Meet the flexisexuals

Highlight Story

It all started when Madonna kissed Britney Spears on stage, followed by Katy Perry who sang a song about a girl she kissed — and now it seems the ‘flexisexuality’ trend is fast catching up.

The new word has been coined for the growing number of straight women who flirt with bisexuality. It refers to people who have a sexual preference but refuse to be bound by it.

Pop culture, itself, seems to celebrate that flexibility in songs like Katie Perry’s, ‘I Kissed a Girl (and I Liked It),’ a song that 19-year-old Alisha Garrison said “made girls be more free to do whatever they want,” reports ABC News.

Flexisexual is also known as heteroflexible, pansexual or queer, all subtle variations that mean they are not closing any doors.

A recent ABC report from San Antonio, Texas, said flexisexuality is also part of high school culture.
