Jim Larsen, the chairman of the Bisexual Organizing Project, is not amused with what looks like another "duh" study. He told The New York Times: "It's great that they've come out with affirmation that bisexuality exists. Having said that, they're proving what we in the community already know. It's insulting."
Another bisexual advocate worries the study simplifies what it means to be bisexual, reducing it to a matter of sexual stimulation. While the study hooked up bisexual-identified men with genital sensors and had them watch erotic videos of both sexes, Ellyn Ruthstrom of Boston's Bisexual Resource Center says bisexuality isn't explained so easily. She said, "Researchers want to fit bi attraction into a little box — you have to be exactly the same, attracted to men and women, and you're bisexual. That's nonsense."
What do you make of the study?
