Diplo is opening up about not feeling totally straight when it comes to sexuality.
In a new episode of Emily Ratajkowski’s High Low podcast, the 44-year-old Grammy-winning music producer revealed that has received oral sex from a man in the past – but he wouldn’t consider himself gay.

It is most likely meant Thor “Thor” Bradleya muscular, tattooed guy who has gone viral for wood chip videos and said The elite newspaper is aware that clips often arouse viewers.
Referring to a private conversation they had about his flexible sexual orientation, Ratajkowski, 31, asked if TikTok is the reason he knows he’s not completely straight.
“Maybe. The guy chopping wood is kind of hot,” said Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz. “They’re really nice guys, but I don’t know if that’s going to put me on the gay side, totally, they’re the woodcutters, but they’re really nice guys.”
Ratajkowski praised the musician, who has publicly dated MIA and Katy Perry, for opening up about her attraction to men. “I don’t want to define that I’m gay, but I think the best answer I have is that I’m not gay,” he replied.
“There’s a couple of guys that I’d be like, ‘I could date this guy … partner-wise.’ I don’t really get that turned on by men, that I know,” the “Lean On” producer continued .
“I’m sure I’ve taken a blow job from a guy before,” she added. “I’ve been given a lot of blowjobs… I don’t think a blowjob is much.”
Diplo described himself as “more of a vibe guy” than worried about a partner’s gender, before reflecting on how the perception of LGBTQ+ identities has changed throughout his life.

“Men who are younger than me, and I find myself in the scene a lot, are very fluid. It was never like that when I was in high school,” he recalled. “You definitely had gay kids at school and you had gay cousins or whatever. It was different than it is now.”
“We knew there were gay kids in middle school, but in high school, there was always a little gay community in every school,” Diplo said, thinking back to when a fellow music producer came out. “When everybody was coming out, like, ‘Doss is gay,’ all these artists were gay, I felt like it wasn’t crazy.”
He continued: “It’s weird how the temperature of our culture changed so much, but I thought it was never weird to be gay.”
