Abstract

Research on the sexual lives of bisexually-identified women tends to focus on their heightened risk for sexually transmitted infection acquisition. The development of effective, tailored interventions would benefit from detailed behavior estimates from a large sample of bisexual women. Thus, this study collected sexual behavior data from 710 bisexually-identified women. When possible, items were adapted from the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior. Approximately equal proportions of participants reported no recent (past 30 days) sexual partners, male sexual partners only, female sexual partners only and male and female sexual partners. The majority of participants reported a diverse sexual repertoire.
