The global coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot of things about the way we live our lives, and for some those changes can be life-changing.
In the sex column “Ask Anna” published in the Chicago Tribune, “a soon-to-be-32-year-old guy” asked columnist Anna Pulley about the recent changes he’s noticed about his sexual inclinations.
According to the letter-sender, for most of his life, he’s only found himself attracted to girls and has only had relationships with them. However, the pandemic and the quarantine it has brought with it has led him to fantasizing about men and feeling more attracted to them. This despite his insistence that he sees himself with a wife and kids and that he does not want to be gay.
As a response, Pulley said that he is not alone in pondering questions like this as the global coronavirus pandemic continues to range around the world. She cites friends realizing their real gender identity, their sexual orientation, and even that their relationship was not working out.
Pulley told the letter-sender that while she cannot find out for him whether he’s just going through a phase, bisexual, or gay, the only way he will be able to find out is if he goes out there and experiments — once it is safe to do so.
