Moreover, the authors discovered that as the AIDS crisis unfolded, many bisexual men entered into monogamous relationships with women, and bisexual women into more lesbian relationships. But, until now, scant attention has been paid to what is perhaps the most mysterious-and potentially illuminating-variation of human sexual expression, bisexuality.Recent media accounts attest that a growing number of researchers and writers are narrowing the fundamental cause of sexual preference to a single factor, biology. Today, as ignorance and fear of AIDS makes greater awareness of all forms of sexual behavior an urgent matter of private and public consequence, leading sex researchers Martin Weinberg, Colin Williams, and Douglas Pryor provide us with the first major study of bisexuality.Therefore, if a supervisory relationship exists, the supervisor can potentially be held liable for any negligent acts of the supervisee.The duty to warn is as relevant for supervisors as counselors working directly with clients.The supervisor does not have to actually carry out the intervention, but if the supervisee follows the suggestion of a supervisor and this results in harm – this is direct liability.Vicarious liability is being held liable for the actions of the supervisee when these were not suggested, or even known, by the supervisor.
The topics of direct and vicarious liability, duty to warn, confidentiality, dual relationships, and informed consent will be discussed.

But if, as this study shows, learning plays a significant part in helping people traverse the boundaries of gender, if past and present intimate relationships influence their changing preferences, and if bisexual activity is inseparable from a social environment which provides distinctive sexual opportunities, then a mosaic of factors far more complex than those previously considered must be entertained in explaining the fuller spectrum of sexual preferences.
In fact, in the Tarasoff case (the impetus for the duty to warn standard/law) the supervisor, in addition to the counselor, was implicated in the case.
