Are All Women Bisexual? April 30, 2018 – Posted in: Adult Industry News, LGBTQ, News
How many times have you watched porn and saw a virginal young girl seemingly surrender to a more experienced woman after a few caress and kisses? Sure, porn fulfills a fantasy for a certain demographic. But the inherent bisexuality of women is rooted in nature.
With The Right Mood, And The Right Time
Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, a psychologist at the London School of Economics and Political Science, posits that women respond to sexual stimuli a lot different than men or gays. For instance, never in a million years would you find a man getting aroused at watching another man’s erect phallus. Whether they admit it or not, straight men can find other men attractive according to society’s standards of beauty. But if say, for example, Brad Pitt will drop his pants and spoon them, revulsion would probably be the first reaction
With women, it’s different because there are other factors at play. According to Kanazawa, if the monthly sexual peak coincides with the right partner–meaning there’s a certain attraction there—and if placed in the right move, women can be sexually pliant and prone to experiment with another woman.
Bisexual Tendencies of Women
The seminal study from the University of Essex’s Department of Psychology, led by Dr. Gerulf Rieger, showed that women are aroused by naked images of both men and women. Rieger and his team hired 345 women in the study and for the straight ones, more than 7 of them were shown to have been stimulated by female and male form. Lesbians are different, however, as they are more similar to men in terms of arousal response.
More and More Women Coming Out
A 2015 survey by the Office of the National Statistics in the UK concluded that in the last three years prior to the report, the total of women who identify themselves as bisexual swelled by 45%. Of course, society has evolved when it comes to accepting the many gradients of female and male sexuality. Compared to just a few years ago, the thought of a woman coming out as gay would have merit hostility and alienation.
However, it must be pointed out that the stigma is still there. This is probably why it’s more acceptable for women to profess to be bisexual than outright confessing to being a lesbian. Plus the fact that celebrities have become more open about their sexuality only contributed to the cause. For instance, English model Cara Delevingne has had relationships with musician St. Vincent and actress Michelle Rodriguez. True Blood’s Anna Paquin, though married to co-star Stephen Moyer, also confessed to being bisexual. The fact that their confession did not hurt their careers can only benefit young girls out there who are still undecided about coming out.
So, Are All Women Bisexual?
The answer, as in most cases with women, is not as black and white. It’s impossible to speak in absolute terms when it comes to female sexuality. It’s much more accurate to say, therefore, that women are more likely to experiment with other women (compared to men with other men). But identifying themselves as bisexual doesn’t preclude the fact that they will become exclusively heterosexual later on if the right partner comes along.
Next time you find a prude being seduced by another woman in porn, you can rest assured that it’s much closer to reality than you think.
