Late-blooming lesbians: women can switch sexualities as they mature - TelegraphOne study even indicates that as many as two-thirds of women who feel lesbian attractions may have changed their sexual orientation over time.

Christan Moran, a researcher at Southern Connecticut State University in the US, said that many women who develop lesbian feelings in later life refuse to “come out” for fear of society’s reaction.
