For people who are bisexual, it is often difficult to accept and understand their potential appeal to both sexes. Click on the video to see why recognition is often so difficult.
Last December Ined published a study on bisexual people. In numbers, more women than men are bisexual. Of the 27,268 respondents, 135 women and 94 men are bisexual.

Where does bisexuality come from?
Reminder: Our sexual orientation is neither a fad nor a fad, nor is it genetic. It is much more that it is determined from birth. Some people are born with a tendency to be attracted to men, others to women, and some to both sexes. According to the Ined study, women would perceive this part of themselves at about the age of thirty, while men would live it out around the age of forty. In both cases, those affected have known this since their youth, but have had difficulty accepting what society defines as unnatural.
What does that mean exactly?
Being bisexual means ignoring the gender of the person. One has the opportunity to love man as he is, regardless of the gender he was given at birth. Even today, when homosexuality is still subject to many stereotypes, bisexuals sometimes prefer to hide and deny that part of themselves. The attraction to one or the other sex can occur alternately. Of course it is also possible to feel attracted to a man and a woman at the same time.
