I love men and women equally, and so I would definitely want one man, one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people.
I’m not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences. I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don’t feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more.
