Self-identified bisexual men report high sexual arousal to both male and female stimuli, but no study to date has compellingly demonstrated that such men have a bisexual pattern of genital arousal. We examined sexual arousal patterns among bisexual men recruited using stringent criteria designed to exclude those who were less likely to have sexual interest in both sexes. Furthermore, we included a bisexual stimulus depicting a man engaged in sex simultaneously with another man and a woman. On… Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Bisexual Phenomena Among Gay-Identified Men
TLDR
Transitional bisexuality among future gay men is mostly a matter of transitional bisexual identification, and mostly homosexual men showed statistically significant increases in genital arousal to female stimuli, compared with completely homosexual men. Expand
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. Expand
Robust evidence for bisexual orientation among men
TLDR
Investigating whether men who self-report bisexual feelings tend to produce bisexual arousal patterns provided compelling evidence that bisexual-identified men tend to show bisexual genital and subjective arousal patterns, and supported the view that male sexual orientation contains a range. Expand
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 healthExpand
Do Bisexuals Have a Bisexual Viewing Pattern?
TLDR
Applying analytic approaches capable of detecting bisexual responding revealed that bisexual men, but not bisexual women, had aunique bisexual controlled attention pattern, and that neither bisexual men nor women demonstrated a unique bisexual pattern of initial attention. Expand
Neural Correlates of Sexual Orientation in Heterosexual, Bisexual, and Homosexual Men
Studies of subjective and genital sexual arousal in monosexual (i.e. heterosexual and homosexual) men have repeatedly found that erotic stimuli depicting men’s preferred sex produce strong responses,Expand
Gender-Specificity in Sexual Interest in Bisexual Men and Women
TLDR
It is suggested that self-identified bisexual men and women demonstrate a truly bisexual pattern of sexual interest, characterized by greater other-sex attraction and less gender-specificity than is true for gay men and lesbians. Expand
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.

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. Expand
Sexual Arousal Patterns of Bisexual Men
TLDR
B bisexual men did not have strong genital arousal to both male and female sexual stimuli, and most bisexual men appeared homosexual with respect to genital arousal, although some appeared heterosexual. Expand
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. Expand
