Description

This important book provides unique new knowledge on thelived experience of openly bisexual men without medicalizing or pathologizingthem. Presenting research from sexology, sociology, and psychology, it featuresextensive findings on the sexual, social, romantic, and emotional behaviors ofthe 90 men interviewed in the U.S. and U.K. Issues and challenges are examinedin such areas as identity and self-concept, along with the burden of socialerasure and the paradox of stigma from both the gay and straight communities. However, the research reveals evidence of a recent cultural transition towardacceptance of bisexual identity and behavior, with younger bisexual menexperiencing better social lives and increased recognition of the legitimacy ofbisexuality.
