Close to 10 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds identify as bisexual: Poll

Data also revealed women are more likely to admit to being bisexual than men.

A new poll conducted in the UK has found close to 10% of Britons between the ages of 16 to 24 identify as bisexual, the Daily Mail reported.

People between this age group are twice as likely than millennials to be attracted to both sexes, pollsters Ipsos Mori revealed.

The data also showed women are more likely than men to admit to being bisexual. While men, they found, identified themselves more as being homosexual.

Researchers feel social media could be the reason many young people accept "more open and fluid attitudes" toward sexuality, the report stated.

"In particular, this generation of young has grown up at a time when gender as a simple binary and fixed identity has been questioned much more widely," Ipsos Mori researcher Hannah Shrimpton told the Daily Telegraph.

Adding, "This is new, and will affect wider views of gender, sexuality and much broader aspects of identity."
