    Abstract

    This essay comments on the simultaneous foregrounding and erasure of bisexuality in contemporary cinema and television, arguing that the treatment of bisexuality as an impossibility or enigma (which bisexual theorists can and often do treat in productive ways) is related to the hegemony of the couple in the dominant heterosexual culture and homosexual subcultures.
