This paper examines the book "Dual Attraction: Understanding Bisexuality" which was written by three sociologists examining the issue of dual attraction by comparing bisexuals, homosexuals and heterosexuals residing in the area of San Francisco. The paper shows that the book takes the view that studies of sexuality are of interest to the public. Over the past few decades, there has been an ongoing clash between heterosexuals and homosexuals as the latter have become more overt, more visible and more challenging to the earlier customs of society.
From the Paper:"The authors examine different surveys and research reports showing how people come to discover and experience their sexuality. This is a large subject and not at all as simple as some people might believe. Indeed, society makes the topic all the more complicated by imposing ideas about sex and sexuality so that anyone who deviates from the accepted course has to find a justification for doing so and may have to withstand a variety of challenges from those who do not approve."
