I've had FWBs who were bi, and whether it was a different personality or the different level of the relationship, we talked a lot about sex, sex with different genders, and different aspects of that.
After joining numerous online sites, the only option seemed to be swinging with couples, because all the bi women are married to men.
Unfortunately, however, most of the discrimination I've faced has been from inside the LGBT community itself.
