    Why you interested in the topic? How'd this come up?

    any else notice this?

    i cant say there is a direct connection but there is a relationship there
    I snorted when I read this, then started running back through all the bipolar people I know, and then it was like, "uh... wow."

    (Well, there is one guy I know who is not self-defined as bisexual, but he's kind of a metrosexual and realized he had some weird feelings for other guys despite being involved wit a woman, so.... ?)

    Two.
    Well, my sister has a brother who is bipolar and isn't gay. That's.. ... three.. ....

    Apparently, this whole 'bisexual/bipolar' thing is a subject that comes up a lot. I can definitely see this post (from the first link) as true:
    Some bipolar people experience hypersexuality when manic.
    Mania makes you feel like tackling life, experimenting, taking risks, and so on. I can see where a 'bisexual' phase might manifest in that state.

    I don't see how there could be a relationship between the two things. It seems illogical.

    I don't know. The earth is bipolar.

    I was once diagnosed as Bipolar, which I've disregarded and replaced with anxiety/sensitivity:

    I'm come to accept that I have homosexual thoughts and fantasies at times, especially when feeling overly manic/excited and horny. The problem is that I am not attracted to the male body, but the idea of submitting to another man, which makes it somewhat complicated (women don't seem designed to want to dominate a partner, and if they do, it's weird dominatrix shit). I actually do feel a little dirty/ashamed from it, which I guess is kind of funny because some gay people say the same thing.

    I've never told anyone that. Ah, the joys of internet anonymity.

    People with bi-polar tend to go through phases of hypersexuality in manic episodes, though this is not always the case.

    Often with hypersexuality bi-polar individuals will be more experimental and take sexual risks (sex with strangers, in public places etc).

    While this does not mean all are bi-sexual it does mean that there is a larger percentage than the general population that they may at least experiement in that field.
