And yet, dating a man who identifies as bisexual remains a taboo. But by seeing bisexuality as a deal-breaker, heterosexual women might not only be unwittingly dodging perfectly decent partners, but the best. Research has found that men who are bisexual - and feel comfortable being out - are better in bed - and the relationship develops - more caring long-term partners and fathers.
Sexuality is a spectrum, right? This is her story. I love to paint, read, and do all kinds of other inside-cat types of activities.

To learn more about why behaviors and identities do not always match, I interviewed 60 rural white men who identify as heterosexual, but have had sex with other men.

You may know Cumming as Eli Gold on The Good Wife or the actor playing TV's first gay leading character on Instinct, but he's also one of bisexuality's biggest advocates. Romantically, he had an eight-year marriage to actress Hilary Lyon and a two-year relationship with actress Saffron Burrows. Now he's married to graphic artist Grant Shaffer.
Given a choice, what would you choose: an American-style waffle drizzled with luxurious Belgian chocolate sauce, topped with chocolate brownie chunks or a nice crumbly sweet, chocolate mousse cheesecake pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? What if you like both? Similarly for bisexual, choosing between men and women is difficult.
Early in my psychotherapy practice, I was overwhelmed by a number of bi and gay heterosexually-married men looking for help in dealing with feelings that they most desperately wanted to go away. Despite the proliferation of religious-based pseudo-psychologists, the power to change sexual orientation is not within the capabilities of a psychotherapist, or even an individual. Coming to terms with who you really are is the challenge goal of life.

Men who live in conventional marriages and at the same time have significant love-sex relationships with members of their own sex are largely an invisible group in our society. However, there is evidence to suggest that they are not rare, only rarely identified. How these men perceive themselves, reconcile the ordinary aspects of their lives with their atypical sexuality, and conduct themselves in marriage and family life are the focus of this study.
