It's been suggested that by nature, females are more sexually fluid than men. I'd rather not sit here and argue the logistics of gender and sexuality, so for the sake of this article, let's just go ahead and assume that statement is 100% valid.
Here's the thing though, if you're experimenting with sexuality for the sake of experimentation rather than pursuing a genuine line of curiosity that you may be bi or gay, things can get a little sticky, to say the least.
Some people NEED the experimentation to confirm their sexuality and if it turns out your're gay or bi—awesome! If it turns out that you're straight, you may not have enjoyed the whole thang too much. No shame in any of this, by the way! We all learn in different ways! If you're going to share the story with Reddit though, you best believe we're going to use it for our entertainment value, #sorrynotsorry.
There were a few threads surrounding this line of questioning, so I went ahead and chose the most popular one—"Straight Redditors who have had a gay/lesbian experience, what happened and how did you feel afterwards?"
"I'm straight but have always had a visual interest in women. I have had sex with 3 very attractive women - but not once was ever able to get into it or enjoy it like I would a man. There is a long period where you are quite aware of the fact that it is another woman and cant lose yourself in the enjoyment. I had a mild enjoyment from it because these women knew what they were doing with certain parts of my body - but nothing to what a man can make me feel. Realize that I'm straight and most likely only visually interested due to the sexualization of women in todays media."
"I had always been opened to trying sex with another women but found it so hard to do so since no one in my group of friends would do that & whenever I went out it didn't cross my mind to hook up with a girl. One day while I was out and pretty drunk I met a girl when I found out she was a lesbian I told her about my fantasy she was super down so we went back to her place. Honestly, it was like a dream come true to me I would always watch lesbian porn and imagine how awesome it must be to hook up with girl. It was so fulfilling, she was so gentle and was the only hook up that made me orgasm. I thought it was so hot, I'm super into touching and making out during foreplay and we did a lot of that. I loved her boobs in my mouth & who would of thought eating someone out tasted so good. We kept this going for a while, I would invite her out with me or we would just meet at the end of our nights but then she got a gf. We still txt and catch up but I respect her relationship."
"I am a 40 year old straight woman and 5 years ago I decided to try being involved with a woman because I had many unsuccessful relationships with men and I wondered if I was missing out. I met a lesbian on POF and we dated for about 2 months, and we had sex 3 times, and it was weird.
Eating p-ssy is really weird. It tastes like a 9 volt battery. Women are hard to give orgasms to. I felt very inadequate.
Anyway, she was clingy and crazy and stalked me online and e-mailed me constantly and called me and I broke it off with her. My male friends said a lot of women are like that.
Anyway, I realized that I was definitely straight and I'm glad I tried it because now I know. Also, as an aside, she gave me the best head I've ever received."
"Female here. When I was younger, before I had ever experienced the D, my best friend and I decided to "experiment." Although I consider myself straight, I think making out with females is wayy better. they're just softer and do it a lot better than men can, imo. The orgasm was fantastic and I often think about the experience when I'm with my boyfriend. 10/10, would recommend to curious Redditors.. if you ever leave your computers."
"Straight girl reporting. I almost had a threesome with a dude and his girlfriend. It got super awkward super fast when I was staring down a vagina and realised I am very, very straight. Noped the f-ck out of there so fast."
