History & Coining[]

Not much is known about the history of this term, however, one source states this: the term multisexual has been around since at least the 1970s. However, the label likely became popular because of the bisexual vs. pansexual debate. It was probably created as a way to bring some peace into the discourse communities, by presenting a label that anyone who's attracted to more than one gender can use.
