Girls, Hetero>LGBTQ+ “Hall Pass”? How should I discuss this with my girlfriend?

I am a closeted bi-sexual guy. The only person that I have told is with my girlfriend of 6 years who is one of the best friends I have ever had (she has known for 4+ years and doesn’t care).

I consider our sex life as decent but I would really like to explore my sexuality more but not at the expense of hurting our relationship, which we both would like to be long-term.

Although she has many of society’s so-called ‘traditional values’, she loves me and is open-minded and supportive to our relationship and I actually think she might be ok with something outside our relationship as long as it was not with another girl.

I am comfortable communicating how I feel but I want to know ‘how’ to do it in a way that won’t be threatening to our relationship and highly concerned that she may lose long-term interest.

Can you help with your opinion about one (or more) of my questions:

1. Would you let your boyfriend explore his bi-sexuality within a ltr?

2. If so, would it be a one time thing or would it be ok if it was periodically ongoing (2-3 times a year) if it was safe and well-communicated?

3. Will my desires change how you would see our relationship over the long-term?

Thanks for helping!
