Actually, no. Someone who is bisexual may be amphisexual, or may not. Some people who may be termed bisexual enjoy sex with either sex, but not emotional love. For example, many people have known men who are "straight" but enjoy an occasional sexual encounter with another man; he would be bisexual, but not amphisexual.
