I, (F25) and my (M26) boyfriend have been dating for almost two years. Things are great, and we have an amazing time together.
When we first got together, we both agreed communication is key to making things work, and we always agreed on communicating our feelings, which led to a happy two years.
When we started getting serious, we both agreed that watching ‘adult entertainment’ was not cheating. I watch it, he watches it, sometimes we even do so together to get in the mood.
I know he watches ‘girl-girl’ entertainment and I have no problems with it, as I am bi and I know how some guys just find it attractive.
However recently, he saw me watching ‘guy-guy’ entertainment as well.
He started freaking out asking why I was watching it and I communicated that I wanted to try something different and see if it would do anything for me, which it did.
He started interrogating me, asking if I wanted to break up and get another boyfriend, or if ‘alone time” with him wasn’t enough to satisfy me. I answered no, which was the truth. Nothing was wrong, I just wanted to watch it, and I ended up liking it.
He was angry and bitter, then blew up when I started comparing it to his own habits of watching two women. It’s the same thing I was doing, just the opposite gender, so what was the problem?
After a fight, where he scolded me by saying “it’s wrong for women to be watching that type of stuff”
I quickly called him out on his double-standard and he left to blow off steam.
I’ve never seen him this mad before but I don’t think he has the rights to be angry with me.
