London, April 12: A bisexual man gets attracted towards both males and females, research says they can be better lovers, partners and fathers.
Amber Rose, famous personality, well-known for standing against slut-shaming and having a sex positive attitude, said in Facebook Q&A she would not date a bisexual man. “Personally-no judgment-I wouldn’t be comfortable. I just wouldn’t be comfortable with it and I don’t know why.”
Straight men were turned out with more emotions.
Glamour magazine found in a survey that almost two-thirds of women “wouldn’t date a man who has had sex with another man.”
These men questioned on the most negative aspects of masculine character traits: including aggression. They also were less likely to value unequal and traditional gender roles, according to Dr Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli, Senior Lecturer in Social Diversity in Health and Education at Deakin University and the co-author of the book Women in Relationships with Bisexual Men.
To make their findings, she and researcher Sara Lubowitz studied 79 Australian women who had been with bisexual men.
“Their partners had had to question their masculinity and sexuality,” Dr Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli tells The Independent. “Because of this, these men were far more sensitive and desired to establish an equitable relationship. They were far more respectful. They were keen fathers and wanted to set up equitable gender relationships in the home.
“We had some women who said that after dating a bi man, they could never go back to dating a straight man.”
She adds: “In most films, bisexual men have either been killed, suicided, or been killers. And been the HIV carriers into the straight world. Very few films, and only recently has film begun to explore polyamory and bisexuality, and women in relationships with bisexual men, in a more positive and varied light.”
The lack of diverse sex education, somewhere responsible for these issues between women and bisexual men and why this pairing is poorly understood, says Dr Pallotta-Chiarolli.
As a result, if a man’s partner discovered his bisexuality by mistake – for instance by finding gay porn or a condom in his pocket – women generally responded in one of three ways. By breaking up with the partner immediately; ending the relationship because of an unrelated issue; or communicating and navigation the situation.
“It became more about gender roles and misogyny. That’s what contributed to an unhealthy relationship,” she says.
