A large majority of asexual people admit to having had sexual intercourse in the past. The reasons are diverse: to try it or to be like the others. To have children, to please their partner…
What is bisexuality ?
To be bisexual is to be attracted to people of the opposite sex but also of the same sex as one’s own. In other words, it is the fact of feeling attracted without taking into consideration the sex or gender of the person. First of all, be aware that you do not choose to be bisexual. Furthermore, it is not a mental problem or an emotional lack in childhood; nor is it a way to get the attention of others. Studies on the subject are unanimous: bisexuality is predisposed from birth. It is just as predisposed as heterosexuality or homosexuality.
Am I bisexual ?
As we have just said, bisexuality is a predisposition. So, deep down inside, you know whether you are bisexual or not. In other words, the real question is whether you want to accept (and assume) your bisexuality. However, you have to be careful. Just because you find someone of the same sex doesn’t mean you’re beautiful; it doesn’t mean you’re bi. You really need to feel the same way you feel about someone of the opposite sex.
If we were to talk about a problem with bisexuality, it would undoubtedly be the way it is perceived in our societies. Today, almost everyone (or almost everyone) has an opinion on the issue. Whether in the media, on social networks or in our entourage. Some think it’s wrong, others that it’s natural, or that it’s becoming generalized… Speculation goes on and on. The positive point is that society is constantly evolving. Thus, it is not uncommon to see in the media, strangers or even celebrities declaring their bisexuality. It is therefore easier today to accept one’s “difference”.
How to accept your bisexuality ?
There are many testimonials from people talking about how to accept their bisexuality. However, again, there are no rules or steps for this. The best advice we can give you is simply to live your life. Because it belongs to no one else but you. As we know, the weight of society or the gaze of others can be constraining in this process. The most important thing, therefore, is to accept yourself as you are before thinking of others.
In short, be free to love whoever you want!❤️ 🧡 💛 💚 💙 💜
