A New Paradigm

In Announcements on June 9, 2010 at 9:04 pm

Flexuality is a new blog for a new concept:

You do not have to identify yourself according to the gender of your partner.

You do not have to choose between gay and straight.

A homosexual experience does not make you gay or lesbian, any more than a heterosexual experience makes you straight.

Surveys indicate that a near majority of men and women have desires and experiences that are not easily defined as gay or straight. And the numbers are growing. In many cultures throughout human history, bisexuality has been considered the norm.

This blog will explore the wide range of human experiences and attractions, and the variety of sexual orientations you have to choose from.

Future posts will expore human sexuality from a variety of perspectives: genetic, animal research, demographic surveys, literature, art, history, anthropology, news and media, medicine, psychology, and gay studies. I will post results from readers’ polls and encourage you to take the Flexuality Test to see how flexible you might be.

I am a psychiatrist, author, and teacher who has studied and taught human sexuality for more than a decade. Most scientific research suggests that humans have bisexual potential, but we continue to assume that everyone is either gay or straight. My mission is to share the evidence, debunk the myths, and open up the middle ground.

This blog is a place where you can explore your interests in both sexes, without feeling compelled to choose a label. I hope you will share your thoughts and experiences.
