    Post edited (5/31/13) See below. As promised, here is my post on this fascinating, and rather mysterious topic. Who doesn't love bisexual women? Before my foray into the HBD world, I thought that that was a trick question. In any case, I'm certainly quite fond of them. :) But bisexuality, or for that matter lesbianism—like...

    I am a 57 year old male raised in a very permissive California home. I am not at all concerned with sexual orientation; nor do I take exception to anyone's sexual preferences. Indeed, as a younger man, I was involved in swinging with couples seeking a threesome. However, I take exception to absolute statements such as your above assertion that men who claim not to be aroused by bisexual women are lying. I have absolutely no interest in seeing two women have sex together and intentionally chose a woman as a wife who is heterosexual, Your assertion reminds me of the often quoted claim that there are no bisexual men, but only gay males who lie about their orientation.

    I was being facetious there Rob.

    Much more women nowadays are gay and bi, and many women love sleeping around with so many men and other women today more than ever.

    Various self-report data seem to indicate that. The reasons why are unknown.

    From my perspective, a young 23 year old, attractive married girl, it is about love, the feeling of being close, sexual fulfillment, and relationship. I don't want my husband and my girlfriend to have sexual relations with each other because I will get very jealous from both sides. My first sexual experiences were with a girl. I have always been sexually attracted to both girls and guys. I married my husband because he is the best man in the world and I want him to be mine. He is the best lover, provider, companion, and housekeeper. I love my girlfriend because she is the best female lover, female companion, she understands me like a man can't, and she is my best friend.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)

    I’ve heard that before from other women. But that seems to take the fun right out of the whole thing…

    I am 33 and a bisexual woman. I was attracted to women as a toddler and have a high sex drive. In the past I have lived with both boyfriends and girlfriends. I prefer women to men (slightly). It may be that more women settle with men for procreational reasons, but also because it's more socially acceptable.

    I think there are a vast range of types of bisexual women, whether I would personally class them all as bi is debatable. One example is that I've seen many apparently 'bi women' on sex sites, who sleep with women only if a man is present, or specifically to satisfy a male.

    Thanks for the information.

    Fascinating discussioin–just found you when researching the subject of “genetic basis for bi-sexuality”. I’d love to know your opinion on the evolutionary predisposition for various sexuals identities versus the impact that the sexual revolution of the past few decades has on the sexual behaviors of people now, a time when people feel freer to do sexual experimentation. I am a 68 year old veteran of the sexual/social revolutions since the 60′s and continue to both promote sexual freedom in our culture and identify as bi-sexual female. I confess my information is more antidotal but I am a licensed social worker as per trained observer. I am well read on female sexuality as well. What I would like to add to the discussion on an upsurge in female bisexuality is the angle of “Try it–You’ll like it!!” One of the best forms of sexual pleasure for women is cunilingus. When sex do you thing is bettter at giving that form of pleasure to a woman–men or women?? I think there are mutiple reasons to generally judge women as being better at giving that pleasure to another woman–primarily, a woman instinctively understands what is sexually pleasant to another woman’s genitalia than a man does. Second, I think that men are still way to sqeamish (or whatever) at doing cunilingus for a woman. Also some seem to think that it diminshes their masculinity to do so. I do recall seeing a study that showed that women give and men receive much more oral sex than the other way around. So–given the greater freedom to try woman with woman sex, I believe that a significant number of women are finding out how delightful such sex is. And isn’t simply finding pleasure an evolutionary factor?

    You say the purpose of sex is reproduction as if there are no other reasons for sex. That is not factual. We are very closely related to the bonobos; considering their sexuality might re-balance your thoughts on the subject. In the same vein, if sex were only for reproduction, why are women so libidinous on their periods and when pregnant? Sex has many purposes and assuming that just because a woman has children and passes on her genes means that she only has sex for reproductive purposes is silly.

    The key problem with most commenters on these matters is that most lack a decent understanding of evolutionary theory. The primary goal of all life is reproduction. In humans, sex appears to play a social bonding function, so that explains non-reproductive sex. But let’s think through what you’re saying:

    I’m saying that the fewer children a woman has, the more likely she is to survive and help her children survive, and that’s why bisexuality would be selected. Sleeping with women is a form of birth control.

    They why:

    1. Do bisexual women have higher sex drives that straight women?
    2. Are bisexual women primarily attracted to men?
    3. Are they more orgasmic and apparently have more heterosexual sex than their straight counterparts?
    4. Aren’t all women bisexual?
    5. Does female same sex attraction have such a low heritability?

    Hopefully you see the problem.

    You are only focusing on the men's contributions to evolution when you are talking about women's sexuality! Wake up! First, did it occur to you that bisexual women might be the descendants of lesbians? Or the common theory that having childless gay aunts greatly increases a child's chance of survival? And you seem not to be able to separate our culture from our biology. Almost all of human biological evolution was complete before written history. Before tools and weapons, the women chose the men - and not to marry, but to mate with. Men were not picking women based on what arouses them. Biologically, women are the choosy ones about who to mate with because we can only have so many children. Men are more likely to sleep with a random person, and that fact gave women the power in human evolution. Probably women are bisexual so they won't risk pregnancy, which for most of human life has been a dire ordeal.

    You need to be brought up to speed on quite a bit. I suggest either my “About Me” page on the right or my Race, Inheritance, and IQ FRB, also at right

    Wake up! First, did it occur to you that bisexual women might be the descendants of lesbians?

    No, because, by and large, that’s not much of a good explanation. Lesbians are rare, far rarer than bisexual women. And even lesbians themselves appear to be hard to explain, so that wouldn’t be adding anything.

    As well, what we seek to explain is the prevalence of female same sex attraction, which in some cases has been claimed to be as high as 20%. You don’t get to that high level of prevalence without either some selective advantage, or at least a side-effect of one.

    Or the common theory that having childless gay aunts greatly increases a child’s chance of survival?

    Didn’t even consider it – because that is plain old nonsense. See my post on Greg Cochran’s Gay Germ theory for some explanation of why anything along the “gay uncle” hypothesis cannot work.

    And you seem not to be able to separate our culture from our biology

    That’s why women have secondard sex characteristics

    Probably women are bisexual so they won’t risk pregnancy, which for most of human life has been a dire ordeal.

    Since the purpose of sex is reproduction, why would that trait have been selected for?

  • In short, the lesbianism in female bisexuality is like breast development in men due to hormonal imbalance. Possible.

    It could also be a side effect of sexual empathy. It might be quite useful for a female to be able to ‘read’ a mans sexual mind, to know what arouses him instinctively because she can look at a woman herself with desire.

    Consider that most bisexual women, despite maintaining SSA throughout life, tend to ultimately end up with men. And, of course, let’s not forget to consider that most men (those who don’t lie) are massively aroused by girl-girl sex (myself included), as the enormous popularity of lesbian porn attests. Perhaps then female bisexuality is so common because it serves some function. Perhaps the fact that men like (love) it is a clue.

    Meh.
    How long have most men been aroused by girl on girl sex ? I know that I don't mind it at all but I attribute that to me being a 30 something north-american male with a more than average interest and exposure to the fringe and the marginal.
    I can't imagine my dad (black caribbean) being into it at all.

    Determining the situation with human sexuality is difficult because it’s hard to get people to answer honestly (as you know) and even if you can directly observe behavior, it’s hard to do so with a sample that’s truly representative of the general population.

    I'm very surprised the author is so cut and dry about MALE sexuality in this post. I quickly noticed that he was focusing more on straight vs gay, and implying it was that black and white, instead of looking at data around male bi-sexuality as well.

    I think this boils down to one thing: The social stigma of a female being bisexual is MUCH lower than that of a male. As the author pointed out, most "straight" males love it (and I'm guesings most closeted bi-men as well). Because of our "that's gay" culture (which is almost always implying male homosexuality), at least in the USA, men are insanely less likely to identify as bisexual publically, and sometimes even privately.

    Take a look at casual encounters on Craigslist. The m4m sections are the most popular of the category, bar none, and almost everyone posting is a "straight male" looking to hook up with a guy! That, by definition, makes them bisexual.

    There is a second stigma around male bi-sexuality as well, which is that it "might mean I'm gay". The difference is there is actually a large divide between bi-sexuals of both sexes: Those that simply find hooking up with the same sex pleasurable and/or a turn-on, and those who have the capacity to "love" or have a relationship with the same sex.

    So, from my perspective, there may be just as many, if not more, bi-sexual men than women.

    you are saying that the humans are the exception to the rule that in all species the males are more beautiful, which isn't true.
    You say that women have longer hair so they are more beautiful. Women have longer hair because of genetics or because society taught us that women should have long hair and men short hair.
    Well I had very long hair for many years (I was a rocker type lol).
    All through history, artists preferred the male body over the female body because they thought that it was more of a challenge and more attractive than the female body!
    Check out the statues from ancient Greece and Rome and Renaissance. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/63/Michelangelos_David.jpg

    What happened in the last 50 years was the rise of Playboy and such magazines that eroticized the female body and society learned to appreciate the female form and ignore the male body.

    There is no exception. The males are more attractive than the females in all species, including humans but society taught us NOW DAYS that women should be more beautiful and wear make up and stuff like that. It's socially learned.
    Compare a woman WITHOUT make up, and without fake boobs to Brad Pitt in Fight Club (no homo).
    That's why women use make up to appear more beautiful than they really are. It's fake.
    But male peacock's etc. attractiveness isn't fake, it's natural. The same goes for men, but men are too lazy and grow beer bellies and stay out of shape because they were taught that men do NOT have to look good.

    you are saying that the humans are the exception to the rule that in all species the males are more beautiful, which isn’t true.

    It is. I’m not going to argue over the color of the sky, Peter.

    You say that women have longer hair so they are more beautiful. Women have longer hair because of genetics or because society taught us that women should have long hair and men short hair.

    Where do the things society “teaches” us come from?

    This points out that the way we view the human body is socially constructed.

    http://gotopless.org/timeline

    Sure it is, Peter. See here and here. Many features of human attractiveness are universal across the species.

    You wrote:
    “Since sex drive peaks in young adulthood, SSA among women is likely to be highest at this point, but would slowly tend to subside with age, leaving sexual attraction to men as the primary influence.”

    But it seems to be the other way round

    it’s all social constructed. Unless we believe that there are some countries where men are more gay because of the water or whatever, whereas in other countries they have better water and so they are less gay.

    Men around the world aren’t genetically identical, nor are the exposed to the same pathogens. That’s the whole point of this blog.

    In Japan, gay male romance fiction is very popular among women, and it’s getting popular in other countries too. It’s social constructed.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaoi#Primary_market

    “Popular” is a strong word. In Japan, in the mid 1990s, the fanbase for yaoi was estimated to be at most 500,000 individuals. Let’s assume that that’s accurate, and let’s generously assume 80% of those are female. So that’s 400,000 women out of a total female population aged 15-30 of 18.5 million, or 2.1%!

    Of course, there doesn’t seem to be a way to estimate the size of the fanbase today and what percent of them are female.

    This is taken from “The female brain” by Louann Brizendine (she is a doctor)
    Page 185
    “The female brain is only half as likely to be wired for same-sex attraction as is the male brain. Therefore men are twice as likely as women to be gay.”

    Because we know which parts in the brain are wired for same-sex attraction or how that process occurs in either men or women… :

    "The begs the question: Why is that so?

    Male bisexuality is unpopular because straight men aren't interested in male bisexuality so they don't want to watch it.
    But men learned to like female bisexuality and women also learned to like female bisexuality.

    @ Jayman Pretty popular. Middle aged heterosexual women are the fastest increasing, and a very large demographic that read gay erotica.

    but I have to add that she goes on into noting that there are more bisexual women than bisexual men. And it’s mostly because of the hormones plus culture and social learning

  • you are saying that the humans are the exception to the rule that in all species the males are more beautiful, which isn’t true.
    You say that women have longer hair so they are more beautiful. Women have longer hair because of genetics or because society taught us that women should have long hair and men short hair.
    Well I had very long hair for many years (I was a rocker type lol).
    All through history, artists preferred the male body over the female body because they thought that it was more of a challenge and more attractive than the female body!
    Check out the statues from ancient Greece and Rome and Renaissance.
    What happened in the last 50 years was the rise of Playboy and such magazines that eroticized the female body and society learned to appreciate the female form and ignore the male body.

    There is no exception. The males are more attractive than the females in all species, including humans but society taught us NOW DAYS that women should be more beautiful and wear make up and stuff like that. It’s socially learned.
    Compare a woman WITHOUT make up, and without fake boobs to Brad Pitt in Fight Club (no homo).
    That’s why women use make up to appear more beautiful than they really are. It’s fake.
    But male peacock’s etc. attractiveness isn’t fake, it’s natural. The same goes for men, but men are too lazy and grow beer bellies and stay out of shape because they were taught that men do NOT have to look good.

    "Popular" is a strong word. In Japan, in the mid 1990s, the fanbase for yaoi was estimated to be at most 500,000 individuals. Let's assume that that's accurate, and let's generously assume 80% of those are female. So that's 400,000 women out of a total female population aged 15-30 of 18.5 million, or 2.1%!

    Of course, there doesn't seem to be a way to estimate the size of the fanbase today and what percent of them are female.

    Great find! A lot of interesting data there. The part on bisexual women would suggest that their true numbers may be exaggerated by a factor of 2. If so, that’s still a rather large fraction.

    Of course, the OK Cupid data may be a poor way to judge how bisexual self-professed bisexual women are.

    "So why the high prevalence of female bisexuality? Its high prevalence suggests rather strongly that, quite unlike male SSA—female SSA was selected for; or at the very least, that it is a side effect of some other trait that was selected for—a side effect which was itself not selected against.

    This other trait may have something to do with the very nature of female sexual arousal, which itself is qualitatively quite different from and far more complex than the comparatively straightforward, black-and-white nature of male sexual arousal."

    Hogwash. Male bisexuality is common and has been through history. Anywhere the sexes are segregated you will find it and it is not at all considered "gay". All boys schools, ships at sea, the military, sex segregated or arranged marriage cultures - all bastions of male bisexuality and they always have been.

    Sex drive among women peaks in the early 30s, yet most of the women who identify as bisexual seem to be under 25. So it's clearly a cultural thing. I think you're right in that female desire isn't as 'set in stone' as male desire, so there's more flexibility, and it's more emotional. But there are other factors in play. The female body has been way more sexualized than the male body, so I believe that women can, to an extent, be 'conditioned' it finding it sexy and arousing. I've heard women say they are more turned on by nude women than men. Imagine a man saying the same and claiming to be straight?

    I think the potential for males to be bisexual is also higher than you think. You don't factor in the stigma against male homosexuality. I'm 90% hetero, yet I remember being afraid of seeing men as 'sexy'. Women celebrate other women's sexiness. Historically male bisexuality seems more commonplace than female bisexuality, so I think the current increase is a historical anomaly.

    I think that’s because women don’t have a problem actively trying to look like and act like the women they and much of society have come to view as alluring. We women use other women as models for our own behavior. Little girls watch older girls and how they walk, talk, flirt, in order to learn to do those things ourselves. We are aware of our imitation of them, and don’t have trouble admitting to that imitation. Yes, little boys watch the behavior of the older boys, but once they reach a certain age, males don’t like to admit to copying other men. That copying and an admission of such would speak of a weakness in masculinity.

    Seeing other women being sexy, say in a movie, is sometimes a turn-on for a woman simply because she sees herself in that woman, or attempts to, anyway.

  • @prosa123
    The point at which physical activity between two women crosses the line and unequivocally becomes "sex" is a rather blurry one, unlike the case with males. My reasoned guess is that many of the young women who self-identify as bisexual have fooled around with other women but not had what one might consider actual sex.

    I agree with this take. It’s in vogue for women who want to appear hip to say that they’ve experimented sexually with other women….it’s part of the feminist crap they hear.

    I’d also say that I wonder how many men (husbands, boyfriends especially since they have an emotional stake in things) would be still interested/aroused by girl-on-girl if they actually saw their wife, their girlfriend turned on by the other woman. If they were somehow convinced that the girl-on-girl action, whatever it was–touching, rubbing, maybe even more–was not for his benefit but for theirs, would he begin to be jealous or feel inadequate perhaps?

    In my best English ( my first language is French) I think if men were able to chose - along the milleniums - between a woman who could cheat on them with another man while they were away ( and men were away for longer before this century for hunting, or war or whatever and they traveled by foot or by horse which was much slower than cars and airplanes) or chose a woman who would rather satisfy her sexual appetite with another woman( or women ), most men would have chosen the latter.

    as most men do not feel it is cheating if their woman has lesbian sex while most men have zero tolerance if their woman has sex with another man.

    and it makes sense; your woman can not get pregnant from another woman while she could from another man and the husband could end up having to provide for a child that is not his,

    I think having a wife that is into occasional lesbian sex was a much safer bet.

    and if assuming this bi-sexuality was in their genes, since that type of woman was preferred by men, they had better chances of transmitting their bi-sexual genes to their offspring.

    I agree with what the author of this post has said but I wanted to ad my own little theory as what else could be a contributing factor...for what it is worth...

    The problem with that is that most bisexual women are primarily attracted to men. Having a woman who is interested in other women is no guarantee she won’t cheat on you with other men. Indeed, it may be a bit more likely that she will.

    and if assuming this bi-sexuality was in their genes, since that type of woman was preferred by men, they had better chances of transmitting their bi-sexual genes to their offspring.

    Presumably, if men were indeed choosing bisexual women because they believed (wrongly) that they were less likely to cheat with other men, it wouldn’t take too long for selection to lead to men who could recognize this fact, and not be interested in bisexual women for this reason.

    Sex drive among women peaks in the early 30s, yet most of the women who identify as bisexual seem to be under 25. So it's clearly a cultural thing. I think you're right in that female desire isn't as 'set in stone' as male desire, so there's more flexibility, and it's more emotional. But there are other factors in play. The female body has been way more sexualized than the male body, so I believe that women can, to an extent, be 'conditioned' it finding it sexy and arousing. I've heard women say they are more turned on by nude women than men. Imagine a man saying the same and claiming to be straight?

    I think the potential for males to be bisexual is also higher than you think. You don't factor in the stigma against male homosexuality. I'm 90% hetero, yet I remember being afraid of seeing men as 'sexy'. Women celebrate other women's sexiness. Historically male bisexuality seems more commonplace than female bisexuality, so I think the current increase is a historical anomaly.

    Sex drive among women peaks in the early 30s

    That is actually not true. Women sexually peak in their late teens-early 20s, just like men do. That’s a myth that likely arose thanks to two facts:

    • Women become more sexually experienced, hence somewhat less sexually inhibited with age
    • Selection effects: women who are still on the mate market in their 30s and 40s are going to be disproportionally the high-sex-drive, low-committal types. Hence, the anecdote of higher sex drive for older women

    Hence, this:

    yet most of the women who identify as bisexual seem to be under 25

    The female body has been way more sexualized than the male body, so I believe that women can, to an extent, be ‘conditioned’ it finding it sexy and arousing. I’ve heard women say they are more turned on by nude women than men. Imagine a man saying the same and claiming to be straight?

    Well, that’s my point that many, if not most women are latently bisexual.

    I think the potential for males to be bisexual is also higher than you think. You don’t factor in the stigma against male homosexuality.

    I derive my rates from men who report sex with men in the GSS, which is about 4%. Male arousal patterns are fairly straightforward to detect, and thus far few men show truly bisexual arousal, so much so that it has been an effort to find them, as you can see in the paper I’ve link to in my post.

    I think that's because women don't have a problem actively trying to look like and act like the women they and much of society have come to view as alluring. We women use other women as models for our own behavior. Little girls watch older girls and how they walk, talk, flirt, in order to learn to do those things ourselves. We are aware of our imitation of them, and don't have trouble admitting to that imitation. Yes, little boys watch the behavior of the older boys, but once they reach a certain age, males don't like to admit to copying other men. That copying and an admission of such would speak of a weakness in masculinity.

    Seeing other women being sexy, say in a movie, is sometimes a turn-on for a woman simply because she sees herself in that woman, or attempts to, anyway.

    How long have most men been aroused by girl on girl sex ?
     
    I didn't say that it was most men (well, other than imply it facetiously). In reality, I don't expect that it is most men (though a significant percentage, perhaps half of American men).

    I can’t imagine my dad (black caribbean) being into it at all.
    I also can’t imagine my morrocan muslim colleague finding it hot at all.

    The point at which physical activity between two women crosses the line and unequivocally becomes “sex” is a rather blurry one, unlike the case with males. My reasoned guess is that many of the young women who self-identify as bisexual have fooled around with other women but not had what one might consider actual sex.

    I agree with this take. It's in vogue for women who want to appear hip to say that they've experimented sexually with other women....it's part of the feminist crap they hear.

    I'd also say that I wonder how many men (husbands, boyfriends especially since they have an emotional stake in things) would be still interested/aroused by girl-on-girl if they actually saw their wife, their girlfriend turned on by the other woman. If they were somehow convinced that the girl-on-girl action, whatever it was--touching, rubbing, maybe even more--was not for his benefit but for theirs, would he begin to be jealous or feel inadequate perhaps?

    Consider that most bisexual women, despite maintaining SSA throughout life, tend to ultimately end up with men. And, of course, let’s not forget to consider that most men (those who don’t lie) are massively aroused by girl-girl sex (myself included), as the enormous popularity of lesbian porn attests. Perhaps then female bisexuality is so common because it serves some function. Perhaps the fact that men like (love) it is a clue.
