We have all heard it, “He is not bi, he is gay and afraid to come out”. Well, it is time for those that believe this to think again! Contrary to a 2005 study, a new study titled: “Sexual arousal patters of bisexual men revisited” which was accepted for publication June, 2011, states that true bisexuality does seem to exists.
This study included 35 bisexual men, 31 homosexual men, and 34 heterosexual men, from greater Chicago recruited from “Internet personal advertisement lists from those respective populations”.
Sexual identity (homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual) was stated by each participant and levels of sexual attraction to women versus men was rated on the Kinsey scale.
Participants were shown 3 minute videos and then stated if they were aroused (subjective arousal). They were also checked for genital arousal using an indium/gallium strain gauge that measured changes in penile circumference (simply stated they checked to see if participants started to get a chubby).
The study found that on average, the bisexual men in the study had ‘distinctly bisexual’ patters of both genital and subjective arousal.
So, the next time you think or say “come out” to someone that claims to be Bi, think again, because it appears, they are out and not only are they out, but they have twice the chance for a date this weekend!
