Documents an increase in more positive experiences of openly bisexual men
Introduction.- Bisexuality: It's Complicated.- Measuring and Surveying Bisexuality.- Bisexuality as a Unique Social Problem.- The Gendering of Sexuality.- Taking Bisexual Research to the Streets.- How Bisexual are our Bisexuals?.- Challenging Identities, Changing Identifications.- Coming Out with 20th Century Baggage.- Coming out in the 21st Century.- Bisexual Relationships.- Conclusions.
This important book provides unique new knowledge on the
lived experience of openly bisexual men without medicalizing or pathologizing
them. Presenting research from sexology, sociology, and psychology, it features
extensive findings on the sexual, social, romantic, and emotional behaviors of
the 90 men interviewed in the U.S. and U.K. Issues and challenges are examined
in such areas as identity and self-concept, along with the burden of social
erasure and the paradox of stigma from both the gay and straight communities.
However, the research reveals evidence of a recent cultural transition toward
acceptance of bisexual identity and behavior, with younger bisexual men
experiencing better social lives and increased recognition of the legitimacy of
bisexuality.
Among the topics covered:
Examining
the components of sexuality.

Measuring
and surveying bisexuality.

Bisexual
burden

Demonstrating
a generational cohort effect

Expansion
of gendered boundaries.

Erosion
of the one-time rule of homosexuality.

Coming
out in the 21st century.



Bringing clarity and focus beyond the gender binary-and
compelling insights into why society and science have trouble shedding that
paradigm-The Changing Dynamics of
Bisexual Men's Lives will interest sexuality scholars, sexologists, and
social scientists studying the social aspects of sexuality.
