Bi-curious is a phenomenon in which people of a heterosexual or homosexual sexual orientation have some curiosity for sexual activity with a person of the sex they do not favor, and they wish to distinguish themselves from the bisexual label. The term is sometimes used to describe a broad continuum of sexual orientation between heterosexuality and bisexuality. The term bi-curious implies that the individual has either no or limited homosexual experience in the case of heterosexual individuals, or no or limited heterosexual experience in the case of homosexual individuals, but they may continue to self-identify as bi-curious if they do not feel they have adequately explored these feelings, or if they do not wish to identify as bisexual.
