Describes someone attracted primarily to members of the same sex (homosexual
), but occasionally attracted to members of the opposite sex AND/OR able to derive pleasure from romantic encounters with members of the opposite sex.
Homoflexibility is related to, but different from bisexuality
in that homoflexible persons most often identify as gay
, despite occasional relations with members of the opposite sex. The term may sometimes be appropriate as a synonym for bi-curious
, where the individual in question is primarily homosexual
The term "heteroflexible
" was first developed to describe primarily heterosexual
persons who occasionally enjoyed hooking up
with members of the same sex. "Homoflexible" later began to be used as a parallel term as defined above.
Gay Boy: "I hooked up with Tina on the bus the other day. It was great!"
Straight Boy: "Wait a minute, aren't you gay."
Gay Boy: "I'm homoflexible, dude. Making out with girls is fun! Just don't tell my boyfriend..."
