Are bisexuals more likely to cheat? - from Em and Lo

A reader of EMandLO.com posted this comment on our site this week: "Being bi makes a guy more likely to cheat. I’d say the same of anybody who can’t get what they want at home, like a woman whose guy won’t go down on her or a guy whose girlfriend won’t let him do her from behind."

So, what do you think? Are bisexual partners more likely to cheat? Does it depend on anything? Or should you not judge a partner's faithfulness by their sexuality?

One's sexuality doesn't lead to cheating based solely on the preferences of a person and whether or not those needs are being met. Cheaters cheat...pure and simple. Not getting what you want or need will lead a non-cheater to either do for themselves solo or leave the relationship. Getting everything they ask for and more won't stop someone who cheats from cheating. Hell it won't even slow them down.

Cheaters don't like to believe they re doing anything wrong and will justify their cheating with tissue thin excuses like 'I have NEEDS' or whatever. The real answer is to be responsible and meet your needs yourself honestly either by working on the relationship or leaving it.

You should never judge a person's faithfulness by their sexuality, only by their actions.

No way! I am bi. I have no thoughts of cheating. I wouldn't. It is just not me. One's sexuality does not make them more prone to cheat. If you're going to do it, you;re going to do it whether you are gay, straight, bi, or other.

The only thing that could be said here without being too ignorant is that IF a bi person was already inclined to cheat, it would be twice as easy for them to do so.

Ugh, sometimes it just amazes me what some people think. One being bi does not make them anymore likely to cheat, nor does someone not getting what they want at home. It's just ridiculous to think that if someone doesn't get oral or something that they should/would just go out and cheat. It's absolute BS and it amazes me that this is what people think..

If someone is going to cheat they'll cheat. They'll cheat because they don't respect their partner. They'll cheat because they don't care enough about the other person. They won't cheat just because they're bi and they won't cheat just because they're not getting some act at home.

Anyone may think about it but we choose to not do it. I LOVE and RESPECT my partner and so choose to be faithful.

I agree with everybody above. I am bisexual and would not cheat. If I am really unsatisfied in my relationship I will talk to my partner about it and if the situation isn't going to change than I consider us to be sexually incompatible. I can go without this or that, it really doesn't bother me if I feel that my needs are being met. Just because I am bisexual I do not assume the expectation of being able to have both penis and vagina in my life simultaneously. Who I choose as a partner has nothing to do with gender, it has to do with feeling that we are compatible, we love each other and we will support each other. Being sexually incompatible is not a problem, it certainly does not mean that I have to evict that individual from my life, the relationship simply becomes nonsexual.

I feel like that whole quote is just a fun way to blame the person being cheated on for not giving the cheater what he or she wants from the relationship. I don't have a lot of moral feelings on the matter, but I do think that, bisexual or otherwise, you're more likely to cheat if you're not getting what you want in the sack.

Absolutely not. A person's likelihood to cheat is dependent on their morals, in my opinion. I'm bi, and even if my man wasn't okay with me hooking up with girls, I would never cheat on him. If something was wrong in the relationship, I would talk to him about it first, and then if nothing could be done to make the situation work for both of us- I would end it if that was the only option. Regardless of my sexuality, I just wouldn't cheat.

Why would sexual orientation have anything to do with it? That would be like asking if race had anything to do with infidelity. Although, I'm sure somebody somewhere has done a study that

when people assume that I am offended, or they just need some education on the matter. They need a better understanding of what bisexual means

Just because they have a bigger pool to choose from doesn't mean the liklihood is higher. I would say no.

No. People of any orientation are equally likely to cheat. It's not about what gender you like, it's about your moral compass and your propensity to distraction in relationships.

*facepalm* Really? It's 2011 and we're still dealing with this dark ages crap? No, absolutely no. Being bi or pansexual has zero effect on cheating. Cheaters cheat. Bi or pansexual people are attracted to more than one gender. The Venn diagram to be made there has overlap, but so does the one with cheaters and straight people, or cheaters and gay people.

You judge a partner's faithfulness by their actions, not by their sexual preference. End of story.

that perception is just bigotry, plain and simple. just like someone saying that all gays are sluts or that lesbians all get bed death, these are stereotypes, which make for good jokes and shitty relationship material.

Being bi has no relevance on whether a person will cheat or not. My husband of 3 years cheated on me completely straight where as i, wife of 3 years, have never cheated on him being a bisexual female. If a person is going to cheat they are going to cheat and sexual preference has nothing to do with it.

Personally, I think this goes along with the stereotype that bisexuals are over-sexed and therefore are insatiable enough to where they can't avoid cheating. What a load of bullshit. Personally, I'm pan, and I would never dream of cheating on my boyfriend. It depends on the individual. People from any kind of sexuality have the ability to cheat or not cheat.

Someone's sexuality does not make them more likely to cheat. People who are prone to cheating will cheat. The idea that being bi-sexual makes you more likely to cheat is a very closed minded and discriminatory idea.

I'm not really sure what is gained by starting a discussion based on negative stereotypes. Better question: has this stereotype affected you?

I'm nonmanagamous, so I can't really comment, but ever notice how the stereotype is that bi male partners will leave their female partners for a man, and bi female partners will leave their female partners for a man? It'd be cool to stop believing in this whole penis-supremacy thing.
