I've always wondered how it feels to be bisexual. I just can't/don't feel any physical or romantic attraction towards females (no offense to females.. you're all beautiful <3) at all, even if I tried.

I just can't imagine liking both sexes. That'd be too hectic for me lol.

I can't imagine being limited to just one... seems so dull, lol. Although I tried really hard to limit myself to just one for most of my life... even after accepting that I liked guys, I assumed I was gay and tried to stop liking girls.

There are specific features of each sex that I like though, I don't really like 100% of both sexes... without going into too much pointless detail, I'd say that I generally prefer the personality and sexy parts of guys, and the figure, long hair, lack of body hair, and most other features of girls. That's why I like trans people... for me a combination is actually preferred. Not sure if that's the case with other bisexuals(or polysexuals, or w/e you want to call it. I don't really care about the label anymore. lol)

The aversion straight men have for gay love is kind of similar to the aversion gay men have for straight love. And same for the ladies. And by love I mean sexual expression, but I wanted to keep it PG and hopefully I'm not self-censoring too hard.

I really do feel that if your orientation is exclusive to one sex, the other sex is just ... unnerving and would cause anxiety if you were forced to experience it and couldn't get away.

Is it okay if I ask a question about non-sexual bodily functions? I know there's a PG clause but I'd like to get clearance from you the people first

I remember my high school psychology teacher once mentioned that she didn't think bisexuality was a sexuality at all. She thought all people who say they're bisexual are just confused with who they like, and looking back at it now, she really did say it so nonchalantly (it could have been offensive to anyone who was bisexual in the class). I agreed with her in some aspect because I've never experienced that feeling of liking both sexes and I can't even imagine me liking both sexes, but at the same time, that's like a heterosexual explaining what it's like to be gay (they've obviously never experienced it, so they don't know what it's like).

I guess that as long as it doesn't sound offensive, it's fine. Like QK said, there are a lot of things that have been posted here that wouldn't be considered PG. :p

When it comes to women, I like the more emotional side to them because we can connect easier, and, when it comes to men, I like the more sexual aspect, and this is not me just being 15 and horny.

Me being 15 and horny is me wanting my boyfriend with me, beating up his parents(maybe), and giving him the ride of his life!
And then we go into the loving afterglow, exchanging 'I love you~'s and sweet things. We'll go on dates, and have lovey-dovey times and have fun.

Goshdarn you youthful libertine types, making me feel so inadequate XD

How do you perceive the body odour of the gender you're attracted/not attracted to?

If a guy has a bad body odor protruding from his armpits specifically, because that's the most gross smell imo, or from anywhere else on his body, I find that completely disgusting, lol, although I find good-looking, sweaty guys attractive (from a distance, because sweat obviously makes you smell). Also, I like when guys wear cologne, although I don't wear any myself. That goes for both sexes. I like the smell of women's fragrances better than men's, but yeah.

Honestly, when I'm with someone, whether it be male or female, I don't really take smell into account unless there's an obvious (bad) odor coming from them. Other than that, as long as you wear deodorant, I'm fine. :p

and just for my babez QuilavaKingz, "BO SUX".

Is there a difference in the way you appraise male vs. female body odours?

Like when I smell a certain someone, I get a mental thumbs up. I can't describe it in words - kind of like magnetism. It doesn't "objectively" smell good, as I'd rather be smelling chocolates or strawberries, but there is an attraction and I feel my perception is influenced by my orientation.

I wouldn't say it feels any more 'hectic' it's just nice I guess. When I was young I assumed I was straight, as I'm sure most people do. At around 14 or so I started finding myself attracted to girls, and with many late-nights sneaking onto the computer for some experimenting with lesbian porn google, I came to the conclusion that I was a lesbian. It felt weird obviously as I was still young and naiive, however I came to accept it.
That was until I had my first experience with a guy; and I realized; 'Maybe i'm not gay after all'

I was 17 before I actually realized I was bi, and boy did it simplify things.

I'm not sure I fully understand what youre asking but I'll answer anyway;

I'm not sure whether it's because I'm attracted to both genders, but I find smell of another person to be wonderful usually, be it a male or female person. Obviously though, if you don't shower for a week you're not going to smell good regardless of your gender.

I find guys generally smell 'muskier' or have a stronger smell, and girls usually have a more subtle scent. Either way the only time I've really ever noticed and appreciated the smell of another person is either sleeping together, or during moments of passion.

Mayhap it's simply part of infatuation.

In addition to what I mentioned earlier about monogamy; I've only ever felt like i've fully loved someone once, being my current partner.
Since I've been with her, I've found myself less emotionally attracted to others, of either gender. My physical attraction to either gender hasn't changed.

I guess that's probably some sort of natural, monogamous instinct.

An asexual and can just as well be romantic, and many are, seeking the love and companionship of whatever gender they connect with, but having little or no interest in the physical (ie. sexual) aspect of the matter. Conversely, a bisexual could be aromantic, let's say. One could even be a heteroromantic homosexual, in theory; and so on.

I was thinking that how you view body odour could reflect ones sexual preferences. Because sex is a sensual experience and smell definitely plays a part, even if its a small one. I didn't want to spell it out cuz that might skew some of your answers but I suck at making things clear anyways

I think I understand now...
But, I don't know how to answer this question.

Haha it took me forever to come up with what I did above. Or maybe body odour is sensually significant for me But I understand this isn't a kink club.

It's hard to say for sure. Either all of the ladies I interact with are too covered in perfumes and conditioners etcetera or I just don't notice because I'm not attracted to them.

On the other hand I definitely notice men. This may be getting tmi for some of you haha, but I absolutely love it when I can smell a guy. To the point that even having a guy walk by on a warm day can be a turn on. :P It has to be an accent to other attraction, though. Obviously if I'm not attracted physically then I don't really want to smell you. It's all a package deal.

I think it's all biology. Pheromones and whatnot.

I've never noticed a girl having a smell, and guys only smell when they're haven't showered or are really sweaty which is gross, so... yeah. Scent doesn't play a role in it for me afaik.

GUYS!
I did it!
I came out to my brother! And told him about my boyfriend! And the fact he was 19.
He told me to be careful, and then went to tell me about his little gay experiences...
And now he's engaged to the woman he's been dating for years...
It's weird.

Congratulations! I'm sure most of us here know how hard that can be, especially to a peer rather than an adult. Glad he seemed understanding, he clearly cares for you as a brother which is great.

I always wished I had an older brother, I think it would have been pretty cool.

Yes. Women smell great to me, whereas guys don't seem to give off any kind of scent unless they are sweaty. But yeah, all women smell good to me- my girlfriend especially.

Congrats! I would tell you the same thing, you can't trust older men. My girlfriend's ex being one year older scared the crap out of me and is still unsettling. But I guess my ego was at stake

What's it like dating someone older? or younger? I can't imagine myself doing either.

Yeah, he's kinda stupid sometimes, but I love the poor lug.
Both he and his girlfriend understand, and they both have a metric ton of bi/gay friends.

Well, it's pretty much the same as dating someone whose the same age. Especially with him because I believe I'm his first...
But I love him so much, but, the distance kills me...

I still want to whack his head for being stupid sometimes though.

I think you underestimate your closeness, tbh. The fact that he felt comfortable enough with you to tell you specifics about any 'gay' experience he's had, or any sexual experience at all, says a lot. My sister knows I'm gay and I wouldn't feel comfortable even approaching a sexual topic with her, nor would she with me. I envy that a bit.

I always wanted a brother too, though.

Also re: smells... the guy I was dating wore Britney Spears perfume and I really liked him, and my roommate that I'm slowly falling in love with wears men's cologne. So there's nothing to that for me.

I believe the question pertains only to natural body odour(s), not manufactured fragrances to which we are not genetically predisposed to react.
