I personally have thought it was a way of both bringing him closer to Cordelia (as someone who is used to the idea and will accept someone of that orientation) and othering him from Barrayar (who aren't and can't).

Very interesting question, and I'm going to offer a top-of-the-head thought.


Perhaps LMB thought that bisexuality was a powerful force in creating Aral's
self-awareness and inner complexity, and she uses that complexity in other
arenas.
