Ricky Martin Suggests He’s Bisexual But Rejects The Label: “I Like To Enjoy Sex In Total Freedom”

Any takers?

Ricky Martin maintains he’s “against sexual labels” in a new interview with Mexican magazine Fama! but suggests he may be bisexual, as he’s “open to having sex with a woman if I feel desire.”

The 44-year-old pop star wasn’t so against sexual labels in 2010, when he came out as gay in a blog post on his website. “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man,” he wrote at the time. “I am very blessed to be who I am.”

Though he still considers himself gay, Ricky told Fama! he’s not opposed to sleeping with women.


“I know that I like both men and women, I’m against sexual labels, we are simply human beings with emotional and sexual needs,” he said, according to a translation provided by Latin Post. “I am gay, men fascinate me, but I like to enjoy sex in total freedom, so I’m open to having sex with a woman if I feel desire.”

“Men are my thing,” he clarified, noting that he wouldn’t ever enter a relationship with a woman.

Ricky has been happily single since January 2014, when he split from three-year boyfriend Carlos González Abella. He’s rumored to be dating Spanish singer Pablo Alborán, though neither have confirmed nor denied the rumors.
