Model, actress and activist Emily Ratajkowski has shared her thoughts on sexuality being “on a sliding scale” after appearing to come out on TikTok.
On 10 October, the We Are Your Friends star took to the platform and stitched a video from a user who posed a question to their bisexual followers: “If you identify as bisexual do you own a green velvet couch?”
The video then cut to Ratajkowski, who smiled coyly at the camera before slowly panning to her large velvet green couch.
The model’s post also included Shay Mitchell’s video from 5 October – which featured her stitching the same video to confirm her bisexuality.
In her cover story for Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed that a friend encouraged her to take part in the trend.
“My girl friend came over and was like, ‘b*tch, have you seen the green couch thing?’ She was laughing at me because my green couch is so big,” she explained.

Ratajkowski also discussed her belief that “sexuality is on a sliding scale.”
“I don’t really believe in straight people,” she continued.
She added that she wants to “able to have fun with how I present myself in the world without feeling like I’m a bad feminist or a good feminist. Duh. I don’t want to be a part of your club if you don’t want to have me. It’s fine!”
Ratajkowski has frequently used her platform to discuss her body and sexuality, which was a particular focus of her book My Body last year.
The work is a collection of essays in which the star explores how her body has impacted her career and life.
