Sexual Pathways introduces the topic of bisexuality—a subject largely misunderstood. Persons who display dual sexual attraction experience some form of erotic fulfillment with both same-sex and opposite-sex partners. They may or may not identify themselves as bisexual, but during significant periods of their life span they act bisexually. Studies of human sexuality world-wide indicate the incidence of bisexuality ranges from high to low prevalence in all literate and many nonliterate societies. To better understand the bisexual perspective, the author presents interviews with 30 men and women. Each describes his or her sexual pathway from birth to adulthood,portraying the construction of a lifestyle that incorporates a bisexual perspective.
