Nico Tortorella is opening up about the first time he had a sexual experience with a man.
The 28-year-old Younger star – who has been open about being sexually fluid – said he was trying to help a friend who was having trouble coming to terms with his sexuality in high school.
“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,” Nico said.
“He was shaken up about it 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,’” Nico continued.
In the interview with Vulture, Nico also added he’s having an easier time identifying as bisexual.
“The more I’m having these conversations, the more comfortable I am identifying as bisexual,” Nico said. “I’ve been so hesitant about using the word for so long, because it does have a negative connotation in our generation.”
