We go to "pan" events, and see women of all sexual stripes and expressions.  Our community treats female bisexuality as the "norm." Women identify as "switches” with ease. But what about men?  Where is the sexual variety among men at "pan" events? Are men only "hetero" or "gay"?  Do men feel comfortable identifying as a "switch"?  Join us for a lively panel discussion and community chat on these and other issues related to the little-talked-about topic of male sexual fluidity.
