"I Like Guys and Girls in Different Ways."

Bisexual is not a particularly subtle term. It implies that you are sexually attracted to men and women to the same degree and in the same ways. In fact, social scientists speak of this as “true bisexuality,” as if other forms were not genuine. But no one explained this to Mother Nature.

In fact, as you might expect, people are often attracted to men and women to different degrees and for different reasons. You might enjoy the excitement and mechanics of sex with both genders without necessarily wanting or feeling an emotional love for both. You might be turned on by women but get crushes on men, or vice versa. In other words, your sexuality might be flexible but not easily defined or labelled.

Perhaps we need as many terms for sexuality as Eskimos are said to have for snow.
