I kissed a girl
“Did you like it?” “Well, I don’t know, it’s different. We were drunk and it just kind of happened…”. If this sounds familiar and you’re concerned about your sexuality, don’t be.

Kissing a girl once or twice doesn’t necessarily mean that you are bisexual or homosexual. Here’s why…

If such an incident occurs, it usually involves straight women within the age group of 18-35, and most of the time, there is a lot of booze involved.

Some women do this (French kiss their girlfriends) in order to attract attention, usually from a specific guy or group of guys; they have no other intention but to accomplish this.

I liked it…

But then again, have you ever heard the song I kissed a girl by Katy Perry? Well, the chorus doesn’t end there. She “liked it,” and that’s exactly what happens with some women. This can happen even if she’s happily involved with a man…but that’s when guys start to worry.

He doesn’t have to worry

According to information on hubpages.com, you and your boyfriend have nothing to worry about. While straight women can still appreciate another woman’s body, they just don’t appreciate it in a sexual way; they are not attracted to it like men are.

Furthermore, if a straight woman kisses another woman, usually the woman is within her immediate circle of friends, so both are certain about their sexuality and see it as a way of having fun. If you, however, kissed a number of random girls and the number exceeds the number of men, there may be reason to question your orientation.

Some useful advice

If you are struggling to associate with either one of the incidents mentioned above, consider the following advice by human sexuality professor Elizabeth Schroeder: She states that guys and girls “discover” their feelings of sexual attraction; they don’t just decide who they’re attracted to.

She adds that the only way a person will know whether what she’s doing is experimentation or part of realising she is homosexual or bisexual is to experience it and reflect on the feelings that come up as a result of the experience.

I think I want to do it again

If you kissed a girl and you liked it, remember that you are not necessarily gay. But if you liked it too much and want to experience it again and again and…again, rather follow Schroeder’s advice and find out who you are. You’ll save yourself (and some interested men!) a lot of heartache.
