dc.description.abstract This paper examines the relationship between heterosexuals and bisexuals and their scores on hypersexual and psychopathology measures. Limited research has been done examining bisexuality, and the research that has been done is confounded by grouping bisexuals and homosexuals together, and inconsistencies in defining bisexuality (MacDonald, 1983). The present study examines sexual orientation by sexual behaviors, attractions, identity, fantasies, and an omnibus item. The study consisted of 863 college students. Half of the measures assessed hypersexuality and the other half-assessed psychopathologies. A series of multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) assessed the relationship between sexual orientation, hypersexuality, and psychopathologies. The present study found no differences between male heterosexuals and male bisexuals across any of the measures; however, differences were found between female heterosexuals and female bisexuals.
