Many terms have surfaced in the last few years to rename bisexuality and the fluidity of sexual orientation.
On CNN, when we discussed “I Kissed A Girl (and Liked It),” as requested by the producer and host, I also began to discuss various words that are slang for “bisexual.” Keep in mind that some of these are considered offensive by some people in the GLBT community, and you should not try to label other people using these terms. Yet, in the spirit of keeping up with the lingo, here are additions for the sex slang glossary:
Fauxmosexual: Man or woman who has the appearance of the stereotype of a gay man or lesbian woman, but is heterosexual.
Man or woman who is about a “one” on the Kinsey scale
. He or she is primarily heterosexual, but occasionally is sexual with someone of the same gender, or at the very least fantasizes about the same gender. He or she does not completely identify as a bisexual.
Heteroflexible: Sometimes synonymous with bi-curious (above). Often refers to 17-21 year old girls and women who kiss another girl or woman in front of a group of guys to turn them on.
Dance Floor Lesbian: Like heteroflexible, but only touches, kisses, makes out with other women sometimes, particularly in public.
BUG, Bisexual Until Graduation: Man or woman who is sexual with both genders during college. Recently, this term has begun to also be used for high school students.
LUG, Lesbian Until Graduation: Woman who is exclusively sexual with women during college. Recently, this term has begun to also be used for high school students.
GUG, Gay Until Graduation: Man who is exclusively sexual with men during college. Lesser used term than BUG or LUG.
Define yourself; don’t define yourself. But no matter what, be true to and for yourself.
