To be bisexual is to be attracted to a person regardless or gender or sex. It does not mean that you cannot make up your mind, it does not mean you are sex-crazed, and it does not mean that you will by default participate in orgies every night.
Of course, there is probably someone reading this that DOES participate in orgies every night, but they would be in the minority.

A person of any gender who has the potential to be attracted to both males and females. This does not mean that they are:

1) trying to attract attention

2) not-quite out of the closet as gay/lesbian

3) confused

4) about to be unfaithful in any way.

A bisexual person has the potential to be attracted to either gender. This doesn't mean that they will be incomplete without regular sex with both genders; it's more of a potential energy thing rather than kinetic. It's also an emotional/romantic thing, not just about sex.

Although some members of the gay/lesbian community look down upon bisexuals, it's just as real and valid as any other sexual orientation.
Abigail had a crush on Naomi for a while, but then got together with Aaron, where she is perfectly happy and on her way to falling in love. She is bisexual.

1. a person that will engage in either a homosexual or heterosexual relationship. BUT THERE IS A PREFERENCE: having no preference at all is called pansexual. True bisexuals will go either way, but for the fact that they enjoy certain aspects of that gender (ex. penis, vagina...). pansexuals actually don't care at all and take no care in physical aspects, they only care about emotional. don't confuse the 2.

2. what bisexual isn't:

- over-sexed individuals looking to hump anything and EVERYTHING

- teenage girls that will make out with other girls so they can look "hot"

- whores (save a few of us)

-confused. there's a difference between being gay/lesbian/bisexual and being confused. teenagers just need to chillax...
1. "Hey, is he still going out with his girlfriend?"
"Nah, he dumped her for his new boyfriend."
"Is he gay?!"
"Nah, man, he's bisexual."

2. "Did you see her making out with that chick?!?!"
"Yeah and?"
"She's bi, dude! That's so fecking hot!"
"Dude, she's straight, and her desperate attempts are obviously working..."

person, male or female, who is sexually attracted to both men and women
a bisexual is like a like a bicycle- rolling on both ends... of the sexual spectrum

The nondiscriminatory sexuality whereby you find people of both the same and opposite sex attractive enough to play genital games with. Also referred to as "The Greedy Sexuality", "Swinging Both Ways" or "The Indecisive Sexuality" by people who like putting things in quotation marks.

Bisexuality is not to be confused with slightly homophobic idiots going out of their way to prove their not gay by touching and making sexual innuendo toward people of the same sex. Nor is it to be confused with girls who want attention at bars and kiss. These girls can be found under the entry for 'daddy issues'.

Bisexual is also not an excuse to act camp at a gay club. Seriously, you just look stupid.
You know that bit in porn where you can see the guy's dick just as you're going to cum? This doesn't bother the bisexual male, and can infact enhance the orgasm.

Alannah was bisexual so she got the best of both worlds from her boyfriend and her female "friends"

The bisexual guy was very attracted to several people at the party. This group of attractive people represented a varied range of genders.

Somebody who is romantically and sexually attracted to men, women and any other gender identification. (Note : Pansexual means that you love somebody despite or not regarding/caring about their gender whilst bisexual just means loving all genders)

Prejudice faced by bisexuals :

People often think it's easier to be a bisexual girl then a bisexual man but this is simply not true. As a bisexual girl I face just as many prejudices as guys. It's thought by some that a bisexual girl has it easier as some men find bisexual females attractive, but honestly this doesn't make it any easier. This leads to the sexualization of bisexual females and the stereotype that we're all sex fiends or pretending to be bi to attract these type of men. This is not to say, that men don't face prejudice too. I'm just trying to make the point that both women and females face biphobic behaviour. Some people say that bisexuals are people who are really gay or straight, that are saying their bi to get attention or avoid coming out as gay.

Positive things about being bisexual :
Once you accept your sexuality it's a great feeling and allows you to stop pushing down feelings you may have once tried to supress. Also, both guys and girls are amazing so if you're attracted to both, there's no point limiting yourself to one gender.
Example of things a bisexual could say (I included some ones that show sexual attraction and some that show romantic attraction) :

eg. That male YouTuber is so hot. I'd totally bang him.
eg. She's really fit. Her red lipstick and long socks turn me on.
eg. I have a crush on a guy from my class I'd love to date him.
eg. I miss my ex-girlfriend but I have to move on and find someone knew.

Example of the type of conversation a bi person can get into since many people will assume you're straight or gay. They don't consider that you could like both. (I wish people irl were as accepting as B and C are in this when they finally realise A is bi) :

Everybody (all girls) : *talking about 'hot' males*
Person A (bi one) : Yeah, isn't Toby hot.
Person B : Totally.
Person A : Yeah and Sophie's also really attractive. I'd totally date her.
Person C : But, you're a girl...
Person A : Yeah and?
Person B : So you're a lesbian? But you just called a guy hot.
Person A : Toby is hot, though.
Person C : So you're straight?
Person A : No, I like both genders. I'm bisexual.
Person B : Oh, I get it.
Person C : That makes sense. I never thought of that. Cool.
