After coming out in 2010, Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin has revealed he would still consider sleeping with a woman if the circumstances were correct.
It’s been six years since the 44-year-old publicly acknowledged he was gay in a statement on his website, and while his comments to Mexican magazine Fama! may raise a few eyebrows, Martin explained his opposition to sexual labels has kept him open to getting intimate with a woman.
“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.
“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.”
Martin, who was in an on-off relationship with Mexican TV host Rebecca de Alba for 14 years prior to coming out, added he wouldn’t consider a long-term relationship again with a woman.
“Men are my thing,” he said.
Martin’s most recent long-term relationship – with stockbroker Carlos González Abella – ended in January 2014. The singer recently ushered in 2016 with a celebratory skimpy Speedo picture which had us all asking the question: Why has he not been snapped up yet?
