Flexisexual – A female who describes herself as heterosexual, but is willing to flirt with or kiss other females
Recently I read a news article about “flexisexual” women. It is a new term to me. Or maybe we could call it a new label. I do not particularly care. If you are not familiar with it, I’ll give the paraphrasing here.
Females who kiss (and/or flirt with) other females, but only have sex with males.
One possible example is Britney getting kissed publicly (and quite thoroughly) by Madonna or Katy Perry singing her cute little song about kissing a girl (video below).
This kind of thing has been going on a long time. I have either been through personal experience or talked to people who have personal experience to know that girls have done this since at least the 1960’s (just for FYI, I am not old enough to have known that far back personally). Maybe they are more open about it lately. I know from seeing old footage that women were very open about it during the 1960’s also. Then it faded away and girls didn’t publicly flirt with, or kiss, or talk about flirting with or kissing other girls publicly (or even where other friends could know about it). It still happened though.
So why does it have to be a big deal now? Why do we have to have a new label for it? Why do we even care?
My answers: It is not a big deal, it doesn’t need a label, and I don’t care.
What is next? Are we going to label Frank (aka me)? That really isn’t hard. Frank is male and so far no writings about encounters with men, so that eliminates homosexual and bisexual (actually, it doesn’t eliminate anything, we are just using the proof found in the writings). There is a whole lot of sexual stuff I have not written about, so it would be premature to describe Frank as Trysexual.
If we assume just half the stories are true (actually more than half are true as of this writing), then we can safely say I am not Monogamous. Since I am not going to admit which of the stories are true, then saying I am Serial Monogamous or I am Polygamous would be guessing (not that I think this one is a difficult one to guess anyway).
I have not discussed what I choose to wear, so the Transexual label would be a guess also.
As for being Metrosexual or Retrosexual, I could honestly care less. I take care of my appearance to a degree that suits me. I will state that I am not Metrosexual, and I just don’t care enough to reject it and call myself a Retrosexual. I think the best description I can give is that I am secure in my masculinity. I don’t have to prove or disprove it. I will just be me and I will enjoy it and every woman who wants to enjoy it with me.
But if you really insist on putting a label on me. I guess you could call me a Writasexual.
