationship with one. Of note, although bisexual exhibited this pattern in regard to their willingness to be with a same-gender bisexual partner, they did not exhibit this pattern in regard to their willingness to be with a different-gender bisexual partner. There were no significant differences among bisexuals’ willingness to have sex with, date, or be in a relationship with a different-gender bisexual partner.
