Who are bi?
Bee is the abbreviated word "bisexual" or "bisexual." Therefore, in order to understand who bi is, you need to define the concept of "bisexual." The term bisexuality, in the broadest sense of the word, means a feature of human sexuality, which may consist of bisexual identity, bisexual behavior and, finally, bisexual orientation. In the narrow sense, it all comes down to bisexual orientation. So bi refers to people with bisexual orientation, which implies sexual, sensual, emotional attraction to both their own representatives and those of the opposite sex. Moreover, heterosexual desire does not always correspond in power to homosexual.
On the questions of who bi are, what is the nature of bi, etc., sexologists give broader answers. In 1948, American psychologist Alfred Kinsey, in his book Sexual Behavior of a Male, published a scale of sexuality that assessed a person’s sexual orientation on a scale from 0 to 6 points.In his writings, Kinsey says that there are no strictly heterosexual and strictly homosexual types in nature, and that human sexuality can be divided into six categories, which are reflected in his "Kinsey Scale":
0: Exceptional heterosexuality
1: Predominantly heterosexuality, homosexual contact is rarely practiced
2: Mostly heterosexuality, but homosexual relationships are not very rare
3: Heterosexual and homosexual intercourse are equally practiced.
4: Mostly homosexuality, but heterosexual contact is not very rare
5: Predominantly homosexual, heterosexual contact is rarely practiced
6: Exceptional Homosexuality
Later, Kinsey added to the scale an additional position "X", which meant asexuality.
The difference between bisexuals and gays and lesbians (homosexuals) is that homosexuals practice only homosexual contact and do not show either emotional, sensual or sexual attraction to people of the opposite type.
