I am a 22 year-old single woman. My boyfriend and I just broke up, and we have a 12 month-old son together. I've been attracted to other women since high school, but have never had the guts to further explore my curiosity. I really want to try it now, but things are more complicated because I have a son. Do I explore my fantasies, or bottle them up and live a normal, heterosexual life?

If your idea of a normal, heterosexual life is humping the back of your couch after little Timmy's hottypants mom drops him off for playgroup, then go for it. But wouldn't it be so much more fun to make out with her instead?
