Description - Bisexuality in the Lives of Men by Erich W. Steinman

A Multidisciplinary Examination of a Long-Neglected, Controversial Topic; The first ever anthology to explore the theoretical, political, psychological and cultural issues surrounding male bisexuality, all in easy-to-read language. Men who love both men and women fall victim to numerous types of stereotyping in both scholarly studies and popular culture. Often vilified or misunderstood by everyday society, lumped together with gay men in cultural studies, rejected by the straight community for being too gay or rejected by the gay community for being too straight, bisexuality is a long-overdue topic of discussion. A lack of research on how bisexuality is experienced, interpreted and encoded in literature, film and other aspects of popular culture means that stereotypes, stigma and confusion are still prevalent. This timely study brings together theoretical, scientific and literary expertise to dispel the fictions surrounding male bisexuality and reveal the whole bisexual man. Includes; Public health research concerning HIV transmission. The marital consequences of a husband's bisexuality. The empirical differences between bi-negativity and homophobia. The lack of public visibility of bisexual men as compared to bisexual women.
