‘Younger’ star Nico Tortorella opens up about sleeping with a guy for the first time
‘Younger’ star Nico Tortorella has opened up about sleeping with a guy for the first time.
Tortorella earlier this year came out as “sexually fluid”, rejecting other labels, but is still discussing his sexual orientation.
The Scream 4 star opened up to the Vulture blog to say that he first had a same-sex experience when he was in high school with a friend who was struggling with his own sexual orientation.
He said: “This is going to sound f*cked, but I knew that he was really struggling. And I was like, ‘Look, if I hook up with him, maybe it will make things easier for him,.'”
“We hooked up. There was no assplay at all. It was just dick-to-mouth here,” he adds.
His friend, he said was “shaken up about it” afterwards, continuing: “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.’”
Of his own label, Tortorella said he identifies mainly as bisexual now, and that he’d prefer to identify as “emotionally fluid”.
“The more I’m having these conversations, the more comfortable I am identifying as bisexual,… I’ve been so hesitant about using the word for so long, because it does have a negative connotation in our generation.”
Continuing he adds: “People fought for so long for that ‘B’ in LGBT, and I refuse to be the person that’s going to throw that away because I think I have a more colourful word.”
Tortorella recently opened up about being in a relationship with Kyle Krieger, an Instagram personality and hair stylist.
