How do I figure out if I'm bisexual? The fact that you're asking says that you are bi-curious. So what I would do if I were you is run this through my brain and decide is this something that I want to pursue further or not? Decide yes or no and stand on it! If yes, give it a try. Make sure make sure that you have a safe place and an understanding partner to let you out if you feel uncomfortable. You will naturally feel slightly uncomfortable because it is your first time experience so keep that in mind.
When you're done then evaluate it and if you like it then you might want to try it some more and consider yourself bisexual. But your first time is going to be Touch and Go some good and some uncomfortable stuff you'll need to find what you like and what you don't like. For example some considered themselves tops some consider themselves bottoms some are flexible. And this basically refers to the person that is giving it to the other or the person that is receiving it.
I myself realize that I was bi-curious at an earlier age. I attempted to explore with my wife at my side who intimidated me and made me feel as if my maleness was being lessened therefore I wasn't able to enjoy myself and the experience. She pressured me to do it more but the seed was already planted that she was challenging my maleness.
After that marriage I explored my bisexuality with a partner and alone. I find great joy and satisfaction and being bisexual. How do I know if I'm bisexual or not? Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, the usual definition of bisexual is someone who's sexually attracted to people of both the same, and different, genders compared to their own gender not necessarily to the same degree or at the same time. A gender is male, female or some other "non-binary" option which some people choose as their identity.
A lot of people are perfectly certain about their sexuality just from thinking about it. They examine their sexual feelings. If they get a sexual feeling when they think about one person's body, then also when they think about another person's who is of a different gender to the first, then that can make them sure they're bisexual.
I was certainly sure I was bi on this basis, several years before I ever had sex with anyone. I felt sexual attraction to some men, and to some women. Thinking about them naked made me feel sexual. Some people get sexual feelings about just one gender, and never get them about others, which presumably makes them feel heterosexual or homosexual. Most people seem to be quite sure about this. But it's not unknown for a few people to change their mind, as their life goes on.
However, if you're not sure about your feelings, the only way to know for sure is to have some sex. Try sex with a man, try sex with a woman, if you enjoy both, you're bisexual! Try to have good communication with your partners; if you're not sure whether you're going to enjoy it, let them know in advance that it's an experiment for you. It's not fair to experiment on people without letting them know.
Give them a chance to back out, and experiment with someone who's happy to experiment with you. Also, it's fine to lay down rules in advance, things you would like to try and things you definitely don't want to try straight away.
It's fine not to have penetrative sex, for example. Touching each other's genitals with your hands or lips is still sex. If you enjoy the experience, then that tells you that you have sexual feelings for someone of that gender.
Doing things and then processing the experience thinking about it and how you felt is a good way to clarify your feelings. And it can be fun too, hopefully for both people involved. How can I know whether I'm bisexual or not? Why does it matter? I see questions like this all the time on Quora, and while I understand that it's a human instinct to want to categorize and label everything in our world including ourselves and our sex lives , the best thing about most human experiences and that certainly includes sex is being open to changing up those experiences.
Think of it like food. We all like to eat, but most of us like to eat some things more than others. Some of us are vegetarians, some like seafood, some of us don't care much for lima beans. None of that means that we can't mix things up every so often and eat something we've never tried before.
Sure, you like pizza, and would like to eat pizza for dinner every day. But then one day it occurs to you that maybe you could have a nice Vietnamese stir-fry for dinner.
And you think, wow, all this time, I was only into pizza, but now I can try something new! Maybe you'll like the stir-fry, maybe you will go back to just eating pizza - it really doesn't matter.
You can try different things! I mean, sure, maybe you're allergic to peanuts, so don't eat those, but just because the last time you ate lima beans was when you were six and hated them doesn't mean that you won't like the way my Aunt Jeanne makes them. They're really pretty good! But back to your question. Do you have a desire to have sex with people of varying genders?
Then, yeah, you're probably bisexual. But nothing about your desire has to be set in stone. Maybe you thought of yourself as straight but want to experiment and see what same-sex fun is like.
Maybe you used to like both men and women, but now really only want to be with women. Either way, who cares? Don't worry so much about labels and live your life according to what feels right for you in the moment.
