found that the erection was not parallel/equal for pictures between males and females - Early 2000’s measure genital responses to erotic images of males and females – all showed more response to one picture (genital response is only one aspect though) - Must be careful when concluding because of a genital response (sexual/affection orientation is so much more than this) - However, this made people wonder if true bisexuality was in men - They are not attracted to both in the same way - The strength of attraction to one sex or another may change over the lifespan - The term bisexual is used as a self-identifier as a process for coming out (before saying their fully gay) – but not all of them do Just over half of males retained this label long term A portion of people who adopt this term don’t stick with it but this doesn’t mean that this doesn’t exist Females - More “sexually flexible” - More likely to be sexuality attracted to both, say they are and be accepted - Female sexual psychophysiology studies (self-report vs. genital responses) - Dr. Chiver studies – interaction between how one self-identifies and what’s happening between self-report and genital measures while watching porn Found that women who identify as same-sex oriented show a lot of arousal to erotic stimuli of females consistently in self-report and physical tests Heterosexual females will have self-report arousal levels aligned but sometimes show otherwise and their genitals will respond differently (both men and women)
Headlines “all females are bisexual” but we don’t truly know why this happened - More socially accepted Stereotypes - Confused/indecisive in terms of sexual preferences - Not trustworthy related to the assumption that their non-monogamous - Non-monogamous more likely to cheat and cant have one partner - Sexually promiscuous - Sexual orientation says nothing abut sexual behaviour - Sexual feelings not sexual behaviour (acts and engagements aren’t needed) Bisexual Sexual/Affectional Orientation Types - “Real” real transition where a person is attracted to both genders and happens for a long period of time Occurs early and continues into adulthood Might or might not be sexually active with more than one person at a time - “Transitory” temporary involvement by people who are actually heterosexual or same-sex oriented Happens in single sex boarding schools and in prisons When they come back to their life on the outside, they resume their heterosexual lifestyle Male or female prostitute in difference sexualities Doesn’t last long and depends on available partners - “Transitional” a person changing from one orientation to another This person will then stay in the new orientation in the case of someone who is heterosexual and falls in love with another women and adopts the bisexual label for a short period of time Comes up with something for them in a long-term (queer, lesbian, bisexual)
