Homoflexible, otherwise known as bi-curious people are described as homosexuals, with occasional interest in the other sex.
The main difference between a bisexual and a “homoflexible” person is in the fact, that the latter would describe themselves as homosexuals, with a small interest in the opposite sex.
The term was initially created as a parallel for the term heteroflexible, which is a heterosexual person, with occasional interests and fantasies, regarding the same sex.
The term bi-curious started appearing after 1984, and heteroflexible was created following this, as a more professional expression.
Spread and Usage
During the late 2000’s, several surveys determined, that over 12% of heterosexual people are having homosexual fantasies and thoughts, and these appear either during late high-school years or at the early 20’s.
The term was first defined on Urban Dictionary in 2003, with a moderate number of other entries being uploaded to the site since then.
