Is Amateur Porn Star/Musclestud Michael Hoffman Bisexual?

This post is also available in: Spanish Portuguese

Michael Hoffman‘s debut video was one where he jerked off and ate his own cum (NSFW). After that came out, he promptly said he wasn’t gay (NSFW), which a lot of gay blogs made hay out of (including us). But considering that his later videos include him in a MMF threesome (NSFW), we started wondering: What if Michael Hoffman wasn’t lying? What if he’s bisexual?

It’s not easy to admit you’re bi. Bi-erasure is a real problem, and the problem can be even more difficult for men. Not only are women more likely to be bi, but it’s a common fallacy that bi men are only using bisexuality as a “safe step” on their journey to really coming out as gay. And for men who are bi, it can be easier to identify as one or the other. In the New York Times, Brad S. Kane of the American Institute of Bisexuality (A.I.B.) says:

Everyone in A.I.B. seems to think I’m a closet bisexual, but there are a host of emotional reasons why I choose to identify as gay. For one thing, it simplifies my life. To come out as bisexual now would be like starting over in some way. My mom and dad would fall over. It was hard enough to convince them that I was gay.

Another reason someone might choose not to identify as bi is a rejection of labels in general. When actress Anne Heche was asked if she was bisexual on 20/20, she replied: “I would never limit myself to saying I would be with a man or a woman.”

Heche’s response gets to another reason someone might not identify as biseuxal: It’s too limiting. Many people instead choose words like “pansexual” or “sexually fluid” as it’s more about embracing the entire spectrum of human sexuality. Saying you’re “bisexual” implies that you are only into men and women; “pansexual” makes clear that you see all gender identities, including genderqueer or agender, as potential partners.

And, of course, biphobia is a real problem. There are a whole host of ugly stereotypes that are only applied to bisexuals: They’re bi only to be able to have more sexual partners, they’re confused, they’re prone to cheating, or that they’re straight people “pretending” to be queer.

The only way to combat biphobia is for bisexuals to be out. Like how many gay stereotypes have been weakened by more visibility, bi-visibility is key. If you identify as pansexual or any other label in the bisexuality umbrella — be out and be yourself if you can do that safely. And if you’re not bi, be there to support your friends who are.
