Many people today who have different sexual identity, orientation and other sexual beliefs are hiding from the truth of what the reality is. Why can’t a man or woman accept who he/she is or whom he or she has chosen to be and be happy?
Many people who have sexual relationships with the same sex are not open to their opposite sex partners. Some have sexual relationships with both men and women, and that’s who they have chosen to be. So, why are they afraid of being real with their lifestyle?
There’re so many husbands and wives who are yet to discover their partners sexual orientation and identity. Many don’t even know that they are married to men and women who practice, prefer or have so much interest in: pansexuality, bisexuality, homosexuality, homoflexible sexuality, heterosexual, monosexuality, polysexuality and all what not.
While some are aware of their partners sexual orientation and identity but chose to be in a contract marriage for mutual benefits. Where I come from, some go as far as marrying the opposite sex to please their parents, religious organizations and for damage control over the suspicion of their ‘unacceptable’ behavior in their communities. They get married to the opposite sex just to cover up their abominable behavior which may be a taboo in the African community they come from. They outwardly carry themselves as husbands and wives, but within they live their lives as they want without either partner complaining. They’re so many people who are married to pansexuals and still haven’t found out till date, due to their double personalities and how well their partners have managed it. So hide this part of their lives for political, cultural, traditional and religious beliefs|reasons.
You may have seen, heard or read the term “pansexual” and have been unsure, confused and/or uncertain about the exact definition. Or you may be wondering what the difference is between pansexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality and/or how pansexuality and polysexuality differ from each other.
Whatever the case may be, in order to truly understand what pansexual actually means, it’s important for you to take a closer look at this sexual orientation and sexual identity.
What Does Pansexual Mean?
In the most basic sense, pansexuality means that an individual is physically, emotionally and/or romantically attracted to a person, regardless of this other person’s gender identity and/or sexuality. In other words, you’re attracted to the person as a whole, and you’re drawn to someone without taking into account how this person identifies and/or this person’s sex. In fact, when you break down this simple word “pansexual,” you’ll notice that “pan” is a prefix that comes from the Greek word that means “all.” Additionally, many people who are pansexuals say that they’re attracted to a person’s spirit or soul—there are no boundaries or limits in terms of who catches their eye.
How is Pansexuality Different From Bisexuality?
While there’s some debate on this issue, it’s been said that bisexuality is a broader term that describes people who are physically, emotionally and/or romantically attracted to both men and women. And when you take an even closer look at the word “bisexuality,” you’ll recognize that the prefix “bi” comes from the Greek word meaning “two.”
With this in mind, pansexuality can be seen as a more specific and detailed term that lets others know even more about a person’s sexual identity. In particular, pansexuals are not only attracted to men and women, but people with other sexual and gender identities as well. For example, a pansexual can be attracted to a person who may identify as transsexual or intersex.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that someone who is bisexual isn’t necessarily restricted in terms of his or her sexual, emotional and/or spiritual attraction to another person. In fact, it’s for this very reason that pansexuality is said to fall under the umbrella of bisexuality. And on an interesting note, there are also people who use the term “bisexual” simply because it’s a descriptor that’s better known and understood in certain circles, but these people are in no way limited in their attraction.
How is Pansexuality Different From Polysexuality?
If you’re wondering what the difference is between pansexuality and polysexuality, it’s helpful to again take a closer look at the prefixes. And while you know that “pan” means “all,” you should notice that “poly” also comes from the Greeks, and it means “many.” In other words, a key distinction between the two is that polysexuals are interested in and attracted to many genders, but not necessarily all.
What Does the Term “Fluid” Mean?
When you’re interested in learning more about pansexuality, it’s not uncommon to come across the word “fluid.” Importantly, those who identify as fluid have an attraction to other people that can change and fluctuate as time goes by. For instance, a person may be attracted to men during his or her childhood, but then later find that he or she is attracted to women. In a word, a person’s sexual orientation can transition and evolve throughout a lifetime. Additionally, those with a fluid sexuality may be more attracted to one gender over another, but they certainly aren’t limited in any sense.
It’s also interesting to note that describing one’s sexuality as fluid is considered to be a more modern term.
What Does Heteroflexible Mean?
When looking more closely at pansexuality and what it means, you may also see the term “heteroflexible.” Specifically, this descriptor enables people to further detail and outline their attraction to others. In essence, people who are heteroflexible are largely attracted to others of the opposite sex in a romantic, emotional and/or physical way, but they also have some minimal attraction to the same sex.
What does Homoflexible Mean?
With this in mind, the term “homoflexible” is used to describe people who are primarily sexually, emotionally and romantically attracted to the same sex, but still have some attraction to the opposite sex as well.
Whatever you choose to do in life, you just have to own up to it and keep it real. Stop living a double standard life. If you’re not comfortable or proud of yourself and what you do, then you have to stop, clean up and get it right.
A lot of relationships, marriages and homes are in a mess today because they were never meant to be. They are together to please the society, their families, and some for political reasons to be seen as decent family men and women; whereas they’re a very big mess to themselves and to the society. Your sexual identity and orientation shouldn’t be hidden if you are CREDIBLE, RESPONSIBLE AND RELIABLE.
