More women — particularly those in their late teens and 20s — are experimenting with bisexuality or at least feel more comfortable reporting same-sex encounters, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn't carry a percent guarantee, it's major surgery -- and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring. For women in their late teens and 20s, the percentage rose to 14 percent in the more recent survey. Overall, researchers said the report shows that most people have relatively few partners and are at a low risk for sexually transmitted diseases. A rite of passage? When it comes to women and same-sex relationships, Mosher said it would be worth studying why young women seek such relationships, and whether they may be trying to avoid diseases more commonly spread through sex with men. Meanwhile, she said, men who have same-sex experiences are often less likely to talk about it publicly. In other findings, the survey said that about 10 percent of females, ages 15 to 19, and 12 percent of males had experienced heterosexual oral sex but not vaginal intercourse.

Situational sexual behavior differs from that which the person normally exhibits, due to a social environment that in some way permits, encourages, or compels the behavior in question. This can include situations where a person's preferred sexual behavior may not be possible, so rather than refraining from sexual activity completely, they may engage in substitute sexual behaviors. One example of situational sexual behavior includes when people might not have sex with prostitutes in their home countries, but may do so when they visit other countries, where such activities are legal or ignored by authorities. Another example would be a person who self-identifies as heterosexual, but will sexually interact with a member of the same sex when lacking other opportunities, such as among soldiers , among prison inmates , among college students , or in similar single-sex communities and institutions. Some people change their sexual behavior depending on the situation or at different points in their life. Experimentation of this sort is more common among adolescents and young adults, both male and female. In prison, heterosexual -identified men who have sex with men view their homosexual acts as being "situation specific" and may not consider themselves bisexual. These men often describe how they imagine being with a woman while taking part in sexual activity with a male inmate. During masturbation , they picture past sexual experiences with women.

Experimenting with someone of the same sex is thankfully less taboo than it's ever been. And according to a survey from the sex toy company Adam and Eve, 30 percent of women have done just that. And 19 percent of men surveyed said they've experimented with other men. In honor of Pride Month, we asked readers of all different sexual orientations about their first same-sex encounters. Here are their stories:. Having been struggling with my own sexuality, I boldly told her that I thought we would end up making out.
Bisexuality may be having a moment. According to certain studies, less than half of today's teens say they're straight, and a third identify as bi. For many women, stigma, stereotypes, and occasionally inaccurate media representation can make coming out as bi or even just admitting it to yourself difficult to navigate. A study published in Prevention Science found that people who identify as bi often face discrimination from both the heterosexual and gay and lesbian communities, and that resulting isolation puts them at a higher risk of anxiety and depression. Finally acknowledging and owning your authentic sexuality can be exciting, affirmative, and even transformative for anyone who spent their formative years feeling weird about being bi.
