At What Point Does A Person Stop Being “Bi-curious” And Just Become Bisexual?
There’s been a lot of talk about bisexuality, bicuriousity and hereoflexibility this week. First, a wife wrote to advice columnist Coleen Nolan about her husband who she claims got drunk and hooked up with not one but two separate guys on a boys’ trip.
“He confessed that he’d got drunk and slept with another man, blaming the fact that he was ‘so out of it,'” she said, adding that he described the encounters as “just a bunch of stuff that happened.”
Then, Australian TV personality Osher Günsberg, a.k.a. Andrew G., gave a radio interview in which he talked about hooking up with guys in his 20s.
The 42-year-old, who is happily engaged to a woman, compared taking a dip in the man pond to going to an amusement park, saying, “You’ve got to go on all the rides at Dreamworld before you find the one you want to stay on all day.”
Günsberg also admitted to “pashing” at least “a bloke or two” in his younger years.
While all this is very fun and incredibly interesting, it raises a legitimate question: How many times can someone who identifies as “straight” or “bi-curious” have gay sex before they’re officially just “bisexual”? Do labels even matter anymore?
