The list of stereotypes about bisexuals is long: confused; in transition; greedy; repressed homosexuals; attention mongers; group-sex proponents; traitors; promiscuous.
One persistent stereotype—and an important one, since it may lead non-bisexuals to avoid relationships with bisexuals—is that bisexuals are incapable of monogamy or commitment to one person.
What these findings mean is that bisexuals as a group appear more willing to question monogamy and consider other alternatives.
This is not surprising: The notion of monogamy as the only or best relationship arrangement is a culturally-imposed ideal, not unlike the notion that heterosexuality or monosexuality (attraction to only one sex) is the only or the best sexual orientation.
Have a casual or group sex story to share with the world?
That's what The Casual Sex Project and @Casual Sex Proj are for.
Consider bisexuals, often unwelcome in both straight and gay/lesbian communities.
Their attraction to both sexes may be just an additional impetus for questioning the monogamy norm.
The bottom line is that if you seek a non-monogamous committed relationship, bisexuals might be more amenable bet than straights, gays, or lesbians.
And these averages also don’t mean bisexuals are incapable of having a committed relationship.
Just because you like bacon, doesn’t mean you’re incapable of eating it for, say, health or moral reasons.
Indeed, 78 percent of he bisexual men, and 67 percent of the bisexual women in this sample were either seriously dating one person, engaged, or married; the respective percentages for the full sample were 87 and 76.
