"I Consider My Sexual Preferences a Private Matter"

In Myths on October 22, 2010 at 4:22 pm

Well, who can blame you? Most of us do not want to be defined by whom we have sex with. But the assumption is that almost everyone is heterosexual, so the pursuit of sexual interests in someone of the same sex can be more difficult unless you have some framework for understanding your interests and communicating them to others.

Gays and lesbians have venues where they can meet others and pursue romance without having to elicit a confession of sexual identification. People who are interested in both men and women could pursue one gender in straight establishments and the other in gay ones. A more liberated approach would be to assume that everyone you meet could be a potential romantic or erotic partner. If everyone is flexible, then there is less need to define yourself and limit your options. You can concentrate instead on finding that spark that develops between you and another woman or man.
