Those who have a fluid sexuality will experience changes in their sexual orientation, whether over a lifetime, years, months or sometimes weeks or days at a time. They may be attracted only to men for much of their life but gradually experience a growing attraction to women. And between the lines are the drag queens, travesties, transgenders and who knows what more we might invent to sooth and describe our urges. It is normal to feel different and to have various preferences. Some people do have a choice and they orientate their sexual desires some are born with it.

Luckily the world is becoming more acceptant about the various ways we perceive our identity and who we want to have intercourse with. As long as it makes us feel free and keeps us happy who can tell us who our sex partner can or can not be?
