Ricky Martin reveals he's 'open' to sleeping with women
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.” ricky-martin 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.
