Gender-based differences in body image dissatisfaction are not conclusive. In this study, we quantitatively examined the degree of body image and sexual dissatisfaction experienced by heterosexual, bisexual, and lesbian women, to determine whether body dissatisfaction can predict sexual dissatisfaction. Three hundred and fifty-four women completed an online survey measuring body and sexual dissatisfaction. No sexual orientation-based differences were observed in body or sexual dissatisfaction; however, body concerns were found to have less influence on sexual dissatisfaction in lesbian women compared to heterosexual and bisexual women.

We focused on the ventral striatum, an area of the brain associated with desire, extending previous findings from the sexual psychophysiology literature in which homosexual women had greater category specificity relative to heterosexual and bisexual women in their responses to male and female erotic stimuli. These patterns were also suggested by whole brain analyses, with homosexual women showing category-specific activations of greater extents in visual and auditory processing areas. Bisexual women tended to show more mixed patterns, with activations more responsive to female stimuli in sensory processing areas, and activations more responsive to male stimuli in areas associated with social cognition.

Body Image and Sexual Dissatisfaction: Differences Among Heterosexual, Bisexual, and Lesbian Women

Researchers asked more than bisexual women and those who report being attracted to more than one gender about their mental health, how open they are about their sexuality, their experiences with discrimination, and any symptoms of depression. Among their findings is that bisexual women in relationships with heterosexual cisgender men were least likely to be open about their sexual orientation. Bisexual women in relationships with cisgender lesbian women, bisexual cisgender women partners, and bisexual cisgender men partners were more likely to be out than those partnered with heterosexual men.
Gay women tend to be exclusively sexually attracted to women, while straight women are more likely to be aroused by both sexes, a study says. Researchers asked women about their sexual preferences and compared these with their arousal levels when shown videos of attractive men and women. The University of Essex study concluded that no woman is "totally straight". The new study, led by Dr Gerulf Rieger from the University of Essex and published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology , measured the arousal of women using eye tracking devices and direct measures of physiological sexual response. Previous studies had already suggested that straight women were aroused by both sexes when tested, but researchers had never looked at whether the same was true for gay women.
