Boise State Researcher: More Then Half Of Women Are Bi-Curious

Elizabeth Morgan, a professor of psychology at  Boise State University recently published a study that found that “out of a group of 484 heterosexual women, 60 per cent were sexually attracted to other women; 45 per cent had kissed a woman and 50 per cent had fantasies about the same sex.”

According to Mail Online, the study also finds that women become more less worried about labeling their sexuality as they get older…

“Lisa Diamond, Ph.D. a psychologist at the University of Utah, followed a group of women attracted to other women over a 15 year period.  Ms Diamond said the older they got, the more likely they were to choose ‘unlabelled’ which meant the older they got, the more they felt their sexuality didn’t fit into tidy boxes.”

As for that whole “college experimentation ” stereotype, forget about it.  A study on sexual behavior, attraction and identity released earlier this year by the CDC found that women with at least a bachelor’s degree are less likely to have had a same-sex experience than less-educated women.

In an article discussing the study Huff Post points out that “men with some college were nearly 3 percent more likely than men with no college to have had a sexual encounter with another male, and that women are almost twice as likely as men to have had same-sex encounters.”
