Polyamorous bisexual dating
If you are like the many people who do not have access to journal articles like that, you can find it for free on my website at under the publications tab.I talk more about male bisexuality in my 2006 article on poly men, "Poly Hegemonic Masculinity" in the journal Sexualities, Volume 9, Issue 5.pages 621-642.It can be read or freely downloaded from my website, “Love - not war”, which can be found at the following link if you scroll half way down the home page: advantage of growing old is you've had time to gain a bit of experience: as you will see, I feel it is important to recognise that a bisexual man is not in the same position as an exclusively gay man and this affects the kind of gay sex he adopts.
Another possible reason that bisexual women are so highly valued among poly communities could be the scarcity of available or “free-floating” female partners.
There are few exclusively same-sex relationships among poly men, primarily because, as a friend once told me “Gay men invented open relationships, we don’t need another label to do what we are already doing.” Lesbians also have non-monogamous norms and groups already within their own communities, and may be reluctant to join poly gatherings because of the likelihood that they will encounter unwanted male attention.
For these and other reasons, mainstream poly communities in the United States often emphasize women's bisexuality and downplay men's bisexuality.
Whether due to the enduring sexual double standard that allows men far more sexual latitude than women, or men’s biological need to spread their seed, men seem more willing to have multiple-partner relationships and single or available women are rare at many poly community gatherings.
Scarcity could increase women’s value in relationship, bisexual or not. One reason there are so many bi and heterosexuals in poly communities is that both of these sexual orientations have traditionally been less developed as identities and thus do not already have an existing social niche, so they have had to create their own in the poly community.
