AOL UK recently touched base on a Boise State University  study that states that 60 percent of women engage in bisexual thoughts or partnerships with the likelihood increasing the older they become.

Women 60 Percent More Likely To Engage in Bisexuality

Those pesky bisexuals!


US researchers at Boise State University surveyed 484 heterosexual women and found that 60 per cent were sexually attracted to other women, 45 per cent had kissed a woman and 50 per cent had fantasies about the same sex.

Being that women are encouraged to form close relationships with each other from youth, the numbers aren’t quite that surprising. Especially with women placing more appreciation on intimacy. The study also discusses that while women may “label” themselves during their younger years as they aged most women would opt out of labeling themselves, since their sexual orientation wasn’t easy to pinpoint.

Of course, the stigma about bisexuality still exists but with the lack of folks having quality sense (coming from experience), if folks allowed themselves to keep a more open mind, maybe the world would a much happier place. In my own life, I frequently sought to denounce labeling myself but I used that as a way to not discuss my feelings. Granted, I came from a somewhat religious, black conservative home so it was harder for me to come out to myself,

Of course, if I were able to do it over – things would be different. Or, at least – I hope they would be, right?
