A person who experiences fluid sexuality will experience changes in their sexual orientation, whether over a lifetime, years, months or sometimes weeks or days at a time.

People who identify as having fluid sexuality often see it as a distinct sexual orientation.
A person with fluid sexuality may be attracted only to men for much of their life but gradually experience a growing attraction to women.

A person may only be attracted to men for a number of months, then experience equal attraction to both genders for a period of time, then experience attraction to neither gender for a time and so on. This would be fluid sexuality.

Often, teenage girls feel that labeling themseves bisexual is played out or not alternative enough. The next best thing is claiming to believe in fluid sexuality, which basically involves constantly referencing Kinsey (see: kinsey scale) and having intelligent debates about the issue in Livejournal comments that basically consist of one person saying "Yes, I believe in fluid sexuality" so another can answer, "I agree. I am a girl and I've noticed that sometimes other girls are attractive."

Arguably, the popularity of the term "fluid sexuality" began to flourish when The N's programming schedule began airing somewhat lesbian/bisexual themed television shows, all of which used "I don't believe in labels, I believe in fluid sexuality!" as a euphamism for "If we talk about fluid sexuality long enough, I hopefully won't have to kiss another girl. Ew ew ew."

It's generally agreed that claiming a fluid sexuality is a mere one step cooler than crying bisexual.
Alex and Paige's farce of a lesbian relationship on Degrassi; Marissa's sweeps relationship with that one chick on The OC; just about anything that happens on South of Nowhere.

"I don't believe in labels. I believe in fluid sexuality, you know?"
"Labels are for soup cans!!!!"
