There has long been controversy about whether bisexual men are substantially sexually aroused by both sexes. We investigated genital and self-reported sexual arousal to male and female sexual stimuli in 30 heterosexual, 33 bisexual, and 38 homosexual men.

The Male Bisexuality Debate Revisited: Some Bisexual Men Have Bisexual Arousal Patterns
TLDR
On average, the bisexual men showed a bisexual arousal pattern, with respect to both self-reported and genital arousal, and were more aroused by the bisexual stimulus compared with the homosexual and heterosexual men.
Sexual arousal patterns of bisexual men revisited
TLDR
It remains unclear which pattern is most typical of contemporary bisexual men: the present results supporting a bisexual arousal pattern, or previous results not finding one; understanding men with bisexual arousal patterns could help illuminate the etiology and development of male sexual orientation.
Sexual Arousal Patterns of Mostly Heterosexual Men
TLDR
“Mostly heterosexual” appears to be a gradation of male sexual orientation associated with unique genital arousal patterns, among other correlates, which supports increased bisexual arousal with respect to self-report and genital arousal pattern among the mostly heterosexual men, compared with the completely heterosexual men.
Patterns of Sexual Arousal in Homosexual, Bisexual, and Heterosexual Men
TLDR
The findings of this study indicate that bisexuality in men is associated with a unique and specific pattern of sexual arousal.
Bisexual men with bisexual and monosexual genital arousal patterns
TLDR
Based on their physiological sexual arousal, bisexual men appear to be a more diverse group than men who identified as heterosexual or homosexual, and there was more variability in the arousal patterns of bisexual-identified men compared with other men.
Male bisexual arousal: A matter of curiosity?
TLDR
It is hypothesized that a distinct characteristic, level of curiosity about sexually diverse acts, distinguishes bisexual-identified men with and without bisexual arousal.
Viewing Time as a Measure of Bisexual Sexual Interest
TLDR
Viewing time can be used to detect a bisexual pattern of sexual interest in bisexual men and bisexual women, and small to moderate correlations between viewing times and rated sexual appeal are suggested.
Gender-Specificity of Genital Response and Self-Reported Sexual Arousal in Women Endorsing Facets of Bisexuality
Gender-specific sexual arousal has been examined in women with sexual attractions toward predominantly women or men, but not in women reporting sexual attractions to both genders. In this study,
exual arousal patterns of bisexual men revisited
Men who identify themselves as bisexual report feeling sexually aroused by both men and women. However, past research has not demonstrated that such men exhibit substantial genital arousal to both
Sexual Arousal and Mental Health in Bisexual Men
There is variation in the extent to which bisexual men get sexually aroused to both sexes. A different line of research suggests that they also vary in how vulnerable they are to mental health

The results for females are unlikely to be explained by ascertainment biases, and suggest that sexual arousal patterns play fundamentally different roles in male and female sexuality.

TLDR
Two opposing models of bisexual functioning are discussed: the "conflict model," which views bisexuality as problematic, stemming from identity conflict and confusion that marks a transitional stage to a homosexual orientation; and the "flexibility model, which viewsisexuality as the coexistence of heteroeroticism and homoerotics, as the successful integration of homosexual and heterosexual identities into a dual sexual orientation.
