Former lesbians, or “hasbians,” are women who used to date other women but now only date men. Hasbians are different from lesbians, we’re told by Details magazine, because they are no longer attracted to other women. We’re also told there’s a particular appeal, among heterosexual men, to date these hasbians, or at least “that the reason modern men are more ably attracting hasbians is that modern men are, quite simply, offering these women something close to what they had before.” Which begs the question: Can this work the other way? Can men, who used to date other men but somehow flipped the switch and now only date women, find “something close to what they had before” in today’s women?
