Bisexuality on rise, especially among women
Of the 9,175 adults ages 18-44 interviewed for the 2011-2013 National Survey of Family Growth, almost three times as many women (17.4%) reported any same-sex contact in their lifetime compared with men (6.2%).
Similarly, women (5.5%) were three times more likely than men (2%) to say they were bisexual – up from 3.9% and 1.2% respectively in a 2006-2008 survey.
Eight percent of women under 25 identified as bisexual, and were the most likely among age and gender groups to be LGB overall.
However, women (1.3%) were less likely to identify as gay or lesbian, and the percentage of gay men (1.9%) did not change significantly.
