What Is the Difference Between Pansexuality, Bisexuality, and Polysexuality?

Bisexuality is at its core the attraction to two or more genders, while pansexuality is the attraction to all genders or regardless of gender. Polysexuality is the attraction to many, but not all genders.

Dan Brennan, MD

It’s not surprising the confusion surrounding Pansexual Vs Bisexual definitions and designations. In most cases it seems a result of the individual’s understanding of either term. Many think of Bisexual to mean attraction to both male and female which therefore could also be confused with the term Pansexual except for one key component.

This definition fails to understand one of the primary differences between Bisexuality and Pansexuality being the inclusion of pansexual non-binary individuals who do not associate with traditional gender roles.

In fact, a number of non-binary celebrities have come forward in recent years and help advance the moment.

This includes well known singers, stars and social media personalities such as Ruby Rose, Sam Smith, Demi Lovato, Janelle Monae, Cara Delevingne, Grimes, and many others who have stepped up to fight back against traditional gender stereotypes in the public forum.

“The older I get, the more I think that I’m nonbinary — I’m gender nonconforming, like, some days I feel like a man, but then other days I feel like a woman. I don’t really — I think my energies are really all over the place. Any opportunity I have to break down stereotypes of the binary, I am down for it, I’m here for it.”
