Author Topic: A question about orientation

I'm just a bit confused about my sexual orientation, and the definitions of different types. What I mean is, I'm definitely attracted to women both sexually and emotionally, but I am also sexually attracted to men. I couldn't ever imagine having any sort of relationship with a man, even just the thought of kissing one makes me uncomfortable, but I get aroused by images and/or descriptions of penises. I'm definitely much more attracted to women and hadn't even had thoughts of being possibly bisexual until maybe a month ago. I'm really not sure what this means. Am I straight, bisexual, or something else? Is there even a concrete definition of either?

You are what you feel most comfortable identifying as. If you identify as straight, then that is what you are.

Our sexual fantasied, by the way, do not always need to be things that we want to actually do in real life. Plenty of people have fantasies about things that they find arousing in their head, but would never want to actually do. So, your fantasies don't necessarily mean anything when it comes to your sexual orientation.
