Longitudinal Study on Female Bisexuality

The American Psychological Association has published a new study of bisexual women in the January 2008 issue of Developmental Psychology. This 10-year longitudinal study of 79 women provides emperical demonstration "that the distinction between lesbianism and bisexuality is a matter of degree rather than kind" while examining the nature of bisexuality (Diamond, 2008).
