Should you experience having sex with with someone of your same sex BEFORE considering yourself gay or lesbian?
For me, this plays into the whole concept of gays and lesbians being hypersexualized in our society. As a lesbian, I feel as if people tend to think I sit around the house and f*ck 24 hours a day because hey, why else would I be into women?! And gay men have had a horrible rep for the longest now of being sexually "perverted" and promiscuous. I don't think there's a sex-prerequisite involved with knowing your sexual orientation. I've known i liked women since I was four. I was not having sex when I was four...I dont think. Plenty of people just have this feeling deep inside that they are the furthest thing from straight long before they even begin having sex. Now I do believe you should test the waters on both sides at least once in life, just to make sure you're safely on the right side of the island. I mean, how can you know whether or not you're severely disgusted with something if you never try it?
What's your take on this?
