Ricky Martin 'Open' to Sex With Women, But Doesn't Call Himself Bi

'I’m against sexual labels, we are simply human beings with emotional and sexual needs,' says the singer-actor in a new interview.

Ricky Martin, who came out as gay in 2010, now says he's "open to having sex with a woman," but that doesn't mean he identifies as bisexual.

"I know that I like both men and women, I'm against sexual labels, we are simply human beings with emotional and sexual needs," Martin told Mexican magazine Fama!, according to an English translation by the Latin Post.

"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," added the singer-actor. He said he wouldn't be interested in an ongoing relationship with a woman, though. "Men are my thing," he explained.

Martin, the father of twin sons, broke up with stockbroker Carlos Gonzalez Abella in January 2014 after a three-year relationship. It's lately been rumored that Martin is dating Spanish singer Pablo Alboran, but neither man has confirmed or denied the relationship, the Latin Post reports.
