Women in relationships with bisexual men say their partners are better lovers and fathers than straight men.
78 Australian women who had been in relationships with bi-sexual men were interviewed to gain an insight into the families, intimacies and dynamics between the couple. The study was conducted in a bid to reduce stigma and stereotypes surrounding bisexual men.
‘These mixed-orientation relationships or what I call MOREs, sit outside the boundaries of what many may consider a ‘normal’ relationship, whether it’s straight or gay,’ Dr Palotta-Chiarolli told the Geelong Advertiser.
The study, conducted by senior lecturer Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli, is now the basis of a new book, Women In Relationships with Bisexual Men – Bi Men by Women.
