Example text

An individual may have a conflict or mix of thoughts and feelings about his bisexuality, about disclosing his sexual orientation to his partner, about discussing his bisexuality with his partner, and about the potential consequences for the relationship. There may also be issues related to monogamy and non-monogamy, risk for HIV/AIDS and other STDs, or the experience of being both bisexual and a member of a racial, ethnic, or cultural minority. Self-Disclosure of Sexual Orientation in Bisexual Men’s Relationships Some bisexual men are aware of their attractions to both women and men prior to the start of a particular relationship, while others only become aware of their bisexuality during the course of a relationship.

There are several typical issues that bisexual men may bring to therapy related to their sexual orientation, including: identity; coming out to self and others; relationships; sexuality; and issues of cultural diversity. In addition to client issues, there are also issues that may arise for therapists in working with bisexual clients, which often have their sources in stereotypes about bisexuality from psychological theory and from the individual experience of the therapist. WHAT IS BISEXUALITY?

For example, there is a range of ways that individuals experience belonging to more than one group and therefore having multiple group identifications and allegiances (Collins, 2004; Dworkin, 2002; Fukuyama & Ferguson, 2000; Rust, 1996b). While some bisexual men may see their membership in multiple groups as a source of strength and pride, others may experience this as a source of conflict and pain. They may feel caught in another either/or situation and significant difficulty coming to terms with the demands that they may feel from either or both groups to make their primary allegiance to and identification with that group.
