WOULD YOU DATE A BI-CURIOUS WOMAN? CHARLOTTE DINGLE TALKED TO LESBIANS AND BI WOMEN AND FOUND OPINION DIVIDED

Bi-curious (or “questioning”) women don’t always get the best press, let’s face it. That is, unless they’re hot celebs putting it on for the paps and the hetero masses. Gather a group of lesbian and bi friends and you can guarantee that at least half of them will have some tale of woe to relate involving a girl who “experimented” with them, chewed them up and spat them out. On the other hand, however, you might also hear a few stories of honest, nostrings fun which left everyone smiling. So what do we really think about the phenomenon of bi-curiosity?

First let’s take a look at the definition. Some argue that bi-curiosity is the state of trying or wanting to try a sexual experience with a woman, but not being entirely sure that you’re actually bisexual. Others say that a bi-curious woman is just a bisexual woman who hasn’t had a sexual experience with a woman yet, but has been with a man.
