Ricky Martin has said he is open to having sex with a woman.

The singer – who came out as gay in 2010 – made the admission as he spoke out against ‘sexual labels’.

“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 told Mexican magazine Fama!.

“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.”

However, although he would have sex with women, Martin said he would never consider entering another relationship with a woman.

“Men are my thing,” he clarified.

The 44-year-old – who broke up with Carlos Gonzalez Abella in 2014 – has said he hopes to walk down the aisle with someone he “connects with” in future.

He said: “For me that paper is important. I also love the romanticism behind it.

“I am single now after seven years. I meet people. I’m fine. I meet very handsome men.

“I like to have a conversation, looking into someone’s eyes and finding out their sense of humour,” he added.

“I’m not saying you have to be an Adonis, but you have to connect.”

The singer has six-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino who were born using a surrogate in 2008.
