Where can I find bisexual friends

Sex and love: that's what bisexuals really want!


The bisexual flag consists of the three colors blue (for heterosexuality), pink (for homosexuality) and purple (as a result of the mixture of blue and pink)

A survey of almost 700 bisexual men and women sees "special needs in the areas of sexuality and partnership" - and calls for consequences for online dating.

There are many prejudices about bisexual people, including in the gay community. But what do men and women who are attracted to more than one gender really think about love and sexuality?

The first answers were given in a non-representative - and not entirely altruistic - survey published at the beginning of November. The internet portal bisexuell.net and the online dating agency Gleichklang.de have evaluated and compared the statements of 399 bisexual women and 295 bisexual men between the ages of 16 and 80 on sexuality and partnership in their ongoing bisexuality survey.

This is what bisexuals want during sex

About half of the men (44 percent) and women (48 percent) surveyed stated that they felt equally strong sexual attraction from men and women. The other half of the respondents expressed a preference for one gender despite their bisexuality. The heterosexual preference dominated among men, with 40 percent of men saying that they would rather go to bed with a woman than with a man. Only 16 percent of men named a preference for a man as a sexual partner.

The heterosexual and homosexual preferences were more evenly distributed among women: 27 percent of women stated that they would prefer to have sex with a woman, 25 percent preferred a man. Incidentally, 74 percent of bisexual men and 64 percent of bisexual women reported that they had actually had sex with representatives of both sexes in their lifetime.

75 percent of bisexual men reported wanting to have sex with a man and a woman at the same time or having group sex. In contrast, this desire was significantly less common among women: only 35 percent of bisexual women stated that they would like to have sex with men and women at the same time or to have group sex.

However, women who wished for sex like this showed greater initiative to implement this wish. For example, 24 percent of the women surveyed (69 percent of those women who wanted to) stated that they had already had sex with men and women at the same time or had had group sex. Although 75 percent wanted it, only 41 percent of the men surveyed (i.e. 54 percent of those men who wanted it) referred to corresponding experiences.

This is what bisexuals want in love

Almost half of the women (46 percent), but only a good third of the men (35 percent) in the survey stated that they were just as ready for a partnership with a man as with a woman. In contrast, 57 percent of the men surveyed said they preferred a partnership with a woman despite their bisexuality. Only eight percent of the men surveyed preferred a partnership with a man.

In contrast, heterosexual and homosexual preferences were much more evenly distributed among women when choosing a partner: 32 percent of the women surveyed said they preferred a partnership with a man, while 22 percent preferred a partnership with a woman. However, only 39 percent of women and even only 30 percent of men actually had partnership experiences with both sexes.

49 percent of the bisexual men surveyed wanted a simultaneous joint partnership with a woman and a man or even a polyamorous relationship with a larger group of people. In contrast, 71 percent of the bisexual women surveyed rejected such a constellation and only 29 percent were interested in it. Only 15 percent of the bisexual men surveyed and at least 10 percent of the bisexual women surveyed stated that they had actually already had experiences with relationships with a man and a woman at the same time or with group relationships. Similar to sex, the overall significantly lower number of women who formulated this wish were more willing to put it into practice than men.

Résumé

Bisexuals differ according to whether they have an equally strong sexual and partnership preference for both genders or whether they prefer one gender. Women are more related to both sexes than men, who have a much stronger heterosexual preference than women. Many bisexual men and women want a traditional form of partnership in the sense of a two-person relationship, and this is especially true for women.

Much more common, however, among bisexual women and men is the desire to have sex with a woman and a man at the same time or with a group. This desire is also more widespread among men than among women, but is more often put into practice by those women who have the desire than by men.

In addition to the traditional two-person relationship, a not inconsiderable number of bisexual men and women also desire and practice a nontraditional partnership relationship that includes man and woman at the same time or, in the polyamorous sense, several people. It is therefore to be assumed that there are special bisexual needs in the areas of sexuality and partnership.

The proportion of bisexual men and women with non-traditional sexual and relationship desires will presumably increase with increasing social acceptance and visibility of bisexuality. In the field of online dating, the need for a special mediation process for bisexuals is becoming apparent, the search for a partnership with a man or a woman, but also for a partnership with a man and a woman or even a partnership with more than three people should include.
