Nico Tortorella recalls first sexual encounter with another man as he confirms he's bisexual

2016-11-29
Younger star Nico Tortorella, who previously came out as "sexually fluid" earlier this year, has confirmed that he identifies as bisexual, explaining that he has come to feel more comfortable with the term. The 28-year-old actor opened up about his identity in a recent interview with Vulture, and revealed that his first sexual experience with a man wasn't quite the picture of romance. "This is going to sound fucked,  but I knew that he was really struggling," he explained. And I was like, 'Look, if I hook up with him, maybe it will make things easier for him'. He continued: "We hooked up. There was no arse-play at all. It was just dick-to-mouth. He was shaken up about it 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'." Tortorella, who was previously in a relationship with internet personality Kyle Kreiger, says that the more time has passed since he first opened up about his sexuality, the more he's found himself happy to describe himself as bisexual - even if there's still stigma attached to the term. "The more I’m having these conversations, the more comfortable I am identifying as bisexual," the Scream 4 actor said. "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 who’s going to throw that away because I think I have a more colorful word." However, he doesn't believe he'll end up marrying, or having kids with a man, adding: "I don’t even like hanging out with dudes for the most part."
