The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revealed that a fairly large percentage of people who identify as straight have had sex with someone of the same gender.

The study used data from the 2011-2013 National Survey of Family Growth, which polled 9,175 people between the ages of 18 and 44 across the US.

Researchers found that of people who identified as straight, 12.6% of women and 2.8% of men had engaged in some form of ‘same-sex sexual contact’.

Which doesn’t sound like much, but if you think like this then of your ten straight female friends, one of them has probably had sex with another woman – which actually sounds quite plausible.

The study also found that people who identified as gay or bisexual had experienced hetero-sex – possibly because they experimented before coming out.

So basically, we’re all (to some degree) sexual fluid, and it’s good to try new things.

So, here’s to all the bi-curious straight girls out there. Yeah!
