Abstract:
Research on bisexuality has been relatively nonexistent. In the recent past bisexuality has been viewed as pathological or as a means of denying either homosexuality or heterosexuality. Sexuality is looked at and studied as a dichotomy, polarizing the sexual experience as either "gay" or "straight". Where is the gray area accounted for in this continuum? In this study, 16 female respondents completed questions pertaining to sexual behavior, fantasy and emotional experience. They were also given the Bem Sex Role Inventory to ascertain the relationship between gender identity and sexual orientation. Other issues addressed concerned demographics, AIDS, counseling, and self-esteem.
