What is heteroflexibility

Heteroflexible: Everything you need to know about a rare sexuality

You may know all about bisexuals, homosexuals, and even asexuals, but heteroflexible is a sexuality you may not know about - but should.

Everyone has their own type. They know the kind of person they prefer to date. You might like blondes, brunettes, tall people, short people, red heads, muscular and fat people, to name a few. But there are also people out there - as I'm sure you already know - who also like different genders. Guys like guys, girls like girls, and some even like both like the heteroflexible. It's the way they were born and really is no different from liking a certain type of person.

What is heteroflexible?

Many people closely relate heteroflexible people to bisexuals. That said, they have romantic and attractive desires for both sexes.

The difference with heteroflexible people to someone who allies as bisexual, they identify more with the straightforwardness. So they usually see each other in a relationship and find "The One" in the opposite sex. They also have sexual and romantic desires and thoughts about the same gender.

What you should know about heteroflexible people

There is a lot to learn about this mysterious sexuality. People are still trying to understand what it really means. Are you straight, bisexual, gay? If you really want to know about this unique sexual orientation, read on for everything you need to know and more.


When someone identifies as heteroflexible, people who do not understand this sexuality become uncomfortable and form their own opinions, which are often wrong. Here are the most common misconceptions about heteroflexible people.

# 1 You're straight but going through a phase. Many people who find someone to be heteroflexible immediately sexuality as a "phase" the person will go through. They say they are just experimenting but are ultimately straight.

This misunderstanding fails to take into account that people who identify as heteroflexible have no choice. Even if they end up with someone of the opposite sex, they are technically not straight.

# 2 They are bisexual but they don't want to admit it. People often become heteroflexible and bisexually confused. They think that anyone who identifies as heteroflexible is only bisexual but doesn't want to admit that sexuality.

This is wrong. While heteroflexible and bisexual contain striking similarities, they are not the same. Bisexual means that you are attracted to both sexes relatively equally. While heteroflexible means you are more attracted to the opposite sex, but you are still attracted to your gender.

# 3 They just want the attention. The biggest misconception about this sexuality involves the desire for attention. People think that this is just trying to get certain people's attention.

And yes, drunk college girls hang out with other drunk college girls to get attention from guys, so that might be the origin of this idea. But being really heteroflexible is NOT just paying attention.


Misunderstandings get a little out of hand when certain people don't really understand what it means to be heteroflexible. Look at the truths of this sexuality.

# 1 You're not straight. Heteroflexible people tend to be more interested in the opposite sex - just like straight people - but they're not entirely straight. Because they have an attraction for the opposite sex, it means they cannot identify as 100%.

You are only allowed to be with the opposite sex, but still be heteroflexible. If they experience an attraction to their own gender and still don't respond to it, they are heteroflexible. Even if "straight" is in the name of this sexuality, they are not.

# 2 But they're not completely bisexual either. The line between heteroflexible and bisexual remains very blurred. While heteroflexible can be a category among bisexuals, they are not the same.

Those who are heteroflexible prefer the opposite sex over their own gender; while bisexuals experience equal pleasure with both. While others mistakenly categorize them as bisexual, they are not that sexuality.

# 3 They have a hard time explaining their feelings to other people. Can you imagine explaining to your immediate partner that you are in love with them, but that you are also attracted to your gender? Not exactly easy. It is often difficult to find someone who does not understand these types of feelings right away. It can even lead to backlash and ruin a relationship if the other person refuses.

# 4 You can confuse yourself about how you're feeling. Some heteroflexible people have difficulty understanding how they are feeling. In a moment, they experience intense feelings for their partner. Then sometimes they want to experiment with their own gender. Just because they feel that way doesn't mean they fully understand.

# 5 It's difficult to find someone who understands their feelings. Sometimes ruined relationships arise between a heterosexual partner and a heteroflexible partner

It's hard for people who are heteroflexible to find someone who not only accepts them, but also finds someone who really understands how they are feeling.


As you can imagine, society perceives people who do not identify as specific paths. That is, there are disadvantages to being heteroflexible in a society that avoids this way of life.

# 1 People don't take them seriously. People often roll the eyes of those they consider heteroflexible. Because they don't take anyone who can't take a sexuality seriously. While heteroflexible is certainly a sexuality, other people have a hard time accepting it and don't take those who are serious.

# 2 Finding a partner okay with this lifestyle can be difficult. Yes, some people accept the ones they love in their entirety and that's great! But there are also people who do not accept someone who identifies as heteroflexible based on their own beliefs.

It takes a long time to open up to your partner if you're not sure how they might take the news means you can't really be yourself. You always hold back, unable to give it all of yourself.

# 3 It's confusing being heteroflexible when you don't know you are. If you've been someone who has always been straightforward and semi-curious about your own gender, it can be very confusing. It makes you feel like something is wrong with you when you are really heteroflexible.

There are probably a lot of people out there who don't know they are heteroflexible but live their lives in mild confusion. Never quite knowing where they belong in this confusing world.
