Ok, hold onto your hats ladies, apparently as we get older, we become naturally bi-curious when it comes to sex. I have to admit I never heard of the term bi-curious, but have always thought if all the taboos would disappear we are all bi-sexual by nature. Some women I have talked to agree with that, others are not so sure.
A study carried out by Boise State University found that out of a group of 484 heterosexual women, 60 per cent were sexually attracted to other women; 45 per cent had kissed a woman and 50 per cent had fantasies about the same sex.
Elizabeth Morgan, a professor of psychology at the Idaho-based university, whose studies are focused on same-sex attractions among heterosexuals, said her findings revealed that straight women often feel more than a friendly affection for other women.
It is said often that women’s friendships are barely distinguishable from romantic relationships. ‘Women are encouraged to be emotionally close to each other,’ said Prof. Morgan.
‘That provides an opportunity for intimacy and romantic feelings to develop.’
Contributing to the findings, Lisa Diamond, Ph.D. a psychologist at the University of Utah, followed a group of women attracted to other women over a 15 year period.
The findings startled even her. Over time, each woman’s chosen labels changed repeatedly, with one noteworthy trend.
Ms Diamond said the older they got, the more likely they were to choose ‘unlabelled’ which meant the older they got, the more they felt their sexuality didn’t fit into tidy boxes.
She said: ‘We have this idea that sexuality gets clearer and more defined as time goes on. ‘We consider that a sign of maturity to figure out who you are. I’ve seen it’s really the opposite.’
