What does pansexual mean?
Miley Cyrus is pansexual.
Zac Goldsmith is – okay, no, the former London mayoral candidate is not pansexual.
In fact, his embarrassing stumble during the run-up to last year’s election, when he said he was pansexual for London, is a perfect example of why it’s important to know what this term means.
So what does pansexual actually mean?
It’s a relatively new term, and like all new terminology around sex, it’s got many people confused.
But since two percent of young Americans now identify as pansexual – with that figure likely to increase as people learn more about sexualities – you might as well find out.
When Miley came out as pansexual in 2015, it was after it was widely reported that she was bisexual.
