Bisexual pornography is a genre of pornography which most typically depicts one woman and two men who all perform sex acts on each other.

As most porn is marketed to men, most bisexual porn is marketed to heterosexual[1] or bisexual men. Most consumers of bisexual pornography do not identify as gay.[1] However, bisexual pornography is often placed near the gay section in adult video stores, since many consumers are gay men.[2] A common way that these are depicted in a single scene is with one woman and two men performing together.

Pornographic film industry[edit]

Content featuring male bisexuality has been a growing trend since the advent of internet pornography.[1][3] However the genre remains a very small proportion of the pornographic DVD market; for example at porn retailer HotMovies.com, there are only 655 bisexual titles out of a catalogue of more than 90,000 films.[3] Bisexual DVDs sell much better online than in adult video stores, possibly due to customers in stores feeling embarrassed to buy them.[4] Most bisexual porn is made by small production companies rather than the major studios. Actors are mostly amateur; any well-known actors in bisexual porn tend to be from the gay pornography industry.[3]

Heterosexual actors and actresses who have appeared in bisexual porn, for example Kurt Lockwood, have had their sexuality questioned and been stigmatised;[1] and have been accused by the gay community of being in denial about their sexual orientation.[3]
