I think a lot of people — especially in women — they tend to have really bad responses to it. They think you can’t have a monogamous relationship. By the way, it doesn’t really matter if you want to be not-monogamous or not. Your sexuality doesn’t really dictate that. Being bisexual doesn’t mean I’m suddenly willy-nilly running around.’
