Bisexuality opens the door to more energy exchange among humans. So why is it not readily accepted by all cultures and societies?
Thank you, namaste

In the book The Nature of the Psyche: Its Human Expression, Seth (an entity channeled by Jane Roberts) says the following in relation to this topic:
The love and cooperation that forms the basis of all life, however, shows itself in many ways. Sexuality represents one aspect, and an important one. In larger terms, it is as natural for a man to love a man, and a woman to love a woman, as it is to show love for the opposite sex. For that matter, it is more natural to be bisexual. Such is the "natural" nature of the species.
You have put love into very definite categories, so that its existence is right only under the most limited conditions. Loves goes underground, but springs up in distorted forms and exaggerated tendencies. You have followed this course for different reasons at different times. Neither sex is to blame. Instead your sexual situation is simply another reflexion of the state of your consciousness. As a species, presently at least in the Western world, you equate sex and love. You imagine that sexual expression is the only one natural to love.
Your belief lead you to suppose that a natural bisexuality would result in the death of the family, the destruction of morals, rampant sexual crimes, and the loss of sexual identity. I would say, however, that my last sentence adequately describes your present situation. The acceptance of the species' natural bisexuality would ultimately help solve not only those problems but many others, including the large instances of violence, and acts of murder.
In your terms, however, and in your circumstances, there is not apt to be any easy transition.

Well, yes, Love is what spirituality is about.
But the word Love used in that context refers to an impersonal, universal feeling of oneness with the "Divine", however you define that for yourself.
And I think that's a different usage of the word Love to the one that refers to romantic and sexual activities, though those activities can sometimes be a direct expression of it.
In my mind, it's just arbitrary human-devised-but-often-disguised morality systems (and especially those with sexual hang-ups!) that seem to demand conformity towards what is or is not apparently appropriate for a particular culture.
I used to read a lot of Plato and it always amused me how those Ancient Greek philosophers held homosexual love in such high regard. And yet in today's societies, that are often structured around the principles that those same philosophers put forth, it is held in such low regard. :)
My own view regarding people's personal sexuality preferences is probably along the lines of...

Do you have to have sex with someone to love them?
Sexual attraction with people of the same sex is difficult to reconcile with the primary purpose of sexuality, which is to procreate. That, in a nutshell, is why it is not readily accepted by all cultures and societies.

It was accepted, to some extent, in some periods - and to certain stages of life even.
It's not just bisexuality that is not accepted though. The WHOLE of sexuality has been pushed down and unaccepted.
Even in our current 'sexually free' world (in general) it is still unaccepted. Sexuality has become equated with nudity - which is even less equivalent to sexuality than love is, I would argue. It is done to such an extent that violence, murder and such are considered "more appropriate" for younger ages to view than sex is - as evidenced by the ratings placed on movies. In fact, violence and horror are often rated lower than (or equivalent to) movies which happen to have merely sexual innuendo in them.
Sex at some point was deemed purely for procreation and anything other than that was a misuse. And people would shout up "only humans have sex for something else"...and in fact, some even still do shout that. But they're wrong. Countless animals (particularly mammals and birds) have been observed having sex outside of reproduction, with the other gender and the same gender - and most biologists speculate that those not yet observed probably will be someday. This of course met with resistance, since it made no sense if sex was purely for reproduction. Now the general consensus is that sex acts as a form of social bonding...a social lubricant to ease over troubles in a group.
I don't want to speculate why we started this nonsense...there's plenty of theories on that, some more crazy than others. But we did.
I am bisexual. I have not been unaccepted by anyone I've expressed that to. But then, I also am young and my generation does not really have that many hang ups about it. This shows that it is becoming more accepted, and there is a shift in society towards it in the coming years.
I do not think it "right" to suggest that everyone "should be" bisexual though. If we are going to start down that road it becomes a slippery slope very fast.
If we should express love more fully (sexually) why stop at bisexuality? Why - we could go further to pan-sexuality...or even further and have sex with animals. And then - why limit it to one monogamous relationship, when you could express yourself that way outside of one? Wouldn't that be more loving? [Another thing I actually am in support of to an extent] And then - why not be able to express your love that way freely to anyone, whether they want it or not? And if they say nay then they aren't being loving enough and need to spiritually grow.
I know that is getting a bit ludicrous - but it's the logical road one heads down based on the premise you gave. And I don't think you quite intended it.

a broader viewpoint may include that sex is an appetite,

Perhaps the following will clarify the difference between romantic love and love as the basis of spirituality..
