Nico Tortorella Talks Bisexuality & How He Comfortable With Identifying As Bisexual

Months after revealing he's sexually fluid, Younger star Nico Tortorella has decided to open up even more about his sexuality.

In fact, in a new interview with New York Magazine’s Vulture blog, the 28-year-old actually shared how he now identifies as bisexual!. He traced his unorthodox view of sexuality back to high school, when he had his first sexual experience with another man. His partner, he said, was a closeted friend who was struggling to come to terms with being bisexual.

Recalling his first sexual experience with another guy back in high school, he described trying to help a closeted gay friend. Nico revealed:

“This is going to sound fucked, but I knew that he was really struggling. And I was like, ‘Look, if I hook up with him, maybe it will make things easier for him,’” Tortorella said. “We hooked up. There was no assplay at all. It was just dick-to-mouth here.”

The friend, Tortorella recalled, had a very emotional reaction to the experience. “He was shaken up about it,” he said, “and I was like, ‘It’s fine. What happened last night doesn’t make you the person that you are. Why are you putting so much weight on it?’ And when that happened, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m thinking about this differently than everyone else is thinking about it.’”

Interestingly, Tortorella now says he’d prefer to identify as “emotionally fluid,” and sees himself as more bisexual women and men than anything else."The more I'm having these conversations, the more comfortable I am identifying as bisexual. I've been so hesitant about using the word for so long, because it does have a negative connotation in our generation. People fought for so long for that ‘B' in LGBT, and I refuse to be the person that's going to throw that away because I think I have a more colorful word." he said.

Tortorella won’t be shying away from the subject of sexuality anytime soon. His podcast, “The Love Bomb,” features plenty of intimate discussions about gender, sex and relationships. The actor is also reportedly at work on a TV series that will tackle similar themes.

Of course, Nico isn't the only star to come out as bisexul!
