      Pretty good interview, however I object to Oprah’s asking them if they had ever had sex with women; name one heterosexual parent in a relationship to whom Oprah asked if they had ever had homosexual sex? Harris’s dad (Republican & veteran) used term “gay lifestyle”.

      @Jeff Atwood: Agreed, I thought it was a great interview, really humanized them both but I thought oprah’s question was fair and it came only after she asked them if they had “dated women” to get emphasis. She did ask Ted Haggard the self proclaiming straight guy if he had sex with men. I thought it was a natural question to ask of someone that said they dated a woman.

      Burtka is obvious the girl in the relationship. His odd laughing and strange excitement during the interview was so off putting. Sorry, but I stick by my original statement that the guy is just WEIRD.

      I would have shot back, “Oprah, have YOU ever had sex with a woman?”

      I used to like NPH, but he comes off as smug in recent years. Also, why Doperah so nosey? Why does she ask gays if they’ve ever had sex with the opposite sex? Why doesn’t she ever ask her straight guests if they’ve ever slept with the same gender?

      @Doperah: she asked because she read that they had both dated women

      A great, loving, well-adjusted gay couple. Thank you God!
      Terrific interview! Bravo to Neal, David & Oprah!
      This show made me feel good all over. (The idiotic comments on Queerty – not so much!)

      I don’t believe either of them ever had sex with women, especialy David. If they did, I bet it was only once. I can’t imagine either of them being able to get it up for a woman.

      Elle-Does NPH cheat on his partner with women? Is NPH bisexual?

      Hephaestion -Do you actually believe everything the media tells you? I doubt they’re that well adjusted, loving, and BIG surprise! They’re both white!

      I agree with Pedr0te these guys are B-list celebrities, mainstream, and your stereotypical very wealthy gay white male couple. Nothing special here. I don’t see the relationship lasting at all.

      Elle-Say what? Is NPH bisexual? Do you have proof?

      I for one liked the ‘sex with woman’ question. Why not? Gay men don’t come out of a vaccum. they both went through phases of gradual self-understanding and ‘dating’ women was a part of that. Why not address the awkward, real-life question. It doesn’t make them any less gay. just proves that sexuality is a continnum and your sexual activities (often influenced by the type of society you grow up in) are not the same as your sexual orientation. It makes a case for being yourself in the end.

      The only problem I have with NPH and this interview is that when receiving praises or discussing possibility of being ”role model” he doesn’t mention the many, many other gay families out there – well-known as well as regular people – who are doing the same thing.
