A growing number of people in the UK identify as bisexual, pansexual or 'not per cent heterosexual'. Women are more likely to be sexually fluid than men because evolution historically required them to have sex with co-wives in polygynous marriages, an evolutionary biologist has claimed. Many more women than men say that they experience same-sex attraction or have had a sexual experience with someone of the same gender.
A recent survey study shows women are more fluid in their sexuality than men, why is that? Even inthere's still a great deal scientists do not understand about bisexuality. It's hard to quantify this, but in our culture, bisexuality still tends to be regarded with less seriousness than homosexuality or heterosexuality.
When it comes to sexual behaviour in vertebrates, the two sexes are more alike than different. Yet whilst their bodies are usually male or female, their brains are bisexual and intrinsically capable of behaving as either sex. Most animals begin their lives as a single cell, grow and develop into one of two sexes and, when mature, interact with the other sex to conceive a new single cell that starts the cycle anew.
Women may be more "hetero-flexible," or be primarily attracted to men with some same sex attraction, because same-sex behavior allowed women to raise their children with other women, a new study has proposed. The hypothesis, published this April in the journal Evolutionary Psychology, suggests that more fluid female sexuality may have evolved because it benefited women's offspring. Some women who were raped or fathered children with absentee or deceased dads formed sexual relationships with other women, which may have made it easier to raise children together, according to the theory.

Bisexuality is romantic attraction, sexual attractionor sexual behavior toward both males and females,    or to more than one sex or gender. The term bisexuality is mainly used in the context of human attraction to denote romantic or sexual feelings toward both men and women,    and the concept is one of the three main classifications of sexual orientation along with heterosexuality and homosexualityall of which exist on the heterosexual—homosexual continuum. A bisexual identity does not necessarily equate to equal sexual attraction to both sexes; commonly, people who have a distinct but not exclusive sexual preference for one sex over the other also identify themselves as bisexual.

Psychologist Dr Satoshi Kanazawa believes that evolution has led to women becoming open to intimacy with both genders. The study, published in Biological Reviews, reveals that there are differences in male and female sexuality.
One woman walks us through the confusing and misleading versions of bisexuality that she learned from TV, and how they ultimately led her to a place where she began to get comfortable in her own identity. While the author is out in her day-to-day life, she remains anonymous in the piece to avoid backlash from her family and community. It's hard for me to cherish the show that way, because inthe year Alyson Hannigan's doe-eyed character chose Amber Benson's witch over Seth Green's nerdy werewolf, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was already high on my list of things that made my parents uncomfortable--by extension, as a ten-year-old girl, it made me uncomfortable too.
Women are scientifically found to be aroused by erotic situations involving both males and females, and while that may not be entirely indicative of inherent bisexualism, since being aroused doesn't necessarily mean one wants to partake in sexual actionit would make sense in terms of evolution. Women have a lesser sex drive since they are the bearer of the children, so they would, in history, partake in same-sex activity. There's also a very apparent trend between women's changing sexual identity with age.
This is an article about the history of bisexuality. The subject is inherent with systematic biasof non-heterosexuality being seen as less worthy than heterosexuality, and of women's sexuality being seen as less worthy, even of being depicted, than that of men. Bisexual erasure has taken place in many cultures so that bisexuality is often not acknowledged or is interpreted as homosexuality.
Women who are not entirely straight or gay tend to have slightly higher levels of psychopathic traits and a more casual attitude towards sex, according to new research published in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science. The study also provides more evidence that bisexuality is a distinct sexual orientation in women. Semenyna of University of Lethbridge, the corresponding author of the study. First, bisexual women report elevated sociosexuality i.
