It is not clear however, the extent to which the slaving middle men, the Ndowe, invented stories to scare the Fang and the Europeans, both of whom came to depend on the Ndowe for slaves. Morever, European explorers may have misunderstood the significance of human skulls and body parts found stored in and near Fang homes. It is possible that what Europeans saw was earlier evidence of the modern Fang cult of Bieri. The Fang still conserve skulls and body parts as relics to which prayers are addressed and transmitted by the ancestors to God. "

Less than half of 1 percent of the population 'go both ways' in a given year, and there are no data available to gauge the relation between occasional experiences, often years apart, and the kind of desire that motivates them. It is not at all clear that bisexuality is an orientation as we use the term to describe heterosexual or homosexual desire. Rather, the term denotes a category of people who vacillate in their practices--the vast majority of them only occasionally or for periods of time, not constantly. "
