50 Men And Women On The Magical Moment They Realized They Were Not Actually Straight

These men and women from Ask Reddit are sharing the moment they discovered their sexuality.

27. I was in fourth grade when gay marriage was legalized, and I remember thinking, “Wow. I wish I was gay, girls are really pretty but I like boys. Guess I’m not.”

Cue my surprise a few years later in sixth grade when finding out bisexual was a thing.

28. For me there wasn’t much of a single moment, more like a week. It started with a therapist apologizing for assuming I’m straight. After that I basically started connecting the dots. When fantasizing about sex, I always kinda forced myself to think of a woman, and my mind would easily drift to men. I would subconsciously look longer at pictures of men, than at pictures of women. When looking at porn, the penis was the most interesting part, and more penises in porn was better porn, that kinda thing. Before going to that therapist I hadn’t given my sexuality much thought and didn’t really care. And all of that happened when I was 18.
