Women more likely to be bisexual, study finds.

By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor

A woman’s sexual identity is thought to be more influenced by romantic opportunities and women are said have a more fluid approach to relationships.

Women are three times more likely to become bisexual than men because they are more flexible in their sexuality, new research has suggested.

While the majority of men are convinced they are either ‘100 per cent’ homosexual or heterosexual, women have a much more fluid approach to relationships, based on who they meet, it is claimed.

However US researchers found that women who avoided young motherhood, were physically attractive, or had high levels of education were less likely to explore relationships with same-sex partners because they had more romantic opportunities with the opposite sex. These women were more likely to say they were ‘100 per cent heterosexual.’

The study found romantic opportunities appear to influence the sexual identity of women – but not men.

“Women have a greater probability than men of being attracted to both men and women, which gives them greater flexibility in partner choice”
