What I learned in college Human Sexuality is that yes, most people are bisexual but socialization and opportunity prevent them from realizing that. Even though that made sense to me at 20, I was still over 50 before I began exploring it. At this point in my life, I like who I like and love who I love. I don’t really want labels, but pansexual will do if you have to place one on me. Finding release from binaries and norms has been the most wonderful and freeing thing I have ever experienced. Understanding that I could love more than one man at a time was groundbreaking but really embracing how I could also love and like women, and other men was also the onset of a whole new beautiful world for me.
