What is Bisexuality?
Bisexuality is a sexual orientation directed towards both men and women.
Bisexuality is an affectional orientation towards both men and women.
Bisexuality, or “Bi”, is a life experience or identity, whether the person is sexually active or not.
Bisexuality is feelings of sexual attraction or sexual behavior towards both men and women, but not necessarily to the same degree.
Bisexuality is the “B” in LGBT
Sexuality exists on a continuum. Not all of us are destined to be attracted to one gender or biological sex. There are different kinds of attachments: sexual, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. These may not be separable, but may overlap, leading to a variety of possible interpersonal interactions.
However, when we find ourselves outside of socially defined “norms”, especially in terms of sexual expression, we may experience discrimination and bigotry. For Bisexuals this prejudice is called biphobia. Similar to homophobia, it is the fear and disapproval directed at bisexuals for real or perceived sexual transgressions with others of the same sex, or fear directed at self or loved-ones for potentially engaging in such sexual behaviors.
Bisexuality Counseling in my Denver GLBT therapy practice
Bisexuality Counseling is focused on first demystifying and exposing the myths of bisexuality. These include the misunderstandings or stereotypes that bisexuals are “confused”, promiscuous (will have sex with anyone), use bisexuality as an excuse for adultery or polyamory, that bisexuals are equally attracted to either gender, or that everyone is a bisexual or no one is bisexual.
