Torn Between Two Genders: Why Bisexuality Is Threatening My Relationship

I’ve been in a committed relationship with my beautiful fiancé for 4 years. When we met and began dating I never expected us to one-day be engaged to marry…and yet here I am, planning a lifetime together with another woman. 

From the outside, our relationship appears to be a magical gay fairytale: two beautiful women fall in love and live happily-ever-after with daughter and dog. In reality, it’s not always that straight-forward, in fact our relationship goes through major ups and downs, just like any other couple.

It's 50 Shades Of Gay, And Ok

I’m sick and tired of everyone talking about 50 Shades of Grey. Don’t get me wrong - I’ve read the book and seen the movie. Overall I think it’s great that conversations about a kind of sex not usually depicted in the mainstream have opened up. But today I’m not interested in talking about BDSM or the movies as such. Today I’m talking about 50 Shades of Gay.  As much as the mainstream embraced BDSM, it still kind of fails to embrace all the shades. That’s right - I’m talking sexuality, and the fact it’s not black and white or always heteronormative. Sexuality should be discussed and re-branded as being one of many possibilities.

Most people consider themselves to exist in the grey areas of sexuality, which presents a real problem when it comes to discrimination. Because where do you draw the line? (Filmed at TEDxWomen.)

I Never Thought I Would Fall In Love With A Woman ... Until I Met You

As a young woman I experimented with my sexuality freely, openly and with confidence.  When reflecting on my first sexual experience it was with a girl, we were both 14 years old.

Entering womanhood I found myself enjoying sex with both men and women, but mostly men.  I was lucky enough to fall in love with more than one man during my twenties and at age 24 I was blessed with becoming a Mum to my beautiful daughter.  I was in a loving relationship and happy and yet I knew deep down that I still had more to experience, more to explore.
