One interesting response to these questions is that there simply aren't that many of them.Recent research from the US suggested that women are three times more likely to become bisexual than men, because they are more flexible in their sexuality.• Bisexual people 'more likely to be poor' Yes, rumours surround Malcolm X, Cary Grant, and Marlon Brando – but they're just that: rumours. In the land of the living, Suede frontman Brett Anderson once created headlines by implying he was sexually interested in all people (although, like Bowie, he went on to marry a woman and have children).More recently, British diver and TV personality Tom Daley bravely announced himself to be bisexual in 2013 – only to then declare himself gay the next year.

But bisexual man are neither understood nor found socially sexy; coming out as one might elicit stunned silences and even rejection from friends.
The irony is that bisexuality was historically seen as thoroughly natural.
And you can’t find people like that.” “The beginning of the year he was killed, he said to me, ‘I could have done it, but I can’t because I just never found somebody that was that attractive,’” she added.
“Both John and I were into attractiveness — you know — beauty.” In truth, these revelations – Yono also suggested that her husband came close to a sexual encounter with Beatles manager Brian Epstein – should come as little surprise.
