Down-low is an African American slang term  that typically refers to a subculture of black men who usually identify as heterosexual, but who have sex with men ; some avoid sharing this information even if they have female sexual partner s , they are married, or they are single. The term originated in the Black community, and was originally used to describe "any kind of slick, secretive behavior, including infidelity in heterosexual relationships". According to a study published in the Journal of Bisexuality , "[t]he Down Low is a lifestyle predominately practiced by young, urban Black men who have sex with other men and women, yet do not identify as gay or bisexual". In this context, "being on the Down Low" is more than just men having sex with men in secret, or a variant of closeted homosexuality or bisexuality—it is a sexual identity that is, at least partly, defined by its "cult of masculinity" and its rejection of what is perceived as white culture including white LGBT culture and terms. In his book Beyond the Down Low: Sex, Lies and Denial in Black America , Keith Boykin states that secret homosexual relations are not unique to African American men, and in fact occur in many societies and among all races. In "Power Plays, Power Works" John Fiske suggests that closeted homosexuality may be more common in American communities suffering from widespread poverty, in which members reportedly depend heavily on traditional family networks and often religious institutions for financial and emotional support.
Bisexuality is romantic attraction, sexual attraction , or sexual behavior toward both males and females,    or to more than one sex or gender. The term bisexuality is mainly used in the context of human attraction to denote romantic or sexual feelings toward both men and women,    and the concept is one of the three main classifications of sexual orientation along with heterosexuality and homosexuality , all of which exist on the heterosexual—homosexual continuum.
