Plurisexual identity is associated with intimate partner violence (IPV).

This is according to a study – “Associations Among Plurisexual Identity, Intimate Partner Violence, Reproductive Coercion, and Parental Monitoring in a Sample of Adolescent and Young Adult Pregnant People” by Maya I. Ragavan, Robert W.S. Coulter, Lynz Sickler, Daniel S. Shaw, and Natacha M. De Genna – that appeared in LGBT Health.

As FYI: Plurisexuality (also known as multisexuality) is the term used to describe people who are attracted to multiple genders.

In this study, the researchers wanted to examine plurisexual identity, IPV, reproductive coercion, and parental monitoring among pregnant 13–21-year-olds. They conducted a cross-sectional analysis of data collected from a cohort of pregnant adolescents and young adults between October 2019 and May 2023 (n = 398). Logistic regression was completed to assess IPV and reproductive coercion as a function of plurisexual identity. Next, they assessed potential interactions between parental monitoring and plurisexual identity and examined IPV and reproductive coercion as a function of parental monitoring for the full sample and stratified by plurisexuality.

The researchers found that plurisexual identity is associated with IPV (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] = 2.3; confidence interval [CI]: 1.4–4.0).

For the researchers, therefore, “the importance of parental monitoring in supporting young plurisexual… people” can never be underestimated.
