Neural Correlates of Sexual Orientation in Heterosexual, Bisexual, and Homosexual Women
Female bisexuality from adolescence to adulthood: results from a year longitudinal study
Few studies have compared the experiences of LB women in the CO process. Rather, most prior research has either: 1 not addressed bisexuality or eliminated bisexual individuals from the analysis; 2 combined bisexual women and bisexual men in the same sexual orientation group; or 3 examined bisexual participants alongside lesbian women and gay men, using a single monolithic measure. More lesbian women had CO to both their mother and their father than had bisexual women. These lesbian women reported lower levels of ISS and higher levels of LB positive identity relative to bisexual women.
Female bisexuality from adolescence to adulthood: results from a 10-year longitudinal study
Researchers asked more than bisexual women and those who report being attracted to more than one gender about their mental health, how open they are about their sexuality, their experiences with discrimination, and any symptoms of depression. Among their findings is that bisexual women in relationships with heterosexual cisgender men were least likely to be open about their sexual orientation. Bisexual women in relationships with cisgender lesbian women, bisexual cisgender women partners, and bisexual cisgender men partners were more likely to be out than those partnered with heterosexual men. Researchers speculated that bi women may be more comfortable disclosing their sexual orientation when in a relationship with a woman.
